The Oakland Raiders opened free agency on Tuesday by agreeing to a five-year, $42.5 million contract with offensive lineman Rodger Saffold and keeping oft-injured running back Darren McFadden on a one-year deal worth up to $4 million.
The Chiefs (8-0), off to their best start since 2003, built a 20-7 lead late in the first half before the Browns (3-4) made it a game.
With the great majority of fantasy drafts taking place in the next 10 days, consider this a public service. Here is my 10-Foot-Pole Team — eight players, in reverse order of rankings, I wouldn't (and you shouldn't) touch:
In the course of roughly 200 mock drafts over the past month (yeah, I know), a clear pattern has emerged. The top nine players in ESPN's overall rankings are running backs. The top 13 RBs have gone in the top 20 picks of roughly 195 of those 200 mock drafts. And unless you're in a league that really favors QBs, that's what you can expect in your real-life drafts.

Philip Rivers threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to Malcom Floyd and the San Diego Chargers took a 16-6 lead over the mistake-prone Oakland Raiders through three quarters Monday night in the season opener for both teams.
Robert Meacham caught a 46-yard pass from Philip Rivers to set up a 23-yard field goal by Nate Kaeding, and the San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders were tied 3-3 after the first quarter Monday night.
Every player in the NFL is prone to injury. So putting together a team of NFL players is an inherently risky endeavor. But you can mitigate that risk by avoiding players with injury-related red flags.
I'm on my second straight week losing sleep doing mock drafts. But to prove I'm still in possession of my faculties, I had a recent mock critiqued by Jonathan Bales, author of "Fantasy Football for Smart People."
In an offseason full of changes for the Oakland Raiders, perhaps the most positive development has been the health of a returning star.
If it seems to the average college football fan that Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson and running back Knile Davis have been everywhere this summer, it's with good reason.
"If somebody's got an answer for it I would love for them to tell me because I need that," McFadden said when asked how to avoid injuries.
After the punishing win over the Jets, McFadden said Oakland's new coach, Hue Jackson, "always tells us we're building a bully."
