WR Rod Streater - Free Agent
|6-3, 200||Born: 2-9-1988||College: Temple||Drafted: ---|
2016 Week 12 vs MIA (5 / 4 / 46 / 0 rec)
Streater saw a sharp increase in snaps after Quinton Patton got concussed early in the third quarter. Unlike Patton, Streater was able to find repeated success against Miami's man-to-man coverage. One of his receptions was a bubble screen on 3rd-and-13, but the other three were all a result of beating defenders one on one. His first catch, a 25-yarder came on a quick slant against Bobby McCain. He beat McCain inside and then broke his tackle to get into wide open space. Streater's final two receptions involved him operating out of the slot against linebackers Neville Hewitt and Jelani Jenkins in primary coverage.
2016 Week 13 vs CHI (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Streater's lone target came on a not-quick slant from the slot on San Francisco's fourth play of the game. Colin Kaepernick's throw was low, but catchable. It fell incomplete because the 49ers' powers-that-be chose to prepare for a game played in wind and snow by vacationing at Disney World.
2016 Week 16 vs LA (7 / 6 / 63 / 1 rec)
Streater made the most of his opportunity to start in place of the newly IR'ed Quinton Patton. His first target was on a 3rd-down shallow crossing route through the Rams' zone that produced a tough 8-yard catch in traffic and a first down. His second target was also a shallow crossing route that should have also converted on 3rd down, but Colin Kaepernick threw the ball too far behind him. Accuracy wasn't an issue on Streater's next target, as his deep out route beat the Rams' Cover-2 and Kaepernick's sideline pass was perfectly thrown between the cornerback and safety. From here, the rest of Streater's targets came with Los Angeles playing soft coverage while nursing their fourth-quarter lead. In this span, he had 4 receptions for 38 yards and the game-winning touchdown. On the touchdown, Streater's slant route came open immediately against E.J. Gaines's off-man coverage, Kaepernick hit him in stride, which prevented Gaines from being able to tackle Streater before he reached the end zone.
2016 Week 17 vs SEA (1 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)
Streater caught a 5-yard pass in the first quarter, but it was nullified by an illegal shift penalty. His only official target came midway through the second quarter. Safety Kam Chancellor lined up against him at the snap, but dropped into zone coverage. Streater sat down in said down and hauled in an easy 5-yard completion. Of note: His disappearing act had nothing to do with Richard Sherman, as Streater only lined up against him three times all game, but all three were running plays.
2015 Week 1 vs CIN (1 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)
Streater had a quiet game and has fallen behind Seth Roberts on the depth chart.
2014 Week 1 vs NYJ (7 / 5 / 46 / 1 rec)
Streater was Carr's favorite target in the first half, seeing a lot of passes underneath the defense. His touchdown came on a great play design. Streater caught the ball in the flats at the 12 yard line and flashed good speed to get around two blocks and to the pylon untouched. His only catch down field came on a 17 yard back shoulder throw that was well executed by Carr and Streater showed good timing with the rookie. With the Raiders focusing on short passes it was only natural for Streater to be the most involved.
2014 Week 2 vs HOU (3 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)
After being the featured receiver in Week 1, Streater was not a factor against the Texans. He made a poor effort on a deep ball down the left sideline and dropped a beautiful pass down the seam from Carr. His only reception was of the shorter variety and he was not high in the pecking order for targets.
2014 Week 3 vs NE (3 / 3 / 32 / 0 rec)
Streater ran some excellent routes early in the game and had really good timing with Carr. Unfortunately, he left the game in the second quarter and was carted to the locker room. It was reported after the game that he had a fractured foot.
2013 Week 1 vs IND (8 / 5 / 70 / 0 rec, 1 / 9 / 0 rush)
Streater caught the game's two opening passes, a nine yard cross and an 18 yard pass thrown up by Pryor under duress. Streater made a really nice snag on a low pass from Pryor to start the team's second drive. It was a quick read and Pryor fired the ball and Streater's shins. Streater not only caught it, but he kept his feet and picked up a first down. Streater really seemed to know how to get into Pryor's line of sight when Pryor was scrambling around looking for anyone to throw the ball to.
2013 Week 2 vs JAX (4 / 3 / 42 / 0 rec)
Streater looks like Pryor's most reliable target in the passing game. Streater's best catch was a leaping grab over the middle knowing he was going to take a big hit in the second quarter. Streater was mostly targeted underneath, but did have a 27 yard catch reversed by penalty. He is willing to expand his catch radius and take a hit and that's something Terrelle Pryor has to have.
2013 Week 3 vs DEN (4 / 3 / 42 / 0 rec)
Streater looked much better when Pryor was out of the pocket and looking for help. His 28 yard gain came on exactly that type of play and Streater showed good YAC skills to gain yardage after the catch. Streater was targeted on one of Pryor's few deep throws in single coverage. Streater had no separation whatsoever on the deep ball and made a pretty poor effort to get to the ball.
