Las Vegas Raiders: 5 bold predictions vs. Los Angeles Chargers in Week 4

5. Hunter Renfrow will lead the team in receiving yards with over 100

Putting up points on this Chargers defense will not be easy, but that is what will be required out of the Raiders offense is they want to get to 4-0. While many people tabbed the Bolts as the second-best team in the AFC West entering this season, the Raiders will have a few things to say about that. However, the Chargers did hand the Kansas City Chiefs their second straight defeat.

So if the Raiders want to stay perfect, they will need to get yards where they can. Given how stout the Chargers are in the secondary, Derek Carr and the passing offense will have to take advantage of the middle of the field. Enter Hunter Renfrow. The slot receiver will have one of his best games in Raiders uniform. Look for him to lead the team in receiving yards with over 100 Monday night.

While there will be times where Carr will essentially force-feed the ball in Renfrow’s direction, that will be what is necessary to move the sticks and keep drives alive. A lot of these completions going his way will not be for big gains, but little becomes big over time. Naturally, Renfrow will have the most receptions of any player in the Raiders receiving corps on Monday Night Football as well.

Look for Renfrow to have around eight receptions for just a tad over 100 yards to lead the way.
