Terrelle Pryor is waiting for an opportunity to showcase his ability in the NFL, but after two seasons is 1-of-2 in passing for five yards. Matt Leinart has had opportunities since he came into the league in 2006 and has not been able to do anything with them, and has started two games since 2007. They are now competing for snaps in the Raiders season finale against the San Diego Chargers this weekend.
Arizona Cardinals, you have some competition for QB disasters this week!
Pryor and Leinart split first-team reps on Wednesday. With Carson Palmer (ribs/chest) out for the final game of the season, it comes down to these two. Leinart was 16-of-32 for only 115 yards, 0 TD and 1 INT in relief of Palmer on Sunday. Pryor was 1-of-1 for 5 yards.
Fantasy Take: Neither should be expected to do much of anything this weekend. Pryor was a gamble in the supplemental draft. Leinart has been nothing short of awful in the last two games that he has played significant time in, dating back to his one start for the Texans last season when he barely gained more than 4 yards per attempt on 13 passes before being lost for the year due to injury.
There is a reason that Oakland has been so bad for the last decade.
