Oakland Raiders Fantasy Spin

Tyrell Williams (foot) is out for Week 7 against the Packers. Williams wasn't able to practice this week with his plantar fascia injury and is looking questionable for next week as well. The Raiders will also likely be without RT Trent Brown, who is listed as doubtful. The Raiders backup receivers aren't recommended plays on the road against an above-average defense. Trevor Davis, Hunter Renfrow, Zay Jones, and Keelan Doss will be splitting reps, while Darren Waller and Josh Jacobs see most of the usage.

Green Bay Packers Fantasy Spin

Davante Adams (toe) is officially out for Week 7 against the Raiders. Packers coach Matt LaFleur said Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Geronimo Allison have 48 hours to "see if they come around." Of the two, MVS appears to have a better chance of suiting up, but neither practiced this week. If all three are ultimately ruled out, Jake Kumerow and Allen Lazard will enter the fantasy mix. Adams remains week to week with his turf toe injury.

NFL Betting Trends

Oakland

The Raiders are winless against the spread in their last four games versus the Packers and are 1-4 against the number in their last five road games.

Green Bay

The Packers are 0-4 against the number in their last four home games when facing an opponent with a winning road record.

Prediction

Call me crazy but I like the matchup for the Raiders here. Josh Jacobs ranks eighth in rushing yards despite coming off a bye and has a 4.9 yards per carry average that is tied for fourth among running backs with at least 100 carries. The Packers, meanwhile, rank 26th against the run in Football Outsiders’ DVOA metric. Green Bay is also severely banged-up at receiver, so this could be a low-scoring, chew-up-the-clock game plan for both teams, which in my eyes favors the dog.

NFL Week 7 Prediction: Oakland Raiders +4.5
