Fantasy Football Sit/Start Projections, Week 14: Michael Bush Needs To Carry Oakland Raiders Offense

The Oakland Raiders travel to Lambeau Field on Sunday to face the undefeated Green Bay Packers in an incredibly tough matchup. The Packers are tough no matter what, but the Raiders will enter the game extremely short-handed, playing without Darren McFadden, Jacoby Ford, Denarius Moore and Taiwan Jones.
