Pryor exited the Raiders' Week 9 matchup versus the Eagles, but it was later revealed that coaches held him out only as a precaution. The Raiders were already losing by an insurmountable deficit and did not want to risk further damaging their starting signal caller. The fact that Pryor has practiced fully since Wednesday suggests those sentiments to be true.
Fantasy Spin: Even if Pryor is not the most proficient passer in the league, his dual-threat nature and penchant for big plays still gives him enough of an upside to start across fantasy leagues of all formats. With Tom Brady on a bye and Aaron Rodgers out with an injury, fantasy owners in need of a quarterback could strike fantasy gold with Pryor, who has the running ability and big-play receivers necessary to cash-in on a few deep opportunities. Versus a middling Giants defense, Pryor makes for a solid spot-starter for owners who have been bitten by the injury bug.
