Dalton/Pryor Still Available

Andy Dalton and Terrelle Pryor had monster games in week eight and both can still be had in the majority of fantasy leagues across the country.

Analysis: Andy Dalton is playing out of his mind right now. He’s thrown for over 1,000 passing yards in his last three games. He has 11 touchdowns and 2 interceptions in that three game span. Last week we mentioned that it was the “last call” on Andy Dalton- he was available in 20-75% of leagues, now he’s only available in 5-57% of leagues. Even if you only pick him up to be a QB2 on your squad he is a must own.

Terrelle Pryor is a completely different animal. He’s rushed for over 200 yards in his last four games and has 5 total touchdowns in that span. He only recorded a 25.7 passer rating against the Steelers in week eight but who cares when he continues to put up fantasy points on the ground. Up next for Pryor is the Eagles at home in week nine. He’s rushed for 50 plus yards in four of his six games this year, expect another one against Philly. Pryor is available in 40-75% of fantasy leagues.

Stock Rising- Pryor

Terrelle Pryor threw for 217 yards and rushed for 112 as he put together a solid fantasy performance in week one against the Colts.

Analysis: Pryor may not ever make it as a successful quarterback in the NFL but he does have a future as a deadly fantasy threat for the time being. On Sunday afternoon Pryor completed 19 of 29 passes with one passing touchdown and two picks. He added a ridiculous 112 rushing yards which will be his fantasy calling card all year long. From a fantasy perspective we can accept the interceptions and some sacks if he can consistently rush for 70 plus yards and throw for another 200.

At the moment Terrelle Pryor is available in 85-95% of fantasy leagues. He may not be stable enough to be trusted as an every week fantasy starter but he can add some depth at little to no cost. The risk of picking up Pryor far outweighs the rewards of a guy like Alex Smith.

After his solid performance on the road Pryor’s week two matchup is with the Jags at home. Oh, the possibilities.
