Dan Harris
FantasyPros
 Murray has averaged 15 touches per game over the last two weeks, but he's obviously taken a back seat to Jerick Mckinnon. The Ravens are tough on opposing running backs, and should get Brandon Williams back for this game. If you start Murray, you're essentially hoping for a touchdown, and that's a tough gamble to take. Consider him an RB4 without a ton of upside.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Amari Cooper has had just one solid game this season. Granted, he has had some touch matchups and did get his hands on 5 receptions last week. He is too good to not start, as he already has back-to-back 1,000 yards seasons in his young career. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
The Chiefs have already allowed seven wide receivers total at least 15.5 PPR points against them on the season and a large part of that reason is due to the play of RCB Terrance Mitchell, who will match-up with Cooper this week on roughly 50 percent of his snaps. It's been a rough season for Cooper as well, but we know that one of them is uber-talented. The Raiders designed some shorter routes and confidence boosting passes to Cooper last week, as he caught five of six targets, though they only went for 28 yards. He's is a slump so we can't get too excited, but he should be in lineups as a WR3 with massive upside in this game.
