Found September 05, 2012 on NFL Draft Zone:

This week Oakland Raiders have to go up against the San Diego Chargers and are having a very bad time at wide receiver. Almost all the Raiders receivers have been banged up this week, with Denarius Moore their number 1 receiver not even practicing yet. In yesterdays’ practice fellow rookie Juron Criner was injured and both Jacoby Ford and Darrius Heyward-Bey have both been injured as well. This is great news if you have Darren McFadden as your fantasy running back because he is going to have to lead the way, OR is he?

Rod Streater is an undrafted free agent out of Temple who has made a huge impact for the Raiders early on and is flying up their depth charts. The Burlington, New Jersey native has great hands and was utilized quite a bit in the preseason. With a gun slinging quarterback, Streater is going to be a guy that takes a tons of balls away from guys like Jacoby Ford and DHB. Streater has great hands and could be this years Diamond in the Rough on offense, sort of like Denarius Moore from a year ago. This Oakland receiving core is starting to look pretty good, with the great addition of Streater.
