Week 12: at Tennessee Titans

All WR vs TEN

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Derek Carr and company did a big pratfall in Detroit last week. They looked like one of the hottest offenses going until the 13/25 for 169 yards passing, zero TDs and zero interceptions from Carr. Amari Cooper crushed many fantasy owners' hopes with a horrid four targets for 1/4/0 receiving, while Michael Crabtree was at least respectable with 11 for 6/50/0, and Seth Roberts got over 50 yards receiving with two for 2/54/0 to his credit. There wasn't much upside here last week, folks. We'll see if the Raiders can get it back together in Week 12. The Titans' pass D is ranked third in the NFL averaging 214.2 net passing yards allowed per game, with 17 passing scores given out vs. 10 interceptions (tied for 11th in the NFL) with 31 sacks also generated to date (tied for third). Over the past four weeks, they have given out an average of 23.8 fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks, though (tied for seventh-most during that time frame) with wide receivers averaging 22 fantasy points per game (17th in the NFL) - tight ends have averaged 12.1 fantasy points per week against the Titans in that time frame (seventh-most in the NFL). Last week, Jacksonville's tight end Julius Thomas handled the lone TD from Blake Bortles (21/31 for 218 net yards passing, with one TD and one interception thrown, with four sacks taken for -24 yards). This looks like a neutral matchup for the off-kilter Raiders.

Recent Game Summaries

2015 Week 10 vs MIN (2 / 1 / 34 / 1 rec)

Holmes is being used primarily as an occasional deep threat and he made a big play in that role against the Vikings. On 3rd-and-8, Holmes faced single-coverage against a Safety deep down the field and made a nice move to create some separation. Carr threw it up and trusted his big receiver to go get the ball. Holmes did just that; he leaped over the smaller Safety (Harrison Smith) and hauled in the 34-yard touchdown catch. Holmes was targeted in the end zone again with just over two minutes left, but the ball was slightly underthrown and Terence Newman was able to muscle his way into better position than Holmes and come down with the interception that basically iced the game for the Vikings.

2015 Week 8 vs NYJ (3 / 2 / 54 / 2 rec)

Holmes had a breakout game with a pair of touchdowns. On the first score, he lined up out wide near the right sideline with single coverage. The Jets blitzed and Holmes ran a simple fade route toward the corner of the end zone that was covered terribly by the defensive back, allowing Holmes to gain plenty of separation and easily haul in the 5-yard touchdown reception. Later in the first half, Holmes again lined up wide along the right sideline against single coverage. He beat his man off the line and showed nice speed to stay on top of the defender on a go route. Carr put it right on the money allowing Holmes to catch it in stride and sprint into the end zone for the 49-yard touchdown reception. Holmes did have a bad 3rd-down drop midway through the fourth quarter that forced the Raiders to punt for the first time. Holmes size and speed provides the Raiders offense with another dangerous weapon and he has been blocking well also.

2015 Week 3 vs CLE (1 / 1 / 3 / 1 rec)

Holmes caught the first touchdown of the game on a slant route from inside the 5-yard line. The Raiders faked a handoff from the shotgun, Carr pulled the ball out and hit Holmes who was wide open with at least three yards of separation. Holmes held on despite a big hit from Antoine Winfield after the catch.

2015 Week 2 vs BAL (4 / 3 / 50 / 0 rec)

Holmes caught a long slant early and played primarily out of the slot as the Raiders #3 wideout. Holmes made an incredible catch in traffic on a seam route from the slot that came up just inches short of a touchdown. He caught the ball between two defenders and held on despite getting crushed for a 21-yard gain just shy of the end zone.
