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 QB Matt Schaub completed just three of his seven pass attempts for 21 yards in the preseason opener Friday, Aug. 8, against the Minnesota Vikings.
Fantasy Tip: A lot of people are down on Schaub, and this type of performance won't help quiet his critics. He can still be a serviceable No. 2 fantasy QB, but his days as a fantasy starter are behind him.

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.

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.

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."

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.

Updating previous reports, Oakland Raiders QB Matt Schaub's restructured deal pays him $8 million fully guaranteed in 2014 and a non-guaranteed $5.5 million in 2015.

Oakland Raiders QB Matt Schaub will be the 16th different starting quarterback since QB Rich Gannon took his last snap with the team back in 2004.