2013 Week 4 vs WAS (3 / 2 / 18 / 0 rec)
Streater was expected to have an expanded role with Matt Flynn at quarterback but that did not come to fruition. He was all but locked up until a 14 yard grab in the 4th quarter against prevent defense. When Flynn looked short he looked to his running backs and when he looked at Streater he didn't see anyone open enough to get the ball to.
2013 Week 5 vs SD (3 / 3 / 56 / 1 rec)
The highlight of Streater's day came on the first play of the game. He flew by his man down the right sideline and hauled in a well-placed throw from Pryor for a 44 yard touchdown. His most impressive catch came late in the second quarter. Pryor threw high and wide on a short hitch and Streater showed great ball skills, extending to snatch the ball out of the air.
2013 Week 6 vs KC (7 / 3 / 46 / 0 rec)
Streater's catch in the first quarter came on a solid route against a safety. He beat the safety across the middle for a 15 yard reception. His 13 yard catch in the fourth quarter came on a slant against Cooper who was playing soft coverage. These were two of the very few times that Streater was able to get in the open against Chiefs coverage.
2013 Week 8 vs PIT (6 / 4 / 45 / 0 rec)
Three of Streater's four catches came on deep hitches, or comebacks, as Pryor scrambled out of the pocket. Of all the receivers, Streater continues to do the best job of coming back to his quarterback when he's in trouble. Streater's best catch was a 16 yard grab in the second quarter where he showed great footwork to stay in bounds in the red zone. Brice Butler- Butler should see his playing time significantly reduced. He saw two very catchable targets in the short passing game and dropped both of them. While both were egregious, the second proved much more costly as it ricocheted into the hands of a defensive back for an interception.
2013 Week 9 vs PHI (6 / 5 / 98 / 0 rec)
The play that made Streater's day was a 66 yard reception in the first quarter. Streater caught a short slant in stride and flashed incredible speed, outrunning the Eagles secondary first across the field and then down the sideline. Good downfield blocking extended the play. Streater's best route of the day came when he so badly fooled a defensive back on a deep hitch that the defender fell down. As good as that route was, his mishandling of a pass from Terrelle Pryor in the 3rd quarter was worse. The ball was about head high and Streater volleyed the ball up in the air like a setter where it was snatched out of the air by an Eagle.
2013 Week 10 vs NYG (4 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)
Streater's first and only catch came late in the third quarter one an open short hitch. He was targeted sparingly throughout the game and was well covered when he was.
2013 Week 11 vs HOU (8 / 6 / 84 / 1 rec, 1 / 8 / 0 rush)
Streater was McGloin's favorite target and generally rewarded the rookie quarterback for his trust. His touchdown catch was just a perfectly thrown pass, though Streater did do a nice job of using his body as a shield on the 16 yard post. After a bad drop on a deep post, Streater showed great concentration to haul in a 36 yard bomb despite illegal contact and a hand in his face from the defender. Streater was also used in the short passing game, but his catches were generally more in rhythm and downfield that they have been with Pryor.
2013 Week 12 vs TEN (9 / 5 / 93 / 0 rec)
Streater was the clear WR1 in the Raiders' offense with Denarius Moore out. His best catch of the day by far was a leaping grab on a short cross to start the Raiders only touchdown drive. Streater timed his jump perfectly and showed good hands to haul in the hard pass. Later in the same drive he made another leaping grab on the left sideline, had his feet taken out from under him and held on as he crashed to the ground. It looked like the wind was knocked from him and he had to leave the game. Streater had a good connection with McGloin once the rookie quarterback settled in and looked comfortable with the entire route tree.
2013 Week 13 vs DAL (4 / 3 / 57 / 0 rec)
Streater got off to a hot start with two catches for 47 yards very early in the ball game, but largely disappeared after that. Both of his catches came on deep routes down the sideline with McGloin showing faith in his receiver to make a grab in coverage. He showed good body control to stay in bounds on the two plays, but didn't see much action afterwards. His only other catch came on a short route in the two minute drill at the end of the game.
2013 Week 14 vs NYJ (10 / 7 / 130 / 1 rec)
Streater was the star of the day in the Raiders receiving corps, taking advantage of a favorable game script. He made several nice catches including a slant in all kinds of traffic that he took to the house for a 48 yard score. The Jets tried to jump the route and McGloin threw into an area with two Raiders and three Jets. Streater came away with the ball and had no one between him and the end zone as he outran the defense to the house. Streater's best catch was a diving grab on a deep cross for 16 yards to start the second half. He also made a nice leaping grab on a deep out where he was well covered and held on after taking a crushing blow on a short cross. Streater was tackled at the one in the fourth quarter and had another red zone target batted away at the last second or he could have had a huge day. He showed a grasp of the entire route tree and just about every skill you'd want from a receiver.
