Shark Bites

Raiders HC Josh McDaniels said Monday that WR Jakobi Meyers is "headed in the right direction" as he moves through the league concussion protocol. That indicates optimism the WR will be ready for Week 3. We'll continue to track Meyers' progress this week. He's worth grabbing where available ahead of his return, though, after a big Week 1 receiving line.

The Raiders’ offense hung tight against the Chiefs in Week 12. The QB Aiden O’Connell-led unit paced Kansas City in total offensive yards (358 and 360, respectively) and did considerable damage through the air. WR Jakobi Meyers recorded a 6-79-1 receiving line with teammate Davante Adams not too far behind (5 catches, 73 yards). Since firing former HC Josh McDaniels ahead of Week 9, Adams has taken off with an average of 11 targets, 80.6 yards, and 16 PPR points per game in that span. Both guys have stellar chances to keep their success rolling as the Raiders’ remaining schedule ranks 11th-easiest for WRs per our adjusted fantasy points allowed. Fantasy managers will have to wait until after Las Vegas’ Week 13 bye to get Meyers and Adams into lineups. Still, their next two opponents (Vikings, Chargers) are top-10 fantasy matchups for wideouts.

Raiders WR Jakobi Meyers hauled 7 of 10 targets for a team-high 75 yards with a TD on Monday night vs. the Packers. Fantasy managers hoping for a big “revenge game” from WR Davante Adams went to sleep disappointed. The former All-Pro had been targeted 33 times over the last two games but only saw 1 target in the first half of Week 5. He ended the game with 4 catches for 45 yards. Definitely a bit of a bummer. Next week, Adams will have a chance to bounce back against the Patriots.

Raiders WR Jakobi Meyers tallied just 2 grabs for 33 yards in Week 4. He had a 50-yard downfield catch negated by an offensive pass interference penality, but the real issue here was shaky play from rookie QB Aidan O’Connell. On the bright side: Jimmy Garoppolo (concussion) should return for Week 5 vs. Green Bay. Meyers notched 29.1 and 15.5 PPR points in two full games with Garoppolo.

Raiders WR Jakobi Meyers (concussion) practiced all week and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll be back for Sunday night’s game vs. the Steelers. Meyers posted a big 9-81-2 line in the opener and is on the WR3 radar for Week 3 fantasy lineups.

Raiders WR Jakobi Meyers (concussion) was upgaded to full participation in Thursday's practice. He's on track to return for Sunday night's game vs. the Steelers.
