Terrelle Pryor to remain Raiders starter, a possible fantasy option?

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Raiders have confirmed that Terrelle Pryor will remain the starting quarterback for the future. We break down the fantasy implications.

Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen says that quarterback Terrelle Pryor will remain the starting quarterback for next week's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Pryor won the Week 1 job after outplaying Matt Flynn in the preseason. He rewarded Allen's decision with a valiant effort against the Indianapolis Colts, setting a franchise record for most rushing yards by a quarterback. The Raiders lost, 21-17, but Pryor kept them competitive in what was expected to be blowout.

Fantasy impact: Pryor is still a raw passer, but his athletic ability should be enough to pad the stats for Oakland this season. He's not an every-week fantasy player, but if he keeps up his performance from Sunday the Raiders could surprise a few teams. Pryor is worth considering as a QB2 when the Raiders play the Jaguars this season. Jacksonville's defense is still a trainwreck and Pryor could have his best performance of the season here.
