The Raiders are shockingly thin when it comes to playmakers. So the last thing they need is their best wide receiver regressing after a small breakout in 2012. But that seems to be happening in camp, according to CSN Bay Area's Scott Bair. He wrote Thursday that Denarius Moore has been the most frustrating player in training camp.
"Moore still makes great plays, but he makes an equal number of inexcusable mistakes," Bair wrote. "(Head coach Dennis) Allen wants a No. 1 receiver to emerge, and Moore seems an excellent candidate to fill that void. Thus far, it hasn't happened."
We've heard about Moore's inconsistency before. Moore was a bona fide fantasy starter for a short time last season. But he has four catches in three preseason games, and all of this bad press coupled Oakland's putrid quarterback situation makes me want to stay very far away from Moore. He has a current 10th-round ADP in 12-team leagues, but I would rather own Kenbrell Thompkins, Ryan Broyles, Rueben Randle and others in that range instead.
Oh, and here's more good news for the Raiders: No. 2 wideout Rod Streater had to leave Friday's preseason game because of a head injury. It could be a concussion. I'm sure we'll have more on that on Saturday.
