Expert 
Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
The Raiders allowed the fourth most points to opposing QBs in 2019, and new Panthers QB Teddy Bridgewater should find success moving the ball downfield in a friendly Week 1 matchup. He's got some quality weapons at his disposal in D.J. Moore, Robby Anderson, Curtis Samuel, and Christian McCaffrey, and Bridgewater makes a quality play this week. He's likely sitting on your waiver wire. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Many talk about the Panthers falling behind in games this year, leading to many pass attempts. While I won't disagree with that sentiment, the line on this game suggests it'll be closer than most believe. On top of that, the Raiders games averaged just 122.0 plays per game in total, which was the second-lowest number in football and limited overall upside. The did allow a ridiculously high 6.27 percent touchdown rate, as well as 8.28 yards per attempt. Based on passing attempts alone, they allowed 0.57 fantasy points per attempt, which ranked as the second-most to only the Dolphins. But again, there were just five quarterbacks who threw more than 31 pass attempts against them due to the turtle-pace they move at. If Bridgewater can be efficient with his passes, he has a good chance to be a streamer, as 9-of-16 quarterbacks finished as top-12 quarterbacks against the Raiders despite the low volume. Given the new offense, it may be difficult to come out extremely efficient, but Joe Brady's offense should be considered a net-positive overall. Bridgewater should be considered a solid QB2 play this week. 
Jacob Wayne
Lineups
The concurrent arrivals of first-year guys in head coach Matt Rhule, offensive coordinator Joe Brady, and quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has me excited about this offense for fantasy. I anticipate Bridgewater being very usable in plus matchups, and this certainly qualifies. The Raiders allowed the most yards per attempt to QBs last year and had the fourth-lowest interception rate. The Raiders also gave up the fourth-most fantasy points to QBs. Bridgewater's pass-catching corps, headlined by Christian McCaffrey and D.J. Moore, is wildly underrated and I'm very excited to see this offense go to work in Week 1. Bridgewater is a very viable deep-league, 2QB, or Superflex starter this week. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
This Panthers matchup against the Raiders could easily become a barn burner, which means Bridgewater and Derek Carr both turn into intriguing fantasy plays in deeper leagues. While I wouldn't suggest starting Bridgewater right out of the gate in a 1QB league, this offense is going to have to carry the young and inexperienced defense that they have in Carolina. If you're looking for someone to roll out in 2QB leagues, Bridgewater's an enticing play. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Raiders were just 28th against fantasy quarterbacks last year, Bridgewater has an excellent chance of starting off the season with a big fantasy game. He is a great streamer at home in this matchup.
