You’re starting Oakland Raiders receiver Denarius Moore this week against the Minnesota Vikings, right?
You’re starting Oakland Raiders receiver Denarius Moore this week against the Minnesota Vikings, right? You’re just reading this because you need confirmation that it’s the right play for one of your fantasy WR spots in Week 11.
I understand. It’s a great play for you to make for a few of reasons before we even get to the he-is-good part.
Some of these NFL Super Bowl contenders are pretenders
There are contenders and there are pretenders, and sometimes this late in the season it’s impossible to separate the two. One moment a team like the Buffalo Bills can look like the best team in the AFC East. The next their fast start can fall like a house of cards.
Will the speedy Raiders receiver live up to his hype?
Oakland Raiders coach Hue Jackson raved about speedy receiver Jacoby Ford in the offseason, saying he had the potential to be a standout No. 1 receiver.
Ford did show his knack for racking up big yards in just a few catches last week against Denver’s suspect pass defense. In Carson Palmer’s first start as the Oakland QB, he targeted Ford six times and the former Clemson standout pulled down five of them for 105 yards and a score.
Which back up running back will do better on the first Thursday night NFL game?
The first Thursday night game of the NFL season is just a day away, and there are plenty of early choices you need to make about your fantasy rosters this week — namely Michael Bush or Mike Tolbert in the battle of No. 2 running backs.
So Carson Palmer is the Oakland Raiders’ quarterback now. What does that mean for fantasy players?
Carson Palmer was the 13th best fantasy quarterback in 2010, averaging 17.6 points per game. He was the 15th best fantasy QB in 2009 at 15.9 points per game. That gives one optimism that he can still be serviceable. Just how serviceable is what we all want to know.
This may go down as one of the worst trades in history
Carson Palmer is finally out of retirement and no longer a Bengal after the Al Davis-less Raiders traded two first round draft picks (one of them conditional) to Cincinnati.
I guess Al Davis lives on.
Let's get this straight. The Oakland Raiders gave up two first rounders (ostensibly selling their future) for a quarterback who hasn't played in over a year. And when he did play the last two years, he wasn't actually "good."
The Oakland Raiders owner was a three-time Super Bowl winner and American icon.

Al Davis was born in Plymouth County, Mass., on the Fourth of July in 1929, just three months before the start of the Great Depression. From that day until his passing on Saturday, Oct. 8 of this year, Davis was the personification of the American dream — fighting his way to the top through hard work, savvy business moves and an unwavering belief in himself and the team he assembled.
