Raiders News: 8 players in the Fantasy Football Top 300
We are getting closer to fantasy football draft season and while Individual Defensive Player (IDP) formats are a bit of a niche market, they can at least give us something to talk about over the summer.
Jonathon Marci of Focus on professional football released its Top 300 – which takes into account a player’s age as well as stats since most IDP leagues are also dynasty leagues – and gave the Las Vegas Raiders some love by including eight Raider defenders.

There may be no greater lifter on this 2021 offseason roster than Crosby, who improved and established himself as one of the most dominant passers in the NFL. He led the NFL in total pressure (101) – 20 more than the next closest defenseman – and was second in his position in pass-rush rating (91.8), behind only Myles Garrett. Crosby’s eight sacks over the year don’t tell the whole story. His forward metrics are elite, which is why he rocketed up this list in 2022 despite the modest sack total.
