Darrius Heyward-Bey is on track to return from concussion for the Raiders' Week 6 matchup against the Falcons after practicing again Wednesday. We break down the fantasy implications.
Darrius Heyward-Bey practiced once again for the Oakland Raiders on Wednesday, and appears to be on track to return in Week 6 to play the Atlanta Falcons following a Week 5 bye, according to Steve Corkran of the Contra Costa Times. Heyward-Bey sat out last week's game against the Denver Broncos after sustaining a concussion in Week 3 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Fantasy Impact: The Raiders are in desperate need of an offensive spark, and Heyward-Bey can certainly provide one. Still, he has yet to prove he is a consistently great fantasy option, catching four touchdown passes and falling just short of 1,000 yards receiving last year. As long as Denarius Moore is locked in as the team's top wideout and the Raiders' offense is struggling, DHB is hard to recommend as more than a potential WR3 or Flex option in standard leagues.
