Las Vegas Raiders (2-4) @ New Orleans Saints (2-5)
Raiders – OUT – (TE) Darren Waller
Saints- OUT – (WR) Michael Thomas, (WR) Jarvis Landry, (CB) Marshon Lattimore
Both teams have struggled to start the year, but the Raiders are fresh off a get-right game where they beat up on the Texans 38-20. Josh Jacobs was the star of the day, with a hat trick of rushing TDs.
Jacobs has been an absolute monster in October, with 140+ rushing yards in EACH of the past 3 games, while also adding 6 scores. The Raiders have been deliberate about their desire to pound the rock with Jacobs, who’s averaging 27 touches per game this month.
Chris Olave continues to get the bulk of the work in the Saints offense, and his 14 targets last week was a career-high, leading to his 2nd 100-yard effort of the season. He’s a solid bet to churn out another productive receiving display.
The Saints’ roster continues to be riddled with injuries, and New Orleans simply lacks the firepower to stack up against the Raiders, who finally have their talented offensive pieces clicking.
I expect the Raiders to get out front early and turn this one into a track meet, with the Saints coming up short.
