The Las Vegas Raiders were unable to get a Week 1 win over the Los Angeles Chargers. However, that does not mean they didn’t have a few players stand out.
One of those players is Maxx Crosby, who continued to torment the Chargers. According to Pro Football Focus, Crosby was the team’s highest-graded player in Week 1 after totaling seven pressures, five hits and two quarterback hurries. He was completely dominant despite not registering a sack.
So who else graded well for the Raiders in Week 1? Here are the five highest-graded players for the Raiders against the Chargers.
1. DE Maxx Crosby (92.9)
2. WR Davante Adams (88.3)
3. CB Nate Hobbs (83.8)
4. RG Dylan Parham (82.3)
5. DT Andrew Billings (78.0)

It’s not a surprise that Davante Adams graded so highly after totaling over 140 receiving yards and a touchdown. Seeing Nate Hobbs on the list isn’t shocking either as he played a fantastic game against Mike Williams and Keenan Allen.
It’s also nice to see rookie offensive lineman Dylan Parham on this list. He did not allow a single pressure on 35 total offensive snaps as he played right guard in this contest. He could wind up being a starter for the Raiders sooner rather than later.
