Los Angeles Chargers Fantasy Spin
Philip Rivers completed 21-of-28 passes for 294 scoreless, turnover-free yards in the Chargers' 26-11, Week 9 win over the Packers. Rivers averaged well over 10.0 yards per attempt, but the Chargers were all the way established on the ground as they sprung the home upset. It will still Rivers' crispest performance since Week 4 against the Dolphins. Working a deep connection with Mike Williams, he relentlessly targeted Hunter Henry in the intermediate area of the field. Rivers has a juicy short-week Thursday matchup with the Raiders, but with just 12 scores through nine starts, he won't be the most thrilling QB1 streamer. It could be necessary in a week with six quarterbacks on bye, however.
Oakland Raiders Fantasy Spin
Josh Jacobs rushed 28 times for 120 yards and two touchdowns in the Raiders' Week 9 win over the Lions. It was a wild victory for the Raiders, who had to hold off the Lions at the goal-line with eight seconds remaining. Jacobs was a primary reason why Oakland was able to get back to .500 on the season. The rookie was able to consistently pick up moderate gains on the ground while finishing off two drives with two- and three-yard touchdowns. The only blemishes were his two drops on his only two targets. Jacobs, however, is already up to 740 rushing yards and seven touchdowns, operating as a fantasy RB1/2 with upside in good matchups. The Raiders have the Chargers on Thursday Night Football next.
