It appears that Raiders wide receiver Denarius Moore 's benching will last just one quarter. Moore was taken out of Sunday's loss to the Browns in the fourth quarter due to "performance issues. But the San Francisco Chronicle's Vic Tafur confimed Tuesday that Moore will start Thursday night against the Broncos.
Moore was a very consistent fantasy producer for most of the season, but he has taken a nosedive in the past three games, catching just four passes on 19 targets for 60 yards and a touchdown. Quarterback Carson Palmer has mentioned miscommunication between the two during recent games, and Sunday's benching may have been rock bottom. Maybe this lights a fire under Moore and he gets on a roll in December, but I'm not going to trust him Thursday with a matchup against Champ Bailey on tap. Moore is a low-end WR3 for Week 14.
