Expectations are high, but all the change in Oakland leaves a lot of unknowns that could significantly impact the outcome of the season.
As many fans believe, the Raiders are going to be a surprise team. The defense is going to improve to average and the offense is going to explode.
As many more fans around the league believe, the Raiders are going to struggle. The team lacks depth and the new schemes don't fit the personnel.
Both could be true, depending on the result of these best- and worst-case scenarios.
