The Raiders are extremely hot coming into this game. They have won three straight games and need every win they can get if they want to make the playoffs.

Oakland Raiders Analysis

Oakland RaidersJosh Jacobs is a definite sit this week against a Jets defense that ranks 1st in rushing yards allowed. They have contained top running backs this whole season and should continue to do that against the Raiders. They held Saquon Barkley to 1 rushing yard on 13 carries. Additionally, they have only allowed one 100 yard rushing performance and that was to Ezekiel Elliott in week 6. This Jets run defense is extremely strong and should be able to contain Josh Jacobs this week.

The receiving game should be much more productive than the running game for the Raiders. However, there is no clear top receiver on the Raiders, so it is difficult to pinpoint who exactly will get the majority of targets this week. Last week, Darren Waller led the team with 7 targets. Hunter Renfrow had 6 targets and Tyrell Williams had 4 targets. Against the Chargers two weeks ago, Waller, Renfrow, and Williams each had 5 targets. So, it appears that these three Raiders players get the bulk of production out of the passing game. This means that they are all good starts this week because the Jets rank 29th in fantasy points allowed to receivers and 19th in pass yards allowed.

New York Jets Analysis

New York JetsThe Jets offense has performed pretty well over the last few weeks. Though they have faced bad teams–the Dolphins, Giants, and Redskins–the offense really has been clicking. Sam Darnold averaged 24.1 fantasy points over the last two games and has a very favorable matchup against the Raiders defense this week. The Raiders defense ranks 26th in passing yards allowed and 27th in fantasy points allowed to quarterbacks. This matchup combined with the way Darnold has been playing over the last few weeks means that he should have a great game.

Another beneficiary of the Jets improving offense is Jamison Crowder. He has had some great games over the past three weeks, as he has averaged 20+ PPR fantasy points per game and has scored a touchdown every game for the past three weeks. Against the Raiders weak pass defense, Crowder should have another great game this week. He is an excellent start against the Raiders, who rank 30th in fantasy points allowed to opposing receivers.

Lastly, Le’Veon Bell is an okay start this week against the Raiders. He has not performed extremely well behind the Jets offensive line, but still manages to get 15+ carries every game and a few targets in the passing game as well. He has had decent production over the last few games, but he may struggle against the Raiders defense. Since so many players are on bye this week, fantasy players may have to start him, but is not an ideal start this week.

Daily Fantasy: Bargain Receivers

The receivers in this matchup are incredibly undervalued. Both defenses have allowed some of the most fantasy points to receivers this season, and the receivers on both teams have such low salaries. Jamison Crowder (DK: $6,200, FD: $6,500) is the top receiver on the Jets and has seen the highest amount of targets on the team over the past three weeks. Tyrell Williams (DK: $5,900, FD: $6,400) and Hunter Renfrow (DK: $4,500, FD: $5,900) are even cheaper than Crowder and should both have great games against the Jets pass defense. At the tight end position, Darren Waller (DK: $5,700, FD: $6,200) should have a great game as well, as he is one of Derek Carr’s favorite options to pass to. Lastly, Sam Darnold (DK: $5,800, FD: $7,400) has great value for this game. His salary is pretty low and he should continue his streak of 20+ point fantasy games against a Raiders defense that has allowed the 5th most fantasy points to quarterbacks.
