This week’s picks
Derek Carr passing yards O/U: 266.5
■ Vincent Bonsignore: Over —The Raiders’ passing attack will be aggressive.
■ Ed Graney: Over — Who do you think this guy is, Matthew Stafford in the Rams’ opening-game loss to the Bills?
■ Adam Hill: Over — This should be a high-scoring affair, especially without prized offseason acquisition J.C. Jackson, who was supposed to fix the Chargers’ anemic pass defense.
■ Sam Gordon: Over — Both teams yield explosive offenses that could turn this game into a shootout.
■ Heidi Fang: Over – With plenty of targets, don’t be surprised if Carr throws for close to 300 yards.
Davante Adams receptions O/U: 6.5
■ Vincent Bonsignore: Over —Expect Adams to be targeted early and often.
■ Ed Graney: Over — Adams and Carr, the greatest duo since Scooby Doo &Shaggy.
■ Adam Hill: Over — It’s the first time he’s played with his good friend Derek Carr since college. They’re about to make up for lost time.
■ Sam Gordon: Over — What Vinny said.
■ Heidi Fang: Over — Might be the easiest money you make all week.
Darren Waller receiving yards O/U: 48.5
■ Vincent Bonsignore: Over —He’ll find his way into the offense. Too good not to.
■ Ed Graney: Over — Not going under on the first game as a Drew Rosenhaus client.
■ Adam Hill: Under — It could take some time to get him acclimated to the Josh McDaniels offense after he missed the majority of training camp.
■ Sam Gordon: Over — The familiarity with Carr should make up for the missed time during training camp.
■ Heidi Fang: Over — The Chargers will try to double-team Adams, leaving Waller wide open.
Justin Herbert passing yards O/U: 283.5
■ Vincent Bonsignore: Under —Raiders defensive game plan will slow him down.
■ Ed Graney: Under — Justin, meet Maxx and Chandler.
■ Adam Hill: Under — The Chargers could choose to attack the Raiders on the ground to keep Maxx Crosby and Chandler Jones from pinning their ears back and just bearing down on Herbert..
■ Sam Gordon: Over — He’ll have to throw too if this thing becomes a shootout.
■ Heidi Fang: Over — The Chargers will try to test the Raiders’ secondary.
Austin Ekeler rushing yards O/U: 59.5
■ Vincent Bonsignore: Over —Not that he will rip the Raiders, but he’ll get his.
■ Ed Graney: Over — You can’t be a Top 5 Fantasy League pick and not gain at least 60 yards here.
■ Adam Hill: Over — He will be very busy in both the running and passing game.
■ Sam Gordon: Under — The Chargers don’t tend to commit to the running game.
