So far this season, the Oakland Raiders, have lead us on a crazy journey. From extreme high is to extreme lower (like last week’s loss against the Kansas City Chiefs). This season has been crazy and unpredictable from game one. One thing that is been consistent for the last four games has been the play up Darius Hayward Bey!
Hayward Bey is the top wide receiver for the Oakland Raiders, statistically, and in spirit for the last four games. In our last game verses the Kansas City chiefs, DHB was targeted 11 times. That would be consistent with being the” go to guy” on the team.
DHB has taken on the leadership roll of the wide receiver corp. Our wide receiving corps is so young, that DHB is considered a veteran with only three years in the league. DHB is playing like a man possessed. He playing like he is mad at the NFL and me likey! Crabtree who?
Now, to the subject at hand, is DHB considered an elite wide receiver? Statistically I would say no. Is DHB a fantasy option now? I would definitely say YES! With the acquisition of Carson Palmer, I think Darius Hayward Bey’s statistics are only going to get better in the last four games. DHB has flirted with or achieved 100 yards receiving in the last four games. Carson Palmer has two weeks to prepare for the Denver Broncos. He also has two weeks to become BFF’s with the DHB! I see good things in the near future for both.
Is Darius Hayward bay is available in your league, pick him up now! Don’t expect Wes Welker type numbers but expect consistency. I would use him as a second or third wide receiver or a flex position. (Definitely a #2 in PPR leagues!)
