Panthers' D.J. Moore: Paces pass catchers in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore hauled in seven of 10 targets for 73 yards and rushed once for 13 yards in the Panthers' 37-26 win over the Buccaneers on Sunday. He exited the game due to a rib injury at one point but eventually returned, Max Henson of the team's official site reports.

Moore turned in a rock-solid performance in the London clash, pacing the Panthers in receptions, receiving yards and targets in the process. The second-year wideout encouragingly has logged 18 targets over the last two games, which he's parlayed into 13 receptions and 164 yards. Moore thus heads into the bye week with plenty of momentum and a burgeoning rapport with quarterback Kyle Allen, both of which he'll look to continue cultivating against the 49ers in Week 8.

Panthers' D.J. Moore: Hauls in six passes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore hauled in six of his eight targets for 91 yards in Week 5 against the Jaguars.

Moore took advantage of his most targets with Kyle Allen under center by turning in his highest yardage total of the season. While he wasn't able to find the end zone, his effort was highlighted by a 52-yard pass deep down the left sideline, which he converted by leaping over A.J. Bouye. Most encouraging was Moore's involvement in the offense; he had just seven targets combined between Allen's previous two starts. He'll look to build on the performance in Week 6 as the Panthers take on the Buccaneers in London.

Panthers' D.J. Moore: Trio of grabs in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore brought in three of five targets for 44 yards in the Panthers' 16-10 win over the Texans on Sunday.

Moore finished with a modest stat line overall, as second-year quarterback Kyle Allen focused heavily on Christian McCaffrey through the air. Moore has seen only seven combined targets over the two games thus far that have featured Allen under center, compared to the 24 looks he logged across the first pair of contests of the season when Cam Newton (foot) was at the controls. The 2018 first-round pick is capable of much more than the four receptions and 96 yards he compiled over Weeks 3 and 4, so he'll look to improve his chemistry with Allen during the practice week ahead of a Week 5 home game against the Jaguars.

Panthers' D.J. Moore: Hauls in big TD pass
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore caught one of two targets for a 52-yard touchdown in Sunday's 38-20 win over the Cardinals.

While Curtis Samuel saw a lot more volume with seven targets, Moore was nearly as productive with his lone catch, hauling in his first score of the season. Having Kyle Allen under center instead of a banged-up Cam Newton (foot) did wonders for the Panthers' passing game in general, but it may not bode well for Moore's long-term production (should Newton be forced to sit multiple games) after the second-year receiver saw 24 targets in the team's first two games. There's no timetable for Newton's return to action, so Moore may need to establish a better rapport with Allen quickly if he's going to regain his prominence in the offense.

Panthers' D.J. Moore: Team-high catches, targets in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore brought in nine of 14 targets for 89 yards in the Panthers' 20-14 loss to the Buccaneers on Thursday.

Moore paced the Panthers in receptions and targets during the disappointing defeat, although his 9.9 YPC left much to be desired. The 2018 first-round pick has already been the recipient of 24 targets from Cam Newton across the first pair of contests, parlaying them into a team-leading 16 grabs. Although he's been unable to shake loose downfield thus far, Moore will inevitably hit on some big plays if he continues to see a similar level of volume. He'll look to extend his strong start to the season in a Week 3 battle against the Cardinals a week from Sunday.

Panthers' D.J. Moore: Fumbles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore caught seven of 10 targets for 76 yards during Sunday's 30-27 loss to the Rams. He lost a fumble during the contest.

It wasn't the best season debut for the sophomore receiver as he lost a fumble during a catch-and-run during the season's opening drive. Moore recovered to finish the game second in catches, targets, and yards behind Christian McCaffrey. McCaffrey and veteran tight end Greg Olsen figure to have games in which they lead the way in targets, but Moore -- absent many proven commodities at receiver -- should follow close behind and get more opportunities for yards downfield in what may be a more pocket-focused Carolina attack. Next up is division foe Tampa Bay on Thursday night.

