Raiders at Browns, Sun.: 1 p.m. ET

  1. Through two games, the Raiders have passes for 554 yards and five touchdowns. The Browns have allowed 436 yards passing and four touchdowns through their first two games.
  1. Derek Carr's 351 yards passing in Week 2 were a career high. He had just one 300-yard game as a rookie however, and followed it up with five straight games with fewer than 200 yards.
  1. Latavius Murray has at least 18 touches and 80 total yards in both games this year and now has at least 76 total yards in six straight games. He faces the Browns, who are allowing a league-high 155 yards rushing per game to running backs on 5.13 yards per carry.
  1. Michael Crabtree is fifth among all receivers with 24 targets through two games. His nine catches for 111 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 produced his best Fantasy day since Week 17 of 2012. This week he faces off with Tramon Williams, who has allowed just 56 yards receiving through two games.
  1. Amari Cooper has at least nine targets in each game and topped the century mark along with Crabtree in Week 2. He faces Joe Haden, who has allowed a touchdown in each of the first two games.

  1. Benjamin leads the NFL with three touchdown grabs of 50-plus yards and a ridiculous 34 yards per catch average. Johnny Manziel, who will not start against the Raiders, has thrown all three of those touchdowns.
  1. The Raiders have allowed at least 100 yards rushing, a rushing touchdown and 20 Fantasy points to running backs in both games to start the 2015 season.
