Juron Criner is probable. We break down the fantasy implications.

Juron Criner (ankle) practiced all week and is probable to play against the Steelers.

Analysis: Rod Streater coming on strong in the preseason has pushed himself to three on the depth chart. Criner is still almost fantasy relevant with Jacoby Ford (foot) going on IR last week, though. Criner can stretch the field and might be a better option in two-wide sets, but the consensus is that Criner might need two injuries to the current WR corps of Oakland to be on the radar in standard leagues. Denarius Moore and Darrius Heyward-Bey are low-end WR2 or flexes for most owners this week.
