Brandon Myers expected to play after passing concussion testing: Fantasy implications

Rob Carr

Brandon Myers has passed all concussion testing, and is clear to play in Sunday's game between the Raiders and the Saints. We break down the fantasy implications.

Brandon Myers has passed all concussion testing, and is clear to play Sunday when the Oakland Raiders take on the New Orleans Saints, the Contra Costa Times reports. Myers appeared to suffer a concussion during last week's loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

Myers was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, but is likely to take on a larger role as the week progresses. All signs point to the tight end suiting up this weekend.

Fantasy Impact: The Raiders have been passing the ball around a lot in recent weeks, thanks to large deficits created by a defense that is in the process of losing its wheels. Myers has been a big beneficiary, catching at least five passes in four of his last five outings.

With a potential shootout on tap against the Saints, Myers should be considered a solid second-tier starter in standard fantasy leagues. Just a few tight ends (Rob Gronkowski, Jimmy Graham, etc.) can definitively claim to be better fantasy options.
