Tennessee allowed the 3rd most points to fantasy receivers and the Raiders will have to throw the ball a ton to move the ball against this defense.The Chiefs secondary was 18th against fantasy receivers last year and they are going to struggle to keep up with the speed of Cooks, making him an upside WR1.
