Every week I will take a look at the rookie players to gage how some of the rookies were used. Then I will try to decide if these rookies are worth picking up from your waiver wire or if you should try to trade for them.

Denarius Moore exploded with 5 receptions for 123 yards and 2 TDs in this year’s first Thursday night game.  What was most encouraging is that most of his production came after Jacoby Ford came out of the game.  Moore handled the #1 coverage and made some spectacular catches.  Carson Palmer has a great arm to take advantage of his athletic gifts and I think we are only seeing glimpses of what Denarius Moore could be.

Fellow rookie Vincent Brown also had a good Thursday night game as he was Phillip Rivers most targeted receiver with 9 throws.  Brown caught 5 for 97 yards and 1 TD.  He isn’t very fast, but his route running was on the money and he showed an acrobatic catch or two in his first start. For the rest click here:
