Remember when Tim Tebow was starting games for the Broncos in 2011? Of course you do, because he was a weekly top-12 fantasy quarterback. During that 11-game span, Tebow averaged 150.0 passing yards, 56.6 rushing yards, threw 11 touchdowns and ran for five more. We can draw some similarities in the game of Terrelle Pryor, a 6’6/233 monster with legit 4.4 speed and the agility of a running back. In Pryor’s lone NFL start (2012 Week 17 at San Diego), he went 13-of-28 for 150 yards with two touchdowns and one interception, while adding nine carries for 49 yards with a touchdown – good for 22.9 fantasy points. Although the Raiders haven’t officially named their starter yet for Sunday’s game against the Colts, it's going to be Pryor instead of the noodle-armed Matt Flynn. Pryor is going to rack up garbage-time stats when the league’s worst team is in “comeback” mode. On 81 preseason snaps this year, he rushed 14 times for 131 yards and scored once. Expect 60 snaps a week for Pryor starting this week against the Colts.
Recommendation: Should be owned in standard 12-team leagues.
