Raiders Fantasy News

Friday, September 27, 2013, 7:19pm

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.

Broncos WR Eric Decker (shoulder) took full practice reps again Thursday. Decker is coming off of a big game against the Raiders on Monday night. Through three games, he is tied for #20 in targets with 9.3 per game, so workload hasn't been a problem.

Terrelle Pryor suffers concussion

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 tight end David Ausberry was making progress with his injured shoulder the last time we saw him catching passes on the side at practice, but the Raiders pulled the plug Monday. They placed him on injured reserve and promoted guard Lamar Mady from the practice squad.

It’s not known whether Ausberry had a setback or the Raiders just decided to go forward.

Fantasy Impact:

The team is moving on with TEs Jeron Mastrud, Mychal Rivera and Nick Kasa.
The rookie Rivera has 5 catches for 58 yards, and Mastrud, who plays for his blocking, has one for 41 yards.
