Terrelle Pryor edges Steelers, runs away with fantasy points

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

The Raiders quarterback used his legs to beat a good Steelers defense. We break down the fantasy implications.

Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor completed 10 passes for 88 yards and threw two interceptions in a 21-18 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. He also had 106 yards rushing on nine attempts.

Fantasy impact: Pryor got the bulk of his rushing yards on a monster 93-yard run on the team's first play from scrimmage. Pryor faked handing the ball off in the backfield and had a wide open running lane all the way to the end zone, flying past the Steelers linebackers and cornerbacks at top speed.

After that point, the Steelers were pretty much able to keep Pryor in check as he ran for only 13 yards in the rest of the game. Fortunately for Pryor, his running back Darren McFadden carried the load on the ground the rest of the way.

Pryor seemed to have trouble connecting with his favorite target Denarius Moore as the Steelers secondary had him blanketed throughout the game. Fantasy owners can breathe a sigh of relief thanks to that monster run though, as Pryor's legs allowed him to post solid numbers anyway.
