Week 9: Start 'Em
There is nothing like starting off the day with a NFL record breaking 93 yard touchdown run. Well, that's how Terrelle Pryor started his day vs. the Steelers in week eight. He didn't do much the rest of the game, but luckily the Raiders were in the lead from Pryor's opening play, so they never had to look back. This week Pryor faces an easier test as the Raiders are home to face the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles are giving up the second most total yards in the NFL at a rate of 401.8 yards per game and that will bode well for Pryor. Pryor offers the dual running and passing threat, giving him more opportunity to score fantasy points. With all the quarterbacks on bye and injured, Pryor makes for a very good start in week 9.
Playing for the Vikings and being part of their offense hasn't been the best place to be. The Vikings are one and six and have already started three different quarterbacks this season. Who will be throwing the passes is anyone's guess, but the Vikings will be losing and will be throwing and one guy we know will be catching passes is Kyle Rudolph. While his stats aren't anything special, he does lead the Vikings in receptions (28) and is tied for the lead in TD receptions (two). This week Rudolph takes on a Cowboys defense that is giving up an NFL league high 315 passing yards per game. If you need a start at tight end this week, look no further than Kyle Rudolph.
