Las Vegas Raiders

AFC West


The Raiders' starting QB is Derek Carr - not Marcus Mariota. As such, you shouldn't spend a draft pick on him in most leagues. Mariota is expected to earn 18% of his projected 13 fantasy points by rushing. While rushing is in his toolbox, it isn't really key to his fantasy value. With a projection of 0.7 interceptions compared to 1.0 passing touchdowns, he carries more interception risk than is entirely comforatable.

At a projected workload of 2.4 carries and 0.3 receptions per game, Peyton Barber is safe to leave on the waiver wire. He's behind both Josh Jacobs and Kenyan Drake on the running back chart in Las Vegas.

Renfrow is the third best WR on the Raiders, trailing Henry Ruggs III and Bryan Edwards. At #84 in our WR rankings, he's not really fantasy-relevant. He's projected for 525 yards and 3.0 TDs on 45.6 receptions, for 26.7% of the total for Raiders WRs. Las Vegas has the worst schedule for WRs.

Derek Carrier is projected for 89 yards and 1.1 TDs on 9.6 receptions. As our #96 TE, you can do better than drafting Carrier. Carrier is not Derek Carr's first or even second choice at tight end, with Darren Waller and Foster Moreau on the roster.

Nick Bowers is projected for only 0 yards and 0 TDs on 0 receptions. As our #103 TE, Bowers is not worth drafting. Bowers will struggle for touches with Darren Waller and Foster Moreau ahead of him.

Josh Jacobs isn't a great value at his ADP of 28, with an ECR of 42. Chris Carson (ADP 30, ECR 28) or James Robinson (ADP 32, ECR 40) might be a better value. With 16.2 projected rushes and 1.9 projected catches per games, Jacobs is one of the few running backs with a workload you can feel good about. He leads Kenyan Drake and Jalen Richard on Las Vegas's depth chart. The Raiders have the 3rd-worst running back schedule.

Derek Carr isn't a factor in 1QB leagues as our #23 QB. In 2QB leagues, he's a low-end starter. Carr is expected to earn 8% of his projected 286 fantasy points by rushing. With a projected toughdown-to-interception ratio of 2.5, he isn't not likely to melt down often.
