Terrelle Pryor Fantasy News
Sunday, September 29, 2013, 10:02pm
Raiders HC Dennis Allen said team wanted to exercise extreme caution with QB Terrelle Pryor, so held him out. Feels good about him playing next week.
Pryor was set to start but reports said he started to feel symptoms again leading up to the game so that team went with backup Matt Flynn, who struggled in a loss to Washington.

Matt Flynn will get the start in a good matchup with the Redskins. He's a risky start.

Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor (concussion, questionable) took limited practice reps again Friday and is questionable for Week 4. Adam Schefter reported that Pryor is unlikely to play against the Redskins, though HC Dennis Allen said on Friday that Pryor just has to pass one more test on Saturday to play, so hopefully we'll have more clarity tomorrow. Matt Flynn would be a high-risk Sneaky Start against a very shaky Redskins pass defense. If he can play, Pryor would be a top 12 QB given the matchup.
Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor, who suffered a concussion Monday night, is unlikely to play Sunday vs. Washington, per sources.
Matt Flynn is likely to get the start. He has a great matchup against the Redskins, but would be a risky play as a QB2-type.

Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor (concussion) returned to limited practice reps Thursday after missing Wednesday practice. Adam Schefter is reporting that Pryor is unlikely to play against the Redskins. Matt Flynn would be a Sneaky Start against a very shaky pass defense.

Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor (concussion) did not practice Wednesday. Pryor has not yet been cleared for practice, but he has been cleared for physical activity. It's a good sign that he'll be out there against the Redskins on Sunday. He'd be a top 12 QB given the matchup.
Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor left the game early after taking a big hit. It turns out that big hit resulted in a concussion. Pryor took a massive hit on a designed quarterback run as he was sandwiched by a pair of Broncos defenders. He stayed on the ground for a bit while the officials determined if the Raiders quarterback fumbled the ball.
Pryor later tweeted that he didn't remember taking the hit, which is not a good sign. But he added that he feels great. It's bad timing for the Raiders on a short week with Washington up next. Not to mention, he played pretty well in a tough matchup against the Broncos. Pryor will now have to pass NFL protocol before being able to go in Week 4. Matt Flynn is the backup and would get the start. Often associated with a weak arm, Flynn gets a pretty good matchup against the Skins at least, who have been torched by opposing defenses. He's at best a low-end QB2 option.

Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie spoke with seven Bay Area-based reporters at the team's headquarters in a half-hour roundtable chat and broached topics ranging from Terrelle Pryor to team expectations to pending free agents to the need for the Raiders to get the ball more to playmaking fullback Marcel Reece.
Reece is a productive gadget player but he only has three touches in two games. For a team that is going to have trouble moving the ball, the Raiders would be wise to utilize Reece more.
Raiders coach Dennis Allen said that Terrelle Pryor will start at quarterback Sunday against the Jaguars.
Pryor was one of just two 100-plus yard rushers on Sunday in Week 1 (the other was Shane Vereen). He's going to make his share of mistakes, but there's certainly upside with the rushing yardage and potential rushing TDs. He's not a QB1 option but it could get pretty tempting to plug him in a QB2 spot or use him as a backup, or even in certain matchups.
Terrelle Pryor, who The Chronicle reported is starting over Matt Flynn, has taken a lot more snaps with Denarius Moore, Rod Streater and Jacoby Ford the last couple of weeks. He already had a strong connection with Streater, a close friend who he worked out with all summer.
It's interesting to note that Pryor and Streater worked out all summer because that tends to have an impact in games. Passing yards will be hard to come by in this offense, but it sounds like Streater might be fantasy relevant in 2013.
The San Francisco Chronicle has learned Terrelle Pryor is starting at quarterback for Raiders Sunday, per couple of league sources.
Pryor ran ahead of Matt Flynn on Monday at practice, despite Pryor's struggles in the final preseason game. Pryor's ability to run makes him a better fantasy option than Flynn, but, inserting Pryor in your fantasy lineup to open the season isn't a good idea. Oakland plays at Indy in Week 1.

Oakland QB Terrelle Pryor has shown a knack for improvisation even if he's not always accurate. He's more equipped to play behind a brutal offensive line. He'll start the team's preseason finale while Matt Flynn sits out with a mysterious arm injury. It's Pryor's job to lose now.
Raiders are going to rest QB Matt Flynn with sore arm, HC Dennis Allen said.
Terrelle Pryor got the first team reps. Pryor has outplayed Flynn in preseason games and is starting to gain some fantasy momentum, so Flynn's sore arm comes at a bad time for him. It's looking more and more possible Pryor could end up with significant time at QB the way things are trending...

Raiders HC Dennis Allen said only that QB Terrelle Pryor will probably get some work with the first-teamers in practice this week. "That's a position we're still continuing to evaluate," Allen said. Pryor threw for a touchdown and ran for one Friday night, leading the Raiders to 20 straight points after they had fallen behind the Bears 27-0.
Starter Matt Flynn hasn't been impressive and Pryor continues to impress, scoring more points in the preseason. And, Allen hinted in a comment in the story he'd go with the QB that gives the team the best chance to score.
Raiders HC Dennis Allen on re-opening the QB competition between Matt Flynn and Terrelle Pryor: "I think obviously we have to look at it. I think when you look at it I don’t think Matt [Flynn] played well in this game. Obviously, I thought Terrelle [Pryor] came in and gave us a spark. I thought he played well in the game. I think that’s something that we have to go and look at it. I’m not going to make any decisions on anything, obviously, tonight. I want to get a chance to go back and look at the tape and see how things went. But it was obvious that Terrelle gave us a little bit of a spark tonight.”
Uh-oh, it appears that Flynn has flopped with his second team in as many years. Pryor won't have much fantasy value given the current state of the Oakland offense, but he's a player to monitor.
