DeAndre Washington listed as third-string on Raiders' initial depth chart

Oakland Raiders running back DeAndre Washington is listed behind Taiwan Jones' on the team's initial depth chart.

What It Means:

The Raiders, like every team, stress it's just an initial guess, and nothing concrete. That's especially true in this instance. Washington is a raw fifth-rounder out of Texas Tech, but Jones is not a legitimate NFL running back. The Raiders are simply making Washington jump through the normal rookie hoops. The team has used ample breath talking him up. Barring a preseason catastrophe, Washington will be backing up Latavius Murray in Week 1, and immediately siphoning snaps on passing downs.

Our algorithms project Washington for a solid role in Oakland's backfield this year, with 104 carries for 396 rush yards and 2.15 touchdowns, to go with 38 receptions for 292 yards receiving and 1.19 scores.
