Raiders WR Rod Streater cleared for practice after concussion

Bay Area News confirmed Wednesday that Oakland WR Rob Streater has been cleared for contact following a concussion suffered from practice on Monday. He was active in warmups and drills on Wednesday but sat out of team contact drills. Streater is in a battle for WR2 duties with Greg Little and Denarius Moore, to play opposite former Packer WR James Jones.

Fantasy Analysis:

At 26 years old in heading into his third season, Streater hasn't done much with his time in the NFL. 2013 was his best year, putting up a 60/888/4 line. Even if he wins the starting job, he's not much more than a bye-week fill in and is entirely dependent on Matt Schaub having a good season.

Streater was more solid than most rookie receivers right out of college, and that was on an anemic Raiders offense. He then had 100 targets in year two as the team started to show some times...Now year 3. If Schaub bounces back a bit, Streater should really breakout. I fully expect him to be the #1 volume receiver on this team as James spreads the field.

He could be a potential breakout but I don't see it. It's been real tough for Oakland receivers to be fantasy relevant in past years. I don't think Schaub is the answer to that. Plus, last year when Schaub had Hopkins as his WR2, who is a much better WR than Streater imo, he still did not target him enough for a breakout. It'll be interesting to follow along.
