Oakland Raiders QB Matt Schaub will start the season-opener at the New York Jets. Despite a shaky start to his preseason, Schaub has the confidence of the coaching staff, and there is not a quarterback controversy in Oakland.
Fantasy Tip: This is good enough news to keep Schaub in the conversation as a late-round fantasy pick, but take it with a grain of salt. He is still facing legitimate pressure to succeed.

Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden has performed well during training camp and shown some explosiveness during his runs, according to head coach Dennis Allen. "I think Darren is probably running the ball as well as I've seen him run it since I've been here. I think he's probably more explosive than I've seen him since I've been here. I think part of that is that he's remained healthy throughout the offseason, throughout training camp. There haven't been any kind of nicks or nagging little deals that have slowed him down. So, hopefully that trend will continue because I've seen a lot of positives in what he's done in the running game," Allen said.
Fantasy Tip: McFadden is competing with Maurice Jones-Drew for the starting running back job but both should receive carries this season. Owners should consider McFadden as a weekly flex option, because he will not be the main option in the running game for the Raiders.
