Raiders HC Dennis Allen and OC Greg Olson at times were critical of wide receiver Denarius Moore for his inconsistency.
Here’s what Allen had to say about Moore’s progress in that regard:
“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. I’ve seen some strides and hopefully he’ll continue to make those strides.”
Moore is competing for one of two starting spots, with Rod Streater and James Jones the other leading candidates. Allen said the Raiders can succeed without a legitimate No. 1 receiver, as long as a corps of good receivers makes plays when needed.
Whoever starts for the Raiders will likely be fantasy relevant, but the same can't be said for the team's WR3. This is something to monitor as the offseason wears on. Our money is on Rod Streater and James Jones, but Moore has shown flashes of potential. It's worrisome that Allen wasn't more complimentary at this point in the summer.
