Raiders WR Jacoby Ford is ruled out for Week 1 against the Chargers. We break down the fantasy implications.

Oakland Raiders WR Jacoby Ford (foot) has been ruled out for Week 1 against the San Diego Chargers. Ford missed both practices on Friday and Saturday after full participation Wednesday, and he's been slow to recover, only being cleared to run this week. Rookie Rod Streater is expected to take his place in Monday night's game.

Fantasy Impact: Bad news for people who drafted Ford in the late rounds, great news for people who have been scouting Streater on the waiver wire. He's due to play the slot this week, and with Denarius Moore still a question mark, could have a breakout performance in front of ESPN cameras.
