Terrelle Pryor getting first-team reps for weak Raiders fantasy offense

In the age of the read-option offense, Pryor could be a target in fantasy leagues. Obviously, that was sarcasm. - Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports

The Raiders are moving closer to naming Terrelle Pryor as their Week 1 starter. We break down the fantasy implications.

Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor was getting first-team reps with the Raiders offense on Monday. He's had the inside track as the starter over Matt Flynn since Week 3 of the preseason.

He completed just 46.7 percent of his 30 passes last season and he's done nothing this preseason to solidify the prospects of him being a starting-caliber quarterback. Matt Flynn has been sacked a bunch and lacked poise in the pocket. Head coach Dennis Allen said he's decided on his quarterback, but he won't reveal the info at this time.

Fantasy impact: The Raiders don't have any strength on offense. Their running back can't stay healthy, their offensive line is in shambles with Jared Veldheer banged up, and they have a bunch of question marks at receiver. Pryor may be a running quarterback and has size, but he's going to go through too many growing pains to be counted upon in fantasy leagues. What's more, besides Darren McFadden, there shouldn't be any player worth drafting in 10-team leagues.
