The Las Vegas Raiders are out of the playoff race, but will face their division rival the Chiefs on Saturday. After benching Derek Carr last week, Josh McDaniels went to backup Jarrett Stidham, who played well in his first start against one of, if not the best, defenses in the league, the 49ers.
Stidham popped up on the injury report with a right elbow injury, but was able to get in a limited practice. That’s a good sign that he’ll be able to go this week against Kansas City.
Jarrett Stidham injury updates
Thursday, Jan. 5 update — Stidham was removed from the team’s final injury report after a second straight full participation in practice.
Wednesday, Jan. 4 update — Stidham was able to log a full participation in Wednesday’s practice.
Tuesday, Jan 3 update — Jarrett Stidham was limited on Tuesday with a right shoulder injury.
Fantasy football advice
Stidham played well in his debut, completing 22-of-34 passes for 365 yards, three touchdowns, and two interceptions. He also rushed 7 times for 34 yards. IN a game where he’ll likely need to throw a lot, he has fantasy appeal.
