31. Oakland Raiders

To say the Oakland Raiders have been one of the biggest disappointments from the first half of the 2018 season would be a huge understatement when looking at how the team will be coming out of the bye week with only one win to show for it. Spending all of that money on Jon Gruden was supposed to help the Raiders get back on the winning track after missing out on the playoffs last year, but that has been far from the case so far.

If that wasn’t frustrating enough, Oakland received the crushing news that Marshawn Lynch is going to miss a good amount of time as a result of a groin injury, putting even more pressure on Derek Carr under center. Two years ago, the Raiders quarterback seemed to be on his way to becoming one of the league’s next best players under center, and while that may still be the case, Carr still has a long way to go.

Whether Amari Cooper is part of the picture down the road, that’s tough to tell since trade rumors have been swirling for the wideout, which would be an interesting move since Carr already needs all of the help he can get on offense now that Lynch is out. Either way, this season has been a complete disaster for Oakland, and the worst part is it doesn’t look like things are going to get better anytime soon.
