The Denver Broncos will travel to Las Vegas to take on the Raiders on Sunday. Wide receiver Tim Patrick has played well this season and actually earned himself a three-year extension worth up to $34.5 million with $18.5 million guaranteed.
Fantasy Football analysis: Broncos WR Tim Patrick
This season, Patrick has 45 receptions for 621 yards and five touchdowns. Last week, he had three catches for 42 yards and a touchdown. That’s important because the touchdown pass was from Drew Lock who will be starting his first game of the season. In the past, those two have connected quite a few times on big plays.
The Las Vegas Raiders defense allows 225.3 passing yards which ranks 13th in the NFL. They’ve done a decent job in the last few weeks limiting opposing passing offenses. In their last matchup, they held Nick Mullens and the Browns to 147 passing yards. I think this will be a week where Tim Patrick scores a ton of fantasy points.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
In both season-long fantasy and DFS, Patrick should start.
