Brandon Myers upgraded to full practice, remains solid fantasy sleeper

Rob Carr

Brandon Myers got over his concussion quickly and had a full practice on Thursday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Oakland Raiders TE Brandon Myers (concusion, shoulder) was upgraded to a full practice on Thursday, reports Adam Caplan. Myers suffered a concussion in Week 10 against the Ravens, but got a limited practice in Wednesday and was upgraded to full participation Thursday, suggesting he will be just fine for Week 11 against the New Orleans Saints.

Myers has quietly emerged as a quality TE, hauling in 44 catches for 499 yards and two TDs through nine games.

Fantasy Impact: Myers has a history with concussions, so it's not a given he will suit up Sunday. However, the midweek upgrade is a promising sign and he should feast on the Saints' historically awful defense. Fantasy owners can pencil him in as a TE1 this week.
