Description: NFL.com's Steve Wyche seconds an ESPN report that the Raiders are now planning to start Kyle Boller in Week 7 against the Chiefs. Source: NFL.com
Insight: Coach Jackson has been beating around the bush on his starting QB this week. If Boller does get the start, downgrade the Raider WRs this week.
 
10/20/2010 3:04:00 PM
Description: The Denver Post reports that Oakland head coach Tom Cable "has no idea" who will be starting against the Broncos in week 7.
Insight: Bruce Gradkowski (shoulder) and Jason Campbell (knee) will both test their injuries in Wednesday's practice. If neither are ready to go, the Raiders will need to rely on Kyle Boller under center. Regardless, look for Oakland to rely heavily on their running game. (RapidDraft.com)

Description: Kyle Boller is not expected to make the Raiders' final roster.
Insight: That's pretty sad considering that he would only need to beat out Bruce Gradkowski and Charlie Frye to win the backup job. If he can't make it in Oakland, Boller is going to have a tough time catching on anywhere. (SportsBuff.com)

Description: Raiders signed QB Kyle Boller, formerly of the Rams, to an undisclosed contract.
Insight: Oh, good...another mediocre quarterback has been added to the Raiders' roster. Scary thing is, Boller actually has a good chance to start and have a little value. (sportsBuff.com)
 
12/22/2009 12:19:00 PM
Description: According to the St. Louis Post Dispatch, Rams' head coach Steve Spagnuolo would not commit to a starting QB for Week 16 against Arizona.
Insight: Rookie Keith Null has started the past two weeks, and may do so again even though Boller is "feeling better." If you're still alive in your league, this situation almost certainly has no effect on your lineup decisions. (SportsBuff.com)
 
12/19/2009 11:25:00 AM
Description: Boller (flu) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game.
Insight: The swine flu has hit the Rams hard, but it's not as though Boller is instrumental to their success. Anyone who was even thinking about playing him at this stage of the games deserves what they get. (SportsBuff.com)
 
12/17/2009 11:07:00 AM
Description: According to the Associated Press, Boller (thigh) missed practice on Wednesday due to an illness.
Insight: Rams head coach Steve Spagnuolo would not announce a starter for Sunday's game against the Texans, but rookie Keith Null could make his second straight start. (SportsBuff.com)
 
Questionable10/13/2009 12:10:00 PM
Description: According to the St. Louis Post Dispatch, Boller (concussion) will undergo a neurological exam on Tuesday to determine when he'll be able to return to action.
Insight: Marc Bulger (right shoulder) is looking likely to start this week against Jacksonville, so Boller is unlikely to see action even if he's healthy. (SportsBuff.com)
 
Questionable10/12/2009 1:00:00 PM
Description: According to the St. Louis Post Dispatch, Boller "took a pretty good shot" to the head during Sunday's game against Minnesota.
Insight: Boller was replaced by Marc Bulger (right shoulder) late in the game. That may be a sign that Bulger could be ready to go for Week 6 against Jacksonville, but hopefully most fantasy owners' fortunes aren't resting on who starts at QB for the Rams. (SportsBuff.com)
 
10/11/2009 12:39:00 PM
Description: As expected, Boller will start once again today in place of Marc Bulger.
Insight: Any fantasy team that is significantly impacted by this situation has to be in bad shape. For what it's worth, Boller looks like the slightly better quarterback between the two so far this season. (SportsBuff.com)
 
10/9/2009 10:40:00 AM
Description: Boller is expected to start this week against Minnesota in Marc Bulger's (right shoulder) place.
Insight: Boller is not worthy of being on any fantasy roster. (SportsBuff.com)
 
10/2/2009 12:40:00 PM
Description: According to the St. Louis Post Dispatch, Boller worked with the Rams' first team offense in Thursday's practice
Insight: Boller looks to be in line to start this week against San Francisco, barring a unforeseen recovery for Marc Bulger (right shoulder). (SportsBuff.com)

Description: Boller went 16-for-31 for 164 yards with two touchdowns and one interception after replacing Marc Bulger (right shoulder) in the Rams' loss to the Packers on Sunday.
Insight: Some reports have suggested that Bulger has a significant rotator cuff injury, which would make Boller the Rams' starting QB going forward. (SportsBuff.com)

Description: Boller signed with the Rams to back up Marc Bulger.
Insight: Boller started 53 games for the Ravens over five seasons. While his completion percentage increased over his career, he was mired in a pick for every TD pattern (45 TD's, 44 interceptions over his career). He is blessed with a strong arm, but has probably found his niche as a backup. (SportsBuff.com)
