Throwdown Primer 11/20 – Breaking Down Tonight’s Game Boosts!

Here we go again! Its thursday today, which means another throwdown is coming up! This time we have one team who seems to be playing awfully well, and another team whose play can only be described with some very colorful language.

Here is a sneak preview of tonight’s Game Only Boosts!

Jamaal Charles – KC 7x

Its no secret that he has been on an absolute tear as of late. Not only has he run for some nice yardage, but he has averaged a TD per game with receiving yards in tow. The Raiders’ run defense, led by top pick Khalil Mack has been quite good, but this Chiefs team is still going to make them look silly. Charles will be a big factor.

Verdict: Vital Piece

Travis Kelce – KC 7x

Being a great pass catching tight end is quickly becoming crowded at the top. Rob Gronkowski may lead the way, but Kelce has had a great year so far. Alex Smith isnt the type of QB to drive the ball down field, which means his TEs are valuable weapons. Kelce also has no cards in the game yet, so this is a chance for those Chiefs collectors to get their hands on their guy.

Verdict: Worth Picking Up

Derek Carr – OAK 7x

Despite being the 4th QB taken in this year’s draft, Carr was the only one to start in week one. He has struggled throughout the season, but his supporting cast hasnt helped him much either. He has shown flashes of brilliance, including a 4 TD game earlier this year, but this could be a long night for him. Obviously because I am writing this, he will go off. He only has one other card in the game, so that will make this GO boost pretty valuable at the 3x when it is over.

Verdict: Worth Picking Up

James Jones – OAK 7x

Listen, there just arent many guys on Oakland that are worth having as one of these cards. James Jones is one of the only Raiders receivers that has done okay this year, and I am not surprised he got the nod with McFadden having so many issues. Of the four guys today, he is the weakest, but he is always good for a few catches here and there.

Verdict: Low Priority

Honorable Mentions:

Alex Smith – Since turning the ball over 3 times in the first game, he has only had 2 other turnovers this year. His only knock is that he doesnt bring a dynamic element to the offense.

Darren McFadden – Without a good offensive line, both he and his buddies have had a VERY tough time running the ball.

GOOD LUCK tonight everyone!
