The Oakland Raiders welcome the Chicago Bears to the O.co Coliseum Sunday looking to improve to 7-4 and improve their AFC West lead. The Raiders are dealing with a variety of injuries that raise question marks on offense and open the door for some other fantasy options.
The Raiders will be without the services of RB Darren McFadden and Jacoby Ford, and also are looking at Denarius Moore and Darrius Heyward-Bey as questionable. This opens the door for a variety of players to get some targets, but that does not make them particularly useful fantasy football options. Chaz Schilens and Louis Murphy are looking at a decent amount of targets, but any upside is negated by not really knowing who will see what from Carson Palmer.
The good news out of Oakland is that kicker Sebastian Janikowski is reportedly feeling good and thinks he might be past the hamstring injury that has limited him in recent weeks. If that's the case, he suddenly moves back to the top few kickers in fantasy football.
Must Starts: Michael Bush, Sebastian Janikowski
Situational Start: Raiders D/ST
Situational Starts Pending Inactive List: Darrius Heyward-Bey, Denarius Moore
Sit: Carson Palmer
