Add Foster Moreau: Darren Waller landed on injured reserve earlier in the week, so he will miss at least three more games.

  • Moreau took over as the top tight end, just as he’s done whenever Waller has missed time.
  • The Raiders' starting tight end plays more snaps than most starting tight ends.
  • He caught three passes for 43 yards and a touchdown in Week 10.
  • The Raiders are 2-7, and their schedule is only getting more difficult. There is a chance Las Vegas might not want to risk bringing Waller back with little to no chance of making the playoffs.

The Raiders without Hunter Renfrow: Renfrow joined Waller on injured reserve as he’s dealing with injuries to his ribs and hamstring. 

  • Keelan Cole took over as the slot receiver, playing every snap Renfrow would have in three-receiver sets.
  • He was targeted twice and didn’t catch a pass.
  • Renfrow was struggling for fantasy relevancy in this offense. It is even less likely Cole will be able to contribute.
  • While this obviously hurts the team, it will generally help the fantasy value for other Raiders, as there will be more targets for their better players.

The return of Ashton Dulin: Dulin spent over a month on injured reserve after playing well at the start of the season.

  • He took snaps from both Parris Campbell and Alec Pierce in 11 personnel. 
  • Both Campbell and Pierce have been waiver wire targets after big performances earlier this season, but Dulin’s return will make it more difficult for them to bring consistent value.
  • Their playing time has declined since offensive coordinator Marcus Baugh's firing at the beginning of November, but it’s even more likely it decreases even further with Dulin back.

The return of Jonathan Taylor: This was the first game of the season with Taylor healthy in the backfield and Nyheim Hines off the team.

  • This combination meant Taylor almost never left the field.
  • Deon Jackson was also inactive, which could have also contributed to Taylor’s increased playing time.
  • This also could have been Jeff Saturday’s decision to use Taylor even more.
  • The Colts have one of the easiest schedules for running backs during the fantasy playoffs. Those who drafted Taylor first overall might be happy they did as long as they can get into their fantasy playoffs.


Table Notes

Snaps include plays called back due to penalties, including offensive holding or defensive pass interference. The other three stats have these plays removed.

Targets may differ from official NFL sources. The most likely discrepancy would be from a clear thrown-away pass, where the NFL may give the target to the nearest receiver, while this data will not.

Carries are only on designed plays. Quarterback scrambles won’t count for the total number of carries in the game.
