All WR vs KC
Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Back in Week Six, K.C. defeated Oakland 26-10 - Amari Cooper was the only receiver over 30 yards on the day (13 targets for 10/129/0 receiving), while Derek Carr managed 22/34 for 225 yards passing, one TD and one interception thrown, with two sacks taken for -4 yards. Andre Holmes (two for 2/11/1) hauled in the lone TD of the day.
Entering Week 14, Carr (19/36 for 260 yards passing, two TDs and zero interceptions thrown, with zero sacks taken from Buffalo last week) and company put together a 15 point fourth-quarter rally to win 38-24 in Week 13. He found both Michael Crabtree (11 targets for 7/74/1 receiving) and Amari Cooper (four for 2/59/1) for the scores, while also involving Mychal Rivera (five for 3/57/0 receiving) heavily last week. Carr has thrown two or more TDs in each of his last three games, with seven TDs and two interceptions thrown during that time span. Oakland comes into this key divisional game hot.
Carr should look out for Eric Berry this week - Berry intercepted a two-point conversion attempt and returned it for the go-ahead score in the fourth quarter last week, and Berry also returned an interception 37 yards for a touchdown vs. Atlanta. He is the first player in NFL history to return interceptions for both a touchdown and a two-point conversion in the same game.
The Chiefs' pass defense averages 263.0 net passing yards allowed per game (22nd in the NFL) with 21 passing scores given out vs. 14 interceptions and 26 sacks generated (tied for second- and 14th-ranked in the NFL, respectively). From Week 10 to Week 13 of the 2016 season (over the last four weeks, but includes 10 teams on bye during that time span - each team has at least three games played in the last four weeks), K.C. has averaged 25.8 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (fifth-most in the NFL); and 31.7 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (second-most); with 4.2 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (fourth-least). Last week, Matt Ryan posted 22/34 for 290 net yards passing, one TD and one interception thrown, and two sacks for -7 yards taken vs. the Chiefs.
This is a good matchup for the hot Raiders, even though they are visiting the hostile confines of Arrowhead Stadium.
