Darrius Heyward-Bey led the Raiders in receiving against Jacksonville. We break down the fantasy implications.
Darrius Heyward-Bey finished Week 7 with four receptions for 85 yards against the Jaguars. He was targeted seven times by Carson Palmer, third-most among the Raiders receivers.
Heyward-Bey hadn't recorded a catch since Week 3 against the Steelers after suffering a concussion from a brutal hit to the helmet. He is clearly back to making an impact in the Raiders offense.
Fantasy Impact: A 59-yard catch to open up the first drive for the Raiders really accounted for the majority of DHB's work. Brandon Myers and Denarius Moore saw more targets throughout the game, but Heyward-Bey remains a top weapon for Palmer.
Unless the Raiders offense begins to catch fire, Heyward-Bey can't be trusted to put up huge numbers every week. He'll have a decent matchup, though, next week against the Chiefs.
