Fantasy Football Week 16 Oakland Raider Sleeper of the Week

The Raiders are not an excellent source for fantasy sleepers these days. Denarius Moore has potential, but just like last week, he may not get a chance to get in the flow as he recovers from his injury.

The interesting thing in this matchup is who are the Chiefs going to stick Brandon Flowers on? You'd imagine he will spend most of his day on DHB. That means DHB is not a good sleeper choice. Football Outsiders has the Chiefs second stopping opposing No. 1's, and that is largely due to Flowers.

This very well could lead to more looks for Moore. So, if you are gambling man, roll the dice. Another roll of the dice is Kevin Boss. If you are hurting for a TE, Boss could do the trick. He has 90 yards receiving and a touchdown over his last two games as he is finally finding some sort of role in the passing attack.

The Chiefs also are struggling against TEs. FO ranks them 23rd. I got a creeping feeling that this will Boss' most productive game as a Raider.
