Raiders expect WR Denarius Moore, K Sebastian Janikowski to play Week 1

Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen gave encouraging reports Sunday on a couple of important players offensive players. He said wide receiver Denarius Moore @DenariusMoore is expected to be ready for the start of the regular season despite a hamstring injury that has held him out of all preseason games thus far.
"If he continues to improve like he has the last couple of days, he'll be ready to go," Allen said of Moore during a conference call with reporters.
Kicker Sebastian Janikowski should be joining him. He left Saturday's game against Detroit with what looked to be a hamstring or calf muscle pull. But Allen said that wasn't the case.
"He's a little tight, but it doesn't seem to be any real pull (or) defect in the muscle or anything like that, so I don't anticipate it being a big deal," Allen said of Janikowski.
Allen said his "assumption" is Janikowski will be ready by Sept. 10.

Fantasy Analysis:

I know Sebass isn't technically an offensive player, but from a points perspective, he is valuable to that offense. He is FFToolbox's No. 3 kicker. I'll never get him in a draft, because I don't take a kicker until the very final round. But you know he is a good one.
I think Moore can still be the Raiders' No. 1 WR; you may just have to wait a few weeks for him to find his football legs. Take him as a high-upside pick late in your draft.
