Terrelle Pryor (QB, OAK) - Waiver Wire Pickups

David Paul - RotoBaller

Baller Move:  Add in All Leagues

Analysis: Pryor comes off his BYE week facing a rejuvenated Steelers team which just held the Baltimore Ravens to fewer than 300 total yards.  Even though Pryor stumbled in Week Six against the stellar Kansas City defense, he was able to sneak out a decent performance thanks to his 56 rushing yards, which offset his three INT.  Don’t overreact to one bad performance, especially considering that Pryor can throw from 200 to 250 yards and complement his passing game with 50+ rushing yards.  His legs are what set him apart from other quarterback options.  Outside of the Chiefs loss where he had 34 pass attempts, Pryor averaged 26 attempts per game, and we imagine the Raiders will stick with a conservative gameplan and not ask too much from him.  Pryor is underowned, and with Indianapolis and San Diego on bye, he is a commendable fill-in for Luck or Rivers.  He should also be stashed on any team with bench space, as he’s already on the QB1 bubble with upside for more.
