Can Derek Carr and the Las Vegas Raiders upset Russell Wilson and the Denver Broncos?

The Las Vegas Raiders take on the Denver Broncos in an AFC West rivalry. Both teams have seen their seasons go south in a heartbeat. Which team can respond and potentially save their season?

Today we look at the best DFS plays from this intriguing match-up.

Best quarterback picks

Cash Games: Russell Wilson, QB, Denver Broncos (DraftKings $5.8K, FanDuel $6.9K)

Russell Wilson has been terrible in 2022. Wilson's best game of the 2022 season came against the Las Vegas Raiders. Could he perform an encore?

Tournaments: Derek Carr, QB, Las Vegas Raiders (Draftkings $5.6K, FanDuel $7K)

How do you trust Derek Carr against the vaunted Broncos secondary? That's the same question everyone is asking, which means if he performs well, few will have Carr in their lineup.

Best running back picks

Cash Games: Josh Jacobs, RB, Las Vegas Raiders (DraftKings $7.5K, FanDuel $8.5K)

How would you go for any other back in this match-up? Josh Jacobs has been rock-solid for Las Vegas all season long. The way to attack the Broncos' defense is with a strong running game, and Jacobs has shown he can carry the load.

Tournament: Melvin Gordon III, RB, Denver Broncos (DraftKings $5.7K, FanDuel $5.9K)

No one wants to trust a Denver Broncos RB. We don't even know who is the most valuable Broncos back. Given the uncertainty, you can roll the dice and gain leverage against the field who are skeptical of the situation.

Wide receivers and tight ends

Cash game: Davante Adams, WR, Las Vegas Raiders (DraftKings $8.7K, FanDuel $8.5K)

Davante Adams should draw a ton of Patrick Surtain II in coverage, a one-on-one match-up to die for. The Raiders will be without Darren Waller and Hunter Renfrow. While Mack Hollins is a respectable receiver option, he is not the target magnet that either Waller or Renfrow have been in years gone by.

In conclusion, Davante Adams will be pelted all afternoon long with targets. Expect the Raiders to scheme Davante Adams in the slot more often. That way, he can avoid Patrick Surtain II. Adams feels as safe as any receiver on the DFS slate this weekend.

Tournament: Courtland Sutton, WR, Denver Broncos (DraftKings $6K, FanDuel $7K)

If not now, then when Courtland Sutton? The Broncos receiver draws a fantastic match-up against the Las Vegas Raiders. The Raiders struggle to stop any pass-catchers on defense.

Jerry Jeudy and KJ Hamler are out for this one, so Sutton should receive plenty of targets against the beatable Raiders' secondary. Russell Wilson and, by proxy, Courtland Sutton have been quite disappointing as of late. The Broncos have no excuses this week.
