Darrius Heyward-Bey returned to practice Monday for the Oakland Raiders. We break down the fantasy implications.

Darrius Heyward-Bey returned to practice Monday for the Oakland Raiders, according to the team's official Twitter feed. Heyward-Bey suffered a concussion in Week 3 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, and was forced to sit out Week 4 against the Denver Broncos. There is no word yet on his status for Week 6 against the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Impact: The Raiders are on a bye this week, giving Heyward-Bey some much-needed time to recover from what looked like a very serious injury against the Steelers. Once he returns, he will be the team's No. 2 wide receiver behind Denarius Moore. DHB doesn't have much value as a weekly starter in standard leagues. In a pinch he can fill in for a player on a bye.
