Oakland Raiders WR Brice Butler might have seen his chances at
cracking the 53-man roster placed in serious jeopardy when the team
brought in WR Greg Little. The team is likely to keep six receivers,
with WRs James Jones, Denarius Moore, Rod Streater, Andre Holmes and
Little as the top five.
Huddle Up: That puts Butler -- a 7th-round pick who last season hauled in 9
passes for 103 yards as a rookie -- in a battle for the sixth and
final WR spot -- if they do indeed keep that many -- but the useful
fantasy production figures to only run 2-3 deep among the contingent
in any case.

Oakland Raiders WR Brice Butler has performed well during training camp and is now working with the first-team offense. Butler has shown smooth route running and the ability to make the big catch since camp started.
Huddle Up: Butler has been a preseason star in the Raiders first two games and now looks to be pushing for the third receiver job behind Denarius Moore and Rod Streater. Butler could be worth a late-round flier in deeper leagues but right now his biggest value is in dynasty formats.
