Colts RB Ahmad Bradshaw (foot, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 1. Bradshaw is expected to play, but he may not be the Colts' RB1 just yet. Proceed with caution. He's at best a flex play in a great matchup with the Raiders.

Colts WR Reggie Wayne (not injury related) missed practice Friday. We wouldn't worry about Wayne missing practice, but check the news on Saturday just to be sure. He's a great start against a very sketchy Raiders' pass defense.

Raiders TE David Ausberry (shoulder, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 1.

Raiders K Sebastian Janikowski (right calf, probable) took limited practice reps again Friday and is probable for Week 1. Janikowski often finds himself on the injury report, but usually kicks on Sundays. He should be fine for Week 1, though he's not a recommended start given the Raiders' offensive woes. Field goal attempts probably won't be consistent this season.

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.

Field goal attempts probably won't be consistent this season.

Inside Bay Area - [Full Article]

Indianapolis wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey, who signed a one-year, $3 million contract after being released by the Raiders to avoid paying a $7.7 million salary, got rave reviews from Pagano and quarterback Andrew Luck.
"He's been outstanding from the first day he walked in the building until this morning's walk-through," Pagano said. "He's been unbelievable. He's an extremely hard worker who did not miss a day of our offseason program.

"I'd be shocked if he doesn't have an outstanding season."

Said Luck on a conference call: "He's a really awesome teammate. A tireless worker. It's been very impressive. I think he's going to do great things for us this season."

Fantasy Impact:

It looks like the Colts will follow through with their plan to start Heyward-Bey over T.Y. Hilton thanks to DHB's versatility as a blocker in the running game. Hilton should see the field plenty, but limited snaps mean limited upside.
