Philip Rivers @ OAK $8,200
The Los Angles Chargers’ 30.5 team total is tied for the second highest of the week, which should be no surprise. The offense is rolling and the Oakland Raiders rank near the bottom in every defensive category. Oakland has allowed the second-most points per game, sixth-most yards per game, ninth-most passing yards per game and the 10th-most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks. They are 31st in pass DVOA, according to Football Outsiders. Also, they can’t stop the run (dead last in rushing yards allowed per game).
Matt Ryan @ CLE $8,500
Matt Ryan made it look pretty easy against a Washington defense that was playing pretty good. He threw for 350 yards and tossed four touchdowns. Ryan didn’t have a game with more than two passing touchdowns last season, and he already has four with at least three. His 19 passing touchdowns are one off what he finished with last season. The Falcons come in having won three straight games while averaging 31 points per game, and the Browns have lost four straight and are allowing 33.5 points per game over that span. The Browns have surrendered the third-most yards per game and the sixth-most passing yards per game, despite ranking first in pass DVOA.
