Denarius Moore is sidelined with ankle and knee issues he suffered falling down the stairs at the Raiders' team hotel in Week 14.

Unbelievable. Moore has simply become snakebitten, though he hasn't helped his own cause. Moore has just 12 catches through 10 games this season, and has twice been a healthy scratch. An impending free agent, Moore is highly unlikely to be back with the Raiders in 2015.

Denarius Moore is a healthy scratch for Sunday's Week 13 game at St. Louis.

Moore has been active the last two games, but hasn't seen an offensive snap. He's in Tony Sparano's doghouse after muffing a punt against the Chiefs two Thursdays ago. The rest of the Raiders inactives: QB Matt McGloin, RB Latavius Murray, CB Neiko Thorpe, S Jonathan Dowling, G Tony Bergstrom and G Stacy McGee.

Denarius Moore secured his lone target for 13 yards in Week 7 against the Cardinals.

Now rotating with Brice Butler behind Andre Holmes and James Jones, Moore made a third-quarter appearance on a 13-yard reception. Dynasty owners can consider holding Moore because he is an impending free agent and might land somewhere better next year, but he obviously carries zero re-draft value.

Raiders interim coach Tony Sparano stated Wednesday that Denarius Moore now has a "clean slate."

Moore was deservedly scratched in Week 4 after dropping a game-ending pass in Week 3 that Vince Wilfork intercepted. On the season, Moore has pathetically managed 60 scoreless yards on 20 targets. Until something changes, we're considering Moore the Raiders' No. 4 receiver behind Andre Holmes, James Jones, and Vincent Brown. Brice Butler also ran ahead of Moore before the bye.

Denarius Moore is a healthy scratch for Week 4.

Even for the talent-deficient Raiders, Moore hasn't played well enough this season to be active. In an indication of just how far he's fallen, he's a healthy scratch even with Rod Streater (foot) sidelined. James Jones and Andre Holmes will start in London. Holmes is a nice WR4/5 sleeper for Week 4.

Denarius Moore caught three passes for 23 yards in Sunday's Week 3 loss to the Patriots.

He was targeted six times, behind only Marcel Reece. Moore was highly inefficient and continued to struggle with drops, including a pass that he deflected to Patriots DT Vince Wilfork for an interception on the Raiders' final drive. Even with Rod Streater (foot) likely to miss extended time, Moore should remain unrostered in fantasy leagues.
Sep 21 - 5:31 PM

Denarius Moore secured 3-of-5 targets for 29 yards in the Raiders' Week 2 loss to the Texans.

He now has 37 yards on 13 targets through two games. That's the kind of inefficiency coaches despise, and why Moore's role is now likelier to dwindle than grow with James Jones and Andre Holmes simply outplaying him. We'll be crossing our fingers that the Raiders trade Moore to a real team before October's trade deadline. A team that could get him the ball on vertical routes.
Sep 14 - 8:33 PM

Denarius Moore caught two passes for eight yards in the Raiders' Week 1 loss to the Jets.

Moore was targeted a team-high eight times by Derek Carr. But most of them came on short passes. That's not where Moore wins. OC Greg Olson didn't dial up many deep shots for Carr, leaving Moore mostly useless as the No. 3 receiver. As Carr's leash grows longer, Moore should post a couple big games. He's not a reliable fantasy starter, but is an upside WR4/5 stash.
Sep 7 - 6:08 PM

Coach Dennis Allen said he saw a "different demeanor" out of Denarius Moore this summer, and believes Moore is "beginning to take that next step."

"D-Mo has really kind of gotten back to where he was maybe a couple of years ago when we first got here," Allen said. "He’s been a lot more consistent." Moore is penciled in as the Raiders' No. 3 receiver behind James Jones and Rod Streater. He'll serve as the deep threat, and is a good fit for rookie QB Derek Carr's cannon of an arm. Moore can run with the best of them, while Carr can chuck it deep. Moore has sneaky upside and is worth watching early on. The Raiders are going to be throwing the ball and playing catch-up a ton this season.
Sep 2 - 11:35 PM

Denarius Moore caught two passes for 46 yards in Friday's preseason game against the Packers.

Moore was the clear-cut No. 3 receiver, behind starters James Jones and Rod Streater. It's not a role that's going to yield box-score production given the Raiders' quarterback situation. Through three preseason games, Moore has six catches for 82 yards and no scores.
Aug 22 - 11:43 PM

ESPN Raiders reporter Paul Gutierrez believes Denarius Moore is "squarely on the roster bubble" in Oakland.

Moore was listed with the third-team offense on the Raiders' initial depth chart behind Andre Holmes, James Jones, Rod Streater, and Greg Little. The coaching staff may be trying to light a fire under him, but there's also been talk over the past year that coach Dennis Allen and company have soured on Moore. Entering the final year of his rookie deal, Moore could be shopped via trade later this month. He's still just 25 and has gobs of talent. Work ethic is the concern.
Aug 8 - 11:58 AM

Denarius Moore is listed as a third-team wide receiver on the Raiders' first depth chart of training camp.

We'd like to see deep threat Moore traded to a team where he could be more useful. We're hopeful that will happen around final cuts. Moore is with the threes opposite Juron Criner, behind starters Andre Holmes and Rod Streater. James Jones and Greg Little are listed as Oakland's second-team wideouts.
Aug 4 - 5:09 PM

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.
