Found October 16, 2012 on Fantasy Football Champs:
Oakland wideout Denarius Moore has obviously become the Raiders' No. 1 receiver based on Sunday's play (nine targets, 5 rec, 104 yards, 1 TD).Fantasy Spin:Despite the return of Darrius Heyward-Bey, Moore was Carson Palmer's favorite target for the fourth consecutive week. Moore leads the Raiders in targets with 35, in touchdown receptions (2) and is second on the team with 17 receptions and 287 yards despite missing the season opener. Moore's upside is huge if he can just stay healthy.

Raiders' secondary took step forward in loss to Falcons

To borrow from cliche, what didn't kill the Oakland Raiders' secondary has apparently made the unit stronger.

Taking it on the chin through the first four games of...

With the promising Jake Locker nearing a return, underachieving Titans running back Chris Johnson will rightfully become an afterthought in Tennessee

Considering that Chris Johnson has proven to be a bush league player, the thrifty Tennessee Titans will certainly never pick up the wannabe star’s $9 million option after this season. The 27-year-old Johnson, who the Titans (2-4) chose out of … Continue reading →
