Jimmy Garoppolo (Back) Ruled Out Sunday vs Bears

Time to put Jakobi Meyers back on the shelf for this week. Garoppolo was already trending in the wrong direction for the Raiders’ Sunday afternoon tilt with the Bears, so him being ruled out this early in the week comes as no surprise. That leaves backups Brian Hoyer and Aidan O’Connell to duke things out to be the starter this week, but either option will leave the Raiders’ receiving weapons with a lower ceiling than they would normally have with Jimmy G under center. The matchup against the Bears is actually pretty favorable for Davante Adams and co., and Brian Hoyer looked nothing short of serviceable in his limited action last week at the end of the game. Adams will be a mid-to-low WR1 start this week, while Meyers looks to fit the description of a low-WR2 with upside.
