Doing everything at Saints' OTAs

Moreau (illness) participated in Tuesday's OTAs practice, Ross Jackson of Saints News Network reports.

Analysis: Moreau was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma earlier in the offseason but is already doing "everything" at practice, per Jackson. He ran routes and caught passes at Tuesday's session. Moreau should be a fixture in New Orleans' offense after inking a three-year, $12.234 million deal to compete with Juwan Johnson for No. 1 tight end duties. Moreau, of course, already has familiarity with new Saints QB Derek Carr from their time together with the Raiders.

Links up with Saints

Moreau (illness) agreed to terms with the Saints on a three-year, $12 million contract Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Moreau's diagnosis of Hodgkin's Lymphoma was initially discovered during a routine visit with New Orleans during the early portion of free agency, and he now ultimately signs with the same team. Per Jeremy Fowler of, Moreau's recovery is progressing positively and he plans to play in 2023. He could play a significant role in a tight end corps also headlined by Juwan Johnson and Taysom Hill.

Season-high 55 yards in loss

Moreau caught all three of his targets for 55 yards in Sunday's 37-34 overtime loss to the 49ers.

Analysis: Moreau managed to post a season-high 55 receiving yards despite fellow tight end Darren Waller also erupting for 72 yards and a score on three catches. Moreau actually out-snapped Waller in the contest, but the latter remains a more legitimate receiving threat ahead of the Raiders' Week 18 tilt against the Chiefs.

Headed back to No. 2 role

Moreau is expected to move back to the No. 2 role at tight end Sunday against the Patriots after the Raiders activated Darren Waller (hamstring) from injured reserve Saturday, Paul Gutierrez of reports.

Analysis: Even if Waller is some kind of snap-count restriction in his first game since Week 5, his return in any capacity is still likely to push Moreau off the fantasy radar in most leagues. While serving as the Raiders' starting tight end in each of the team's last eight games, Moreau played at least 90 percent of the offensive snaps on every occasion while stringing together a 19-242-2 receiving line on 37 targets. In the three games this season in which both he and Waller have been available, Moraeu has handled snap shares between 32 and 62 percent while drawing eight total targets.

Held catchless Thursday

Moreau failed to catch his only target in Thursday's 17-16 loss to the Rams.

Analysis: Moreau posted a complete dud in what could turn out to be his last chance as the Raiders' No. 1 option at tight end this season, with Darren Waller (hamstring) possibly on track to return from injured reserve Week 15 against the Patriots. Regardless, Moreau hasn't caught more than three passes in a single contest since Week 8.

Makes 32-yard grab in win

Moreau caught one of three targets for 32 yards in Sunday's 27-20 win over the Chargers.

Analysis: Moreau briefly exited Sunday's contest in the first half to be evaluated for a concussion, but he returned in a timely fashion to ultimately play 55 of the Raiders' 61 offensive snaps. However, he's now been held to just one reception in two of the team's past three games. Fellow tight end Darren Waller (hamstring) is eligible to return from IR in Week 14, but his availability for Thursday's tilt against the Rams is in question given the quick turnaround.

Returns to Sunday's game

Moreau returned to Sunday's game against the Chargers after being evaluated for a concussion.

Analysis: Good news for the Raiders, who entered the game shorthanded at tight end, with Darren Waller (hamstring) on IR and Jesper Horsted out with a concussion.

Dec 4, 2022 2:22 PM EST

Evaluated for concussion

Moreau is being evaluated for a concussion during Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Analysis: Prior to his exit Sunday, Moreau did not record a catch. In his absence, Jacob Hollister is slated to handle the Raiders' tight end duties versus Los Angeles.

Hauls in clutch TD in OT win

Moreau caught three of seven targets for 33 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 40-34 overtime win over the Seahawks.

Analysis: The tight end had trouble converting his opportunities early but Moreau came through when it counted, hauling in a five-yard toss from Derek Carr in the back of the end zone with just under two minutes remaining in the fourth quarter to send the game to OT. Moreau has two touchdowns on the season, both coming in the last three games, and with Darren Waller (hamstring) out for at least one more week he'll head up the depth chart once again in Week 13 against the Chargers.

Nov 27, 2022 7:02 PM EST

Non-factor in win

Moreau recorded one catch on three targets for 33 yards in Sunday's 22-16 win over the Broncos.

Analysis: Moreau earned his fewest targets since Week 1 and was held without a catch until the second play in overtime. He did make the most of his one reception and now has one gain of 20 or more yards in each of his last three games. Entering Sunday's matchup, Moreau had recorded multiple receptions in each of his last six games, though he's failed to produce many big performances in the absence of Darren Waller (hamstring).

Nov 20, 2022 7:34 PM EST

Scores first TD of year

Moreau caught three of four targets for 43 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 25-20 loss to the Colts.

Analysis: With Darren Waller (hamstring) on injured reserve, Moreau once again served as the Raiders' top tight end and hauled in his first TD of the year on a four-yard toss from Derek Carr in the second quarter. Moreau has caught multiple passes in six straight games, although that streak was interrupted by a two-week absence due to a knee injury, and he figures to have a larger role in the offense again in Week 11 against the Broncos.

