2014 Fantasy Football: A Trade For Denarius Moore May Increase His Fantasy Stock
WR Denarius Moore may not be with the Oakland Raiders much longer. Rumors have been swirling that the Raiders would like to find a trade partner for Moore, especially if they end up drafting an instant impact receiver like Sammy Watkins in the NFL draft.
After Moore finished the 2013 season with 47 catches for 695 yards and five touchdowns in only 13 games. The team appears to be getting fed up with the inconsistent production and his inability to stay on the field in the past couple of seasons.
At this point, it appears that a change of scenery for Moore might be the best thing for him. The wide receiver was hot and cold all throughout last season, which didn’t make him an attractive fantasy option throughout most of the year. Part of Moore’s statistical deficiencies in 2013 can be heaped on the fact that the Raiders struggled with a bit of quarterback inconsistency throughout the year. Is it possible that a move for Moore would reignite his career and his fantasy value?
In his rookie year, Moore finished with an average YPC of 18.7, so there should be no doubt that he has the ability to become a decent WR-3 or WR-4 in fantasy. Moore is only 25 years old and has proven that he could be a legitimate deep threat. He has also shown the potential to be a 1,000-yard receiver in the near future as well.
Despite his past inconsistencies, a move to greener pastures may be exactly what Moore needs to become a consistent fantasy wide receiver in 2014.
