Denarius Moore benched for dropped passes: Fantasy implications

US PRESSWIRE

The Raiders confirmed that they benched Denarius Moore against the Browns for dropped balls and poor play. We break down the fantasy implications.

Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen confirmed in his post-game presser that WR Denarius Moore was benched in the Browns game for dropped balls: "Dropped a couple balls, and we got to make plays when you've got opportunities...It wasn't from a lack of effort, but we've got to make plays when we've got an opportunity."

Rookie Rod Streater took Moore's place and responded well, with three catches for 96 yards and a TD.

Fantasy Impact: Moore had been one of the few decent fantasy options on Oakland's WR corps, so his benching is discouraging news at playoff time.

I would normally write it off as an off game, but with the Raiders' season in the toilet, they may be inclined to give a longer look at Streater, who has shown flashes of brilliance. Don't count on Moore to carry your roster in the fantasy playoffs.
