MATT HARMON: There was a couple of times where the Raiders just absolutely dominated this game, Scott, and it was mostly on the back of-- again, there are two dudes. Like, Josh Jacobs and Davante Adams have unbelievable fantasy roles. I mean, the fantasy roles that you dream of, right? And, obviously, Josh Jacobs is a feature back. He's coming off this 300 yard game last week. He's a game time decision, quote unquote, on this game. Didn't look like it, 26 carries, 144 yards, a touchdown, two catches as well.

But, man, Davante Adams, like, Scott, I think you could argue that Davante Adams is having his best season right now as a pro, which is crazy because, obviously, he is coming off a bunch of storied seasons with the Packers. You know, he's been unbelievable statistically, but, like, Davante Adams has always been an unbelievable when you isolate him from Aaron, Rodgers in at least the last four years in Green Bay, right? You know he's number one-- or number two in success rate versus man and press coverage per reception every year.

He's an elite route runner, elite player, and now, he's on pace for 112 receptions, 100-- 1,600 yards and 17 touchdowns in 17 games. Like, statistically, that would be some of his best work. And, again, like it's not all about stats. I think counting stats is kind of a silly way to evaluate pure wide receiver play most of the times, but it's just unbelievable that Rodgers, obviously, struggling in Green Bay. The Raiders aren't that great of a team, right? They're 5 and 7 now at this point.

But it's like we can't lose track of the fact that I think Adams has had an incredible statement year for his career, and this game, I think, against the Chargers, he was like completely uncoverable, was probably the statement game within that season.

SCOTT PIANOWSKI: Yeah, man, I feel like the Raiders got their season fixed. It may be too late because they're just 5 and 7, but maybe that was just a little too late to adjust to it. Not that what do you-- do you got to trade for Jacobs or Adams and the trade deadline is gone in most leagues, and people would have wanted a lot for them anyway. It was like a month ago where people were thinking, Oh, OK, who did you wrong in the first round? Yeah, you should have taken Davante Adams. I mean, Davante Adams has a decent chance to end the year as a wide receiver one, and he's going to end the year in the top three.

Derek Carr, having a nice season. Jacobs, as you said, the concentration here is so ridiculously narrow. Pretty much when somebody taps you in the shoulder and says the Raiders just scored, you know it's one of two guys. And that's a fantasy dream.
