Jordy goes over 100 yards
Jordy Nelson has taken over as the top wideout on this roster since Amari Cooper was traded, and is starting to play his best football as of late. In fact, there is a real chance that Nelson is back with the team next season, as he is finally hitting his stride, and developing a nice rapport with Derek Carr.
Nelson has gone for at least 75 yards in three of his last four games, and has an opportunity to go over 100 against a very poor Chiefs secondary on Sunday. He has gone over 100 only once this season, but the Chiefs are the worst defensive backfield he has faced in quite a while.
The 33-year old Nelson is coming to the end of his career, but he has been very productive for the team, and could remain in a leadership role in 2019. This has been a very disappointing season for the Raiders organization as a whole, but Nelson is turning into a bright spot, and Sunday could be his best game since the Week 3 matchup against Miami where he caught six passes for 173 yards and a score.
