    Looking forward to it. Feels like a Josh Jacobs game.

    With a limited player pool (on FD) in what should be a shootout I might have to use Agholor at mvp in a couple, leave $2k+ on the table, or fade Ekeler for Ballage. I don’t think Williams plays (Ty Johnson great sneaky mvp) and Edwards/Jones won’t put up enough points to make up their price tag. Maybe Carlson puts up 22 FD points and is the highest scorer in a sloppy game that stalls out in RZ? Injury news will be big throughout the day

    It’s very different on DK though, where they’re basically free!

    Winner is going to leave a lot on the table

    I’m curious if you’ve ever tried out DK Brendan? Your low owned MVP plays would do you much more good over there with the 1.5 spot costing 1.5 the price since it gives you a lot more play/creativity with your roster construction vs FD where you literally just need to roster the single highest scoring guy in that spot.

    Most likely

    Per Schefty: Williams not expected to play, if Allen plays he will be limited. Ekeler expected to play.

    This downgrades Herbert as a potential captain doesn’t it?

  • monarch

    Chargers kinda quit 2.5 weeks ago. I read somewhere that Lynn told them they werent going to be in a position to make a run at the playoffs then the Patriots beat them 45-0. They have these vets that are dinged up on a short week with perhaps the motivation to knock the Raiders out of the playoffs but not a lot else. And they just are no longer physical.

  • truegrinder

    I was thinking that too. I was hoping ekeler was out so I could play Ballage. Might have to play ekeler as captain? Herbert throws to the RB’s all the time doesnt he?

    Herbert loves throwing to Ekeler, and he will be the work horse since Allen and Williams are unavailable/limited. Ekeler is my favorite captain other than Jacobs because he is game script independent. They run him into the ground when he is healthy.

    I respect that. Any love for Ballage? Whos your favorite option at TE/WR for chargers now?

  • Eyehatetodd

    After seeing what RBs have done to the Raiders these past few weeks, there’s no way you don’t play Ekeler and Ballage. I’ll have plenty of both. I was high on Carr/Waller too as it seems possible Carr could have another 20-30pt game playing catch up like the last 2 weeks. But without Williams and potentially Allen for LAC, not sure how I feel about it now

  • Brendan239

    On a side note, I love Renfrow tonight. Watch Guyton be the LA WR to own at 1/3 ownership of Johnson. I’m leaving $4k on the table in a couple of FD LUs. Raiders 0-2 w Ruggs out, 4 defensive starters out for the Raiders. I might go 4-1 Chargers heavy w just Jacobs or Waller in a couple.

  • monarch

    Will have some exposure to third and renfrow but he will be overowned IMO. Raiders missing Ferrell, Abrams and Arnette is nowhere near as significant as missing Paul Guenther

  • MattyK1981

    It feels like this whole SD will be decided by what happens with the 2-3 targets that Jaylon Guyton gets

  • Brendan239

    I think Allen’s limited too now. I’m fading him but I like Henry more and Jacob’s more. Looks like a 30 – 17 type of game with the Chargers so limited. Ekeler makes me nervous now too, does he even get much run if it’s a 14 point Raiders lead at half? He’s one bad cut from coming out of the game as well and I’ll never forget when I was heavy Ekeler a couple (maybe 3?) years ago when he got hurt a couple of plays into the game and was done for the year. Jacob’s, Waller, Renfrow, Carlson are the Raiders I like in order. Throw in the right Charger and you have a winning FD LU – ha!

    Can we go Jacob’s/ Booker in a Raiders blowout?

    These injuries suck. I was excited to play but it’s more of a guessing game and get lucky. Cut my entrees in half.

    Don’t be afraid of the injuries they will make it harder for your opponents as well! I think there is still an edge to be had tonight and it starts with Ekeler at CPT in my opinion!

    I love Renfrow tonight as well! I think he might go a little overlooked and he makes sense as a Raiders’ bring back to a Chargers stack as he could catch a deep target!

    But Ekeler is one of those GUYS. First drive, bad cut, to the sideline, meaningless game. I’m fading Allen 100% even if he plays but I’m 70% Ekeler right now but I feel like it’s a huge risk in only 8 LUs. That train of thought does force me to put Johnson as mvp in one, which could work out well if he gets 2 TDs. He’ll be 20% owned but only 5% at mvp.

    Really good write up ! Only thing I would point out is Mike Williams is not expected to play per Adam Schefter. So I think Tryon Johnson is firmly in play !
