OAK WR Jordy Nelson - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 at Kansas City Chiefs

The Raiders end their season coming off an emotional win in what could have been the last NFL game played in Oakland but now walk into Arrowhead for a game the Chiefs need to win to ensure home field advantage. Combine that with an implied team total of fewer than 20 points this week, and this is an offense that carries great fantasy risk to end the regular season. Kansas City has struggled against the pass in terms of aFPA to WRs, and negative game script could be a benefit here. Jordy Nelson has posted four consecutive double-digit PPR performances. With some stars resting Week 17, Nelson creeps into WR2 consideration to end the season.

OAK WR Jordy Nelson - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 vs. Denver Broncos

Oakland hosts Denver as a home underdog with an implied team total of just 20 points. In what could be the last game the Raiders ever play in Oakland, one would expect Jon Gruden to have this team ready to play well. In fantasy though, we care more about quantifiable factors more than narratives. Denver is 15th in the league in aFPA to WRs. The secondary has weakened with injuries this late in the season, but the Raiders' receivers have not shown enough this season to have confidence starting any of them. That includes Jordy Nelson, who had just 30 yards against the Broncos earlier this season.

OAK WR Jordy Nelson - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 at Cincinnati Bengals

The Raiders head to the eastern time zone for an early kickoff in Cincinnati. Oakland is a road underdog with a middle of the road implied team total, which should lead to negative game script. However, the Bengals are top 10 in aFPA to WRs, meaning Derek Carr should continue to target his tight end and backs most often. We can't recommend any Raiders receiver at this point in the season. In fact, none crack our top 50 wideouts for Week 15.

OAK WR Jordy Nelson - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

The Raiders have an implied team total of fewer than 21 points, among the bottom ten teams in the league this week. The Steelers defense has had its struggles, but recently, that has come against offenses much better than Oakland's. Pittsburgh still ranks top 10 in aFPA to WRs. We are not comfortable starting any Oakland wideout in the fantasy playoffs, as none rank inside our top 40 PPR rankings at the position. That's what happens when a unit of seven receivers posts just two double-digit PPR performances over the past four weeks.

OAK WR Jordy Nelson - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 13 vs. Kansas City Chiefs

Kansas City is ranked in the top 10 in aFPA to WRs. A very high over/under in this game keeps the Raiders from the bottom teams in implied team total for Week 13, suggesting some potential negative game script to bolster a pedestrian Oakland passing attack. We just can't trust these Oakland receivers at all for the rest of the season. Over the past month, seven Raiders receivers have combined for just one double-digit PPR game (Brandon LaFell, 10.9, Week 11). That is pathetic passing game production. Stay away from this entire unit in Week 13.

OAK WR Jordy Nelson - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 at Arizona Cardinals

The Raiders are so bad at this point in the season that Oakland is a 5.5-point underdog to a two-win team this week. The Raiders implied team total of 17.5 points is also the lowest on the slate this week by a full two points. That's not a recipe for fantasy success. The Cardinals are sixth in the league in aFPA to WRs but only 27th against RBs, potentially foreshadowing a run-heavy attack for Oakland this week. That doesn't bode well for a receiving group where none of the wideouts have averaged five targets per game over the past two weeks. Running back Jalen Richard and tight end Jared Cook are the primary pass catchers in this horrific offense. No Oakland receiver is a fantasy consideration.

OAK WR Jordy Nelson - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 vs. Los Angeles Chargers

Let's check in on the Raiders offense as they begin the second half of their season: 19th in total offense, 28th in scoring offense and 24th in rushing offense. The Jon Gruden era is going swimmingly so far. The Raiders also have one of the lowest implied team totals this week against Los Angeles. The receivers aren't seeing nearly enough targets either to provide help to starting lineups. Jordy Nelson has just seven targets in two games since Amari Cooper was traded. He's not a viable starter.
