Olawale caught one pass on one target for 10 yards in Sunday's regular season finale against the Broncos.
EDGE Analysis
Olawale finished the 2016 regular season with 47 yards rushing and two touchdowns on 17 carries to go along with 12 receptions on 14 targets for 227 yards and one score in 16 games. The 27-year-old has two years remaining on his contract with Oakland, but he figures to remain an afterthought in terms of fantasy attention.

Olawale caught three passes for 90 yards and a touchdown on three targets during Monday's win over the Texans.
EDGE Analysis
Olawale was one of the unlikeliest options to lead the Raiders' in receiving on Monday, but his 75-yard catch and run touchdown in the fourth quarter tied the game up, and ultimately led to the team's eighth win of the season. The fullback figures to remain fantasy irrelevant, but he likely enjoyed the spotlight for once.

Olawale (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's contest against the Broncos.
EDGE Analysis
Olawale was limited in practice throughout the week and is likely on the probable side of questionable. In the event he's held out look for Taiwan Jones and Jalen Richard to see some extra reps.

Olawale (ankle) was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice.
EDGE Analysis
It isn't clear when Olawale suffered the injury, but his status is worth monitoring throughout the week in case he's ultimately unable to play against the Broncos on Sunday.

Olawale rushed six times for 22 yards and a touchdown to go along with one catch for two yards on his lone target during Sunday's win over the Chargers.
EDGE Analysis
With usual starting running back Latavius Murray (toe) ruled out, Olawale was given the opportunity to bang in a touchdown from the one-yard line during the fourth quarter. If Murray remains out Week 6 against the Chiefs, Olawale could continue to see touches in short-yardage situations, but his value is limited as rookies Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington were the primary options out of the backfield.

Olawale carried the ball once for a two-yard touchdown during Sunday's win over the Saints.
EDGE Analysis
Olawale capitalized on his goal line carry in the Raiders' season debut, pounding his way into the end zone as he was given just one rush throughout the entire game. He'll continue to start at fullback with veteran Marcel Reese (suspension) sidelined until Week 4.

Olawale is listed as the Raiders' starting fullback heading into the team's preseason opener against the Cardinals, Eddie Paskal of Raiders.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Olawale will get the nod at starting fullback while Marcel Reece, who's suspended until Week 4 of the regular season, remains sidelined. There's a chance he could earn the starting job outright after the first three weeks of the season, but he'll need a deal of offensive production in order to overtake the veteran for good.

Olawale caught his only target for 14 yards in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs.
EDGE Analysis
The third-year running back played 14 games this season, as he rushed for 110 yards and a touchdown on 24 carries. Olawale also added nine receptions for 84 yards in the passing game. He signed a three-year extension back in early December which speaks to how much the Raiders like his all-around talent. Olawale should compete for the primary back-up spot at running back behind Latavius Murray next season, but his fantasy value will still be up in the air.

Olawale signed a three-year deal with the Raiders on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson the Houston Chronicle reports.
EDGE Analysis
Olawale has separated from the fringe running backs in Oakland behind Latavius Murray, totaling 14 carries for 88 yards, five catches (on seven targets) for 51 yards, and one rushing touchdown over the last five games. Posting 6.3 YPC during that run likely helped Olawale lock down a commitment from the Raiders, but his status as a multi-purpose back doesn't hurt either.
