FANTASY FOOTBALL MONDAY NIGHT WRAPUP: RAIDERS/TEXANS

Fantasy football Week 11 is now in the books as the Oakland Raiders and Houston Texans met in Mexico.  Let's check out the storylines emanating from the game.

-Texans rookie wideout Braxton Miller is becoming more and more of a factor in the team's passing game as the season has gone along, at the expense of fellow rookie Will Fuller who can't seem to kick the injuries.  He started opposite of DeAndre Hopkins and caught five passes for 25 yards and a touchdown.  The former Ohio State QB has speed to burn and is becoming at least someone to monitor for another week.

-After performing like an All-Pro the first two months of the season, Raiders wideout Michael Crabree has struggled in November, lowlighted by catching just three passes for 5 yards.  The touchdowns have dried up a bit for Crabtree as well but he remains a firm WR 2 in all leagues.

-It has been a tough go of it both for Texans RB Lamar Miller and his fantasy football owners as 8 men in the opposing box have bottled up the first round pick all season.  Still Miller showed burst Monday night as he rushed for 104 yards and a score on 24 carries, while also catching 2 passes for 9 yards.  Overall though the numbers are well below expectations for Miller and those who spent a mid-first round pick on the guy. 

-Raiders QB Derek Carr has shown no letup in his monster Pro Bowl 2016, completing 21-of-31 passes for 295 yards with 3 TD and 1 INT Monday night against a tough Texans defense.  Carr has been terrific from Week 1 and has firmly established himself as a top tier fantasy football QB.
