Summary

Unfortunately, any discussion of Martavis Bryant has to begin with his off-field issues. Character concerns coming out of Clemson caused Bryant to slide to the fourth-round of the 2014 NFL Draft, where he was scooped up by the Pittsburgh Steelers. Substance abuse issues continued to pose a problem for Bryant in the NFL, with a drug suspension costing him the entirety of the 2016 season. When he returned to the Steelers in 2017, his character and maturity remained an issue. Bryant demanded a trade, bad-mouthed the team and was generally disgruntled. During the 2018 NFL draft, the Raiders traded a third-round selection to the Steelers for Bryant. The Raiders are gambling that a change of scenery will help put the off-field issues in the past. Or at least that his undeniable talent makes him worth the trouble. Bryant is a physical specimen with sprinter speed and an imposing 6'4 frame. When properly focused, he is one of the game's most dangerous deep threats. Bryant is a boom or bust fantasy option. He could be out of the league with even one more slip-up. However, if he has his head on straight, he has WR2 potential due to his big-play ability and red zone presence. (May 28)

Raiders | Martavis Bryant on the field (Wed Aug 15, 07:46 PM) - Oakland Raiders WR Martavis Bryant (head) participated in practice Wednesday, Aug. 14, after he missed the previous two practices because of headaches.

Raiders | Martavis Bryant remains sidelined (Tue Aug 14, 07:49 PM) - Oakland Raiders WR Martavis Bryant (head) was held out of practice for a second straight day as he continues to deal with migraine headaches. Migraines have bothered Bryant for years now, according to The Athletic's Vic Tafur.

Our View: Bryant has already had a disappointing summer and might be losing snaps to Ryan Switzer in three-wide sets. He's oozing with physical talent, but Bryant's role and momentum are putting him on the fringe of draftable players in redraft leagues.

Raiders | No practice for Martavis Bryant (Mon Aug 13, 03:26 PM) - Oakland Raiders WR Martavis Bryant (head) did not participate in practice Monday, Aug. 13, because he was dealing with a headache, according to head coach Jon Gruden.

Raiders | Martavis Bryant stuck on second team for now (Fri Aug 10, 02:13 PM) - Oakland Raiders WR Martavis Bryant has been locked to the second unit, without many 11-on-11 reps early in camp, according to Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area.

Our View: Ryan Switzer may end up with more snaps and targets than Bryant at this rate. Bryant has tons of physical ability, but he might not have a big role in the Raiders offense after they spent a third round pick on him.

Raiders | Martavis Bryant not grasping playbook (Wed Aug 8, 02:11 PM) - Oakland Raiders WR Martavis Bryant is struggling to learn the playbook so far in training camp, according to offensive coordinator Greg Olson. The Raiders are trying to simplify Bryant's learning process so they can get him on the field more.

Our View: Bryant is a superfreak athlete who can take the top off the defense. Things shouldn't really be that complicated for him as he usually wins with physical traits (size, speed, athleticism) and not savvy route running. That being said, Bryant needs to pick up the playbook better if he wants to contribute at a high level.
