Rod Streater, WR, Raiders
2014 Outlook: Sleeper (undervalued)Last updated on Jul-10-2014 by Larry Gold
If history is any indication, Rod Streater fits the bill of a receiver that can see a significant uptick in production. The Temple alum comes into his third year (often a breakout year for receivers) poised to continue the upward trend in production seen in his first two years. Streater quietly had 100 targets in 2013 and comfortably made plays over the middle; a role that very few young receivers adapt to. The Raiders' receiver began to be featured over the last two months of the season, which bodes well for this year. With James Jones joining the team to stretch the field, there should be more room in the middle for Streater to operate. Working against Streater is the uncertainty at QB as he will need to develop chemistry with Matt Schaub (or Derek Carr should he win the job at some point). Either way, this big target is being overlooked in fantasy drafts (WR71 in high stakes drafts) and could be a sneaky high volume play as a guy who can come off your bench when the matchup fits.
