Raiders to sign WR Martavis Bryant

Tuesday, September 11, 2018, 7:01pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

Receiver Martavis Bryant is signing a one-year deal with the Oakland Raiders, a source told ESPN's Dan Graziano.

The Raiders previously released Bryant on roster cutdown day because they were concerned about a possible league-imposed suspension and needed the roster spot.

A source told Graziano that Bryant and the Raiders discussed him potentially re-signing at the time of his release, and that he is still in "wait and see mode" with regard to a potential suspension.

Fantasy Impact:

ESPN reported earlier this month that Bryant violated the league's drug policy at some point during the offseason, and the NFL was reviewing the matter.

Scouting Report

Fantasy Upside

If healthy and eligible, Bryant could push for targets on the outside with only Jordy Nelson to beat out and Amari Cooper reportedly moving more into the slot.

Fantasy Downside

There is speculation that Bryant will face suspension. During training camp, the coaching staff has not mentioned him when talking about the offense. Buyer beware.

2018 Bottom Line

Bryant and the Raiders' receiving group could go a number of different ways this season, but he has the shadow of a suspension hanging over him. If we learn he won't be suspended, he's a worthy flier to take a chance on in the double-digit rounds. Otherwise, you are risking getting zero from that pick.
