Adam Schefter, Twitter - [Full Article]

Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor, who suffered a concussion Monday night, is unlikely to play Sunday vs. Washington, per sources.

Fantasy Impact:

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.

Terrelle Pryor suffers concussion
Tuesday, September 24, 2013, 10:01am

CBS Sports - [Full Article]

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.

Fantasy Impact:

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.

Fantasy Impact:

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 name Terrelle Pryor starter Week 2

Raiders coach Dennis Allen said that Terrelle Pryor will start at quarterback Sunday against the Jaguars.

Fantasy Impact:

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.

Rod Streater may be the Raiders' WR1

San Francisco Chronicle - [Full Article]

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.

Fantasy Impact:

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.

Beat: Terrelle Pryor will start for Raiders

The San Francisco Chronicle has learned Terrelle Pryor is starting at quarterback for Raiders Sunday, per couple of league sources.

Fantasy Impact:

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.

NFL.com - [Full Article]

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 plan to rest Matt Flynn
Sunday, August 25, 2013, 6:00pm

Vic Talfur on Twitter - [Full Article]

Raiders are going to rest QB Matt Flynn with sore arm, HC Dennis Allen said.

Fantasy Impact:

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...

San Francsico Chronicle - [Full Article]

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.

Fantasy Impact:

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 reset QB competition
Saturday, August 24, 2013, 9:56am

Oakland Raiders - [Full Article]

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.”

Fantasy Impact:

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.

CSN Bay Area - [Full Article]

Raiders rookie WR Brice Butler had a solid showing in the exhibition opener, but he needs to repeat that effort on Friday to continue his ascent up the depth chart. The seventh-round pick worked some with the first team during this week’s practice and seemed comfortable working in the slot.

He should get passes from Matt Flynn and Terrelle Pryor and must be consistent and sure-handed to gain their trust. A word of caution: While Butler made to spectacular grabs for 70 yards and a touchdown, he was also targeted three other times without a catch. Butler said he wasn’t happy with his entire performance, and vowed to improve on it in New Orleans.

Matt Flynn "solidifying" starting QB role
Wednesday, July 31, 2013, 1:10pm

Sacramento Bee - [Full Article]

QB Matt Flynn is solidifying his role as starting quarterback for the Raiders one year after losing that same job in training camp with the Seattle Seahawks.

Flynn entered camp with the inside track over Terrelle Pryor and rookie Tyler Wilson to replace Carson Palmer in Oakland and has done nothing in the first week to change that equation.

Flynn has been the most impressive of the three quarterbacks so far in training camp with the most accurate arm, a good grasp of the offense and strong leadership on the field.

Fantasy Impact:

Flynn has started two games in his career. In 2010, he filled in for an injured Aaron Rodgers in a tough 31-27 loss against the Patriots in Week 15, throwing for 251 yards, three TDs and an interception. In 2011, with Rodgers resting in Week 17, Flynn torched the Lions for 480 yards and six TDs (with one interception). His stock took a dive after he couldn't beat out rookie Russell Wilson, but he was dealing with an elbow injury and Wilson turned out to be pretty good. The Raiders have not been a favorable situation for QBs in recent years, but Carson Palmer was 8th in the league in pass attempts in 2012, so if Flynn finds himself in garbage time as often, he should put up decent fantasy stats. He doesn't have great arm strength, but has shown good accuracy and anticipation on his throws.
