Give it to him Moore

One of the biggest stories out of Raiders training camp was wide receiver Denarius Moore. The fifth-round pick out of Tennessee was one of my favorite sleepers in the preseason and after a Week 1 with no catches, Moore was inserted into the starting lineup with Darrius Heyward-Bey and  Jacoby Ford both out due to injury.

Moore should remain in the starting lineup. His talent was evident with five catches for 146 yards with a TD, including a terrific 50-yard TD grab where he made a leaping catch in double coverage. He also had a 25-yard run on a reverse. Moore has excellent speed and good hands and the ability to score whenever he touches the ball.
Moore will be one of the hot waiver wire adds this week. I'd add him in all leagues. I was able to get him in my dynasty auction rookie draft and he was one of my main targets. There's a lot of upside and while rookie receivers and the Raiders passing game can be inconsistent, I'd still add Moore because he could be a breakout player.
