citsalp Posted October 14, 2015 Share Posted October 14, 2015 Published Tue Oct 13 8:32:00 p.m. ET 2015 (Rotoworld)Raiders ILB Curtis Lofton was benched in favor of rookie Neiron Ball in Week 5 against the Broncos.Analysis: Lofton has been one of Pro Football Focus' worst inside linebackers through three weeks, and Ball got the start and played 36 snaps to Lofton's 22. Ball's strength is in coverage, and he was used primarily to stop Broncos TE Owen Daniels. It worked, as Daniels recorded zero catches on five targets. The Raiders gave Lofton $10 million guaranteed in March after he was released by the Saints. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
