Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum | Sunday, September 19 | 4:05 p.m. EST (FOX)
Pick: Raiders 13, Rams 10
155 pass yards, 5 rush yards, 2 INTThe Rams did not wait to get Bradford involved in the offense. Bradford attempted 55 passes in Week 1 and finished with 253 passing yards and a touchdown. However, the high number of opportunities also resulted in three interceptions. Don't expect a repeat.
5 rec, 30 rec yards, 110 rush yards, 1 rush TDThe Raiders are not very good against the run, so Jackson should see plenty of action in Week 2 as long as his sore knee does not keep him out. Expect Jackson to top the 81 yards he put up in Week 1 and find the end zone if he plays.
4 rec, 65 yardsThough Clayton was picked up just a few weeks ago, it did not take Sam Bradford to realize who is most-talented receiver is. Clayton caught 10 passes for 119 yards in Week 1 and should be considered the top fantasy option among Rams receivers despite the short tenure.
2 rec, 20 yardsRobinson caught a touchdown pass in Week 1, but he recorded just 18 yards on three catches in the game. His value is limited this week against a good Raiders pass defense.
2 rec, 20 yardsAmendola had the best game of his career in Week 1, but he has to show some consistency before being a weekly fantasy option.
2 rec, 20 yardsOpportunities will be limited. Fells isn't worth your time.
1 PAT, 1 FGBrown did not score in double figures in any game last season, but he could have reached 10 points had he hit all three of his field goal attempts in Week 1. Brown is not a strong option this week since this game should be be a low-scoring one.
3 sacks, 2 INT, 1 FumbleThe Rams recovered three fumbles and recorded two sacks against a similarly unimpressive offense in Week 1, but they aren't a very strong defense overall.
155 pass yards, 1 pass TD, 10 rush yards, 2 INTCampbell had a rough first week against a pass defense that is not very strong, so he is a risky option against any opponent at this point. He should only be considered in two-QB leagues this week.
2 rec, 15 rec yards, 40 rush yardsWith Michael Bush out in Week 1, McFadden saw the bulk of the work in the Raiders backfield. He responded in a big way, racking up 150 total yards and reaching the end zone. Even if Bush returns this week, McFadden should see the majority of the work.
1 rec, 5 rec yards, 30 rush yardsA thumb injury knocked Bush out of the opener, but the Raiders hope he can return in Week 2. When Bush returns, he will likely serve as the backup behind Darren McFadden, who had an impressive showing in Week 1.
2 rec, 35 yardsHeyward-Bey had just one catch in the opener and will need to start producing on a more-consistent basis before being considered a useful fantasy option.
2 rec, 30 yardsMurphy caught just four passes in Week 1, but he is the top option among Raider receivers at this point due to his big-play ability.
4 rec, 45 yards, 1 TDMiller caught four passes in Week 1 but is still the best bet among Raider spass catchers. He should see more action against the Rams this week.
1 PAT, 2 FGsJanikowksi's production is limited by the Raiders offense, but he could find himself in a few scoring opportunities this week against the Rams.
5 sacks, 2 INTThe Rams offense is very green; so if the Raiders are able to contain Stephen Jackson, they could force Sam Bradford into a few mistakes. They could be a sleeper option this week, but it's a risk starting them at this point after they gave up 38 points in Week 1.