2013 Week 15 vs KC (9 / 4 / 59 / 0 rec)
Streater made a tough grab in tight coverage and then broke away from a defender on his 26 yard reception. He later made another good grab on a cross thrown behind him, and then sprinted up the field for another good sized gain. He was limited by the Chiefs tight coverage and his quarterback's poor decision making.
2013 Week 16 vs SD (5 / 1 / 2 / 0 rec)
Streater had a terribly disappointing day. It appeared as if he caught a 39 yard touchdown in the 4th quarter only to have the ball squirt out of his hands after he'd hit the ground and rolled in the end zone. He also had an 18 yard grab called back because of illegal motion. Like Holmes, Streater suffered in the first three quarters because of McGloin's lack of confidence.
2013 Week 17 vs DEN (9 / 5 / 40 / 1 rec)
Streater did a great job in the first quarter coming back to the ball to grab a short hitch in between two defenders early in the game and made a great leaping catch later in the game going over the middle. His touchdown was the team's first with a little over 4 minutes left. Streater did a good job on the touchdown of using his body as a shield in the back corner of the end zone and good concentration hauling in the pass under duress. Streater also had a bad drop in the game and didn't seem to have the same chemistry with Pryor as he's had with McGloin.
2012 Week 1 vs SD (10 / 4 / 27 / 1 rec)
With Denarius Moore and Jacoby Ford both sidelined with injuries, the unheralded Streater earned the start in this game. He started his day by hauling in a wide open reception to convert a first down, but the play didn't go exactly as he planned. Streater actually did cover the ball with both hands and tried protecting it as he was being gang-tackled, but the defenders held him up somewhat as he was being dragged down. That momentary pause left the ball exposed just enough for a defender to pop it loose, and the ball went to San Diego. Interestingly, the Raiders went right back to Streater on the very next possession, and he made a nice grab on a ball thrown a bit behind him. He had a chance for a big gain in the second half on a deep ball that was seemingly in his grasp, but he couldn't come down with the catch which cost him a chance at a really big game. Streater was responsible for the Raiders only touchdown of the game, a quick slant in the end zone that he managed to hang onto despite a defender hanging all over him. He followed that up with an easy two point conversion reception to salvage a solid fantasy game. While his debut was a bit up and down, there was enough shown to think he can be a decent contributor until the starters return.
2012 Week 2 vs MIA (3 / 2 / 19 / 0 rec)
Streater retreated into a lesser role than that of a week ago, with the return of Moore. This is a role that suits him better right now, as he doesn't seem to still know where he is on the field yet, as evidenced by some miscommunication between him and Palmer. That being said, his physical abilities are undeniable, and he could still work his way into a greater role as the season goes along.
2012 Week 3 vs PIT (2 / 2 / 22 / 0 rec)
Streater, the undrafted rookie, impressed in training camp and played a lot of snaps in the first two weeks as Denarius Moore was injured. With Moore back, Streater was reduced to a secondary option. His biggest highlight of the day came on Oakland's touchdown drive that began in the third quarter and ended early in the fourth. Streater made himself available to catch a 17-yard pass on a 3rd-and-9 that continued the drive. With Darrius Heyward-Bey potentially missing time after leaving with a concussion, Streater's role may grow once again. It's a situation to monitor.
2012 Week 4 vs DEN (2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Streater was targeted twice, but didn't register any stats on Sunday. He did have a drop on what would have been a first down in the third quarter. Streater created some buzz during the preseason, but he does appear somewhat overwhelmed at the moment.
2012 Week 7 vs JAX (4 / 2 / 41 / 0 rec)
Although he just missed reeling in a touchdown pass, Streater made acrobatic plays on his two catches, netting 41 yards total. The undrafted rookie from Temple has impressed many on the Raiders coaching staff, quickly passing 5th rounder Juron Criner in training camp, and even drawing a few starts when Moore and Heyward-Bey were banged up. With both starting receivers healthy, he's clearly the 3rd wide receiver. But, he's developed some chemistry with Palmer and if continues to make plays, he may see more time on the field.
