NFL fantasy football: Terrelle Pryor to battle for starting job

Pryor wants to push Flynn: Last season, Matt Flynn went to Seattle expecting to be the starter. Then Russell Wilson came along and pushed him out of a job. Now Flynn is in Oakland, where he once again is penciled in as the No. 1 option. Terrelle Pryor hopes history repeats itself. The young signal-caller says he plans to compete for Oakland’s starting job. Despite the huge gap in paycheck size, Flynn has only one more career start than Pryor. It would seem like the younger QB is behind the 8-ball in this competition, but there is still a long way to go.

Redman re-signs in Pittsburgh: Running back Isaac Redman is back with the Steelers after signing his tender offer. That puts him back in a situation to compete for touches with Jonathan Dwyer. Last season, Dwyer got the bulk of the work, but Redman wasn’t far behind. There’s little to suggest that it won’t be a near 50-50 split between the two now that Rashard Mendenhall has joined the Cardinals. That would make both of them No. 3 fantasy options as best.

Cameron sees opportunity: Cleveland Browns tight end Jordan Cameron is excited about the chance to play for coaches Rob Chudzinski and Norv Turner — two men who recognize the value of the tight end position. In two seasons, Cameron has caught just 26 passes (20 of them in 2012) with one touchdown. He’s still a far cry from being elite, something Chudzinski acknowledges, but it will be interesting to see how the staff uses him this season and beyond. Keep him on your radar as a deep sleeper.
