From the upgrade/downgrade report (Tue Sep 10): Williams stepped up in the absence of Antonio Brown and looked capable of being the #1 receiver for the Raiders in a very good performance to key a win over the Broncos. He'll have a WR3/Flex outlook with upside against the Chiefs in Week 2.

General News (Fri Sep 13): partially participated in Friday's practice (due to illness) but is not on the team's injury report. He will be available to play this week.

Week 2: vs Kansas City Chiefs

All WR vs KC

FBG says: Neutral matchup. Derek Carr and Oakland's passing attack opened the 2019 season with a shockingly impressive performance during the team's 24-16 victory over the Denver Broncos. Carr finished the night completing 22 of his 26 passing attempts for 259 yards and 1 score. It is also worth noting that Carr pushed the ball downfield far more in week one than he typically did throughout the 2018 season. Offseason acquisition Tyrell Williams proved to be Carr's favorite target through the air, targeting Williams seven times throughout the game, including the highest-leverage situations. Williams tallied 6 receptions for 105 yards and a touchdown in his debut in the silver and black. At tight end, Darren Waller flashed some of the potential that many analysts hoped he would display in an offense devoid of playmakers. Waller caught 7 of his 8 targets for 70 yards in his first start as a member of the Oakland Raiders. Aside from Williams and Waller, however, there is not much to like in this Oakland passing game. The Raiders' offensive line was highly impressive in the season opener. Denver was unable to apply pressure to Derek Carr all night, registering zero hits on the quarterback. Oakland's passing game impressed in the season opener, giving reason to adjust expectations for this unit for the better. Nick Foles and Garner Minshew combined for 350 passing yards, 3 touchdowns, and 1 interception in week one, but these numbers do not tell the whole story of the matchup. Following an injury to Nick Foles, Minshew ran a dink-and-dunk offense that left receivers to do much of the work after the catch. Minshew's average 5.5 air-yards-per-attempt ranked 2nd-lowest in the entire NFL in week one. While Kansas City's pass rush failed to produce in week one, this unit has the pedigree of a defensive line primed to make an impact throughout the season. Frank Clark was acquired from Seattle following 3 straight 10+ sack seasons. While he only registered one pressure on the quarterback last week, Clark can be counted on to right the ship and get after the quarterback throughout the season. On the interior, Chris Jones is arguably the second-best interior lineman in the NFL. In 2018, Jones recorded 15.5 sacks, good enough for 3rd in the NFL. In week one, Jones pressured Jacksonville quarterbacks three times but failed to convert any into sacks, which won't continue for long. In the secondary, the Chiefs added Tyrann Mathieu over the offseason to strengthen their weak-point on the defense. While Mathieu did not turn in his best performance in week one, another newcomer, Breshaud Breeland, stepped up in coverage. Kansas City's week one defensive statistics are inflated due to an entire fourth-quarter of garbage time, but that could be a trend with their high powered offense. This is a strong unit, and is better than the stats that they will give up, but they will give up a significant amount of garbage time yards this season.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 1 vs DEN (7 / 6 / 105 / 1 rec)

Williams almost never left the field, playing 52-of-55 snaps on the day. He looked good in his first chance as a true No. 1 receiver. Williams showed great extension to reach out and pluck the ball in front of him for an 8-yard touchdown on a crossing route on the game's opening drive. He was wide open for an easy 15-yard catch over the middle off of play action. Williams beat single coverage on a 3rd-and-1 and got behind the defense for a 43-yard catch. Carr took another deep shot to Williams on a deep post but it was well-covered by the Broncos. Williams grabbed a 24-yard completion on a skinny post near the end zone, leaping up and snatching the ball above Chris Harris. Williams made one of the key plays of the game late, picking up 10 yards on a 3rd-and-8 screen pass at the two minute warning with the Raiders nursing a one-score lead. His Raiders debut couldn't have gone much better and Williams looks like a potential impact fantasy option moving forward.
