Contra Costa Times - [Full Article]

Oakland Raiders rookie receiver Denarius Moore turned in the catch of the day at Oakland's Saturday practice.

Moore slowed up from an underthrown pass from Jason Campbell, got position, timed his leap perfectly, and snatched the ball at its highest point for a long reception.

Moore’s catch elicited hearty applause from the fans in attendance.

"I told you he’s a special player," Campbell said. "He made a big third-down play (Thursday) and got yards after the catch. That was big. And then the punt return, ended up almost taking one to the house. It got called back, but you could see flashes of his talent and ability."

Moore wasn’t the only receiver who turned in a solid practice. Raiders head coach Hue Jackson doled out high praise for Darrius Heyward-Bey for his three receptions, including one that he turned into a long touchdown.

Fantasy Impact: 

Moore is currently at a very low position on our board, but given the current injuries to Chaz Schilens and Louis Murphy, he's been making some waves and has the potential to move up if his solid play continues. And it's very encouraging that Campbell is high on him.
