Denarius Moore misses practice again, still not on the fantasy radar

Moore missed practice again and isn't expected to play this week. We break down the fantasy implications.

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Oakland Raiders wide receiver Denarius Moore was held out of practice on Thursday. It's the second day in a row he has not practiced, making it extremely unlikely he will suit up in Sunday's game against the New York Jets.

Moore suffered a shoulder injury and missed the last two games. He is hoping to come back for next week's Week 15 match with the Kansas City Chiefs. There's a slight possibility the Raiders simply shut him down instead of rushing him back with a 4-8 record. Moore has 37 catches for five touchdowns and 569 yards in 10 games.

Fantasy impact: Andre Holmes will get the start opposite Rod Streater once again. Holmes was a pleasant surprise, grabbing seven catches and 136 yards on Thanksgiving. He's worth an add in deeper leagues, but won't be much more than a desperation play. He might keep the starting job even if Moore returns. If you're still owning Moore in re-draft leagues, it's time to cut bait.
