The projections pushed both Andre Holmes and James Jones into the top-6 this week.
The Cardinals are giving up 309 yards passing per game and Derek Carr appears to be up to the task, throwing for more than 280 yards and four TDs last week against a Chargers defense that has been stout all year.
The most recent Holmes Rotoworld blurb says he led all Raiders receivers in snaps last week and his 20 targets in the last two games also leads the way. Jones probably should be downgraded a bit in light of the changing of the guard, but if Carr’s going to have a big game, both of these guys are likely to be involved.
Now that we’re done with Raiders corner, yes, that’s the Julio Jones in 11th. Baltimore isn’t a good or bad matchup for opposing receivers. Jones hasn’t had a touchdown since Week 3 and had his worst output of the season in Week 6. You’re still not going to bench him in standard leagues because you’re smarter than that.
