Raiders vs 49ers could be the fantasy game of the year
The release of the 2022 NFL schedule means a lot of things, and Fantasy Football strategy is one of them.
Although it may be months in the future, the Raiders will face the San Francisco 49ers in Week 17 of the regular season, a week that will be the ultimate “Fantasy Football Championship” for most fantasy leagues.
Given that both teams finished with the same 10-7 record in the 2021 season, it’s reasonable to assume that each team’s final game this coming season could be of great value to their playoff fate.
The stars of each team might feel the need to shine their best in such a scenario. Here are the following assets that could have a big impact for Fantasy owners during Championship week:
Samuel, one of the league’s first stars in the 2021 season, has the potential to have another standout season for Fantasy Football owners.
In his third professional season, the star made his first Pro Bowl appearance and received first-team All-Pro honors.
By FantasyDataSamuel ranked second among wide receivers in total fantasy points at 261.96.
Jacobs has been Las Vegas’ main backfield guy for a few seasons now, but he’ll have a lot to prove with new young running backs trying to make a name for themselves in the organization.
FantasyData had Jacobs ranked 16th among 2021 season running backs with a total of 172 fantasy points.
Aiyuk was a standout passer in his two pro seasons as a 49er. He made 16 starts in his 17 appearances for San Francisco en route to their playoff journey. FantasyData ranked him 34th for his position with a total fantasy points of 114.3.
It’s all in the name. Adams has been one of the game’s top receivers for years now, and in what will be his first pro season with college teammate, Derek Carr, NFL fans should expect to see a continuation of his dominance.
FantasyData ranked Adams fifth among wide receivers in the 2021 season with a total of 221.3 Fantasy points.
Kittle, a three-year-old Pro Bowler, was one of the best tight ends in the league during the 2021 season. FantasyData ranked him No. 4 for his position last season with a fantastic total of 127 points.
Other notable mentions between the two teams include running back Elijah Mitchell, wide receiver Hunter Renfrow and tight end Darren Waller.
