Doss officially signed his contract tender with the Raiders on Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Analysis: The Raiders tendered the 24-year-old as an exclusive rights free agent in March, so it was only a matter of time before he put pen to paper. Doss appeared in eight games as an undrafted rookie and caught 11 of 14 targets for 133 yards.
Doss was tendered a contract by the Raiders on Friday, Jerry McDonald of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Analysis: The 23-year-old caught 11 passes for 133 yards as an undrafted rookie in 2019, so it's not a major surprise to see the team tender him a contract as an exclusive rights free agent. Doss figures to be a practice-squad candidate while fighting for a roster spot in training camp.
Doss, who was a healthy scratch for the Raiders' last two games, finishes the 2019 campaign with 11 receptions for 133 yards on 14 targets in eight contests.
Analysis: Doss caught a collective five passes for 54 yards while logging at least 28 offensive snaps in each game from Week 13 to Week 15, but he was somewhat surprisingly demoted to inactive status against the Chargers and Broncos to end the season on a sour note. The undrafted rookie could be a practice squad candidate in 2020, although Oakland still has question marks at receiver behind Tyrell Williams (foot) and Hunter Renfrow.
Doss (coach's decision) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Broncos, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Analysis: It will be the second straight game that Doss is a healthy scratch, which is surprising after he caught five of six targets for 54 yards in his past three games prior. With the undrafted rookie sidelined, Rico Gafford appears likely again to see an uptick in depth receiver snaps.
Doss (coach's decision) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Myles Simmons of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
Analysis: This news is somewhat surprising given the fact that Doss has been active in the passing game, nabbing five of six targets for 54 yards in his past three games. With the undrafted rookie sidelined, look for an uptick in depth snaps for Rico Gafford and Marcell Ateman.
Doss caught one of two targets in Sunday's 20-16 loss to the Raiders.
Analysis: Doss played 35 offensive snaps -- his highest workload since Week 5 -- since Hunter Renfrow (ribs) was out of the lineup. Doss -- an undrafted rookie -- has produced just 11 receptions for 133 yards over eight games this season, and he figures to lose reps in Week 16 against the Chargers with Renfrow expected to return.
Doss caught three passes on as many targets for 26 yards in Sunday's 42-21 loss to the Titans.
Analysis: Doss tied his season high with three receptions in Week 14, but quarterback Derek Carr continues to favor his tight ends and running backs in the aerial attack. Doss' snap count could take a hit in Week 15 against the Jaguars if fellow receiver Hunter Renfrow (ribs) is able to return.
Doss (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Bengals.
Analysis: Doss is a healthy scratch for the fourth straight game, as the Raiders will roll out five wide receivers. The 23-year-old wideout hauled in six of eight targets for 79yards in five outings this year.
Doss is expected to see regular snaps in three-receiver sets alongside Hunter Renfrow and Trevor Davis in Sunday's game against the Packers, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: With coach Jon Gruden relaying Wednesday that Tyrell Williams (foot) is dealing with plantar fasciitis, the Raiders are likely to remain without their top wideout coming off a Week 6 bye. Williams' expected absence leaves the door open for Doss -- who played 55 percent of the offensive snaps in the Week 5 win over Chicago -- to continue seeing ample work, though Tafur notes that newcomer Zay Jones and the recently re-signed Marcell Ateman should also see time at receiver. None of the Oakland depth receivers represent high-percentage fantasy options, as tight end Darren Waller and running back Josh Jacobs are locked in as the Raiders' clear top two skill-position players and should see the largest shares of the overall offensive touches.
Doss is a candidate for extra targets in Sunday's Week 5 tilt against the Bears in London with fellow wideouts Tyrell Williams (foot), J.J. Nelson (knee) and Dwayne Harris (ankle) all declared inactive for the contest.
Analysis: The rookie from UC Davis has seen just one target on the season, but he's in line for a bigger role across the pond Sunday as a result of the multiple absences at wideout. Doss is likely to work as a No. 3 option behind Hunter Renfrow and Trevor Davis versus a formidable Bears defense.
Doss is active, and will play in Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Analysis: Doss was a healthy scratch for Monday's game against the Broncos, but as evidenced by this news, will make his NFL debut Sunday. It's unclear what sort of role the Oakland-born product will have in the offense, but behind Tyrell Williams, the receiving core is quite unproven.
Doss (coach's decision) won't play in Monday's home contest against the Broncos.
Analysis: Doss didn't have an injury heading into the game, so he will be a healthy scratch for his first regular season NFL game. The born and raised Oakland product will hope to get the call for Week 2, but in the meantime, Ryan Grant and Dwayne Harris will occupy the depth roles for Monday's showdown.
Doss has been signed by the Raiders, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Analysis: Doss actually rejected Oakland's initial offer to stay with Jacksonville's practice squad, but the Raiders upped their offer, determined to add to a receiving corps depleted by Antonio Brown's stunning departure.
Doss went unclaimed on waivers and signed with the Jaguars' practice squad Sunday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Analysis: Garafolo also notes that Doss had the choice between Jacksonville's and Oakland's practice squads. The undrafted rookie was originally waived by the Raiders on Saturday. In the preseason, Doss reeled in 17 of 26 targets for 162 yards and one touchdown over four games.
Doss is being waived by the Raiders on Saturday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Analysis: Doss had a solid preseason, hauling in 17 of 26 targets for 162 yards and a touchdown over four games. The undrafted rookie could find himself on a wideout-deprived NFL roster later this season, and at the very least has put himself in contention for a spot on Oakland's practice squad, assuming he clears waivers.
Doss had six catches (12 targets) for 63 yards in Thursday's preseason finale against the Seahawks.
Analysis: Doss is currently fighting for one of the Raiders' final spots on the 53-man roster after a strong showing this preseason. The undrafted rookie had an up-and-down final showcase, only hauling in half of his intended targets (although not all incompletions were his fault). Doss has size (6-foot-3) and athleticism at the wideout position, but he is unlikely to see much action early in the season, assuming he is able to squeeze his way onto the active roster this weekend.
Doss registered two receptions for nine yards, including a three-yard touchdown catch during Saturday's 14-3 win against the Rams.
Analysis: The undrafted free agent out of UC Davis made an impact in his very first NFL appearance, securing a Nathan Peterman touchdown pass that helped provide Oakland with a two-possesion lead early in the third quarter. With J.J. Nelson, Marcell Ateman and Ryan Grant pushing for backup jobs in the Raiders receiving corps, Doss is likely on the outside looking in when it comes to locking down a Week 1 roster spot. But continued scoring production only aids his ability to make a Cinderella run to a backup role, if not at least help him make enough of an impression to secure a job on the practice squad.
