Raiders head coach Tom Cable has announced that QB Jason Campbell will start on Sunday, as Bruce Gradkowski is still out with a shoulder injury.

Campbell has started the team's previous four games, with the Raiders going 3-1 in those contests. In six games this season, the QB has thrown for six TDs and four INTs.

The way we see it

The big question for Cable will be, once Gradkowski is healthy enough to play: Does he stick with Campbell or go to his former starter? If the Raiders win on Sunday vs. the Chiefs, it will be a tough sell to Oakland players and fans that Gradkowski gives the team a better chance of winning than Campbell.

Fantasy spin

The Raiders will still be a run-first team no matter who is at quarterback, so it would be wise to stay away from Campbell if other options are available.
