Oakland Raiders QB Matt Schaub (elbow) is still recovering from an elbow injury. Head coach Dennis Allen said Friday, Aug. 29, that he still wants to see where Schaub is physically before making the final call on his Week 1 starting quarterback.
Fantasy Tip: Schaub has been nursing a sore elbow, and rookie David Carr was lights out in the final preseason game against Seattle. Matt McGloin also has had a strong preseason, so it's anyone's guess as to who will start the opener against the Jets. The only thing that is fact, neither is a top-flight fantasy option, at least not right now.

Fantasy Tip: Janikowski has been a pretty reliable fantasy kicker for years, but in Week 1 at likely less than 100 percent, he's not a great pick for daily games. Oakland's offense is facing uncertainty at the quarterback position, too, meaning they may struggle to move the ball against the Jets.

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr dazzled in the final preseason game Thursday, Aug. 28, and could have played well enough to start the season opener over QB Matt Schaub. Carr was 11-for-13 for 143 yards against the Seattle Seahawks.
Fantasy Tip: Schaub (elbow) is still in line to start. However, this performance gave beat writer Bill Williamson the inclination that it was enough to give Carr serious consideration to start. Neither QB is worth drafting at this point, but they could become matchup plays.

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr appears firmly entrenched as the primary backup quarterback behind starter QB Matt Schaub (elbow), even though QB Matt McGloin has posted the best numbers of the preseason.

Oakland Raiders QB Matt Schaub (elbow) will be the team's starting quarterback in Week 1 against the New York Jets assuming his elbow is better and he can get in the requisite practice time, head coach Dennis Allen reiterated Wednesday, Aug. 27.
Fantasy Tip: Schaub was once a solid fantasy quarterback, but he has fallen off the map in the past year. He still has talent, and a decent surrounding cast in Oakland. However, he is only worth a look as a QB2 right now until he shows he can cut down on the mistakes which plagued him last season in Houston.
