The Raiders have seven players inactive for tonight's game, includeing Jacoby Ford and Denarius Moore. We break down the fantasy implications.

Per The Costa Contra Times, the Oakland Raiders will have seven players inactive for Saturday's game against the Detroit Lions: WR Jacoby Ford, WR Denarius Moore, C Steve Wisnieski, LB Aaron Curry, DT Richard Seymour, and OL Ed Wang and Zach Hurd.

Analysis: Ford has been in a walking boot most of the week, and his status is uncertain for Week 1. Moore has been bothered by a hamstring injury since the middle of June, missing all of training camp and the preseason so far, but he appears to be ready for the regular season and ahead of Ford on the recovery timetable. His fantasy draft stock was shot by this injury, and his health is too uncertain to rely on as a WR3. Curry is fresh off the PUP and will likely miss the fourth preseason game as well. Seymour is taking another day off to rest his aging knees.
