Las Vegas Raiders DFS Spin
Derek Carr completed 32-of-44 passes for 311 yards and two touchdowns in the Raiders' Week 4 loss to the Bills. Carr did most of his work in garbage time, although he was missing his two rookie receivers Henry Ruggs and Bryan Edwards. As always, Carr mostly checked down to his tight ends, running backs, and slot receiver Hunter Renfrow. Carr's fantasy ceiling is limited by the Raiders' conservative offensive approach, but he's playing well enough for Las Vegas to hang around against quality teams. Through four games, Carr is on pace for 4,380 yards and 32 passing touchdowns. Both of those would be career highs. The Raiders head to Arrowhead for a date with the Chiefs in Week 5. His only prayer for QB2 streamer appeal will once again be in garbage time.
Kansas City Chiefs DFS Spin
Patrick Mahomes completed 19-of-29 passes for 236 yards and two touchdowns in Kansas City's Week 4 26-10 win over the Patriots. The Patriots never stood a chance with Brian Hoyer (and later Jarrett Stidham) under center, tossing three interceptions and depending on Damien Harris (17/100) and Rex Burkhead (11/45) for any amount of offense. New England's defense held strong for 45 minutes, limiting the Chiefs to six points midway through the third quarter, but Mahomes eventually broke the dam in driving the team 85- and 75-yards for touchdowns on back-to-back second half possessions. It's a terrific start for the Chiefs, who will play two more games in the next 10 days due to a COVID breakout. Expect the offense to thrive in Week 5 against Las Vegas.
