Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum | Sunday, November 07 | 4:15 p.m. EST (CBS)
Pick: Raiders 20, Chiefs 17
140 pass yards, 1 pass TD, 5 rush yards, 1 INTCassel has a 6:0 TD:INT ratio during his past four games, but he has averaged only about 175 yards per contest over that span. Cassel will face a Raiders team in Week 9 that is giving up only about 180 passing yards per game.
2 rec, 20 rec yards, 100 rush yardsCharles topped the 100-yard mark for the first time this season in Week 8, and his 95.1 Y/G average is the fifth-highest total in the league. He is a good bet to reach the century mark again this week against the Raiders' 26th-ranked run defense.
2 rec, 20 rec yards, 75 rush yards, 1 rush TDTeammate Jamaal Charles is having a big season, but Jones has been a productive fantasy player in his own right. He has a good matchup this week against a Raiders defense that is giving up over 127 rushing yards per game.
3 rec, 70 yards, 1 TDBowe was held to just 16 receiving yards last week, but he was able to find the end zone for the fourth time in five games. He is a good option this week against a Raiders defense that could be without Nnamdi Asomugha.
1 rec, 10 yardsAn ankle injury kept McCluster out of last week's game, and he was not doing much before the injury in the first place. Use a different option this week.
2 rec, 20 yardsMoeaki has been consistently average this season, recording at least 20 receiving yards in every game but never more than 58. Still, he could be a sneaky option this week against a Raiders defense that has allowed 14 touchdowns through the air.
2 PATs, 1 FGSuccop hit a game-winning field goal in Week 8 and finished with seven points. He is an average fantasy option this week.
2 sacks, 1 INTKansas City's defense will take on a Raiders offense in Week 9 that has racked up over 500 total yards each of the last two weeks. Look for a defense with a better matchup.
170 pass yards, 5 rush yards, 1 INTCampbell has averaged 257 yards and two touchdowns his past two games, but he is not guaranteed to start in Week 9. Facing the Chiefs' 23-ranked pass defense, Campbell will be a decent option in two-QB leagues if he is given the starting nod.
2 rec, 25 rec yards, 95 rush yards, 1 rush TDMcFadden has run for at least 100 yards in four of his past five games. He is averaging more rushing yards per game than any other RB in the league, so make sure he remains in your lineup on a weekly basis.
2 rec, 25 rec yards, 40 rush yards, 1 rush TDBush has found the end zone in four of his last five games, but he faces a tough Kansas City run defense in Week 9.
3 rec, 55 yardsHeyward-Bey is coming off the best game of his career, but he will have trouble getting open consistently against Chiefs corner Brandon Flowers. Heyward-Bey will probably be the Raiders' top receiver again, but do not expect a repeat of last week.
3 rec, 40 yardsFord will likely start for the Raiders again in Week 9. Oakland will take on a Kansas City team that is 23rd in the league against the pass, so he has a favorable matchup if you need him.
3 rec, 30 yardsMiller is dealing with a foot injury, and though he is expected to play in Week 9, he may not be 100 percent and is coming off his least productive game of the season. Miller has been a top fantasy TE this season, but do not expect a huge game in Week 9.
2 PATs, 2 FGsJanikowski has been the top fantasy kicker up to this point, so keep using him while he is hot.
3 sacks, 1 INTOakland's defense has been very productive in recent weeks, so even though they have trouble stopping the run and face a Chiefs team that leads the league in rushing, they are a decent option in Week 9.
