The Las Vegas Raiders take on the Los Angeles Chargers at Allegiant Stadium on Thursday Night Football in Week 15. The Raiders suffered a tough 3-0 loss to the Vikings last week. Let’s take a look at whether Raiders wide receiver Jakobi Meyers should start or sit in fantasy football this week.

Fantasy Football analysis: Raiders WR Jakobi Meyers

Meyers has the second-most receiving yards on the Raiders this season with 616, and the most receiving touchdowns at six.

Start or sit in Week 15 PPR leagues?

Start.

Meyers has been getting plenty of action from quarterback Aidan O’Connell and has seen at least five targets in four of his last five games. As the Raiders’ leading receiving TD scorer, Meyers is a start in any PPR league. The Chargers allow the eighth-most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers in the NFL, so we should expect to see some standard production from Meyers here.

Start or sit in Week 15 standard leagues?

Start.

Meyers averages a respectable 10.8 yards per catch and leads the team in receiving touchdowns. With the Chargers’ below-average pass defense, Meyers can start in standard leagues this week, as well.

Player(s) you would start ahead of Jakobi Meyers

Washington’s Curtis Samuel could start ahead of Meyers, as could Green Bay’s Romeo Doubs. However, neither are guaranteed to have a better week than Meyers.
