Keep an eye on Terrelle Pryor’s concussion

Pryor uncertain for Week 4: Through three weeks, one thing has become pretty certain — Terrelle Pryor is a fantasy QB to watch. The young signal-caller played well in Oakland’s 37-21 loss to the Denver Broncos. However he left Monday night’s game with a concussion and his status for this week’s game against Washington is up in the air. That could potentially be a big loss for fantasy owners if such a dynamic talent misses a game against such an awful defense. It hurts even more when you take into account that Aaron Rodgers and Cam Newton both have a bye this week. Pryor’s situation is certainly one to watch this week.

Bell could play vs Vikings: The Pittsburgh Steelers could get some much-needed help in their backfield this week with the reported return of rookie Le’Veon Bell. The first-year rusher is expecting to see his first action of the 2013 regular season in this week’s contest against the Minnesota Vikings, which will be played in London. So far this season, Steelers running backs have combined to score 15.10 fantasy points — or one-half point more than Danny Woodhead. To make the situation even better, the Vikings have allowed the fourth-most fantasy points to running backs. Consider Bell a nice flex option if you’re in need.

Burleson breaks arm: Detroit Lions wide receiver Nate Burleson will need surgery after suffering a broken arm in a single-car accident. It comes after Burleson posted a huge Week 3 stat line against Washington. However, now the onus falls upon Ryan Broyles to pick up the slack — at least in the short-term. The young wideout made his first appearance of the season last week and caught three passes for 34 yards. He could soon find himself with competition after reports surfaced that the Lions are exploring the possibility of trading for another wideout.
