Now looking to Monday's season opener against the Denver Broncos, the Raiders (+2) will likely lean on Tyrell Williams, J.J. Nelson, Hunter Renfrow, Ryan Grant and Dwayne Harris at the wide receiver position, which is troubling to say the least.
Mere hours after his release, Brown signed a one-year deal with the New England Patriots.
He will not be available for New England in Week 1, but should make up one of the NFL's deadliest offenses beginning in Week 2.
This is a developing situation, so be sure to take a look at the updated data for the Broncos/Raiders contest on the "Games" tab before kickoff. In Week 1, all betting data in that game is free to everyone!
