While he led the team in receiving yards and targets in this one, he has only eclipsed the 60-yard mark once since Week 5, and he hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 8. Still, he remains David Carr's favorite option through the air, and as such will at least be a solid option in PPR leagues. The 30-year-old has a difficult matchup against Denver's elite secondary in Week 12, but has a slew of better opportunities in the weeks following.
Cooper wasn't targeted until the second quarter and he ended up with his fewest receptions since Week 5. Still, he salvaged his day by finding the end zone after the game was out of reach. While he has the talent to explode at any time, it will be difficult to rely on the fourth-year pro against Denver in Week 12.
After only topping the 50-yard plateau once through the season's first five weeks, Lynch has 57 or more yards in three of his last four, the one exception being when he was ejected in Week 7. While he saw over half the carries in this contest and continues to be the Raiders' lead ball carrier, he still hasn't rushed more than 14 times in a game since Week 1. Given his relatively low ceiling at this point in his career, it will be tough to trust Lynch when the Raiders take on the Broncos in Week 12.
Given what was ostensibly a good matchup for the Raiders' passing attack, Carr failed to extend his three-game streak of over 300 passing yards. He did, however, throw an interception in his third straight game. It has been an inconsistent season for the fourth-year veteran, and he has a very tough test ahead versus Denver at home in Week 12.
With Chris Hogan missing a second straight week, Amendola stepped up and was one yard shy of equaling his output from the past three games combined. The nine targets were the most he's seen on the season and good enough for a share of the team lead on the day with Brandin Cooks. If Hogan is forced to miss another game, the Texas Tech product could be in line for similar work against Miami in Week 12.
The vast majority of the yards came on two plays of 52 and 64 yards, the latter going for a touchdown as Cooks used his speed to blow by a lapsing Raiders secondary. It was the second time in two weeks that he tied his season-high reception total of six. The Oregon product will attempt to continue his momentum against the Dolphins in Week 12.
It was his fifth consecutive game with 10 or more carries and his four targets were a season high. The 27-year-old seems to have locked down a role as the Patriots' primary running back, but even so, the Patriots are known for involving all of their weapons and changing up their focal point seemingly every week, making it hard to trust him for consistent production. However, Lewis has a slew of advantageous matchups ahead, starting with Miami at home in Week 12.
Despite the Raiders being a good matchup against tight ends, Gronkowski was not a major part of the game plan and simply wasn't targeted after the Patriots got up 24-0 early in the third quarter. The Patriots' other tight ends, Dwayne Allen and Martellus Bennett, totaled five targets in the contest, with three of them coming in the second half. Gronk will look to get back to his dominant ways in Week 12 against Miami.
Anderson played fine in the game, but the Senators couldn't get a single puck past Henrik Lundqvist on any of their 20 shots. This marks the second straight game where Anderson has played well but the team hasn't been able to get him the victory. Anderson's play appears to be trending in the right direction, but his .899 save percentage is reflective of his inconsistent play all season. The Senators usually score enough to make Anderson a decent fantasy netminder, so don't get put off by back-to-back losses. The 36-year-old might not post great rate stats, but his starting gig and 7-5-3 record make him valuable in most fantasy settings.
Hayes is hitting his stride as the team's second-line center, managing three points in his last four games. The 25-year-old only has nine points in 21 games, but he's got five goals, including two game-winners. While a slow start may be behind him, Hayes isn't playing on the power play and has gone through some long droughts this season. He can find twine every now and then, but now what you're getting.
