The Oakland Raiders will face off against the struggling Houston Texans on Sunday, but they will have to move forward without quarterback Terrelle Pryor. Pryor has been ruled out for the game. Despite practicing on Friday, and being listed as questionable, he will not play Sunday. He is struggling with a sprained MCL injury and is not guaranteed to be active in week 12 either at this point.
Fantasy owners that own any offensive player on the Raiders squad should adjust their rosters accordingly. There was doubt about Pryor playing this week, but it’s now been confirmed that he will sit this week and undrafted rookie Matthew McGloin will start instead after taking the majority of the reps this week. If you own Pryor on your roster and were going to start him this week, you are likely not in the mix to reach the playoffs in your league. Avoid McCloin at all costs and hit the waiver wire instead.
