Both of these teams have had their fair share of ups and downs this season, but strong play as of late has them in the playoff conversation in their respective conferences. Both teams will view this game as a must-win contest, and the Raiders will hope their home-field advantage, and rest advantage will be the deciding factor this week.

Washington Football Team Vs. Las Vegas Raiders Player Prop Search Tool
Antonio Gibson Over 17.5 Rushing Attempts
It was a slow start to the year for the second-year running back, but Antonio Gibson has turned things in a better direction following the team’s bye week. In his last three games, Gibson is averaging 24 rushing attempts per game as Washington has emphasized establishing the run. The Raiders have allowed 125.9 rushing yards per game, the eighth-most in the NFL, so this is a matchup where Gibson will be heavily utilized yet again. Regardless of matchup, he has recently had 24 carries against the Buccaneers, and 19 carries against the Panthers, two of the best run defenses in the NFL. If you’d like to target rushing yards for Gibson, that’s an excellent spot to look at, but I’m betting on the volume here.
Hunter Renfrow Over 6.5 Receptions
I was likely going to target this spot regardless of the status of Darren Waller, but with the stud tight end ruled out this week, Hunter Renfrow will be even more integral to the offense. Renfrow has 7+ catches in four of his last five games and averaged 6.6 receptions per game over that span. With Waller’s 8.4 targets per game absent this week, Renfrow has the opportunity to see a couple more targets, as well. Washington has allowed 266.6 passing yards per game, the third-most in the NFL, and while things have improved lately, Derek Carr will likely still be able to move the ball through the air. Renfrow should see a hefty target share this week and be able to turn that into plenty of receptions.
Logan Thomas Over 3.5 Receptions
Washington was very excited to get their starting tight end back in the lineup, and it’s fair to expect him to get right back to a heavy target share this week. When Washington gave him a 3-year, $24 million extension, they expected him to be a massive part of the offense for years to come. His early-season injury derailed that level of involvement, but this profiles as an excellent matchup for him to see a significant target share. The Raiders rank just 29th in tight end defense DVOA per Football Outsiders, and with J.D. McKissic out, Thomas should pick up a couple of additional short-area targets this week.
Josh Jacobs Under 53.5 Rushing Yards
Jacobs is coming off a massive day against the Cowboys with 22 carries for 87 yards and a touchdown, but that was just the second time all season he’s surpassed this yardage mark. This week, Jacobs faces a Washington defense that ranks 7th in the league in run defense DVOA and has allowed the third-fewest rushing yards this season. In addition, Jacobs is listed as questionable for this game, and it’s unclear if he will even be able to play. Add all that together, and I have a hard time banking on him surpassing this yardage total for just the third time this season.
