Player Outlook

Moore has been popular leading up to Fantasy drafts in years past, but he's never quite delivered on expectations. Despite three straight years with over 1,100 receiving yards (a huge accomplishment when you consider the quarterbacks he's played with), Moore has never averaged more than 14.9 points per game in PPR or 9.3 points per game in non-PPR. A big reason for it is a lack of touchdown production -- he's never had more than four in a year. Even in 2020 and 2021 when Christian McCaffrey missed so much time, Moore wasn't involved in red-zone work (13 targets). Only eight of his 14 career scores have come in the red zone, meaning he's only sporadically coming through with big plays for touchdowns while not cashing in enough when he's closer to the goal line. That's a bad combination only made worse by Carolina's expected troubles at quarterback to continue this season. Moore's a start-worthy Fantasy receiver in a rough situation, making him a preferred option in Round 4 in PPR drafts and Round 5 or 6 in non-PPR.

Player News
  • Moore is signing a three-year extension with the Panthers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Previously scheduled to play out 2022 on a fifth-year option, Moore is now signed with the Panthers through 2025. He's finished between 1,157 and 1,193 receiving yards three straight seasons, with exactly four TDs each year, but his per-target efficiency took a nose-dive in 2021 (57.1 percent catch rate, 7.1 YPT) with the Panthers offense hitting a new low point. On the bright side, Moore's 163 targets last season were a career-high by 28, and he could break out in 2022 if similar volume is accompanied by better quarterback play. At the moment, however, it looks like the Panthers have missed out on all the top veteran QBs available, perhaps forcing them to settle for a mediocre veteran or a rookie in the upcoming NFL Draft. Regardless, Moore is the clear top option in the passing game, rivaled only (at times) by RB Christian McCaffrey.

  • Moore caught three of eight targets for 29 yards in Sunday's 18-10 loss to the Saints. Moore led the Panthers in targets but couldn't get much going against a tough Saints defense. Most his yardage came on a 20-yard catch during the second half, but Moore followed that contribution with a drop shortly thereafter. Having racked up at least seven targets in every game this season, Moore figures to remain a focal point in Week 18's finale versus the Buccaneers. Although that matchup surely doesn't favor the Panthers, game flow might help Moore improve on Sunday's lackluster output.

  • Moore (hamstring) secured five of 11 targets for 55 yards in the Panthers' 32-6 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday. Considering the quarterback duo of Sam Darnold and Cam Newton completed less than 50 percent of their throws, Moore's numbers were actually serviceable. The fourth-year wideout tied Robby Anderson for the team lead in receptions and paced Carolina in targets on the afternoon as well. Moore's upside is likely to be capped to an extent the rest of the way with both Darnold and Newton seemingly destined to struggle, but he remains a serviceable option heading into the final two weeks of the fantasy season.

  • Moore (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Jonathan M. Alexander of The Charlotte Observer reports. Moore was listed as questionable heading into the weekend after not practicing Wednesday and Thursday before returning to the field in a limited fashion Friday. Though he didn't log a full practice this week, the Panthers haven't indicated that Moore will be subject to a lighter workload as a result. He'll likely be sharing the field with both Cam Newton and Sam Darnold at various points during Sunday's game, as head coach Matt Rhule indicated that both quarterbacks will pick up snaps.

  • Moore (hamstring) is expected to play Sunday against the Buccaneers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Moore was listed as questionable for the contest after returning to a limited practice Friday, but Rapoport indicates that the wideout is trending toward active status versus Tampa Bay. Fortunately for those considering Moore in Week 16 lineups, the Panthers kick off at 1:00 ET on Sunday.
