Efficiency trumps volume at the quarterback position, and quarterbacks have been uber-efficient against Oakland in this young season. Through two games, the Raiders have allowed a 9.2 percent touchdown rate (touchdown per pass attempt) through the air and 0.77 fantasy points per attempt, second-worst in the league in both categories.
