Brandon Myers concussion: Fantasy status optimistic after practicing Wednesday

Rob Carr

Brandon Myers was back in practice Wednesday for the Raiders just three days after suffering a concussion against the Baltimore Ravens. We break down the fantasy implications.

Brandon Myers was back in practice for the Oakland Raiders on Wednesday just three days after suffering a concussion against the Baltimore Ravens, according to Steve Corkran of the Contra Costa Times. Myers underwent concussion testing Monday.

There is still no official word on Myers' status for Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints. His participation in practice Wednesday bodes well for his prospects, however.

Fantasy Impact: You will want to keep a close eye on injury reports this week, but so far so good for those who own Myers in their fantasy leagues. There is a lot to like about his matchup this week if he is able to suit up against the Saints. Carson Palmer will be throwing the ball a lot if the Raiders find themselves down quickly against a surging Saints offense. Myers leads the Raiders with 44 receptions on the season, adding 499 yards and two touchdowns on the year.
