The Oakland Raiders got a huge win in Week 10, but it was a relatively quiet night for the passing game. Derek Carr threw for 218 yards and one touchdown, but he spread the wealth throughout the evening. Nobody was targeted more than five times, with running back Jalen Richard and wide receiver Hunter Renfrow each catching four pass, for 43 and 42 yards, respectively.
Renfrow emerged during Tyrell Williams’ injury absence, but both were quite this past week. Renfrow had his two-game touchdown streak snapped, while Williams was held out of the end zone for the second straight game after scoring in each of his first five games this season.
This week, the Raiders have a juicy matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals. The winless Bengals are all sorts of bad, and while the Bengals have given up the 13th fewest fantasy points to wide receivers, it’s more because they’ve been one of the worst against running backs.
Fantasy football analysis: Raiders WRs Hunter Renfrow, Tyrell Williams
With both through their respective hot streaks, Renfrow and Williams have limited value most weeks. Renfrow is a low-end PPR flex option, while Williams is a guy you gamble will find the end zone once again.
That being said, this weekend is one of those great opportunities for both. Neither is a must-start, but if you’ve got a tough decision, facing the Bengals is a mark in the start column. With matchups the next three games against the Bengals, Jets, and Chiefs, this is likely the last stretch where you’ll be starting either Raiders wide receiver this fantasy season.

Tyrell Williams: Flex option in deeper standard/PPR leagues
