Rod Streater is the Raiders' new No. 3 WR with Jacoby Ford done for the year. We break down the fantasy implications.

Oakland Raiders WR Rod Streater had an up-and-down debut last week, but he's still on track to become one of the better rookie receivers this year. With the latest news that Jacoby Ford is heading to IR with Lisfranc surgery, Streater is now the Raiders' No. 3 WR. He started in place of Denarius Moore in Week 1, catching four of 10 passes for 27 yards and a touchdown.

Fantasy Impact: It wasn't a perfect day for Streater - he had a fumble on his first catch, and the TD came in garbage time with a soft SD defense, but it was a nice day for the fast-rising UDFA. Moore is coming back this week, so Streater will shift to the slot position, where he should have another solid outing against the Miami Dolphins and their vulnerable defense. If he's still sitting on your waiver wire, now will be a good time to pick him up.
