Thu, 23 Oct 2014 12:05:57 -0700
Oakland Raiders WR Brice Butler could receive more playing time moving forward after making a big play in each of the last two weeks. Butler said he has not lobbied for more playing time but hopes his play speaks for itself.
Fantasy Tip: Butler has only caught seven passes this season but is averaging 21 yards per catch. His role in the offense is uncertain, but owners should monitor his playing time to see if he becomes more involved in the passing game. Butler has a price of $3,000 on FantasyScore, but owners should look to use more reliable options.

Fantasy Tip: Carr looked much improved coming off his bye week against the San Diego Chargers in Week 6. He's not a bad option for FantasyScore players looking to save a little loot at the position.

Fantasy Tip: Carr faces an Arizona Cardinals defense that is allowing 318 yards and two touchdowns per game to quarterbacks. He's a value play on FantasyScore for the price of $5,100.

Fantasy Tip: Carr is coming off the best performance of his early career, and he is an attractive FantasyScore play at $5,100 (or 10.2 percent of cap), as long as he returns to a full practice by Friday and is deemed ready to go for Week 7.

Fantasy Tip: With McFadden looking like the clear No. 1 back, an increased emphasis on the run game should boost his value going forward. He probably isn't a great play at FantasyScore in Week 7 when the Raiders face the third-ranked run defense of the Arizona Cardinals, but McFadden could turn into a useful option when the matchups are favorable.

Fantasy Tip: Carr will start in the game but should not be a starting option in any league this week.
