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.

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.

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).

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 ESPN.com 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.

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 SilverAndBlackPride.com 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.

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.

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.

Oct 19, 2022 6:46 PM EST


Practices Wednesday

Moreau practiced Wednesday, Levi Edwards of the Raiders' official site reports.

Analysis: Moreau sat out back-to-back games due to a knee injury and is looking to make his return to game action following the Raiders' Week 6 bye. Before being ruled out for Week 5, Moreau returned to practice as a limited participant for the first time since the injury. His official participation Wednesday has yet to be released, but he'll likely need to log at least one full practice before being cleared for Sunday's matchup against the Texans.

Oct 19, 2022 12:40 PM EST


Inactive Monday

Moreau is inactive for Monday night's game against the Chiefs.

Analysis: With Moreau unavailable, look for Darren Waller to log the bulk of the Raiders' tight end snaps Monday, with Jesper Horsted in reserve. Moreau will now target a potential return to action in Week 7, following his team's bye week.

Oct 10, 2022 4:02 PM EST


Questionable for Monday

Moreau (knee) is questionable for Monday's game against the Chiefs, Josh Dubow of The Associated Press reports.

Analysis: Moreau did manage to practice in limited fashion Saturday, his first practice in two consecutive weeks, but it's entirely possible the tight end could still be unavailable for the AFC West divisional matchup. Starting tight end Darren Waller is a full go for the prime-time matchup, which will likely limit whoever ends up as the No. 2 option come Monday.

Oct 8, 2022 2:10 PM EST


Still not practicing

Moreau (knee) didn't practice Wednesday, Tashan Reed of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Moreau picked up the knee injury during the team's Week 3 loss to the Titans and has yet to practice since. He's trending towards a second straight absence, but he'll have to more opportunities to return to practice before the team needs to make a decision on his status for Week 5. If he's ruled out again, expect Jesper Horstead to continue operating as the top backup behind Darren Waller.

Oct 5, 2022 12:52 PM EST


Ruled out for Week 4

Moreau (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's contest against the Broncos, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Moreau didn't practice all week due to a knee injury he presumably picked up during the team's Week 3 loss to the Titans, so it's not surprising to see him ruled out. In his absence, Jesper Horsted is expected to operate as the backup tight end behind Darren Waller, while Cole Fotheringham could be elevated from the practice squad.

Sep 30, 2022 2:36 PM EST


Remains sidelined

Moreau (knee) was unable to practice Thursday, Tashan Reed of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Moreau missed his second consecutive practice leaving his status for Sunday against the Broncos in question. The fourth-year tight end will likely need to participate in some fashion tomorrow, or he'll likely be trending much closer to doubtful for the contest. If he is unable to play, Jesper Horsted will slide up to the No. 2 tight end spot behind Darren Waller, while a practice squad elevation of Cole Fotheringham would be likely.
