The Las Vegas Raiders face the Kansas City Chiefs in a grudge match and we tell you whether to sit em or start em in Week 11.
The Las Vegas Raiders offense had one of its best outings of the season in the Week 5 matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs and they will look to keep that going in Week 11. That previous game featured an air raid from the Raiders where Derek Carr completed two touchdowns of more than 50 yards but the Raiders rush offense found plenty of success as well.
Neither Raiders running back rushed for over 100 yards but the team had over 140 yards on the ground and Josh Jacobs scored two touchdowns down at the goal line to put his performance over the top for fantasy purposes. The Raiders will likely look to ride that rush offense even more in the grudge match as the Silver and Black have doubled down on the old school ball control offense.
This change in philosophy has been driven primarily by the injuries on the offensive line but the Raiders have had great success with it and if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. From a fantasy perspective this has had an impact on the output of the other skill position players and in particular Derek Carr.
With this change in philosophy in mind, lets dive in to the fantasy numbers and see which of the Raiders you should sit or start in the Week 11 matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs.
