This is on the heels of a preseason performance where Pryor's entry into the game provided the offense with a much-needed spark, and with the Raiders not on the cusp of competitiveness, Pryor's snaps during the season could prove valuable for a team that invested a third-round pick on him.

Fantasy Spin: Once again, it looks like Matt Flynn is on the verge of losing a starting spot with his second team in as many years. Pryor showed improvement from earlier in the summer, going 7-of-9 for 93 yards and a touchdown pass in the team's ever-important third preseason game.

Though Pryor's good showing came versus backups, the Raiders' decision to assess his performance versus starting-caliber competition would be a fair one to make. Pryor's dual-threat ability could make him fantasy relevant down the road, but in the meantime, it's best to wait and see before stashing him on the bench.
