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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
