Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor left Sunday's game in the fourth quarter with a knee injury. All early signs indicate Pryor will return in Week 10. Despite leaving the game early on Sunday, he was able to piece together a serviceable fantasy performance for owners in Week 9. Pryor threw for 288 yards and two interceptions. His fantasy value stayed afloat thanks to his 94 rushing yards on ten attempts. Pryor made several questionable decisions in the passing game as he failed to find the end zone. Pryor was expected to put up a better performance against the NFL's 23rd-ranked defense.
Fantasy impact: Owners were likely expecting a bigger performance from Pryor. Heading into Week 9, the Philadelphia Eagles had given up the 10th-most fantasy points to quarterbacks. However, Pryor likely didn't cost fantasy owners their week. Pryor still put up just under 20 fantasy points in most formats. The knee injury is a minor concern and will be worth monitoring throughout the week, but all indications are that Pryor was held out of Sunday's game as a precaution. Pryor has a juicy matchup against the New York Giants in Week 10.
