Terrelle Pryor may be the next big NFL fantasy football star

The Cleveland Browns' 2016 NFL season is pretty much already over. 

After three games, all of which have resulted in losses and injuries to key players, a large proportion of Browns fans have already given up on the current campaign and any chance the Ohio franchise had of making the playoffs.

While the Browns somehow yet again managed to scrape defeat from the jaw of victory, one very interesting thing did happen. That would be Terrelle Pryor, who put in a performance that could change NFL fantasy football massively this season.

Cleveland are making do with their third-string quarterback right now, Cody Kessler, who didn't look great in his debut against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. 

After Kessler fumbled on his first possession of the game, Browns head coach Hue Jackson decided to mix things up and put Terrelle Pryor in at quarterback, moving him from wide receiver. It worked, really well in fact. And now the Browns, who have already been written off, have our intrigue.

With both Josh McCown and Robert Griffin III out for the immediate future, Pryor could become a huge factor in fantasy football if Hue Jackson keeps on using him as a wildcat quarterback of sorts.

Pryor completed three of five passes for 35 yards and ran for 21 more, including a touchdown on the ground. Then, when he went back out to wide receiver, Pryor shined there as well - hauling in eight of 14 passes from Kessler for 144 yards. 

In NFL standard scoring, Pryor ended up with a shade under 24 points. That is ridiculous. If he can keep it up, the Browns wide receiver could be the most important player on your team.
