Moore caught a 14-yard pass on his lone target in Thursday's win over the Eagles. From Weeks 5 to 10, Moore found the end zone four times in five games. In the two games since, he has just two catches off of three targets. The Lions appear to be more of a two-receiver team under new offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter, heavily relient on the backs and tight ends. During Thursday's game, Moore's 23 total snaps trailed that of fullback Michael Burton, according to Pro Football Focus. He should remain out of lineups until further notice.
Moore recorded a 14-yard catch on his only target before leaving Thursday's win over the Eagles with an ankle injury, the Detroit News reports. Thanks to the Lions' short week, Moore's ankle will be afforded some added healing time in advance of the team's Dec. 3 contest against the Packers. The veteran wideout enjoyed a bit of a roll earlier this season, but he's now logged two straight quiet fantasy efforts.
Moore caught one pass off of two targets for 21 yards in Sunday's win over Oakland. Moore had scored touchdowns in four of five games entering Sunday, but delivered his second worst performance of the season against the Raiders. Moore has developed a rapport with Matthew Stafford, leading the Lions in touchdown catches. Without touchdowns, however, Moore doesn't have much value, tallying more than three catches in a game just twice all year. His nose for the end zone makes him an intriguing player, but his lack of supplemental production limits him to a buyer-beware pick-up.
Moore three passes off of six targets for 29 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over Green Bay. Through nine games, the Lions' leader in receiving touchdowns is not Calvin Johnson or Eric Ebron or Golden Tate. It's Lance Moore. Moore, who caught all of eight passes during the first four games of the season, has now scored in four of the Lions' last five games. The veteran slot man has topped 55 yards just once this season, but may be worth a pickup in case he's able to keep up his scoring pace.
Moore caught three passes off of three targets for 29 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to Kansas City. Moore turned up the right sideline during a Matthew Stafford scramble, hauled in the pass and rolled into the end zone for the Lions' only touchdown of the game. He is now tied with Calvin Johnson and Eric Ebron for the team lead in touchdowns with three. Moore came aboard to provide a veteran presence to the Lions' offense and to help his teammates with former offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi's scheme. Instead, the 32-year-old slot man has become a scoring threat and a deep target, his six catches of 20 or more yards ranking second on the team behind Johnson's eight.
