Denarius Moore WR OAK 9 Days

Moore hauled in his lone target for nine yards in Sunday's 31-28 loss to the Chargers.

A resident of former coach Dennis Allen's doghouse, Moore was to be given a "clean slate" under interim coach Tony Sparano, but he remained an afterthought Sunday. Offensive coordinator Greg Olson, who has also been critical of Moore's focus and attention to detail, is still calling the plays for the Raiders, and Andre Holmes has emerged as a viable option in the passing game, so Moore seems unlikely to return to any sort of prominent role in the near future.

Moore will be given a "clean slate" under interim coach Tony Sparano, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Former coach Dennis Allen praised Moore prior to the start of the regular season for his consistency throughout the exhibition slate, but it took the 25-year-old wideout less than a month to fall out of Allen's good graces. Moore hauled in just 8 of 20 targets for 60 yards through the first three games, with a ball bouncing right off his hands and right to a defender as the Raiders were driving into New England territory for a potential game-tying score in Week 3. He was then a healthy scratch in Week 4, but it sounds like Moore will get a chance to play Sunday against the Chargers, though it's uncertain how involved he'll be. Offensive coordinator Greg Olson has also been critical of Moore's focus and attention to detail.

Moore is inactive for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Moore slots in as a healthy scratch Sunday, with Andre Holmes and Vincent Brown on track to see added looks in Week 4, with Rod Streater out.

Moore hauled in just three of seven targets for 23 yards in last Sunday's loss to the Patriots.

Through three games this season, Moore is averaging just three yards per target (20 targets, 60 yards), with a long of 12 yards. Rod Streater's foot injury would seem to open the door for Moore to see increased looks, but coach Dennis Allen suggested it will be Andre Holmes who takes over the starting role opposite James Jones. Further, Allen pointed to the likes of Vincent Brown and Brice Butler as candidates for larger roles, while failing even mention Moore.

Moore caught three passes on five targets for 29 yards in last Sunday's loss to the Texans.

Moore now has just five receptions on 13 targets through two games this season. Target efficiency has always been an issue for Moore, but it's still rather discouraging, after coach Dennis Allen praised him for showing more consistency in the preseason. Regardless, Moore was on the field for 73 percent of the team's offensive snaps Sunday, and if Rod Streater (hip) is forced to sit against New England, Moore could step into the starting role opposite James Jones.

Moore saw a team-leading eight targets but caught just two passes for eight yards in Sunday's loss to the Jets.

Moore and quarterback Derek Carr were out of sync all day, not only failing to connect on several deep passes but on many short patterns as well. Coach Dennis Allen praised Moore for his consistency and the "different demeanor" he showed in the preseason, but Sunday's performance represented a step back for the fourth-year wideout. While the high volume of targets was an encouraging sign, Moore's upside will be curtailed until he's able to bring that consistency from the preseason into meaningful games.

Raiders coach Dennis Allen lauded Moore's consistency in the preseason, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. "[Moore], I think, has really kind of gotten back to where he was maybe a couple of years ago when we first got here," Allen said Tuesday. "I saw a different demeanor out of Moore this year and he's been a lot more consistent. I think he's beginning to take that next step, which is a really positive sign."

Believed to be on the roster bubble early in camp, Moore now appears firmly locked in as the Raiders' No. 3 wideout after a strong preseason, which was capped off by a 58-yard, two touchdown performance last Thursday. Most of those yards came on a 36-yard pass from nearly anointed starter Derek Carr, whose strong arm should at least allow the speedy Moore to continue hitting the occasional home run, even if the efficiency issues persist. "I was worried about being the go-to guy, building up that pressure on myself when I didn't have to," said Moore.

Moore caught two passes for 46 yards on three targets in Friday's preseason game against the Packers.

Moore drew a pair of pass-interference penalties, but he also appeared to get away with one of his own on a 40-yard reception. After seeing his role come into question a few weeks ago, Moore is the clear favorite to enter Week 1 as the Raiders' No. 3 wide receiver. With Matt Schaub looking awful through three preseason games, Moore probably won't find that role to be very fruitful.

Working as the No. 3 wide receiver, Moore caught one pass for eight yards on his only target in Friday's preseason game against the Lions.

Last week, Moore was speculated to be on the roster bubble, while Andre Holmes was a threat to James Jones' playing time. This week, Moore was back as the third receiver, while Holmes was banished to playing with the third-team offense. The Raiders have good competition going, but it seems to be more a result of frustration with certain players than anything else. Rod Streater is apparently above the fray, and James Jones should be safe as the other starter. Moore can be considered the favorite for the No. 3 role, but it won't be all that surprising if he falls back down the depth chart.

Moore, who is listed third on the depth chart at one of the wide receiver spots, caught all three of his targets for 28 yards in Friday's preseason opener against the Vikings.

According to ESPN's Paul Gutierrez, Moore may even be on the roster bubble. While Friday's performance was a step in the right direction, it increasingly seems that Oakland's top three wideouts will be Rod Streater, Andre Holmes and James Jones in some order. Moore, Greg Little and Juron Criner worked with the second-team offense Friday night. Matt McGloin to Brice Butler was all the rage in the fourth quarter.
