Denarius Moore practices Wednesday, questionable this week for fantasy owners

Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports

The Raiders top pass catcher returned to practice on Wednesday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Oakland Raiders wide receiver Denarius Moore returned to practice on Wednesday, according to a report from Jerry McDonald of the Oakland Tribune. Moore hasn't played since suffering his injury against the Houston in Week 11.

Fantasy Impact: Moore is far and away the team's best receiver. That said, things have changed since he got hurt a few weeks ago.

At the time it wasn't certain who the team's quarterback was. Terrelle Pryor was dealing with injuries and Matt McGloin was on the rise. Now it's clear that the team will continue to evaluate McGloin with the team no longer in playoff contention.

If Moore does play this week, he could be limited. The Kansas City Chiefs rank in the middle of the pack in terms of the number of fantasy points they give up to receivers.

When you consider these factors, it'll be tough to automatically start Moore now that the fantasy playoffs are well underway. Fantasy owners should consider the depth of their roster and the size of their league before deciding whether to start Moore on Sunday, assuming he plays.
