Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor was largely considered a joke when he was named starter before the season, but he's done a fine job at the position and even provided some fantasy value. In six games, Pryor has completed 64.5 percent of his passes for 1,061 yards, five touchdowns, five interceptions and 7.7 yards per attempt. He has also proven himself to be a huge running threat, racking up 285 yards on 44 rushing attempts.
Unfortunately, Pryor came down to earth against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 6, throwing three interceptions and getting sacked 10 times. He had a bye in Week 7 and will be facing the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday.
Fantasy impact: Pryor had been a pretty reliable QB2 before the Chiefs game, but that performance was bad enough to give fantasy owners pause. I expect him to bounce back soon, but it might not happen this week. The Steelers defense is still a tough fantasy matchup, ranking fourth in the league in passing yards allowed. Pryor gets much better matchups against the Eagles and Giants over the following two weeks. He remains a sneaky buy-low candidate for now.
