Derek Hagan WR TB 15 Days
Free agent WR Derek Hagan wants to try and play one more season.
It's a slow news day, as we're in the lull period between free agency and the draft. Hagan is entering his age-30 season and couldn't beat out Tiquan Underwood or Kevin Ogletree for a job with the Bucs last summer. He caught 20 balls for Oakland in 2012. He was on the street for all of last season.

Free agent WR Derek Hagan worked out for the Jets this week.
Hagan, 28, has bounced around the league since entering the league as a third-round pick of the Dolphins in 2006. He caught 20 passes for 259 yards in 14 games with the Raiders last season. The Jets are starving for depth.

Coach Dennis Allen said Derek Hagan will start Sunday's game against the Saints if Darrius Heyward-Bey (hamstring) is inactive.

Derek Hagan caught all four of his Week 6 targets for 85 yards in the Raiders' Week 6 loss to Atlanta.
Darrius Heyward-Bey got the start, but Hagan appeared to play just as many snaps against the Falcons and got open regularly downfield as a viable No. 2 pass option for Carson Palmer. Hagan has long been a solid real-life NFL player. He just won't offer much upside as a Week 7 bye-week play against Jacksonville, playing behind Denarius Moore and Heyward-Bey.

Starting in place of Darrius Heyward-Bey (concussion), Derek Hagan caught two passes for 18 yards in Oakland's Week 4 loss.
Hagan drew five targets as he failed to clear 20 yards for the second time in four games. "Starting" or not, Hagan simply isn't a viable fantasy option, even in exceptionally-deep leagues. He's on pace for a yawn-inducing line of 40/408/0.

The Contra Costa Times' Steve Corkran expects Derek Hagan to be the Raiders' starting Z receiver in Week 4 against the Broncos.
Unless the Broncos are using him to shadow opposing No. 1s -- which they've barely done this year -- Champ Bailey most often squares off with Z receivers. Hagan would have a brutal matchup in that scenario. Look for Denarius Moore to pace Oakland in targets Sunday. Rod Streater figures to play in the slot.

Derek Hagan caught four passes for 44 yards in Week 1.
Hagan was signed off the street just four days prior to Monday night's tilt with the Chargers. So, overall he did an admirable job filling in. Hagan was targeted seven times on the night on mostly short passes over the middle. He has no fantasy value going forward.

Raiders signed WR Derek Hagan, formerly of the Bills.
The addition of 28-year-old Hagan may indicate the Raiders don't envision Denarius Moore (hamstring) playing Monday night against the Chargers. A journeyman possession receiver, Hagan has 109 career catches over six seasons. He could be active for a reserve role in Week 1, but isn't on the fantasy radar.
