2019 Fantasy Outlook
Despite posting a 1:4 TD:INT ratio through his first eight games in the NFL, coach Jon Gruden somehow still sees enough in Peterman to have brought him over to Oakland in an effort to compete with Mike Glennon for the primary backup role at quarterback behind Derek Carr. In two starts with the Bills last season, Peterman infamously tossed five picks to zero touchdowns, though he did complete 31 of 49 passes in a 41-9 loss to the Bears while averaging a measly 3.84 yards per attempt. Peterman's spot on the 53-man roster is not guaranteed, but he'll likely just need to beat out Landry Jones to land third on the team's QB depth chart. Read Past Outlooks

Peterman signed a reserve/future contract with the Raiders on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Peterman's struggles with the Bills over the last two years have been well-documented with just three touchdowns compared to 12 interceptions in eight games. Josh Allen is the clear future for Buffalo, and Matt Barkley will be a serviceable backup, so the Bills cut Peterman in November. According to Paul Gutierrez of, coach Jon Gruden likes Peterman's athleticism and sees a chance to reinvent him. "Hopefully, we can take him into the offseason program. See if we can restart him and get him going," Gruden said. Peterman will battle AJ McCarron to be Derek Carr's backup in 2019.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
The second-year triggerman out of Pitt should benefit from a full year in the league and an offseason to get acquainted to life in the pros. A quarterback room with rookie Josh Allen and largely untested free-agent acquisition AJ McCarron could have a fluid depth chart in the early going. Allen is certainly the quarterback of the future, but who is the quarterback of the present? In all likelihood, it'll be McCarron to start the season, but Peterman should have an opportunity to challenge for the job.
Peterman was regarded by some pundits as the most "pro-ready" quarterback in this year's draft, but waited until the fifth round and pick No. 171 to be selected by the Bills. The organization has shown support to incumbent Tyrod Taylor, but drafting Peterman opens the door to future competition.
