Terrelle Pryor falls just short of 300 yards in loss to Broncos, but pleases fantasy owners with a big week

Doug Pensinger

The Raiders young signal caller flashed potential once again, but the Raiders fell short to their AFC West rivals. We break down the fantasy implications.

Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor completed 19-of-28 passes for 281 yards and a touchdown, and rushed for 36 yards in the team's 37-21 loss to the Broncos on Monday night.

It was a mixed night for Pryor, who showcased his speed and big arm, but was often erratic and hurt by dropped passes from his receivers. His highlight of the evening was a completion on a comeback route to Denarius Moore, and poor tackling allowed the speedy receiver to break free and scamper into the end zone for a 73-yard touchdown.

Pryor also exited a few snaps after taking a hard hit near the goal line, but did not appear to be seriously harmed. Matt Flynn relieved Pryor of his duties just before the two-minute warning in a blowout game.

Fantasy Spin: The pieces are in place for Pryor to put-up a sneaky productive season. His dual-threat nature as well as playing on a team that will be behind for most of the season will only help him pile-up precious garbage time stats, as evidenced by his performance in Denver on Monday night. His fantasy total flirted with the robust 20-point plateau, and with a juicy matchup versus the Redskins in Week Four, don't be surprised if he surpasses it once again.
