Martavis Bryant having trouble with playbook Raiders WR struggling to learn new offense By: Mike Krueger | Aug 8 2018, 11:45 am
Former Raiders wide receiver James Jones says current Raiders wide receiver Martavis Bryant is having a rough training camp.
Jones said on NFL Network that he talked to Raiders offensive coordinator Greg Olson, and Olson told him Bryant hasn’t learned the playbook. "They’ve only got him lining up in one spot to try to slow it down and help him out," Jones said. "They need him to pick it up." (Pro Football Talk)
FFToday's Take:Sounds like the coaching staff in Oakland is trying to light a fire under Bryant and get him motivated to be the extraordinary talent that he is. The Raiders may go through some growing pains as they players learn Gruden's new offense. It's best that fantasy owners keep their expectations in check for Derek Carr and company.
