Oakland Raiders, D/ST
The Raiders’ defense took advantage of a favorable matchup in Week 11, as they held the Cincinnati Bengals to 10 points with two takeaways and five sacks of rookie quarterback Ryan Finley (13 fantasy points-Yahoo! scoring, as expected).
Over their last two games the Oakland defense has 10 sacks, five takeaways (four interceptions) and 30 total fantasy points. Week 12 brings another opportunity, as the New York Jets entered Week 11 ceding the most fantasy points to opposing defenses (Yahoo! scoring). That will change once stats adjust for Week 11, but the Washington Redskins are ill-equipped to stop anyone and the Jets took advantage last week.
Traveling east for a early game is always a little tricky for West Coast teams. But the Raiders are on a roll right now, and they should deliver some sort of fantasy numbers even if they give up a lot of points and yards.
