Week 7: at Green Bay Packers
FBG says: Tough matchup. The Raiders passing offense continues to be one in which is a low-upside offense as they are averaging just 6.9 yards per attempt which is right in line with Derek Carr's career average. This is a unit that lacks playmakers at the wide receiver especially since Tyrell Williams missed the game against the Bears and is expected to continue to miss time as he has plantar fasciitis which will take longer than a bye week for him to recover. John Gruden alluded to Williams that he was likely to miss this week as well which will leave the Raiders incredibly thin at the wide receiver position. The Raiders also released J.J. Nelson this week which means that they will be running with the same three wide receivers that they had last week in Trevor Davis, Hunter Renfrow and Keelan Doss which there is not a lot to get excited about. At the tight end position, Darren Waller continues to be a bright spot for the Raiders. Waller has led the team in targets in every game this season as the possession receiver has become a security blanket for Derek Carr and should continue to be heavily relied upon in the passing attack. The Packers secondary started slowly against the Lions as they allowed 229 yards passing in the first half to Matthew Stafford but clamped down in the second half holding the Lions to just 36 yards passing in the second half which ultimately led the Packers back to victory. On the year, this secondary has been one of the most improved units in the NFL as outside of a garbage time second-half from Dak Prescott, the Packers have been nearly flawless holding opponents to just 219 yards per game. Even with the 463-yard two-touchdown performance from Prescott, the Packers have allowed the seventh-fewest fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks and an even more impressive third-fewest fantasy points to opposing tight ends which could be a significant factor to a Raiders team that throws to the tight end position frequently. Jaire Alexander has turned into one of the leagues better cornerbacks and with Kevin King, Adrian Amos, and veteran Tramon Williams, this makes up one of the more consistent units in the NFL. There is not a clear weakness to exploit and this secondary will have a significant advantage over Oakland this week.

Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 5 vs CHI (4 / 4 / 42 / 0 rec)
Davis led the Raiders wide receivers in snaps and receiving yards. He showed nice hands to make a 21-yard grab in traffic. Davis almost cost the Raiders the game with a fumble at the goal line. On 1st-and-goal from the three, the Raiders threw a quick screen to Davis. He looked like he was going to score but had the ball punched out just shy of the goal line by a defender. He did have two hands on the ball but needed to be stronger with it.
2019 Week 4 vs IND (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec, 2 / 74 / 1 rush)
J.J. Nelson warmed up but couldn't go, which opened the door for Davis in a big way. He played a whopping 88% of the snaps, an especially eye-opening number considering he just arrived in Oakland less than two weeks ago after spending the first few years of his career in Green Bay. Davis took advantage of his opportunity and made a great first impression for the Raiders with a pair of impressive runs. He took an end around down the left sideline for a 60-yard score, showing off his sub-4.4 speed along the way. He later had a 14-yard run that was even more impressive. The play was again designed for Davis to take the ball down the left sideline on an end around. However, the Colts read the play well and had multiple guys in position to drop Davis for a loss. He reversed field and went back in the other direction, weaving his way for a 14-yard gain.
