Week 7: at Oakland Raiders

All WR vs OAK

FBG says: Neutral matchup. The Chiefs passing game has been a bright spot this season as they have three games that they have thrown for over 290 yards and five games in which they have thrown for 249 yards or more. This was something that the Chiefs were only able to do six times total last season, so there has been a definitive improvement compared to last season. This passing game is very dependent on the two primary targets in Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce as if you are able to take those two away the Chiefs will struggle as they did last week moving the ball. The Raiders have been vulnerable so far this season against the pass as they rank 20th in the NFL allowing 232.7 yards. The one area the Raiders have struggled against is against the tight end which could setup well for Travis Kelce in this game as while the Raiders are league average in terms of fantasy points allowed, they allowed 106 yards to Chargers tight ends last week and they have faced some pretty bad tight ends in Denver, the Jets before Austin Sefarian-Jenkins, and Baltimore thus driving those averages down. Reggie Nelson at free safety has really struggled against the pass so far this season. At cornerback, T.J. Carrie has been a bright spot on this team, while David Amerson has struggled so far this season which could be a good spot for Tyreek Hill in this game as Hill will be matched up against Amerson for about a third of this game and while Amerson will have a significant size advantage against Hill, Hill should be able to use his speed and route running to get open in this game.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 6 vs PIT (4 / 3 / 61 / 1 rec)

De'Anthony Thomas stepped up in place of the injured Chris Conley, catching three passes for 61 yards and a touchdown. Thomas scored the lone touchdown for the Chiefs on a 57 yard catch and run down the right sideline. Alex Smith was able to scramble away from a heavy Pittsburgh pass rush and found Thomas down the sideline. Thomas showed nice ability after the catch, shaking his initial defender as well as another member of the Pittsburgh secondary on his way to the end zone. Thomas is small, fast and shifty, so he fits in well with what the Chiefs want to do on offense, namely spread the defense out and get their playmakers in space.