2012 Week 9 vs TB (10 / 4 / 54 / 1 rec)
Streater's first target came in the endzone when Palmer threw to him against single coverage. He couldn't reach the ball as he laid out to catch it above the defender. Streater was again alone with a defensive back late in the second quarter when Palmer threw the ball up for him to go and get. Unfortunately he couldn't get position and was resorted to just batting the ball away to prevent the interception. Palmer failed to link up with Streater on the very next play when Eric Wright beat him to the ball on a slant pattern, but it proved to be third time lucky as the Buccaneers were finally punished for leaving him alone on an island. Streater stretched his legs to sweep past EJ Biggars down the right sideline, before catching a perfectly thrown pass from Palmer in the endzone. Streater's next reception came in the fourth quarter when he caught a quick out, before then coming back with a deep slant for a first down. Streater was Palmer's primary receiver on this drive as his third target also resulted in a first down reception. The receiver caught a curl in front of the defensive back just at the marker. Streater then drew a pass interference penalty in the endzone.
2012 Week 10 vs BAL (3 / 1 / 11 / 0 rec)
Streater did not make the most of his opportunities against Baltimore. After a nice play on an early slant route to get inside position to convert on third down, it was downhill for the rookie. Palmer made a great throw into double coverage for Streater to make a play. Streater got two hands on the ball, but failed to haul in the catch. Later on third-and-long, Streater got another well-thrown target in the end zone, but dropped with pass. With Juron Criner playing well in this game, Streater cannot afford to squander his limited opportunities to make plays like he did in this one.
2012 Week 11 vs NO (4 / 2 / 26 / 0 rec)
Streater was largely irrelevant in the passing game, picking up four targets and catching two for 26 yards. Streater's first catch came on the first drive, but only picked up six yards, coming up well short of the first down. Streater's most relevant play, however, was the offensive pass interference penalty he picked up trying to rub/pick the defender on the fade pass to Heyward-Bey, pushing the Raiders off the goal line. Streater nearly fumbled on a quick slant in the third quarter, but was ultimately saved by the replay assistant who deemed the pass incomplete. Streater's 2nd catch came on the Raiders' final drive, picking up 20 yards on the deep out.
2012 Week 13 vs CLE (4 / 3 / 96 / 1 rec)
Streater got involved in the passing game late in the third quarter. Palmer made a beautiful throw down the seam as Streater gained late separation at the top of his route. He easily outran the defense for the score, which closed the gap to 13-10 at the time. Later in the second half, Streater collected his second reception on as many targets - a wide open out route. On both of his chances this week, Streater made big plays and was a bright spot on an otherwise unimpressive offensive day for the Raiders.
2012 Week 14 vs DEN (7 / 4 / 100 / 0 rec)
On second and 10, Carson Palmer threw the deep ball to Rod Streater in double coverage. Streater sprinted past the two defenders to coral the ball for a huge gain. Streater's next reception was for a much smaller gain, but he did catch a curl route on the otuside for nine yards before pushing his way forward for a first down. Streater's next play wasn't so impressive as he dropped a wide open slant route. Streater's head turned down the field before the ball was in his hands. It was a simple concentration issue. Palmer went straight back to Streater as he ran the same route from the outside and beat the defensive back for a first down. Streater caught a 13 yard out route on first and 20 deep in Raiders' territory.
2012 Week 15 vs KC (6 / 5 / 62 / 0 rec)
Rod Streater was the primary target in the passing game for Carson Palmer. It is Streater's route-running ability and trust factor with Palmer that earns him the targets - and more often than not, he rewards that trust. Streater consistently plucked the football out of the air, notably on a post pattern where he shielded the ball with his body as a defender tried to knock the ball down. With the passing game taking a backseat to the ground game, Streater's involvement was minimal. However, he was definitely the most consistent pass catcher the team had.
2012 Week 16 vs CAR (5 / 2 / 16 / 0 rec)
Rod Streater could have reeled in a rare downfield pass from Matt Leinart along the right sideline, but it was broken up by the DB in the zone. Streater managed to catch a 12-yard quick slant delivered accurately by Leinart, but he too was hamstrung by the lack of any quality at the quarterback position.
2012 Week 17 vs SD (5 / 4 / 77 / 0 rec)
Streater was the high man in terms of productivity on the day, leading the team with 77 receiving yards. Almost half of that work came on one play, and that one play almost didn't happen. San Diego HC Norv Turner had the option of letting the Raiders attempt a long field goal on 4th down or accepting a penalty that would back them up and make it 3rd and 7. Turner opted for the penalty to push the field goal back a bit, but on the very next play, Terrelle Pryor hit Streater in stride down the sideline for a 38-yard gain. It looked as if Streater was going to score, but he was tackled down at the 3-yard line. It was impressive enough that Streater was even IN the game to make that play, as he had been briefly knocked from the action a couple of plays earlier. He made back to back terrific catches on poorly thrown balls by Pryor, and took a vicious shot to the back on the second one. He stayed down for awhile and was slow to get up, but he clearly was no worse for wear once he did. The only other time Streater came close to scoring was on a first half fade pattern in the corner of the end zone, but the pass was well-defended.
