The Raiders will name Jon Gruden their new HC at a press conference on Tuesday, according to multiple reports. Gruden has been out of the NFL since 2008 but has 11 years of head-coaching experience, including 4 with the Raiders. Throwing in another 3 years as Eagles OC, Gruden's offensive track record has been volatile. He's landed 5 of those 14 teams inside the top 7 in total yards but had another 5 finish 22nd or worse. Gruden's teams have varied between pass- and run-leaning, with 8 of his 14 squads ranking higher in pass attempts than rush attempts.

The Raiders have fired HC Jack Del Rio. He took his team to the playoffs a year ago but regressed to a 6-10 record this season. Del Rio is a defensive mind whose Raiders defenses underachieved. Oakland is believed to be targeting Jon Gruden as its next HC.

Rain showers are expected for at least part of today's Raiders-Bills game, along with 12-14 mph winds. It won't be ideal weather for the passing and kicking games, but it doesn't look bad enough to adjust our projections. Consider the weather here, though, if deciding between 2 similarly ranked players.

Raiders QB Derek Carr (back) is not listed on the final Week 6 injury report after putting in a full practice on Friday. The back injury still adds a bit of risk to his outlook, but Carr is on the low-end QB1 radar in what could be a shootout against the Chargers.

Raiders HC Jack Del Rio confirmed on Monday that QB Derek Carr (back) is expected to play against the Chargers on Sunday. Carr got in 2 limited practices last week and looked good. We'll monitor his practice participation this week, but plan on him being back under center this weekend. It's obviously excellent news for Oakland's skill-position guys.
