2022 Las Vegas Raiders Fantasy Football Tracker

It’s time for another update to your Las Vegas Raiders Fantasy Football Tracker. The Raiders picked up a second straight win over the Seattle Seahawks, and another great fantasy performance to boot. 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 12 vs Seahawks:  295 pass yards, 3 passing touchdowns, 2 interceptions, 10 rushing yards, 20.8 fantasy points

Season point total: 174.1 (15.9 ppg)

Analysis

Carr broke 20 points for the second week in a row, despite throwing two picks. A big reason for that was that he finally threw for three touchdowns in one game. He seems to have turned a corner and finally looks comfortable within the offense. Carr is officially worth rostering again

Projection

Week 13 vs Chargers (projected): 286 pass yds, 2 passing touchdowns, 0 interceptions, 3 rushing yards, 19.74 pts

Let’s temper expectations for Carr heading into this week’s matchup with the Los Angeles Chargers. In each of the last two weeks he has benefitted greatly from big plays due to busted coverages. That being said, he should have a solid game, but it will be closer to his usual stat line. Don’t expect 20 points, but he should be serviceable.

Josh Jacobs

Week 12 vs Seahawks: 33 carries, 229 rushing yds, 2 rushing touchdowns, 6 catches, 7 targets, 74 receiving yards, 48.3 pts

Season total: 242.4 (22 ppg)

Analysis

Josh Jacobs is having an incredible fantasy run. He’d had several awesome games already this season, but in Seattle, he just went ballistic. 48 points is just a ludicrous total. Right now, he should be the first running back or receiver to come off the board in daily fantasy leagues.

Projection

Week 13 vs Chargers (projected): 20 carries, 98 rushing yards, 1 rushing touchdown, 4 catches, 5 targets, 37 receiving yds, 23.5 pts

The Raiders leaned on Jacobs hard last week. Perhaps it was a bit too much. Jacobs got so beat up in Seattle that he didn’t practice all that much this week. That being said, he will still get 20-25 touches and his floor is 20 points.

Davante Adams

Week 12 vs Seahawks: 7 catches, 11 targets, 74 receiving yards, no receiving touchdown, 14.4 pts

Season total: 230.8 (21 ppg)

Analysis

It was bit of a quiet game for Adams. The Seahawks made it a point to not let him beat them, and he had a rare scoreless game. He still broke double-digits so his owners can’t be too upset. The positive for Adams going forward is that the Raiders punished Seattle heavily for keying on him. That should scare teams off of that strategy a bit in the future.

Projection

Week 13 vs Chargers (projected): 9 catches, 13 targets, 106 receiving yards, 1 receiving touchdown, 25.6 pts

After last week, Adams should see a little less attention. It should be enough to get him back over 100 yards and back to scoring. He should have a pretty solid game with significant volume.

Hunter Renfrow

Week 12 vs Seahawks: DNP, Injured Reserve; Mack Hollins: 4 catches, 6 targets, 63 receiving yards, 1 receiving touchdown, 16.3 pts

Season total (Renfrow): 38.2 (6.4 ppg)

Analysis

Hollins was the main benefactor of all the attention given to Adams. He had a healthy amount of targets, and he capitalized on them. It’s a good sign for Hollins that the Raiders drew up that beautiful flea-flicker play for him that led to an easy touchdown.

Projection

Week 13 vs Chargers (projected): Nothing for Renfrow, Hollins: 5 catches, 7 targets, 46 receiving yards, 1 receiving touchdown, 15.6 pts

I think Hollins is going to get a steady volume of targets as long as Renfrow and Waller are out. Hollins was only targeted once in the Raiders’ week one meeting with the Chargers. Josh McDaniels could look to take advantage of the fact that they didn’t have to worry about him much. I think that he finds the endzone for the second week in a row.

Darren Waller

Week 12 vs Seahawks: DNP, Injured Reserve; Foster Moreau: 3 catch, 7 targets, 33 receiving yds, 1 receiving touchdown 12.3 pts

Season total (Waller): 39.5 (7.9 ppg)

Analysis

As we projected, the Raiders continued to target Moreau. He had three catches for 33 yards and a score, which was just five yards shy from being spot on. That being said, it is alarming that Moreau caught less than half of his targets. At some point, one has to wonder when the Raiders will stop going to him as much.

Projection

Week 13 vs Chargers (projected): Nothing for Waller, Moreau: 2 catches, 5 targets, 28 receiving yds, 4.8 pts

Moreau is just struggling. Plain and simple. He will continue to catch teams off-guard once a game because he is not worth respecting right now. He is just like any other touchdown dependent TE2 at this point.

Daniel Carlson

Week 12 vs Seahawks: 2/3 FG, 2<39 yds, 4/4 XP, 9 pts

Season Total: 104 (9.5 ppg)

Analysis

Carlson now has missed kicks in back to back games. Regardless, it is not time to worry yet. Carlson has done more than enough to earn a long leash. Also, he is still a fantasy stud. Despite the misses, Carlson has 22 points over the last two games. He is fine.

Projection

Week 13 vs Chargers (projected): 3/3FG, 1 <39yds, 1 40-49 yds, 1 >50yds 3/3XP, 15 pts

I think the Raiders get in to tough fight this week with the Chargers. We can expect a fair amount of scoring and a lot of that scoring to be field goals. This is the week where Carlson truly gets back on track.

Las Vegas Raiders Defense/Special Teams

Week 12 vs Seahawks : 3 sacks, 1 INT, 1 FR, 34 PA, 372 YA, 5 pts

Season Total: 30 (2.7 ppg)

Analysis

Another decent game for the Raiders defense… somehow. Usually, teams that give up 34 points are hovering around zero fantasy points. This unit is starting to make big plays much more frequently. That is a good sign. Nevertheless, keep expectations low.

Projection

Week 13 vs Chargers (projected): 2 sacks, 1 INT, 27 PA, 353 YA, 3 pts

Keep expectations low with this group. I think they are going to have a solid game and help the Raiders get another win. Regardless, you should stay far away in fantasy. The Raiders just give up too many free yards by playing soft coverages.
