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.
