Denarius Moore left the game against Miami with cramping. We break down the fantasy implications.

Denarius Moore returned to action in Week 2 against the Dolphins, but his day was cut short when he exited the game in the third quarter due to cramping. Moore caught just three passes for 67 yards while he was on the field.

Fantasy Impact: Oakland is not off to a good start in 2012. Moore provides a decent offensive weapon for Carson Palmer, but the two did not look in sync in Week 2. Palmer targeted Moore eight times in his three quarters of play, but they were only able to connect on half of those throws. Cramping shouldn't worry fantasy owners too much, as this was Moore's first game of 2012 after missing significant time in preseason with a hamstring injury. Expect him to improve as he sees more reps going forward.
