Contra Costa Times - [Full Article]

Wide receiver Denarius Moore caught a pass for 7 yards on the Raiders first play from scrimmage Sunday. He had only one other reception until he caught a 6-yard touchdown with 28 seconds left in the game.

It begs the question, why wasn’t Moore more of a factor in the offense?
Moore has developed into one of Oakland’s most consistent performers. Yet, Sunday he was an afterthought in the game plan. Overall, he caught only three passes for 19 yards.

Moore also returned a punt 58 yards on his lone opportunity. A block in the back by Darryl Blackstock negated the return, and Moore was credited with only 18 yards.

Fantasy Impact: 

Perhaps the young WR isn't doing everything he can to earn more targets. After a monster game two weeks ago, Moore is still a risky play until he shows more fantasy-point-producing consistency. He's still worth owning because better days should be ahead.
