Brandon Myers injury update: Probable status for rising fantasy star on Thursday

Kelley L Cox-US PRESSWIRE

How will the Raiders tight end followup his career performance in Week 13? We break down the fantasy implications.

Raiders tight end Brandon Myers (shoulder) was upgraded to full practice on Wednesday and is probable to start against the Broncos on Thursday night. Myers is coming off of a 14-catch, 130-yard performance in a loss to the Browns on Sunday.

Coming into this season, Myers had 250 yards in three years after being a sixth round pick in 2009. He's become a favorite target of Carson Palmer and has totaled 69 catches for 721 yards and four touchdowns on the season.

Fantasy Take: Myers has been a sneaky play all season but blew up the radar with his huge game against the Browns. However, Thursday's are always a tricky proposition with players going on short rest. Myers should be rated as a low-end TE1 against a tough Broncos defense but he's become hard to bench this year, especially with some underwhelming performances and injuries from the league's top tight ends going into the year.
