Raiders-Steelers Daily Fantasy NFL Picks, Betting Odds

Gambling911.com has your Raiders-Steelers Daily Fantasy NFL picks and betting odds for Week 9.  The Steelers are a -4.5 home favorite versus a Raiders team that looks like they are for real this season following a brow beating of the Jets in Week 8.

What to Consider with the Oakland Raiders - The Raiders have yet to allow a back to carry for more than 91 yards coming into Week 8. 

The Raiders allow the most fantasy points to opposing tight ends.

What to Consider with the Pittsburgh Steelers – Pittsburgh has been decent against opposing quarterbacks so this may not be the spot to go with Derek Carr even though he will likely have excellent value once again.

Coming into Week 6, no back had gone over 70 yards on the ground, and no running back has found his way into the end zone at all this season.  The Steelers ranked number 3 against the run after the first quarter of the season and 7th against the run after the first half.  

The Steelers are vulnerable to opposing tight ends and wide receivers though.  

Who to Play

Amari Cooper ($6.7K) - Cooper caught 5-of-9 targets for 46 yards Week 8 against the Jets.  He’s a good value pick against a Pittsburgh team that does not have a strong defender against the run.

Clive Walford ($2.6K) – He found the end zone for the first time in his NFL career two weeks ago.  He’s worth a look against this woeful Steelers squad when it comes to defending tight ends.  Exercise care though.  He’s a high risk bet.

Heath Miller ($2.7K) – He was fantastic against Cincinnati last week with more game time. Miller caught 10-of-13 targets for 108 yards in Pittsburgh's Week 8 loss to the Bengals.  And this week he will face a Raiders team that is especially vulnerable to opposing tight ends.
