Denarius Moore held in check by Giants for mediocre fantasy day

The Star-Ledger-USA TODAY Sports

The Raiders wide receiver simply wasn’t able to break through against the Giants in Week 10. We break down the fantasy implications.

Oakland Raiders wide receiver Denarius Moore caught just three passes for 45 yards in the team's 24-20 loss to the New York Giants in Week 10. Moore was targeted nine times in the game.

Fantasy impact: There is no doubt that Moore is the most talented wide receiver on the Raiders roster. He got plenty of looks against the Giants, but the fact is his quarterback, Terrelle Pryor, had a rough day. When you consider the fact that Pryor was only able to complete 11 passes in the game, it's actually pretty impressive that Moore was able to catch three of them.

As long as both passer and receiver are clicking, Moore has proven to be reliable and put up the numbers this year. As with any young quarterbacks in the NFL, there are going to be some bumps in the road. In fantasy football, those bumps trickle down to the backfield and the wide receivers.

Consider Moore's effort on Sunday a one-off kind of thing. He's the type of receiver who usually is able to get right back to being productive following a sub-par performance.
