Raiders October 6th home game moved to late night for baseball playoffs

According to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, the Oakland Raiders October 6th home game versus the San Diego Chargers has been moved back to late Sunday night to accomodate the Oakland Athletics, who are hosting Game Two of the American League Division Series in the Oakland Colliseum, which needs to be changed over from baseball to football after the game. The Raiders home game will now start at 11:35 p.m. ET and will be televised on the NFL Network.

Fantasy Analysis:

It is going to be a long night for fantasy owners, especially on the east coast. A majority of fantasy owners were likely staying away from most of the options in the Oakland offense, but now with such a late start, it gives quarterback Terrelle Pryor @TerrellePryor (concussion) even more time to recover and be ready to go. Their top two running backs, Darren McFadden @dmcfadden20 (hamstring) and Marcel Reece @CelReece45 (knee) also benefit from the late start. As of right now, McFadden is the more likely of the two to be active. If you have another option, it might be wise to use them earlier in the day instead of taking a chance that McFadden is active.
