Sio Moore: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Moore is still recovering from the hip surgery he underwent in February, which GM Reggie McKenzie called a "major" operation. Though Moore could conceivably heal up in time to be on the field for the Raiders' regular season opener on Sept. 13, the GM's concerning dialogue regarding the linebacker's injury certainly doesn't seem encouraging. Moore, who recorded an impressive 90 tackles last season despite missing five games, will likely be replaced by Seahawks import Malcolm Smith, holdover Ray-Ray Armstrong, or rookie Neiron Bell on the weak side during camp.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Moore's season will come to a close after he made 90 tackles (67 solo) and recorded three sacks in just 11 games. Don't forget about him next season if you are in a fantasy league that uses IDPs.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Moore's absence from Sunday's game is good news for the Kansas City offense, as Moore has been one of the league's more promising young linebackers this year. Moore has 90 tackles (nine for a loss) and three sacks in just 11 games.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
After a rather unproductive start to his rookie campaign -- he recorded just six tackles (five solo) in his first five games -- Moore came on strong in the final two months, finishing the season with 50 tackles (38 solo) and 4.5 sacks in 15 games. Regardless of whether or not defensive coordinator shifts to a 3-4, Moore should see ample time yet again for Oakland, though he needs to establish himself a bit more before he's considered a legitimate IDP option.
A third-round pick out of Connecticut, Moore is a versatile linebacker who can cover the run and the pass. He can also get after the quarterback, as evidenced by the 14.5 sacks Moore posted in his final two college seasons. Moore's listed as No. 1 guy at strongside linebacker on the team's unofficial preseason depth chart, and he should remain there so long as he stays healthy.
