Raiders WR Denarius Moore probable, expected to be limited
The Raiders are desperate for a down-the-field threat with speed after quarterback Carson Palmer did his best Trent Edwards impersonation in Week 1 (18 targets to Darren McFadden). Looks like Oakland will have its main such guy available Sunday against the Dolphins as wide receiver Denarius Moore is listed as probable on the injury report. If he is active this weekend, Moore will see his first game action of any kind this year as he's been dealing with a right hamstring injury since June minicamp that forced him to miss all preseason games.
This is fantastic for the Raiders' passing game and fantasy owners. I think Moore can be a solid WR3 in time. But for right now, give him a week or two to get re-accustomed to the speed of the game and shake off the rust. He's probably going to be on a snap count this week.
