Raiders | Matt Schaub learning, getting better

Mon, 14 Jul 2014 13:12:54 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Matt Schaub is doing what it takes to get better, according to CB Charles Woodson. Woodson said Schaub has been talking with defensive coordinator Jason Tarver after practice, which tells Woodson that Schaub knows how to improve. Woodson added that the team expects big things from him this season.

Fantasy Tip: It's great that Schaub is working hard to improve, but he's still not a reliable fantasy quarterback, especially after what he showed us last season. He's too risky to draft as a starter, so draft him as a backup if you must draft him.

Raiders | Derek Carr could push Matt Schaub

Sun, 08 Jun 2014 14:23:34 -0700

There is an internal belief that Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr could push QB Matt Schaub to start. He has already proven to the staff he won't need to sit on the sidelines in the 2014 season.

Fantasy Tip: Both players are worthy of QB2 spots, but Carr's upside could make him worthy of a QB1 slot for bye weeks at some point.

Raiders | Matt Schaub excited

Fri, 23 May 2014 06:09:41 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Matt Schaub is excited to have more control of the offense in Oakland. "To come to an offense where the coach is looking to give you more freedom, and looking to give you more control of things," Schaub said. "I had that in some aspects in Houston, but there are things I'm being asked to do here that I didn't have control of in Houston. I would have loved to, but we just weren't in control of it. To now be in that position, and being the quarterback, that's such a great place to be because you can get everyone on the same page."

Raiders | Matt Schaub will be fine if team drafts QB

Wed, 09 Apr 2014 11:46:46 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Matt Schaub said he would not be upset if the team selects a quarterback during the 2014 NFL Draft, because he understands the team will look to add a younger player at the position for the future. "As you get older, teams are always going to try and find young players to come in and compete. I was one of those guys myself at one point. As a player, you just have to do your job to the best of your ability and let the chips fall where they may. I'm looking forward to helping the team in any way possible. I'm going to be the guy to lead them and show them the way," Schaub said.

Raiders | Acquire Matt Schaub

Fri, 21 Mar 2014 13:53:40 -0700

The Oakland Raiders acquired QB Matt Schaub (Texans) Friday, March 26, in exchange for a sixth-round draft pick.

Fantasy Tip: As of right now, Schaub is likely to be the starting QB, but really should not be counted on to be more than a weak QB2. If he does not start, he has no fantasy football value.

Raiders | Expected to acquire Matt Schaub

Fri, 21 Mar 2014 05:47:03 -0700

The Oakland Raiders are expected to send a late-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft to the Houston Texans for QB Matt Schaub. Schaub will likely compete with Terrelle Pryor for the starting job in camp. Pryor has been slow to develop and enters his third, and likely, make-or-break season with the club. Schaub will have to perform well to hold him off.

Fantasy Tip: Schaub will likely compete with Terrelle Pryor for the starting job in camp. Pryor has been slow to develop and enters his third and likely make-or-break season with the club. Schaub will have to perform well to hold him off. Schaub is set to make $10 million in 2014, and you would think that gives him a leg up.

Texans | Ryan Fitzpatrick signing

Thu, 20 Mar 2014 15:29:46 -0700

The Houston Texans are signing free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Titans) to an undisclosed two-year deal Thursday, March 20, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: The move signals the end to Matt Schaub's run in Houston. He's expected to be released. It won't keep Houston from selecting a quarterback with the No. 1 overall pick in the draft, however. Fitzpatrick is a veteran QB that could mentor a rookie quarterback or Case Keenum, if they decide to go that route.

Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak said he isn't committed to QB Case Keenum starting the rest of the team's regular season games. "He has to continue to play well to stay in there," Kubiak said.

Fantasy Tip: The Texans are in the midst of a lost season, so we doubt Matt Schaub will get another chance unless Keenum tanks in a few games or is injured. Keenum isn't a bad midrange QB1 if you're starter is injured or on bye.

Texans | Matt Schaub returns to practice

Mon, 28 Oct 2013 10:44:31 -0700

Houston Texans QB Matt Schaub (ankle) returned to practice Monday, Oct. 28, but will be the backup quarterback to QB Case Keenum in Week 9 versus the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Tip: Schaub should be left to the waiver wire for now. He could win the starting job back if Keenum struggles, but with his ankle likely not being 100 percent for the rest of the year, we wonder how effective he'd be if he's at the helm of the offense again.
