Raiders | WRs hurt by injury to QB

Oakland Raiders WR Darrius Heyward-Bey led the team in receiving in Week 16 against the Carolina Panthers, and he had just two grabs for 31 yards. The passing game struggled once QB Carson Palmer (ribs) went down early in the game and was replaced by QB Matt Leinart. WR Derek Hagan had one grab for 19 yards, WR Rod Streater had two snares for 16 yards and WR Denarius Moore was limited to three catches for 12 yards.

Fantasy Tip: If Palmer is unable to go in Week 17, it appears Leinart would get the start against the San Diego Chargers. If so, none of the Oakland wide receivers are worth using for fantasy purposes in those leagues yet to decide their champion.
