Little has been claimed off waivers by the Raiders, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Little was released by the Browns last Friday but didn't make it through waivers unclaimed, as Oakland will be his next destination. He has the skill set to succeed at this level but had an underwhelming 2013 in Cleveland, catching just 41 passes on 99 targets for an average of 11.3 yards. A change of scenery might do him some good, as he'll now compete with James Jones, Denarius Moore and Rod Streater for targets in Oakland. There's no reason to expect a huge turnaround, however, as the quarterback situation Little is entering will be no more stable than the one he had previously in Cleveland.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Little was a great disappointment for the Browns in 2013, as he was targeted 99 times, but managed to produce just 41 receptions and 465 yards with two scores. At 6-2, 220, Little has the physical tools to be effective in this league, but likely needs a change of scenery if he's going to be able to succeed. Even with the uncertainty surrounding the Browns receiving corp, the fact that Little was deemed expendable should be a telling sign.

Little managed just one reception of four yards with his six targets against the Bengals on Sunday.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Little was able to use the Browns' bye week to get healthy, but couldn't repeat the solid performance (seven catches for 122 yards) that he had in Week 9 against the Ravens. He's highly involved (70 targets on the year) but horribly inefficient (just 29 receptions) and doesn't produce many big plays. The odds are good that Cleveland will continue to trail - and throw often - the rest of the way, but it's not wise to trust Little to produce big stat lines regularly with his opportunities.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

The ironically named Little is 6-2, 220, but he's not particularly fast, and he's no longer the No. 1 wideout in the Cleveland offense – a role that now belongs to the more explosive Josh Gordon. That said, Little did increase his YPT to a passable 7.0 (for a possession receiver), and that was despite playing with a rookie quarterback getting on-the-job training. The problem for Little was the meager eight red-zone targets to go along with the lack of big plays. With Rob Chudzinski taking over as head coach (and Norv Turner offensive coodinator), there's a chance Little could see more opportunities from in close, but Turner's offenses usually feature a heavy dose of running near the goal line, and Little is unlikely to turn into Antonio Gates. That said, Gordon is suspended for the seasons' first two games, so Little should pick up a few extra targets early on.

2012

At 6-2, 220, the inaptly named Little is a big, physical target that saw a featured role in the Browns offense – 121 looks – but struggled a good deal as a rookie. For starters, he dropped 12 passes (tied for 2nd, despite having at least 20 fewer targets than the other drop leaders), and his 5.9 YPT ranked him dead last among all 100-target receivers. Of course, some of that had to do with poor quarterback play, and to remedy that the Browns drafted Brandon Weeden to compete with Colt McCoy – though it’s hard to see either being even an average signal caller in 2012. Little has just average speed and doesn’t project as much of a downfield threat, but his size and athletic ability should make him an appealing target in the red zone, should the Browns ever find themselves in that area of the field. Just keep in mind that blue-chip prospect running back Trent Richardson will likely be the focal point of the offense and the first option near the goal line.

2011

Little is a big, physical receiver who will get every opportunity to make an impression in Cleveland. He hasn't played a down since 2009 after being suspended for the 2010 season at North Carolina, but he has a ton of upside and could work his way into the fold with young quarterback Colt McCoy. Probably not draft worthy, but certainly has the size and skill set to make an early impact. The biggest thing standing in his way is the lack of consistent quarterback play in Cleveland.
