Derek Carr, QB, Oakland Raiders @ Los Angeles Chargers
DK Price: $5,200
The Raiders @ Chargers matchup is my favorite to target this week in DFS. This division rivalry is full of shoot out appeal as neither defense offers much of a threat to each opposing offense.
Carr and the Raiders are coming off a high scoring, overtime affair against the Browns where Carr threw for 437 yards, 4 TD’s and 2 INT’s. The Raiders put up 45 points in the game and now Carr gets a Chargers defense that is allowing the 8th most fantasy points per game to QB’s.
The Chargers defense nearly gave up 300 yards to C.J. Beathard last week and gave up 3 or more passing TD’s in 2-of-4 games this season. Carr and most Raiders players seem to offer better value this week compared to the Chargers players and the game script should work in favor of a back and forth, punch drunk matchup.
