Week 14: vs Tennessee Titans

All WR vs TEN

FBG says: Neutral matchup. Derek Carr has thrown at least one interception in three straight games and has only three passing touchdowns in his last four outings. He had been playing decent football earlier in the season, but Carr is certainly beginning to falter when it matters most for this offense competing for a playoff spot. Tight end Darren Waller had a bounceback game last week as he led the team in targets (9) while hauling in seven of those for 100 yards--his third 100-yard game of the season. Waller has been the most reliable and consistent receiving option for the Raiders, especially considering the back-to-back sub-20 yard outings from top wide receiver Tyrell Williams. Williams had quite the touchdown streak going to start the season, but he has been held out of the end zone in five straight games while clearing 50 receiving yards just once since Week 9. The Titans defense continues to get hit with injuries, as it looks as if they will be without starting cornerback Adoree Jackson this week. Coming just a few weeks after losing their other outside cornerback, Malcolm Butler, this will be a tough loss for the Titans to absorb. They signed cornerback Tramaine Brock to add depth, but he had not played particularly well for a bottom-ranked Cardinals passing defense while the Titans' other outside cornerbacks LeShaun Sims and Tye Smith have not been particularly effective. Slot man Logan Ryan has been playing well though, and safety Kevin Byard is continuing to have another Pro Bowl-caliber season--which should certainly help in coverage against Darren Waller when he is not looked after by Ryan. The Titans defensive line has found some recent consistency rushing the passer with at least three sacks in four of their last five games, but this Raiders offensive line is allowing pressure at one of the lowest rates in football while giving up the second-fewest sacks (18) this season. Even with that recent production on the defensive line, this Titans secondary looks depleted enough for the Raiders passing offense to have a decent shot at bouncing back from what has been a rough past few weeks.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 11 vs CIN (3 / 3 / 25 / 0 rec)

Jones was targeted on a quick out route down by the goal line. He wasn't quite able to get the edge and was dropped a yard short of the end zone, forcing the Raiders to settle for a field goal. Jones picked up 13 on a key 3rd-and-6 late in the fourth quarter to keep the clock running.

2019 Week 10 vs LAC (3 / 1 / 10 / 0 rec)

The Raiders played over half their snaps with two or fewer wide receivers on the field, which led to Jones seeing less time on the field (67%) of snaps.

2019 Week 9 vs DET (4 / 3 / 21 / 0 rec, 1 / 3 / 0 rush)

Jones has quickly become an almost every down player for the Raiders. No skill position player (aside from Derek Carr) was on the field more than Jones, who played 92% of the snaps. He picked up 9 yards on a short dump off after going in motion across the formation pre-snap. Jones was targeted in the end zone on a 3rd-and-goal from the three-yard line and drew a pass interference penalty.

2019 Week 8 vs HOU (2 / 2 / 27 / 0 rec)

Jones played 39% of the snaps in his Raiders debut. He caught a crossing route for 12 yards and a post route for 15 yards. He wasn't targeted in the second half.

2019 Week 3 vs CIN (3 / 2 / 33 / 0 rec)

Zay Jones had a relatively quiet game against the Bengals with only two catches. His highlight was a post down the seam that he caught in traffic on a terrific throw by Josh Allen. He could have had a big fantasy day, as he broke open deep at the end of the first half but was overthrown on a pass that would have been a walk-in touchdown. Jones faces the Patriots next week.
