2022 Las Vegas Raiders Fantasy Football Tracker

It’s time for another update to your Las Vegas Raiders Fantasy Football Tracker. At least there are some actual fantasy performances to discuss this week. The Raiders actually scored in their loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. All Raiders fantasy football stats from previous games will come from ESPN, and all points will be based on standard PPR formats.

2022 Las Vegas Raiders Fantasy Football Tracker

Derek Carr

Week 9 vs Jaguars:  259 pass yards, 2 passing touchdowns, 0 interceptions, 0 rushing yards, 18.36 fantasy points

Season point total: 115.9 (14.5 ppg)

Analysis

Carr didn’t have a bad game. The frustrating thing is that it could have been a great one. He had over 200 yards passing, and two touchdown passes in the first half. in the second half? Almost nothing. If Carr and the Raiders could put four quarters together, or even just three, “DC4” would have a lot more fantasy value.

Projection

Week 10 vs Colts (projected): 189 pass yds, 1 passing touchdown, 1 interception, 2 rushing yds, 11.85 pts

At this point, we have to stop giving Carr the benefit of the doubt. He has not played well, and the offense as a whole hasn’t been great either. Plus, they face a stout Colts defense this week. Expect Carr to still hit double digits, but his ceiling this week might be 15 points. It is time to wonder if he is even worth rostering at this point.

Josh Jacobs

Week 9 vs Jaguars: 17 carries, 67 rushing yds, 0 rushing touchdowns, 3 catches, 3 targets, 20 receiving yds, 11.7 pts

Season total: 152.5 (19.1 ppg)

Analysis

After the Raiders jumped out to a 17-point lead, one would have expected to see a heavy dose of Josh Jacobs. Unfortunately, that never materialized. It didn’t help that the Raiders only had the ball on one possession in the third quarter. By their first possession of the fourth quarter, Las Vegas had fallen behind and would spend the rest of the game playing catch-up. Still, Jacobs managed to at least reach double digits, so it wasn’t an awful day.

Projection

Week 10 vs Colts (projected): 20 carries, 87 rushing yds, 1 rushing touchdown, 3 catches, 3 targets, 16 receiving yds, 19.3 pts

The Raiders have to find a way to get Jacobs going. When the running game has been rolling, the team has looked its best. If Jacobs does get 20 carries, he will sniff around that 20-point mark.

Davante Adams

Week 9 vs Jaguars: 10 catches, 17 targets, 146 receiving yds, 2 receiving touchdowns, 36.6 pts

Season total: 155.7 (19.5 ppg)

Analysis

Like everyone else, it was a tale of two halves for Davante Adams. He had a monstrous start to the game. Unfortunately, his production kind of fizzled out in the second half. Luckily for those with Adams on their team, his first-half points had already amounted to a phenomenal week.

Projection

Week 10 vs Colts (projected): 9 catches, 13 targets, 88 receiving yds, 1 receiving touchdown, 23.8 pts

It is clear that the Raiders passing game revolves around Adams. He will continue to get plenty of targets. With that, his elite production should continue.

Hunter Renfrow

Week 9 vs Jaguars: 3 catch, 4 targets, 26 receiving yards, 5.6 points

Season total: 38.2 (6.4 ppg)

Analysis

Drop Renfrow. simple as that. He is not a significant part of the offense anymore. When nearly half of Carr’s passing attempts are going to Adams, there is not much meat left on the bone for everyone else.

Projection

Week 10 vs Colts (projected): 4 catches, 5 targets, 37 receiving yards, 7.7 pts

This is where Renfrow is now. He is a complete afterthought. With the return of Darren Waller looming, who knows if Renfrow will ever see more than five targets again?

Darren Waller

Week 9 vs Jaguars: DNP

Season total: 39.5 (7.9 ppg)

Analysis

Another week without Waller. Foster Moreau had a couple of catches for 42 yards. Unfortunately, his reception points were erased on the Raider’s final offensive play when he was credited with a fumble on a disastrous hook-and-ladder attempt.

Projection

Week 10 vs Colts (projected): 2 catches, 3 targets, 16 receiving yds, 3.6 pts

This does actually seem like the week that Waller final returns to action. Until we actually see him play, we are going to continue to project paltry numbers for Waller’s return. When he does take the field again, expect his first week back to be in a minimal role.

Daniel Carlson

Week 9 vs Jaguars: 2/2FG, 2 <39 yds, 2/2XP, 8 pts

Season Total: 80 (10 ppg)

Analysis

Carlson had a great first half. Then, the Raiders’ offense just stopped. At this point, Carlson’s chase for the fantasy kicking belt has begun to feel out of reach. Still, Carlson is a top-five fantasy kicker.

Projection

Week 10 vs Colts (projected): 3/3FG, 1<39yds, 1 40-49 yds, 1 50+ yds, 2/2XP, 14 pts

Look for the Colts defense to provide Carlson with some long field goal opportunities. With that, you can expect the Raiders kicker to capitalize on those opportunities. Carlson should get back to double digits this week.

Las Vegas Raiders Defense/Special Teams

Week 9 vs Jaguars: 0 sacks, 1 fumble recovery, 27 PA, 403 YA, -1 pts

Season Total: 19 (2.4 ppg)

Analysis

Another sack-less week for the Raiders’ defense. You could use that phrase to assess more than just the number of times this unit brought down the quarterback, but let’s not get too vulgar here. It is truly jarring to see this group’s fantasy total for the season go down in consecutive weeks.

Projection

Week 10 vs Colts (projected): 1 sack, 1 interception, 20 PA, 323 YA, 3 pts

The Indianapolis Colts are in shambles. Their offense is especially in an absurd state of disarray. Even the Raiders should be able to look at least somewhat competent defensively. They should be able to nab both their first sack and their first interception in three weeks against Sam Ehlinger.
