Today we look at the best DFS plays from this intriguing match-up.
Best quarterback picks
Cash Games: Geno Smith, QB, Seattle Seahawks (DraftKings $6K, FanDuel $7.6K)
Geno Smith and his pass-catchers should have their way against the Las Vegas Raiders, who possess one of the worst secondaries in the NFL. Smith has as high an upside as any QB on the DFS slate.
Tournaments: Derek Carr, QB, Las Vegas Raiders (Draftkings $5.7K, FanDuel $7.3K)
Derek Carr relies on the game script. If the Raiders control the game, they are going to be running the ball with RB Josh Jacobs. Carr will be in play if they are chasing or competing in a shoot-out. Expect a potential shoot-out this weekend.
Best running back picks
Cash Games: Kenneth Walker III, RB, Seattle Seahawks (DraftKings $6.9K, FanDuel $8.4K)
Kenneth Walker III has been unbelievable since taking over as the lead back for the Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks offensive line continues to improve and imposes himself on the opposition as the game proceeds. Walker gets a delightful match-up against the Raiders this week.
Tournament: Josh Jacobs, RB, Las Vegas Raiders (DraftKings $7.7K, FanDuel $8.7K)
Keep an eye on the injury report leading up to this contest. Josh Jacobs appeared on the latest version, labeled questionable.
Wide receivers and tight ends
Cash Games: DK Metcalf, WR, Seattle Seahawks (DraftKings $6.5K, FanDuel $7.2K)
Sometimes you are intuitive about a game and how it will play out. To us, this feels like a DK Metcalf game. The athletically gifted receiver remains the primary pass-catching option for the Seahawks. Against a beatable Raiders secondary, expect Metcalf to have a ceiling performance.
Tournament: Mack Hollins, WR, Las Vegas Raiders (DraftKings $4.4K, FanDuel $5.6K)
Las Vegas Raiders will have to throw the ball well in this one if they want to keep pace with the Seahawks' prolific offense. The Raiders are still without Hunter Renfrow and Darren Waller, who are missing on account of injuries. Mack Hollins has shown us in spots throughout the 2022 season, that he can step up when he has to. Hollins is your guy if you are looking for a cheap play that can pay dividends.
