Week 11: vs Cincinnati Bengals

All QB vs CIN

FBG says: Good matchup. Built on short, low-impact passing, the Raiders air attack still doesn't frighten many opponents. But of late, it's been productive with volume, with Derek Carr throwing for 285+ yards in 3 of his last 4 games. He's clearly enjoying the team's newfound run game, which has greatly eased his pressure level. Still, Carr needs big volume to make any real fantasy noise. Through 9 games he ranks 22nd among qualifiers in air yardage, and he's only completed 4 passes of 40+ yards (seventh-fewest) on the year. When he does go downfield, most of his attention goes to Tyrell Williams, who has remained an elite deep threat upon his move to Oakland. Williams spends some time as a decoy and struggles for volume - he has yet to draw more than seven targets in a game - but is always a threat to slip past a napping cornerback. In other words, he's tailor-made for a matchup with the Bengals' overmatched secondary. Tight end Darren Waller commands heavy attention over the middle and in the flats, though rookie slot man Hunter Renfrow is working his way into the offense as well. He's out-targeted Waller 12-7 over the past 2 weeks, and the week before, he turned a short slant into a 68-yard touchdown. For his part, Waller is starting to draw the eyes of opposing defenses, but at least he's still making splash plays (3 catches of 20+ yards over the past 2 weeks). The Bengals still field one of football's weakest pass defenses, and they always make for an attractive fantasy matchup, especially when game flow allows. Lamar Jackson didn't need to test them much last week, but he did complete 15 of his 17 throws for 223 yards and 3 touchdowns. With that efficiency, Jackson added to the Bengals' woeful defensive stats - they've allowed the league's most net yards per attempt (8.3) and intercepted just 2 passes all year. If opponents had to throw more against the low-volume, 0-9 Bengals, they'd likely drive the count numbers up as well. Opposing passers find little resistance when they do push the ball down the field. Cornerbacks William Jackson and Tony McRae are typically ill-equipped to hold outside coverage, which has resulted in gobs of big downfield plays. As a team, the Bengals have allowed . But their biggest weaknesses actually lie inside, where slot man B.W. Webb is routinely picked on and beaten. Over the past 4 weeks, they've given up big lines to Cooper Kupp (220 yards and a touchdown), Dede Westbrook (103), and Mark Andrews (99 and 53, with 2 touchdowns). There are exploitable holes all over this unit, but Raiders tight end Darren Waller may have the most attractive outlook.
