Rod Streater has 84 yards and a score for Raiders, boosting fantasy value

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Raiders receiver had his best game of the season Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Oakland Raiders wide receiver Rod Streater had his best game of 2013 Sunday. He and fellow wide receiver Denarius Moore each caught touchdowns to lead off the game's scoring en route to the Raiders' 28-23 victory over the Houston Texans.

Streater caught six passes for 84 yards and a score Sunday, adding a rush for eight yards. He had more yards two weeks ago against the Philadelphia Eagles, but Streater's 16-yard touchdown catch Sunday made that his top fantasy game of the season. Moore, meanwhile, had only two catches for 11 yards, but did manage a five-yard touchdown catch.

Fantasy impact: Streater led the team in targets from new starting quarterback Matt McGloin, who replaced the injured Terrelle Pryor. Moore had generally led the team in targets under Pryor.

It remains to be seen whether McGloin will hold onto the starting job after his strong performance in Sunday's game, and even then, it's impossible to tell yet whether it was chemistry between McGloin and Streater or merely the vagaries of football that led to the change in targets. But it does make Streater more interesting going forward. Neither receiving is an every-week play, but they both had flex potential.
