Just over a half season into 2017 we check in with the early top contributors to the Raiders. But before I do, let me point out that this is not a projection of how the second half of the season will go. It is a look back at how these players and coaches performed over the first half. All of these players can either stay on this plane, fall from it, or redeem themselves over the final seven games this season. And keep in mind, it isn’t how you start, but how you finish that matters most.
