Found September 06, 2012 on Fantasy Football Champs:
Oakland Raiders wideout Denarius Moore (hamstring) practiced Thursday for the first time in more than a month, according to the Contra Costa Times. However, Raiders coach Dennis Allen said Moore is a "game-time decision" for Monday.Fantasy Spin:Moore could have a big season with Carson Palmer throwing him the football if he can stay healthy, but he has dealt with a hamstring injury since June. That's a major concern for someone who relies solely on his speed. Don't start him this week, especially since the Raiders are playing Monday night.
