Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Raiders receiver Martavis Bryant missed a second day of practice with “really bad migraines,” Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports.

The condition has plagued Bryant for years, per Tafur.

Related players: Amari Cooper, Jordy Nelson

Fantasy Impact:

The story went on to say coach Jon Gruden confirmed Monday that Bryant missed that day’s practice with “a headache.” Bryant made one catch for 18 yards on four targets in the Raiders’ preseason opener. He is on the second team behind Cooper and Nelson.

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.
