Dolphins' Matt Moore: Draws Week 12 start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jay Cutler has not cleared the NFL's concussion protocol, so Moore is slated to start Sunday's game against the Patriots, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Overall, the Patriots are allowing a league-high average of 282.0 passing yards per game, but they've been tightening things up on defense of late, so this is not necessarily a great matchup for Moore. In relief of Cutler in Week 11's 30-20 loss to the Buccaneers, Moore completed 17 of 28 passes for 282 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions. He's an option for those scrambling for Week 12 QB help, or looking a low-priced option to roll with in daily formats.

Dolphins' Matt Moore: Still viewed as backup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dolphins coach Adam Gase suggested Monday that Moore will remain the backup if Jay Cutler (concussion) is healthy enough to play Week 12 against the Patriots, James Walker of reports.

Gase apparently isn't buying into the idea of a quarterback controversy, perhaps remembering Moore's calamitous performance as the starter in a 40-0 loss to the Ravens back in Week 8. Moore undeniably has been effective as a mid-game replacement for Cutler on two occasions this season, highlighted by his 282 passing yards in the second half of Sunday's 30-20 loss to the Buccaneers. While Cutler's seat undoubtedly is getting warm, it sounds as if Moore will only get the Week 12 start if his teammate fails to clear the concussion protocol in time for Sunday's game.

Dolphins' Matt Moore: Piles up yards in emergency duty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore completed 17 of 28 passes for 282 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions in Sunday's 30-20 loss to the Buccaneers. He netted zero yards on his sole rush.

Taking over for an injured Jay Cutler (concussion) to start the second half, Moore led the Dolphins on a nine-play, 70-yard drive that culminated in a Cody Parkey field goal to open the third quarter. He repeated the feat on Miami's next possession, helming an 11-play, 66-yard march that consumed nearly five minutes. Moore subsequently capped off a five play, 74-yard possession by hitting Kenny Stills with a game-tying 61-yard touchdown with three minutes remaining. While the defense ultimately failed to prevent the Buccaneers from positioning themselves for a game-winning field goal, Moore certainly looked considerably more effective than Cutler, who'd thrown three first-half interceptions. Moore had been serviceable in spot duty in two previous games this season, but Sunday's effort was on another level altogether. Consequently, it's conceivable that head coach Adam Gase could opt to turn to him in a Week 12 divisional clash against the Patriots, irrespective of Cutler's health.

Dolphins' Matt Moore: Dismal in Week 8 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore completed 25 of 44 passes for 176 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions in Thursday's 40-0 loss to the Ravens.

Moore averaged a meager 4.0 yards per attempt and saw both of his interceptions returned for touchdowns by C.J. Mosley and Jimmy Smith in the fourth quarter. The veteran signal caller couldn't get much going with his receivers until garbage time, and Kenny Stills was the only Dolphins pass catcher to have a double-digit YPC by game's end. Granted, Jay Cutler has looked equally bad at times this season, so Moore's performance wasn't exactly the only factor making the team utterly non-competitive in the contest. That said, latest reports project Cutler being available for a Week 9 Sunday night matchup versus the Raiders, so Moore's short-lived starting tenure is likely over at this point.

Dolphins' Matt Moore: Likely starter for Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dolphins head coach Adam Gase said Monday that he expects Moore to start the Dolphins' Week 8 game Thursday against the Ravens with Jay Cutler (ribs) unlikely to be available, Jason Lieser of The Palm Beach Post reports.

Cutler exited Sunday's 31-28 win over the Jets in the third quarter after being taken down hard to the ground, with a follow-up MRI determining that he suffered two fractured ribs. Moore sparkled in relief of Cutler to lead Miami to a comeback victory, completing 13 of 21 passes for 188 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. It's not believed that Cutler's injury will result in an extended absence, but Gase was unwilling Monday to commit to the incumbent automatically gaining the starting job back upon his return to full health. With Cutler sitting on an unremarkable 78.8 quarterback rating through his six starts, Moore could end up holding down the starting gig beyond Week 8 if he's able to provide the Dolphins with better play behind center.
