The Las Vegas Raiders put up a ton of points in terms of fantasy last weekend, and here is our outlook for Week 2 of the 2021 season.
The Las Vegas Raiders are facing a daunting task this week, as they will have to travel East on a short week and take on the Pittsburgh Steelers in Pittsburgh. The offense of the Steelers may not strike fear into man, but the defense is another story, as they boast elite talent on all three levels.
When taking on such a difficult defense, of course, the consensus is that the offense will surely sputter out, and not put up points as they would normally. This, of course, is common sense, but this is where fantasy adjustments must be made, and the Raiders have some fantasy players who could make or break your week in Week 2.
When you face a defense led by TJ Watt and Minkah Fitzpatrick, you have to take into consideration what stars on offense will suffer due to some tough matchups. Remember, the Baltimore defense was banged up last week, leading to a 33-point effort from the Raiders, but this weekend could be a different story, fantasy-wise.
Here we take a look at a few Raiders who you should start this week and a few who you should leave on your bench when filling out your lineups this weekend.
