 Raiders scared offense holding everyone back but this may be the week Carr finally lets it go
Andrew Seifter
FantasyPros
 Father time looks to be catching up to Nelson, who has now gone 19 straight games without putting up 80 receiving yards. It would be unwise to expect that streak to come to an end this week.
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
Evans, who recorded an ugly 52.6 % catch rate last season, has secured 17 of Ryan Fitzpatrick's 19 targets for 230 yards and two scores. Everyone should confidently start him regardless, but the wideout would especially enter a golden opportunity if Pittsburgh's Joe Haden (hamstring) doesn't play on Monday night. 
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
Evans has looked great so far, and Joe Haden is hurting. Even if Haden can go, I like Evans in that matchup, but if he can't, watch out. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
 We're now two weeks into the Nelson experiment with the Raiders and it's not looking great, as he's totaled just 53 yards on eight targets. The matchups have been tough, but Nelson hasn't shown anything that indicates he'll break out of the funk soon. In fact, Martavis Bryant produced more in his first game with the team in Week 2. If the alignment remains the same, he'll see Bobby McCain in coverage the majority of time. He's not their top cornerback, though he's played well through two weeks this year, allowing just 5.21 yards per target in coverage. Even last year, he allowed just one touchdown in his coverage on 65 targets. This isn't a week to play Nelson.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Evans has played great football to start the season and he faces a Steelers secondary that just gave up 6 touchdown passes last week.
