Raiders may use Terrelle Pryor down the stretch: Fantasy implications

Otto Greule Jr

The Raiders are currently discussing the possibility of starting Terrelle Pryor with the playoffs out of reach. We break down the fantasy implications.

Could Oakland Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor see the first meaningful action of his NFL career? It's possible. According to Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle, the team has "discussed" using Pryor down the stretch. The Raiders are now officially eliminated from playoff contention, so the rest of the season should be dedicated to seeing who will contribute in 2013.

Pryor has yet to be active for a single game since being taken in the 2011 Supplemental Draft.

Fantasy Impact: This news should only interest Carson Palmer owners. Palmer has racked up nice fantasy numbers in garbage time, but he's just a stopgap while the Raiders try to figure out their QB of the future and has no long-term value with the team.

It's just speculation at the moment, but the team likes Pryor's raw talent and it's not out of the question to see him get some looks in a lost season. Keeper/Dynasty league players may want to monitor this situation.
