Davante Adams is the king of targets for the Raiders. There is no denying that. But like a knuckleball pitcher who sneaks in the occasional straight pitch, Las Vegas occasionally targets someone else. For all the criticisms of Derek Carr, one thing he will consistently do is target the open man. This week, that man could well be Moreau. Coach Josh McDaniels’ offenses have been tight end friendly in the past. This year really isn’t any different. The problem has been keeping a healthy tight end.
With Darren Waller still out of the mix, Moreau should see a steady target share. He’s had at least four targets in six of the seven games he’s appeared in this season. In Week 12, the Raiders head to Seattle to face a Seahawks defense that has had plenty of issues with tight ends. The ‘Hawks are allowing the second-most fantasy points per game to the position and are being attacked by tight ends in the red zone. If Seattle’s offense continues to score as it has, the Raiders should be forced into a pass-heavy game script, meaning more chances for Moreau to get on the board.
