News: Raiders RB Manase Tonga had two catches for 12 yards Saturday at Kansas City in Week 16. He had two targets in the game.
Analysis: Tonga is a low-end Fantasy RB in the majority of leagues. Ignore him in all formats in Week 17 against San Diego.
News: According to the Sacramento Bee, the Raiders have placed LB Ricky Brown on injured reserve because of a concussion. FB Manase Tonga was promoted to the active roster to take Brown's spot.
Analysis: Tonga will be primarily a special teamer and blocker for Darren McFadden and Michael Bush, so his Fantasy value is extremely low. Owners can leave Tonga on the wire.
News: Coach Tom Cable announced the signing of seven players to the practice squad Sunday: S Stevie Brown, WR Shaun Bodiford, DT Kellen Heard, LB Slade Norris, CB Joe Porter, OL Alex Parsons and FB Manase Tonga. The Raiders have one spot left to fill.
Analysis: None of these players are expected to be regular stat contributors for the Raiders this season. They can be kept off rosters in Fantasy play.