Gets longer leash as top tight end

Moreau is expected to serve as the Raiders' top tight end for at least the team's next four games following Darren Waller's (hamstring) placement on injured reserve Thursday, Paul Gutierrez of reports.

Analysis: Waller has been sidelined since exiting early in a Week 5 loss to the Chiefs with a strained left hamstring, and though he had been a limited participant in practice as recently as Wednesday, he clearly wasn't making as much progress as the Raiders had opened. Las Vegas will opt to shut Waller down for the next month with the hope that it allows him to return for the stretch run of the season in optimal health, but his continued absence in the meantime clears the way for Moreau to dominate the reps at tight end. While Waller was sidelined for the past three games, Moreau logged snap shares between 96 and 100 percent in each of those contests while stringing together a 11-101-0 receiving line on 19 targets.

Nov 10, 2022 12:09 PM EST

Manages 42 yards

Moreau recorded two receptions on five targets for 42 yards in Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Jaguars.

Analysis: Moreau was the Raiders' primary tight end for the third consecutive game in the absence of Darren Waller (hamstring). He did the majority of his damage on a 30-yard reception early in the second quarter, which helped set up a long touchdown pass to Davante Adams. In the last three games without Waller, Moreau has seen a minimum of five targets -- though that's translated to only 101 total yards.

Draws another start

Moreau is slated to serve as the Raiders' starting tight end Sunday at Jacksonville with Darren Waller (hamstring) inactive for the contest, Bill Williamson of reports.

Analysis: Though Waller practiced on a limited basis throughout the week, the Raiders aren't taking any chances with their top tight end, who will miss his third consecutive game. Moreau proved to be an adequate fill-in option in the previous two contests, putting together a 9-59-0 receiving line on 14 targets between those games. The 25-year-old looks like a low-end startable tight end in the majority of fantasy leagues this week.

Nov 6, 2022 9:01 AM EST

Makes six grabs

Moreau caught six of nine targets for 31 yards in Sunday's 24-0 loss to the Saints.

Analysis: Moreau started with Darren Waller (hamstring) sidelined. Although his yardage wasn't anything special, Moreau led the Raiders in targets and ranked second in receptions. A capable fill-in player, Moreau's stock in Week 9's matchup versus the Jaguars will depend on whether Waller can return or not.

Oct 30, 2022 1:48 PM EST

In line to fill in for Waller

With Darren Waller (hamstring) inactive, Moreau is in line to see added tight end snaps Sunday against the Saints.

Analysis: With Waller out in Week 7, Moreau caught three of five targets for 28 yards in last weekend's 38-20 win over the Texans. The 2019 fourth-rounder thus represents a Week 8 fantasy lineup option for those who roster Waller or are otherwise scrambling for short-term TE help.

Oct 30, 2022 8:51 AM EST

Five targets in win

Moreau caught three of five targets for 28 yards in Sunday's 38-20 win over the Texans.

Analysis: Moreau drew the start at tight end in his return from a two-game absence while Darren Waller (hamstring) remained on the shelf, and the former finished the contest behind only Davante Adams in targets for the Raiders. Moreau's increased involvement should continue against the Saints in Week 8 if Waller is limited or absent.

Oct 24, 2022 8:20 AM EST

Set for more work in Week 7

Moreau (knee) doesn't have a designation for Sunday's game versus the Texans, Rachel Gossen of the Raiders' official site reports.

Analysis: Coming off a two-game absence and with the benefit of Las Vegas' Week 6 bye, Moreau put himself in position to return to action this weekend with a full practice Friday, which followed back-to-back capped sessions to start the week. With Darren Waller (hamstring) not playing Sunday, Moreau is in line to take on the bulk of the TE reps for the team this weekend. In his three appearances this season, Moreau notched a 6-74-0 line on eight targets, of which the latter mark should increase in the short term.

Oct 21, 2022 2:14 PM EST

Still limited at practice

Moreau (knee) logged another limited practice Thursday, Rachel Gossen of the Raiders' official site reports.

Analysis: With back-to-back limited sessions under his belt, Moreau is trending in the right direction ahead of Sunday's game against the Texans. Meanwhile, Darren Waller missed his second straight practice with a hamstring injury. If Waller ends up out this weekend, Moreau could be a decent Week 7 streaming option if he's cleared to play versus Houston.

Oct 20, 2022 3:10 PM EST

Limited during practice Wednesday

Moreau (knee) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Tashan Reed of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Despite coming off a bye week, Moreau was once again limited in practice after missing the Raiders' last two games with a knee injury. The 25-year-old was similarly able to return to practice in a limited fashion before sitting out Las Vegas' Week 5 loss to the Chiefs. Moreau will look to increase his practice activity either Thursday or Friday, or else the Raiders may be extremely thin at tight end, as starter Darren Waller sat out practice Wednesday with a hamstring injury.
