Alex Smith:  20/36 for 234 yards and 2 TD's.  This is about as good as game as Smith can have since the Chiefs run so much and for his habit of throwing underneath.  As classic a QB 2 as one could get.

Derek Carr:  18/35 for 174 yards and 1 TD.  Accuracy so far is a big problem for Carr but he has a quick release and a rifle for an arm.  Not to be overlooked, Carr has next to no receiving talent which is a factor in his shaky numbers.  Still he has done all right for a rookie and gives the Raiders some hope for the future.  However he has zero fantasy football value through to 2015. 

Lataavius Murray:  4 carries for 112 yards and 1 TD.  Wow that was exciting.....and than he was gone.  The second-year Murray has speed to burn and has shown a decisive cutting ability that gets him into open space quickly.  However Murray suffered a concussion one carry after his 90-yards TD run and that was that.  He will have to go through the protocols but Murray should be added in all formats.

Jamaal Charles:  19 carries for 80 yards while catching 4 balls for 42 yards and 1 TD.  Nice game from Charles who is one big play waiting to happen.  Has so far been much more productive on a per game basis than LeSean McCoy who were the two most debated number 1 picks this season.

Travis Kelce:  4 catches for 67 yards.  Kelce is almost a lock now for 4 catches a game with 50-plus yards.  The guy has a bright future and has terrific receiving ability to be the new Jason Witten.

Dwayne Bowe:  3 catches for 42 yards.  Still no receiving scores by a Kansas City wide receiver.  Wow that is ridiculous. 

James Jones:  5 catches for 47 yards and 1 TD.  Jones has gotten out of the shadow of Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson but he runs too hot and cold to be used on an every week basis.

Yeah so not much happening in this game with few worthy players with regards to fantasy football but as always keep checking back for more injury updates as we look toward Week 12.



  1. Keeper thoughts on Murray? Possible top 5 talent in the near future (assuming Oakland gets a new coach/gm in off-season)?

    1. Definite keeper talent as MJDD and McFadden will not be back next season. I like him.
