OAK WR Seth Roberts - 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 Seth Roberts - 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 Seth Roberts - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 at Baltimore Ravens

The Raiders travel across the country as a double-digit underdog, tied for the lowest implied team total of Week 12 at just 16 points. Baltimore also ranks top five in aFPA to WRs. Jordy Nelson is questionable this week, after beginning the practice week as a limited participant. The targets without him last week to Raiders receivers went: Seth Roberts 7, Marcell Ateman 5, Brandon LaFell (on IR now) 3, Dwayne Harris 0. If there's a desperation starter in this group in very deep leagues, it would be Roberts based on that target distribution, but given all the above factors, we wouldn't start any Raiders receiver in Week 12.

OAK WR Seth Roberts - 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 Seth Roberts - Week 9 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 9 at San Francisco 49ers (Thursday)

Here's how the targets played out in Oakland's first game without Amari Cooper: Jalen Richard 8, Jared Cook 5, Jordy Nelson 4, Seth Roberts 4, Brandon LaFell 4, Doug Martin 2, Keith Smith 1. Feels like Washington West, huh? Derek Carr, like Alex Smith, did not heavily target his receivers. Four targets just aren't enough for us to consider Roberts in starting lineups in Week 9.

OAK WR Seth Roberts - 2018 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside

Seth Roberts could potentially work his way into 3-WR sets if Martavis Bryant is suspended.

Fantasy Downside

Roberts just doesn't appear to have a path to consistent targets this season, with Amari Cooper and Jordy Nelson ahead of him and TE Jared Cook also likely to see more targets.

2018 Bottom Line

Roberts is not a draft consideration in 2018.

OAK WR Seth Roberts - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 at Philadelphia Eagles

The Raiders go cross-country for a Christmas night battle with the Eagles. With the possible return of Amari Cooper, no other WRs outside of Cooper and Michael Crabtree are under fantasy consideration.
