NFL Week 2 Regular Season

Las Vegas Raiders DFS Spin

Derek Carr completed 34-of-56 passes for 435 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in the Raiders' 33-27, Week 1 win over the Ravens. Carr did virtually all of his damage in the second half with the Raiders hanging 23 points on the Ravens across the fourth quarter and overtime after initially falling in a 14-0 hole in the first half. Carr's 56 attempts were the third-most of his career, and his 435 yards were the fourth-most. Carr's first touchdown was a 10-yard hookup with Darren Waller in the fourth quarter, and the second was the game-winning 31-yarder to Zay Jones in overtime with Carr fading away and Jones running free behind the defense. His interception was nearly a back-breaker at the goal line in overtime when Carr's pass went through Willie Snead's hands and popped into the air for a pick in the end zone. The Raiders got it back a couple plays later on a Lamar Jackson fumble. Carr will be a back-end QB2 for Week 2 at the Steelers.

Pittsburgh Steelers DFS Spin

Ben Roethlisberger completed just 18-of-32 passes for 188 yards and one touchdown in the Steelers' 23-16, Week 1 win over the Bills. The offense did not win this game for the Steelers, as neither Big Ben nor Najee Harris (16-45-0) produced in the air or on the ground. It was Pittsburgh's defense harassing Josh Allen that got the job done. But Big Ben's late touchdown to Diontae Johnson did prove pivotal, as Ben placed a perfect dime into the back left corner of the end zone for the five-yard score. Roethlisberger isn't going to be throwing the ball nearly as much as he did a season ago, and he'll be a mid-to-low QB2 for Week 2 against the Raiders.

On the other side, the Steelers are 0-4 against the spread in their last four games as a favorite and are 1-4 against the number in their last five games after allowing more than 350 total yards in their previous game.
