MKF Prop of the Night: Rapidfire 2X
The likely game script for this one suggests a lot of running from Las Vegas against the 21st ranked run defense of the Chargers, while on the other side of the ball, Justin Herbert should be airing it out against the Raiders’ 25th ranked pass defense, even if Keenan Allen and Mike Williams are out.
What To Expect
Neither of these teams has been great at stopping the run, but they both like to run the ball too. I think we’ll see a rare fast-paced, run-heavy battle that is highly reminiscent of a Pac-12 game. There’s not a lot to love for fantasy outside of the big names, but I’m streaming Hunter Renfrow with Henry Ruggs out and defenses finally aware of Nelson Agholor’s existence.
✔ Starts: Josh Jacobs, Austin Ekeler, Justin Herbert, Hunter Renfrow
✘ Sits: Derek Carr, Nelson Agholor, Justin Jackson
