When Matt McGloin was named the Oakland Raiders' starter for Week 11's game against the Houston Texans, it seemed likely that the receivers on the team would see their fantasy value plummet. 

Instead, Rod Streater and Denarius Moore each reached the end zone and were beneficiaries of McGloin's surprisingly strong NFL debut.

Still, it's hard to trust this Raiders passing game, which came into the week 31st in passing yards. Yes, McGloin played well against a Texans team that came into the week first in passing yards allowed, but it's safe to say Houston is a pretty big mess in every facet of the game right now.

Moore was a steady WR2 early in the season, but he's been bumped down to the realm of high-end WR3 after three straight weeks without a touchdown coming into Sunday. Consider him a solid flex option no matter who is under center.   

As for Streater, well, he's boom or bust. He's scored seven or more fantasy points four times and reached double digits twice, but he's also scored four or less fantasy points six times this season. Streater isn't to be trusted and should only be utilized as a flex option in deep leagues when presented with plus matchups.
