Fantasy football projections, Week 14: Raiders vs. Jets featuring Rod Streater, Rashad Jennings and Chris Ivory

We break down the Week 14 matchup between the Oakland Raiders and the New York Jets.

The Week 14 matchup between the Oakland Raiders and the New York Jets features a pair of wildly inconsistent offensive teams. We have all the fantasy projections for you courtesy of numberFire.

Oakland Raiders

With wide receiver Denarius Moore (shoulder) expected to miss his third straight game this week, teammate Rod Streater will likely be the most productive pass catcher for the Raiders this Sunday. Streater caught three passes last week against the Dallas Cowboys. He's far from a proven commodity, but neither is Andre Holmes, the guy starting across from him this week.

The reality is the Jets have a pretty good secondary, so running back Rashad Jennings will be counted on to move the chains. Yes, Darren McFadden is back from injury, but Jennings has been one of the league's top rushers for over a month, so he'll probably get the bulk of the touches against the Jets.

New York Jets

Rookie quarterback Geno Smith has been inconsistent and No. 1 receiver Santonio Holmes has been limited by a hamstring injury. Neither offers fantasy owners reason to have faith in the Jets' passing game. David Nelson led the team last week with just 37 yards receiving. He'd be the only viable option as a fantasy receiver against the Raiders but that's being generous.

The Jets then, like the Raiders, will have to rely on Chris Ivory in the running game to actually make something happen. Ivory ran the ball 12 times for 61 yards last week. He's mostly a borderline option in fantasy leagues as he doesn't get nearly enough touches or touchdowns to be a week-to-week option. To say the least, the Raiders are favorites in this game because of the Jets lack of offense.
