OAK's Campbell targeting WR Heyward-Bey

San Jose Mercury News - [Full Article]

Darrius Heyward-Bey, is that really you?

Just a year ago WR Darrius Heyward-Bey was impossible to miss in the Raiders' offense, mostly because he missed everything thrown his way.

But at Wednesday's team workout, Heyward-Bey continued his emergence as a stunningly central figure in the Raiders' passing attack, and for only positive reasons.

At one point, QB Jason Campbell dropped back and threw in perfect rhythm to Heyward-Bey, who raced past two defenders on a post route, leapt and hauled in a 30-yard touchdown.

Later, Heyward-Bey shook off tight outside coverage by Walter McFadden, then made a quick move inside as Campbell heaved a prayer after avoiding a heavy rush.

Fantasy Impact: 

Heyward-Bey could have some fantasy value at WR if this connection pans out. WRs come and go on your roster all year, but he may be worth a late pick in your draft this summer.
