Denarius Moore appears to be "a lock" to play Sunday when the Oakland Raiders take on the Miami Dolphins, Jerry McDonald of the Contra Costa Times reports. Moore sat out Monday's season opener against the San Diego Chargers with a hamstring injury, but he has been full-go in practice this week. Carson Palmer praised the wideout Wednesday.
"He looked like the Denarius of old,'' Palmer said. "He made a couple phenomenal catches.''
Analysis: With Darrius Heward-Bey struggling against the Chargers, Moore could be the most important man in the Raiders' receiving corps. He isn't the biggest or the fastest player on the field, but he has some acrobatic flair and he should significantly help a Raiders offense that couldn't get much of anything going downfield. He's worth consideration as a WR2 or Flex option in standard leagues, though you may want to make sure he's back at 100 percent this week before starting him.
