Moreau caught two passes on as many targets for 50 yards in Sunday's 35-32 overtime win over the Chargers. Despite fellow tight end Darren Waller's return from a five-game absence, Moreau managed to record his longest reception of the season with a 44-yard pickup on the Raiders' opening drive. He finishes the regular season with 30 catches for 373 yards and three touchdowns on 44 targets in 17 contests. The LSU product, who enters the final year of his rookie contract in 2022, will look to make an impact behind Waller in a wild-card matchup against the Bengals on Saturday.
Moreau recorded one reception on one target for nine yards in Sunday's 23-20 win over the Colts. Moreau served as the Raiders' top tight end once again in the absence of Darren Waller (knee/back/illness), though he failed to take on a significant role. His lone reception came on the team's final drive, though it did help move the ball down the field for the game-winning field goal. Looking ahead, Moreau could be even more limited in his role in Week 18 against the Chargers if Waller is ready to return to the field.
Moreau caught all four of his targets for 67 yards in Sunday's 17-13 win over the Broncos. He led the Raiders in receiving yards on the afternoon, although Zay Jones saw more targets and had more receptions, and Hunter Renfrow was on the other end of Derek Carr's only TD. Moreau has managed a respectable 14-145-0 line on 19 targets over the last three games, but his run of modest fantasy value could end in Week 17 if Darren Waller (knee/back) is ready to return to action.
Moreau is in line to continue to head the Raiders' tight end corps in Sunday's game against the Broncos, with Darren Waller (knee/back) inactive. With Waller missing his fourth straight game, Moreau will look to build off his effort in this past Monday's win over the Browns, in which he caught seven of his nine targets for 65 yards, while playing all 69 of the Raiders' snaps on offense. He figures to remain busy once again Sunday, with the team down another key pass catcher (Bryan Edwards/reserve/COVID-19 list) in addition to Waller.
Moreau (abdomen/thigh) was cleared from the injury report Friday, while teammate Darren Waller was listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against Denver. With Waller likely out for a fourth straight game, Moreau will look to pick up where he left off last week when he caught seven of nine targets for 65 yards in a win over Cleveland. The 24-year-old TE was less impressive the two weeks before that, catching only four of nine targets for 47 yards while playing 85 and 98 percent of snaps on offense. He's no Waller, of course, but Moreau has filled an every-down role nonetheless with his talented teammate unavailable.
