Priest was downgraded to doubtful so it looks like LJ is going to get the start vs Oaklands toilet paper defence. If you've been holding him on your bench all year like I have, now it's time to reap the benefits without worrying about how many carries he's going to get in a RBBC.

Chiefs running back Priest Holmes will be officially downgraded to doubtful for this week's game against the Raiders because of the concussion he sustained in week eight, a team source confirmed for Fanball.com after practice on Friday. "I haven't [gotten the doctor's report] but [team president] Carl Peterson and other people have talked to him," head coach Dick Vermeil said. "It's doubtful." Holmes, who is on his way back from California from a visit with a neurological specialist, missed all three team practices this week.
Larry Johnson, your table is set. Last year, Johnson served as the Chiefs' feature back in both games against the Raiders and totaled 296 combined yards and four touchdowns. Assuming Holmes is indeed inactive on Sunday, L.J. is a must play.
