Sio Moore Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Cardinals CB Marcus Cooper (back) and LB Sio Moore (ankle) are active for today's game against the Rams. Both players entered the day questionable but should be OK for IDP use.

The Cardinals on Tuesday placed LB Deone Bucannon on IR with an ankle injury. The team website lists Sio Moore -- previously with the Colts and Chiefs -- as the next guy up at Bucannon's spot. Moore has showed the ability to post numbers, but this isn't the time of year to bet on unknown playing time, especially for a guy who has already been dumped by 2 other teams this season.

The Colts on Friday traded a 6th-round pick to Oakland for LB Sio Moore. The former Raider finds himself initially blocked at ILB by D'Qwell Jackson and Jerrell Freeman, but both Colts vets stand on the wrong side of 30. Even if Jackson and Freeman both make it through this season healthy, Moore could get a shot at starting as soon as next year. He's not worth picking in your redraft IDP league, but don't quit on Moore in dynasty formats just yet. He produced whenever on the field for the Raiders.

The Raiders released their initial depth chart Monday, which included listing Khalil Mack at DE instead of LB. It's not a surprising move, as new HC Jack Del Rio's staff switches from a 3-4 base front to 4-3. It could prove quite important to IDP leagues, though, if any commish sites change Mack's designation to DL. He'd carry much more value at that lower-scoring position in general. The depth chart also lists MLB Curtis Lofton, SLB Ray-Ray Armstrong and WLB Malcolm Smith as the LB starters. That makes Sio Moore a 2nd-teamer. Del Rio downplayed the significance of the 1st depth chart, but we'll be curious to see how the LB picture develops. The new staff signed Lofton and Smith, while Armstrong joined the team via waivers in October.

The Raiders activated LB Sio Moore from the PUP list on Saturday, and he practiced with the team for the 1st time since last season. Moore had hip surgery this offseason, but his early-camp return bodes well. According to ESPN.com, Moore is expected to start in a LB corps that added Curtis Lofton and Malcolm Smith this offseason. That would position Moore as an upside pick once again in IDP leagues.

The Raiders signed LB Curtis Lofton on Tuesday to a 3-year, $18 million deal that included $10 million in guarantees, according to USA Today. The Saints had cut Lofton 2 days earlier to save cap space. Lofton has long been a strong run defender and will clearly man an inside spot in Oakland's D whether the Raiders settle into a 4-3 or 3-4 base. Lofton has generally produced low-LB2 to LB3 numbers for IDP fantasy football leagues and figures to remain in the same range. We'll see how the rest of the Raiders' LBs settle out. Khalil Mack headlines a group that added former Seahawks LB Malcolm Smith in free agency and retains Sio Moore. It's a talented group that might leave Moore without a starting job (judging by the new regime's early moves).

Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie said Wednesday that LB Sio Moore will miss all offseason workouts after having "major hip surgery," according to CSN Bay Area. "We'll be smart about it," McKenzie added. "We're going to let him rehab and get strong. Barring any setbacks, he should be ready by training camp." Moore suffered the injury in Week 13 last season, tried to play through it the following week and then hit IR. We'll be interested to see how close to full strength he is come training camp. Moore delivered terrific production when healthy last season, but an alarming number of injuries have marked his 1st 2 NFL years. Moore remains a nice dynasty asset, as long as the hip doesn't become a recurring issue.

The Raiders on Tuesday placed LB Sio Moore on IR with the hip injury that cost him Week 15. That ends a very productive 2nd season for Oakland's weak-side LB, setting him up as a potential perennial top-20 fantasy LB. Ray-Ray Armstrong, who Oakland picked up off waivers from the Rams early this season, sits behind Moore on the depth chart, but he's not really an option against the Bills this weekend.

12:37am EST 12/14/14

The Raiders have downgraded LB Sio Moore from questionable to out with his hip injury. It's a surprise because Moore was expected to play despite sitting out Friday's practice.

Raiders LB Sio Moore missed practice Friday and turned up questionable on the final injury report, but IDP owners should still have him available. Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle tweeted this Friday: "Linebacker Sio Moore didn't practice with a sore hip, and is listed as questionable on injury report. But he's playing." We'll certainly watch his game status Sunday, but expect to have Moore in your fantasy lineup for Week 15.

