According to many fantasy experts, Brandon Lloyd was overrated heading into this season.
Maybe he is, maybe he isn't. The important thing to note is that there is no Nnamdi Asomugha currently on the Raiders after the team lost him via free agency.
While Oakland ranked second best in pass yards allowed last season, the ranking will drop significantly. Kyle Orton is still Denver's starting quarterback and the two men have formed a bond that cannot be broken by Stanford Routt. There is no 6'2" cornerback like Asomugha left on Oakland's roster to stop Lloyd from connecting with Orton on a goal-line fade route.
Brandon Lloyd will have 1 touchdown grab.
