Terrelle Pryor is expected to play most of the second half tonight. We break down the fantasy implications.

Oakland Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor is expected to play nearly the entire second half of tonight's game against the Dallas Cowboys. A former 3rd-round supplemental pick, Pryor took a grand total of one snap in 2011 and is currently stuck at #3 on the depth chart, behind Matt Leinart.

Analysis: Nothing to see here, fantasy players. Pryor remains a massive project, and isn't threatening to take the starting job anytime soon. The only realistic scenario here is possibly beating out Leinart for the primary backup position. Giving him this much playing time smacks of desperation on the Raiders' part to justify the 3rd-rounder they spent on him. Still, tonight should be a fun game to follow, if for no other reason than to see him reenact his more impressive Ohio State performances against 3rd-string scrubs.