Raiders LB Sio Moore is questionable for Sunday's game against the Niners after a hip injury limited his practice time the past 2 days. Our guess is that he'll play, but we'll obviously have to watch his status come Sunday. The 4:25 p.m. ET start time limits the insurance options, but check the LB rankings for Raiders, Niners, Seahawks, Eagles, Patriots, Chargers, Falcons and/or Packers options.

Raiders OLB Sio Moore will make his return against the Chargers today. He had been out since Week 2 with an ankle sprain but put in limited practices all week coming out of the bye. Moore's strong fantasy start to the season makes him worth a shot right away in many IDP lineups.

Raiders OLB Sio Moore is officially questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers.  But Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that Moore will play unless he suffers a setback during Saturday's walkthrough.  An ankle sprain has kept the 2nd-year LB out since Week 2, but his big fantasy start to the year makes him worth getting back into most IDP lineups right away.  If your roster's deep, you could wait a game to make sure Moore is all the way back.

A day after working off to the side, Raiders LB Sio Moore returned to practice Wednesday.  He missed the past 2 games because of a sprained ankle but appears on track to play against the Chargers on Sunday.  Moore got off to a terrific fantasy start over the 1st game and a half this season and will be worth sticking back into many IDP lineups right away.  We've added him to our Week 6 IDP rankings and always kept him fairly high in the Rest of the Season rankings.

Raiders LB Nick Roach is inactive once again because of the concussion he suffered back in August.  OLB Sio Moore joins him on the sideline once again because of a hamstring injury.  Oakland will have LB Miles Burris in the lineup, however, despite his "questionable" tag for a foot injury that had him in a boot earlier this week.  Burris is easily the best tackle bet among Raiders LBs but not a high-ceiling IDP option this week.

Raiders LB Sio Moore had an MRI Monday on an ankle injury that came out of Sunday's loss to Houston.  InsideBayArea.com's Jerry McDonald reports, however, that the team will not update Moore's status until Wednesday.  The 2nd-year LB has enjoyed a strong start to the season for IDP owners.  We'll keep an eye on his situation as the practice week begins.

Raiders OLB Sio Moore sits atop the "unofficial" depth chart at weak-side LB on the team's official website.  The last update to that page came on Aug. 25, the day before Moore returned to practice following a neck strain in the 3rd preseason game.  We haven't seen an official announcement from the team that Moore beat out Miles Burris for the job, but it sure seems like Moore's the guy.  He carries intriguing upside into his 2nd season, with strong ability as a tackler and pass-rusher.  Moore ranked among the team's best defenders when on the field as a rookie last year but saw his playing time limited by injuries.  Look at more as a late target in your IDP draft or a guy to watch on the waiver wire.

10:45pm EDT 8/26/14

Raiders LB Sio Moore returned to practice Tuesday, just 4 days after leaving the team's 3rd preseason game on a stretcher with a neck injury.  HC Dennis Allen told reporters that Moore wasn't back to 100% Tuesday, but his sheer return was great news following a scary situation.  We'll see if Moore still has a shot to beat out Miles Burris for the weak-side job.  He's certainly the higher-upside IDP option.

Raiders LB Sio Moore left the field on a stretcher Friday night after an apparent neck injury.  Trainers immobilized him, but Moore did give a thumbs up as he was leaving the field.  The 2nd-year LB had been working with the 1st team while battling Miles Burris for the starting weak-side job.  We'll keep an eye on his situation and await the specific diagnosis.

UPDATE: NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports that Moore suffered only a neck strain and will fly home with his team.  We'll await word on how long he'll remain sidelined, but this is obviously great news after what looked like an ugly situation.

Raiders HC Dennis Allen told CSN Bay Area that he hopes to name his starting weak-side LB soon to give the player a chance to get comfortable in the defense before the season starts.  The coming week would be a good time for such a move, as the 3rd preseason game is the one in which starters play the most.  “No matter how that shakes out,” Allen said. “I think both of those guys are going to be able to help us this year.”  We moved LB Sio Moore well down the 2014 IDP rankings earlier this summer on reports that Miles Burris was leading the competition, but we still like Moore as the upside fantasy option here.  Either way, it'll be good to get past the uncertainty and evaluate what we really have.
