Friday update: Moore is apparently being benched for requesting a trade, per Mike Garafolo. Denzel Mims, who also requested a trade, will be active in his place.

New York Jets wide receiver Elijah Moore isn’t at practice today. Head coach Robert Saleh told reporters that is an excused absence and that he’s taking a personal day to tend to something involving his family, per Rich Cimini.

This absence comes at the heels of Moore complaining about his lack of targets last week, so there was speculation that his absence had something to do with that. It appears that it does not.

Fantasy football implications for Week 7

At this point, there doesn’t seem to be any worries that he will miss this week, but the lack of work is concerning for his fantasy production. Until we see him get more involved, he probably should remain on your fantasy benches.
