Hunter Renfrow

After scoring his first career touchdown in Week 8, the rookie Clemson product followed it up with another productive game, leading the Raiders in receiving by catching six of seven targets for 54 yards. None were more important than the go-ahead score in the fourth quarter.

The more attention that Darren Waller and Tyrell Williams demand, the more we could see Renfrow thrive.

Jalen Richard

Jalen Richard has been the odd man out this year in the Raiders backfield. After a breakout 2018 season in which he led the team in receptions with 68, Richard has seen his role drastically cut back with the addition of Josh Jacobs.

Yet, in the games biggest moments, it was Richard who was the go-to man. On the game winning drive, Richard touched the ball four times, twice catching passes from Carr for big gains of 31 and 23. He also toted the rock twice for 12 yards, ending up responsible for 66 of the 75 yards on the final drive.

Derek Carr

Even the Carr haters have to admit, DC was balling on Sunday. He was locked in from the start. We saw glimpses of the 2016 Carr, which the fan base has been yearning for.

Carr completed 65 percent of his passes and finished the game with a 116.2 passer rating. Over the last three games Carr is averaging 289 yards passing and two touchdowns.
