Raiders coach Dennis Allen and OC Greg Olson have both continued to express concern with Denarius Moore's "consistency" this offseason.
Moore has been prone to drops and mental mistakes throughout his up-and-down three-year career. "We’re still working through that," Allen said. "He’s not unlike a lot of guys we have on our football team. He’s still got a lot of improvement that he’s got to make." Rod Streater and James Jones are seen as the "leading candidates" to open the season as Oakland's starting wideouts. Jun 16 - 3:41 PM

ESPN's Paul Gutierrez believes Denarius Moore could be traded if the Raiders select Clemson WR Sammy Watkins in the draft.

Gutierrez called Watkins "Moore 2.0" and hinted the Raiders are fed up with Moore's inconsistency. Moore also may be surplus to requirements. Oakland added veteran James Jones in the offseason and has two young breakout candidates in Rod Streater and Andre Holmes in need of snaps. Moore finished 2013 with 47 catches, 695 yards, and five touchdowns in only 13 games.
Apr 26 - 1:40 PM

Denarius Moore caught four passes for 63 yards in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Broncos.

Moore led the Raiders in receiving, but finished behind Rod Streater and Andre Holmes with seven targets. He finishes the 2013 season with 47 catches, 695 yards, and five touchdowns over 13 games. Moore has struggled to stay healthy since entering the league in 2011. The Raiders will likely continue to start Moore in 2014, with Streater and Holmes playing in three-receiver sets. Wideout is one of the few positions at which Oakland has some core long-range talent.

Denarius Moore caught three passes for 17 yards in Week 16 against the Chargers.

Moore rotated with Andre Holmes in two-wide sets and secured all three of his targets in the passing game. He hasn't looked completely healthy since returning from his shoulder injury in Week 15 and just five catches for 63 yards over the last two weeks. The Raiders finish off the regular season against the Broncos in Week 17.
Sun, Dec 22, 2013 08:38:00 PM

Denarius Moore caught two passes for 46 yards in Sunday's Week 16 loss to the Chiefs.

Making his return from a shoulder injury, Moore rotated with Andre Holmes and saw just two targets. Considering how well Holmes is playing, there's no reason to think that will change over the final two weeks. Moore is waiver wire fodder despite a plus Week 16 matchup against the Chargers.

Denarius Moore (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Week 15.

Moore has missed the last three games with a shoulder injury, but practiced on a limited basis this week and is tentatively expected to return for Sunday's matchup with Kansas City. If active, he'll start opposite Rod Streater, with Andre Holmes moving back to the third receiver role.

Denarius Moore (shoulder) practiced again Friday and was "moving around pretty good," per the SF Chronicle's Vic Tafur.

Moore appears ready to return from his three-week shoulder injury, sending Andre Holmes into a third receiver role and shaking up Oakland's wideout corps. It's difficult to get excited about any Raiders pass catchers from a fantasy perspective ahead of Sunday's matchup with a reenergized Chiefs defense.
Fri, Dec 13, 2013 03:13:00 PM

Denarius Moore (shoulder) participated in Raiders practice for the second straight day Thursday.

He was officially "limited," as he was on Wednesday. Moore is trending in the right direction for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, which is bad news for Andre Holmes. Moore's status will be updated on Friday. With Matt McGloin at the controls, Moore won't be more than a WR4 if he suits up.
Thu, Dec 12, 2013 02:30:00 PM

Denarius Moore (shoulder) returned to a limited practice Wednesday.

Moore has missed the last three games with a shoulder injury, but is now on track to return this week. He won't be more than a WR4 if active in Week 15 against the Chiefs, but he will cripple Andre Holmes' sleeper appeal.
Wed, Dec 11, 2013 02:37:00 PM

Denarius Moore (shoulder) missed practice again Friday.

Andre Holmes remains on the Hail Mary WR3 radar against the Jets.
Fri, Dec 6, 2013 02:21:00 PM

Denarius Moore (shoulder) remained out of Raiders practice Thursday.

Barring a surprise Friday return, Moore will miss his third straight game in Week 14. Andre Holmes will get another start opposite Rod Streater, and is an interesting proposition as a hail mary WR4.
Thu, Dec 5, 2013 06:18:00 PM

Denarius Moore (shoulder) is not practicing Wednesday.

Moore has missed the last two games with his shoulder injury and his status remains up in the air for Week 14. If Moore is held out, Andre Holmes will continue to start opposite Rod Streater.
Wed, Dec 4, 2013 02:28:00 PM

Denarius Moore (shoulder) has been ruled out for Thursday's Week 13 game against the Cowboys.

Moore has yet to resume practicing and will miss his second straight game. Andre Holmes replaced him in the lineup last week and will likely start opposite Rod Streater. Moore is targeting a Week 14 return.
Wed, Nov 27, 2013 02:12:00 PM

Denarius Moore (shoulder) remained out of Raiders practice Tuesday.

He's not going to be active for Oakland's Thanksgiving trip to Dallas. With 12 more days to heal up, Moore should be ready to return for Week 14, where he'll be a WR4 for the Raiders' Matt McGloin-led offense.
Tue, Nov 26, 2013 02:47:00 PM

Denarius Moore (shoulder) did not participate in Monday's walkthrough.

Moore's inability to take part in a non-contact session suggests he's a longshot to play against the Cowboys on Thanksgiving. Andre Holmes will likely start again, but the only Raiders pass-catcher even worth considering is Rod Streater. He has 11 catches for 177 yards and one touchdown on 17 targets in the two full games Matt McGloin has played in this year.
