Week 12: at New York Jets

All TE vs NYJ

FBG says: Neutral matchup. Derek Carr continues to look perfectly competent as Jon Gruden's quarterback, completing a career-best 72% of his throws and sitting fourth league-wide in net yards per attempt (factoring in sacks). He has yet to reach 300 yards in a game, but has topped 285 in 4 of his last 5 outings. Still, this passing attack is at its core a safe and sanitized one, and it lacks a truly high-impact element. Carr sends significantly more looks to his backs, tight ends, and slot receivers than to downfield specialist Tyrell Williams, making his top wideout a boom-or-bust fantasy option. Williams hasn't drawn more than four targets in a game since Week 8, and he's fallen below 50 yards twice over that span. The most reliable parts of this attack are found inside, where Darren Waller and slot man Hunter Renfrow have commanded 38% of team targets on the year. Neither are real downfield threats, but they're not needed to be. This will remain an attack centered around dinking and dunking, with the hope being that volume (and perhaps a touchdown) can raise the receivers' fantasy floors. The Jets continue to make strides in pass defense; their youth movement in the secondary is beginning to pay off. Their young safety duo, for example, may already be the league's best, with Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye both excelling. Still, there remain holes throughout this unit, particularly at cornerback. As a result, opponents still draw plenty of big-play opportunity down the field, and receivers are finding the end zone regularly. Each of their last four opponents has scored multiple touchdowns through the air, and it hasn't exactly been a tough stretch of quarterbacks that's done it (Gardner Minshew, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Daniel Jones, Dwayne Haskins). Brian Poole has been a lockdown presence in the slot, but the outside cornerbacks have been subpar at best. The team would love to get back some of its injured pieces for Sunday, but starters Darryl Roberts and Nate Hairston don't move the needle much. It's safe to expect the Raiders to test this group on the boundaries a fair bit, and when they do, top wideout Tyrell Williams should face easier matchups than usual.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 11 vs CIN (2 / 2 / 8 / 1 rec)

You will rarely see a guy as wide open as Foster Moreau was on his 2-yard touchdown catch. He lined up to the right and slid through traffic away from the motion of the play. No Bengal defender was within 20 yards of him.

2019 Week 9 vs DET (2 / 1 / 3 / 1 rec)

Moreau was only targeted twice but both were in the red zone. Carr targeted him just shy of the end zone on a wheel route but it was very well covered. Later, the two were able to hook up for a 3-yard touchdown. The Lions dropped 8 guys into coverage but Moreau was still able to find a hole in the zone for the easy completion.

2019 Week 8 vs HOU (2 / 1 / 10 / 0 rec)

Moreau caught it short over the middle and then turned upfield and pushed a pair of defenders back for a 10-yard gain.

2019 Week 7 vs GB (3 / 2 / 24 / 1 rec)

Moreau had another strong game. He played 48% of the snaps, which was more than all but one of the wide receivers. He caught a 10-yard touchdown on a pick play from an interesting formation. The Raiders came out with three tight ends but had all three of them split out as wide receivers on the same side of the field. Moreau was next to Waller in the slot. Waller ran a rub route to free up Moreau, who caught the ball just shy of the end zone and made an athletic dive to extend the ball across the goal line.

2019 Week 5 vs CHI (5 / 4 / 46 / 0 rec)

Moreau was one of the Raiders' better offensive players against the Bears. He played a career-high 62% of the snaps and led the team in receptions and receiving yards. He made a key 5-yard catch on 3rd-and-3 in the red zone to keep the chains moving and set up a touchdown. The Raiders lined up with three tight ends and Moreau was able to catch the ball on a short curl route and fall forward for the first down. Three of his four receptions came in the fourth quarter. The Raiders lined up in a goal line formation on 3rd-and-1 near midfield and Moreau was able to slip back across the middle and take advantage of a busted coverage for a 23-yard catch and run. He made what may have been the play of the game for Oakland to set up the game-winning touchdown. Despite a linebacker running right with him, he made a leaping grab, showing great extension to catch the ball with his hands for a 16-yard gain at the Bears 2-yard line.
