Cincinnati Bengals DFS Spin
Joe Burrow completed 28-of-40 passes for 282 yards and two interceptions in Cincinnati's 41-16 Week 9 bludgeoning from the Browns. Burrow drove the field with ease on Cincinnati's first possession but egregiously tossed the ball into Denzel Ward's hands for a 98-yard pick-six, a summary of how the rest of the game would play out. Although the team responded with one of Joe Mixon's two rushing scores on their ensuing drive, Cincinnati's offense left far too many plays on the field including a fumble and three drops between Tee Higgins and Ja'Marr Chase. Burrow was also pressured for five sacks and another turnover over the course of the game. His managers should expect a significantly better performance when the Bengals return from their Week 10 bye against the Raiders.
Las Vegas Raiders DFS Spin
Derek Carr caught 25-of-35 passes for 261 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in the Raiders' Week 10 loss to the Chiefs. Carr's numbers don't look horrible – two touchdowns, a pick, and 7.5 is an alright day – but the Raiders only managed 14 points and couldn't compete with a vintage Patrick Mahomes performance. The Las Vegas offense has struggled to push the ball downfield without Henry Ruggs, although DeSean Jackson could help with that somewhat once he's up to speed in the new system. Carr is a matchup-dependent streaming option moving forward.
