WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Nathan Peterman | Bears QB

The Raiders waived Nathan Peterman.

Peterman was somewhat of a project for former head coach Jon Gruden, and the Raiders are now moving in another direction for now. Marcus Mariota is also probably healthier for Vegas coming off the bye.

Nathan Peterman | Bears QB

The Raiders re-signed Nathan Peterman.

It's a one-year deal for Peterman to keep him in Las Vegas next season. Jon Gruden is a fan of the Pitt product, and he clearly likes having him in the quarterback room along with Derek Carr and Marcus Mariota.

The Raiders placed Nathan Peterman on injured reserve.

It looks like the Raiders are basically stashing Peterman on injured reserve, and this allows the team to keep Mike Glennon as the No. 2 quarterback and the recently-claimed DeShone Kizer as the No. 3. This isn't bad for Peterman, as he'll get to stay in the building with Jon Gruden and learn this year before potentially competing for the backup role in 2020.

UPDATE: The Raiders have signed Nathan Peterman to the practice squad.

This is instead of signing him to the 53-man roster. It doesn't matter much, as Derek Carr and A.J. McCarron are Oakland's top two quarterbacks. Peterman will look to develop on the practice squad under the coaching of Jon Gruden.

Nathan Peterman | Bears QB

The Raiders are signing Nathan Peterman, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The 2017 fifth-round pick of the Bills was without a team for over a month, but he's back in a good spot with one of the league's best quarterback coaches in Jon Gruden. Oakland's head coach got a chance to host Peterman for his "Gruden's QB Camp" on ESPN leading up to the 2017 draft, and he likes the former Pitt quarterback. Peterman will look to develop with the Raiders, but he's obviously not a fantasy option right now.

Nathan Peterman | Bears QB

The Bills have released Nathan Peterman.

With Matt Barkley playing well yesterday for the Bills, the team is moving on from their 2017 fifth-round pick. Peterman's Bills career ends with three touchdowns and 12 interceptions, as he really struggled to get much going while playing with a subpar supporting cast. The Pitt product will draw interest around the league, but he might have to settle for a practice squad spot for now. Josh Allen (right elbow) is expected to be ready after the team's Week 11 bye, so Barkley is set to back him up moving forward.

Nathan Peterman | Bears QB

Nathan Peterman throws three interceptions against the Bears.

Peterman was 31/49 for 189 yards and three interceptions, including a pick-six on a deflected pass in the flat, in the Bills' Week 9 loss. Peterman also added eight carries for 46 yards and a touchdown, the first rushing score of his career. The second-year quarterback doesn't have a strong supporting cast, so he's in a tough situation to get off on the right foot in his career. Peterman would not be a recommended fantasy option if he draws another start next week.

Nathan Peterman | Bears QB

Nathan Peterman is expected to start for the Bills this week, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Derek Anderson is dealing with a concussion, so the second-year quarterback is set to draw the start against the Bears. The Chicago D/ST would have been the top fantasy defense for Week 9 regardless, but Peterman has struggled in limited action to this point in his career. He's set to get valuable experience leading a 2-6 team, though.

Nathan Peterman | Bears QB

Nathan Peterman plays in relief against the Patriots.

After Derek Anderson left with an apparent forearm injury on Buffalo's final drive, Peterman entered the game and went 2/2 for 23 yards. The second-year quarterback won't be a recommended fantasy option if he starts versus the Bears in Week 9.

Nathan Peterman | Bears QB

Nathan Peterman struggles in relief of Josh Allen (elbow) as Bills fall to the Texans, 20-13.

Peterman was 6/12 for 61 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions, including the go-ahead pick six for Houston with the game tied 13-13 with under two minutes to play. His second interception came on the following drive to drop Buffalo to 2-4. It's unfortunate for a guy that's shown flashes, but Peterman has struggled when the games count over the past two years. The Colts will be an excellent D/ST streamer in Week 7 if Peterman is under center.

Nathan Peterman | Bears QB

Nathan Peterman struggles in Week 1 loss.

Peterman was 5/18 for 24 yards and two interceptions before getting benched for rookie Josh Allen. The stat line is obviously ugly, but Peterman didn't have much of a chance with the Bills overmatched by Baltimore's defense. We'll see if Peterman gets inserted back into the starting lineup, but he's obviously not a recommended fantasy option if he starts against the Chargers, the team he threw five interceptions against in his first start last season.

Nathan Peterman | Bears QB

The Bills have named Nathan Peterman their starting quarterback.

While rookie Josh Allen was impressive this preseason, this was expected. In the team's third preseason game, Allen had no time to throw and was beat up; meanwhile, Peterman got the ball out of his hands quickly to his receivers when he entered the game. Buffalo has an extremely tough early-season schedule, so they are going with the more experienced quarterback while taking things slow with their franchise signal-caller. Peterman is not a recommended fantasy option to open the season, especially against this brutal schedule.

Nathan Peterman | Bears QB

Nathan Peterman plays toward end of Bills' playoff loss.

Tyrod Taylor left with an injury with under two minutes to go against the Jaguars, and the rookie Peterman was tasked with trying to lead the team to a game-tying touchdown drive. Peterman was 1/2 for 14 yards and an interception along with a four-yard carry. The four-yard carry was for a first down, and the interception was on a curl route that was picked off by Jalen Ramsey, sealing the win for the Jags. Buffalo's quarterback situation heading into next season is very much in the air, and there's a chance Peterman is in the discussion for the starting job.

Nathan Peterman | Bears QB

Nathan Peterman (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 15.

Peterman is far along in the concussion protocol, as he's been practicing fully, but the Bills have went ahead and ruled him out ahead of the weekend. The rookie quarterback should be fully cleared by Week 16.

