Oakland Raiders coach Dennis Allen said he intends to stick with QB Matt McGloin as his starting quarterback for now in remarks made at his press conference on Friday, Nov. 29. However, Allen also wants to get another look at QB Terrelle Pryor before this season ends. It is all part of Allen and general manager Reggie McKenzie gathering as much information as possible on their quarterback situation before they head into the offseason.

Oakland Raiders QB Matt McGloin will start in the team's Week 12 game, according to head coach Dennis Allen.
Fantasy Tip: Even coming off a start that saw him put up decent numbers, McGloin should only be considered as a bye week replacement in deeper leagues at this point.

Oakland Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor has posted a passer rating of 97.6, which ranks behind only Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning, Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo, San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers, New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers and Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan. His completion percentage of 68.3 trails only Manning, Rivers, Romo, Brees and Ryan, and he has a 72.7 completion percentage in the pocket, which is fourth-best in the NFL. "His mechanics have really improved," head coach Dennis Allen said Wednesday, Oct. 9. "He's got a good presence in the pocket, yet can get out and make plays. He's always been a great athlete, but he's getting better as a quarterback."
Fantasy Tip: Pryor has emerged as a low-end No. 1 fantasy option in most leagues of 12 or more teams. He has surprised more than any other fantasy quarterback to this point, as far as success. There are plenty who have surprised by being disappointing.

Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said QB Terrelle Pryor (concussion) is ready to play in the team's Week 5 game.
Fantasy Tip: Pryor looks to be a full go, and you should plan on using him as you normally would in Week 5.

Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said he does not believe RB Darren McFadden's (hamstring) injury will keep him out a long time but will see how the injury responds.

Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen praised RB Rashad Jennings for running hard when he was inserted into the lineup for RB Darren McFadden (hamstring). "He went in there and ran the ball hard," Allen said. "He did an admirable job of filling in for McFadden."
Fantasy Tip: If McFadden misses any time, Jennings is a player to target on the waiver wire as it appears he will be the guy as long as McFadden is out.

Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said Tuesday, Sept. 24, that the team will prepare for QB Terrelle Pryor (concussion) and QB Matt Flynn being the starter for the Week 4 game against the Washington Redskins.

Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden is still vital to the Raiders offense, even with QB Terrelle Pryor running the read option offense, according to head coach Dennis Allen. "Darren understands how the read-option functions and when we call those types of plays, and again, that's part of what we do, it's not exclusively what we do," Allen said. "There will be times when we turn around and hand the ball to Darren and give him an opportunity that he knows he's running the football. Darren's going to be fine, guys. Everybody's got a lot of concern about that, but Darren's going to be fine."
Fantasy Tip: Having a quarterback that can run does ding a running back’s value a bit. While you still have to start McFadden, keep in mind he may not bring in the same value as he would if he had a traditional signal caller in front of him.

Updating a previous report, Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said that RB Darren McFadden (shoulder) will "absolutely" be ready for Week 1 of the season. It is not known if he will play in the final preseason game.
Fantasy Tip: It sounds like McFadden will be ready to go for the start of the regular season, but with his history, the big question as always will be if he can stay healthy moving forward.
