Raiders fantasy football: Start or Sit — Week 10 edition

Helping you with your start/sit questions!

NFL: Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Las Vegas Raiders Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Week 10 already, my goodness. For many of you, your fantasy football playoffs will be starting in the next few weeks. We gotta get as many wins as we can over these next few weeks. If you have any Raiders players and are questioning whether or not you should start them, hopefully this will help!

Darren Waller (Start)

As always, start Darren Waller. He’s one of the best tight ends in football, and arguably one of the best in regards to fantasy football. He’s Derek Carr’s No. 1 option in the passing game, so his volume will always be there. This is a no brainer. Just enjoy the fact you’re lucky enough to have him on your team!

Josh Jacobs (Start)

Josh Jacobs is another one of those guys you start on a week-to-week basis, no matter what. He hasn’t lived up to expectations so far in fantasy this season, but he has some of the best upside when it comes to running backs. We’ve seen it before, but he’s a guy who can find the endzone multiple times.

Derek Carr (Start)

Derek Carr continues to impress this season, so roll him out there this weekend. Depending on the QB’s available, there may be some other QB’s I’d rather start, but I think Carr is a really good option this week against the Broncos.

Henry Ruggs (Sit)

I learned the hard way last week that Henry Ruggs should likely not be on your fantasy roster. I dropped him this week and didn’t even think twice. Sure, he could turn out to be a stud in the years to come, but fantasy wise he’s been a bust. Please don’t start him. Only start him if you’re projected to win by 50 and you wanna take a chance of him having three long touchdowns so you can beat your opponent by 100.

Nelson Agholor (Start)

After being on the “sit” train all season with Nelson Agholor, I think you can officially start him on a week-to-week basis. Of course, this is dependent on the size of your league and your rosters, but he’s a go. I’ve been banking on Ruggs being the deep option for Carr, but it’s clearly Agholor, as he’s been reeling in touchdowns like crazy. He had another big one last week, and he has the upside to win you your week. If you don’t have any better options, I really like him as a FLEX play.

Hunter Renfrow (Sit)

If he’s your last resort, that’s fine. But try and avoid playing Hunter Renfrow.