Nathan Peterman | Bears QB

Nathan Peterman (concussion) is practicing fully.

If Peterman isn't fully cleared of his concussion, he should be very soon. Barring any setbacks, Peterman will backup Tyrod Taylor, who's practicing fully and set to return after missing one game, against the Dolphins.

Nathan Peterman | Bears QB

Nathan Peterman remains in concussion protocol.

While he's in concussion protocol, Peterman is very close to getting cleared. Hopefully he's feeling better, and he appears likely to get the full "OK" within the next couple of days. However, Tyrod Taylor will start this week against the Dolphins if healthy.

Nathan Peterman | Bears QB

Nathan Peterman leaves game against the Bills.

Peterman slid head first and took a hard hit from a Colts defender, and teammates immediately called the training staff over. It appears Peterman is set to enter concussion protocol, and his day could be over. Joe Webb is now in at quarterback, and it's probably a good time to use him in a game with a lot of snow coming down.

Nathan Peterman | Bears QB

Nathan Peterman struggles in relief of an injured Tyrod Taylor.

Peterman was 6/15 for 50 yards, zero touchdowns, and zero interceptions. He also rushed once for nine yards. Taylor wasn't much better (9/18 for 65 and an interception), as the entire offense struggled for Buffalo in the 23-3 loss. Even against the Colts in Week 14, Peterman won't be a fantasy option if he makes his second career start.

Nathan Peterman | Bears QB

The Bills benched quarterback Nathan Peterman.

Unfortunately, Peterman's first career start went about as bad as possible, as he was 6/14 for 66 yards and five interceptions. While the Chargers are getting a ton of pressure on the rookie quarterback, he still made some bad decisions and inaccurate throws. It might've been a little overdue down by 30 to open the second half, but former starter Tyrod Taylor is back out there.

Nathan Peterman | Bears QB

Nathan Peterman is now the starting quarterback for the Bills.

Bills head coach Sean McDermott just announced that the rookie will get the nod this Sunday against the Chargers. While Peterman played very well at the end of Sunday's blowout loss to the Saints, this is a bit of a surprise considering they are 5-4 and Tyrod Taylor has played very well this season. Perhaps they believe the pro-ready Peterman will move the offense more consistently than Taylor did, and this comes after a two-game losing streak after a 5-2 start to the season. There's certainly a chance Peterman doesn't start every one of these last seven games (and possibly in the playoffs), but if he does it gives the Bills a chance to get a good look at him heading into 2018.

Nathan Peterman | Bears QB

Nathan Peterman plays at the end of Bills loss.

With Buffalo down big to the Saints, the rookie was inserted into the game for starter Tyrod Taylor. Peterman played well, going 7/10 for 79 yards and a touchdown (the first of his career), with the score going to tight end Nick O'Leary for seven yards. It'd be a surprise if the Bills benched Taylor in favor of the rookie, but it's something to watch—and it's good to see Peterman play well and get his first career touchdown out of the way quickly.

Nathan Peterman | Bears QB

Bills HC Sean McDermott is confident in rookie Nathan Peterman.

Tyrod Taylor is still in concussion protocol and McDermott said the rookie quarterback is "ready" to start if needed. McDermott added, "we're confident in Nathan." Ideally, Taylor would be ready for Week 1, but Peterman came out of a pro style offense at Pitt and looked good this preseason. He won't be a good fantasy option if he starts, but Peterman should play well if he does have to play on Sunday against the Jets.

Nathan Peterman | Bears QB

Nathan Peterman struggles in Bills' third preseason game.

Peterman came in early for a concussed Tyrod Taylor, and he went 11/23 for just 93 yards against Baltimore's first-team defense. The Ravens have an elite defense and Buffalo is lacking playmakers on offense, but it still wasn't a promising performance from the rookie. Peterman should get the start next week against Detroit with the starters expected to rest.

Nathan Peterman | Bears QB

Nathan Peterman was 10/20 for 167 yards in Thursday night's preseason game.

Peterman also rushed twice for 17 yards. The Bills' fifth-round pick came in behind Tyrod Taylor, and he seems to have a clear edge on T.J. Yates for backup duties. Peterman made some pinpoint throws, but he's completing just over 50% of his throws through two games. Taylor is locked in as the starter, but Peterman might make starts in 2017 if Buffalo falls out of contention.

Nathan Peterman | Bears QB

Nathan Peterman will play with the second-team in Thursday's preseason game.

The Bills rookie quarterback really impressed in the opening preseason game against the Vikings last week, and he's been elevated to the backup quarterback job. Look for him to get a good amount of playing time on Thursday against the Eagles. If Buffalo's season goes south, don't be surprised if the fifth-round pick Peterman—who was seen a a pro-ready quarterback—makes some starts for the team this season.

Nathan Peterman | Bears QB

Nathan Peterman performs in first NFL preseason game.

The fifth-round pick out of Pitt was 13/25 for 112 yards and a touchdown, along with four carries for 22 yards. On his opening drive, Peterman was 6/8 for 44 yards and a touchdown, with 22 yards rushing. He did also lose a fumble. T.J. Yates worked as the number two behind Tyrod Taylor, but Peterman might be able to unseat him for that role.

Nathan Peterman | Bears QB

The Bills select Pittsburgh QB Nathan Peterman with the 171st pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Peterman was a hot name leading up to the draft, and some thought he might even be a late first-round pick. That obviously didn't happen, and the Bills get a guy who played in a pro-style system last year at Pitt in the 5th round. The new coaching staff might favor Peterman over incumbent backup Cardale Jones, as the two are complete opposites; Peterman throws with good anticipation and is more polished, but Jones has unteachable tools, including a rocket arm.
