QB - LV - OUT
Week 4 Outlook
Garoppolo has been ruled out (concussion). It's unclear who will start in his place this week. It could be either Aidan O'Connell or Brian Hoyer. Whoever it is under center this week will have a glorious matchup. The Chargers have allowed the second-highest yards per attempt, the sixth-highest passer rating, and the most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks. Every skill player on the Raiders offense should hope O'Connell gets the start. Among 79 qualifying quarterbacks in the preseason, O'Connell ranked sixth in passing grade, 18th in adjusted completion rate, and 16th in yards per attempt. Hoyer was abysmal. Among the same preseason sample of quarterbacks, Hoyer was 72nd in passing grade and 61st in adjusted completion rate. If Hoyer starts, I won't be surprised if the Raiders lean heavily on the run. Each quarterback is a QB2 that you are only worrying about a start or sit decision with in a Superflex format. O'Connell is the only one with any chance at a ceiling outcome, though.
