Oakland Raiders Fantasy Spin

Tyrell Williams (foot) is questionable for the Raiders' Week 8 matchup against the Texans. Williams is tentatively expected to suit up for the first time since Week 4. The Raiders' undisputed No. 1 WR ripped off 6-105-1, 5-46-1, 3-20-1 and 3-36-1 lines to start the season before missing the team's Week 5 win over the Bears. Meanwhile, Keelan Doss (3-54-0 in Week 7) is the only Raiders WR to surpass even 50 receiving yards with Williams sidelined. Derek Carr hasn't fed any of his complementary WRs more than five targets in a game during two contests without Williams.

Houston Texans Fantasy Spin

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Will Fuller (hamstring) is expected to miss "several weeks." Fuller's tests reportedly showed a "significant" hamstring pull. Unlike the game-planning required to mesh Kenny Stills with DeAndre Hopkins and Fuller in three-wide sets, Houston's offense shouldn't miss a beat with Stills taking over on the outside and Keke Coutee sliding into the slot. Consider Stills the week's top waiver pickup at his position given his 4/105 receiving on 61 snaps (94%) once Fuller exited against the Colts in Week 7.
