Darrius Heyward-Bey injury update: questionable and should not be starting in fantasy

Kirby Lee-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Darrius Heyward-Bey is listed as questionable for Week 4 against the Broncos. We break down the fantasy implications.

Oakland Raiders WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (concussion, neck) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos. Despite the "50-50" designation, there's no chance Heyward-Bey will play after getting carted off the field in a scary collision with Steeelers S Ryan Mundy. He has nine catches for 98 yards and one touchdown on the season.

Fantasy Impact: There's still no timetable on Heyward-Bey's return, so fantasy owners shouldn't be counting on him to come back any time soon. He's a borderline WR2 in the best of times. With DHB out, Denarius Moore will move up to Oakland's No. 1 WR spot, with the No. 2 spot going to either Derek Hagan or Rod Streater. Neither guy is a fantasy option.
