Fantasy Matchups to Exploit: Tyreek Hill and Chiefs' Wide Receivers Against Raiders' Secondary in Week 13
The Oakland Raiders have been one of the surprise teams in the NFL this season. But just when it seemed like they were beginning to play their best football, the Raiders were absolutely torched by the New York Jets in Week 12.
Sam Darnold threw for 315 yards and two touchdowns in that game, which is certainly an encouraging sign for Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs, as they'll face the Raiders in Week 13.
The last time these two met (Week 2), Kansas City absolutely torched Oakland's secondary. Mahomes threw for 443 yards, and the Chiefs wideouts caught a combined 17 passes for 288 yards and three scores.
Tyreek Hill, who didn't play in that game, has a chance to have an absolutely massive game in Week 13 against the Raiders' weak secondary.
The Raiders are the third-worst passing defense in the NFL, per Football Outsiders' DVOA rankings, and Oakland has allowed the sixth-most points to opposing wideouts in standard-scoring leagues.
Hill is projected to play, although its always a good idea to keep and eye on his status to be safe. He's currently ranked as WR2 in our Week 13 fantasy football PPR rankings.