Panthers' D.J. Moore: Gets first target
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore caught one of his two targets for three yards in Thursday night's 10-3 preseason loss to the Patriots.

Moore's reception came on Carolina's first passing play of the game, but he only featured for 17 snaps total. While it wouldn't be surprising if he sits out next week's exhibition finale, perhaps the most pressing storyline surrounding the Panthers' top receiving target is the health of quarterback Cam Newton, who suffered a sprained ankle Thursday. Moore's upside would be maximized by a fully fit Newton, so the latter's status could be worthwhile to monitor ahead of the regular season.

Panthers' D.J. Moore: Nabs eight-yard pass
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore caught one of three targets for an eight-yard gain during Friday's 27-14 loss to the Bills.

All three of Moore's targets came during Carolina's opening three drives with Kyle Allen at quarterback. That's a difficult place from which to evaluate. On one hand, it's good to see Moore involved early. On the other, it doesn't mean much if Cam Newton isn't throwing him the ball. Whether Moore is stepping into a true WR1 role should become a little clearer Thursday against the Patriots, with Newton expected to suit up.

Panthers' D.J. Moore: Vying for leading role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore is among the leading candidates to be the Panthers' top wide receiver in 2019, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports. "There's really no clear-cut No. 1," Moore said during OTAs. "You have me, Curtis and J-Wright out there right now. ... That 'No. 1' thing is really out the window."

It'll be difficult to supplant Christian McCaffrey as Cam Newton's primary read after the running back led all players at his position with 107 catches last season. Also hurting Moore's cause is the Panthers moving on from one specific wideout termed the "No. 1." The decision was precipitated by Devin Funchess' back injury, which plagued the previous leading man from Week 12 onward in 2018. Funchess has moved on to the Colts via free agency, freeing up his 6.3 targets per game from the past two years. A first-round pick last year, Moore will attempt to improve upon his rookie mark of 5.1 looks per game as he battles McCaffrey, Curtis Samuel, Greg Olsen, Jarius Wright and Chris Hogan for slotting in the Panthers' passing attack. Assuming Moore experiences even a modest uptick in his target share, his peripherals as a pro (14.3 YPC, 9.6 YPT, 67.1 percent catch rate) indicate a breakout is possible.

Panthers' D.J. Moore: Ends 2017 with some highlights
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore caught four of eight targets for 81 yards during Sunday's 33-14 win over the Saints.

After a few slow weeks, Moore showed off his big-play potential Sunday, skying over Marshon Lattimore in the second quarter to haul in a 38-yard pass, setting up another Carolina touchdown. Moore started and ended the season slow, but the latter can be attributed, at least in part, to Cam Newton's sore shoulder and the revolving door at quarterback that followed. So long as Newton is healthy in 2019, Moore has had some nice rookie moments from which to build.

Panthers' D.J. Moore: Limited to 19 yards in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore caught two of seven targets for 19 yards during Sunday's 24-10 loss to Atlanta.

Sunday was Moore's first game without at least 25 total yards since Week 3. With Cam Newton shut down for the season and Taylor Heinicke and Kyle Allen in at quarterback, the Panthers leaned heavily on do-it-all back Christian McCaffrey. The seven targets show that the Panthers tried to get the ball to their rookie first-round pick, but it's fair to assume that Heinicke and Moore haven't practiced much together this season. They'll have to develop that chemistry and quickly as Week 17's opponent, the Saints, held Moore to two catches in Week 15.

Panthers' D.J. Moore: Coughs it up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore caught two of three targets for 12 yards and rushed once for 22 yards before losing a fumble in Monday night's 12-9 loss to the Saints.

Moore was kept very quiet as quarterback Cam Newton posted a season low in passing yards. With little happening through the air, Moore couldn't help but turn in his worst receiving performance since Week 9. Even when the rookie ripped off a long run during the third quarter, it took a turn for the worst, as Moore was stripped and lost his third fumble of the year. All in all, it was a forgettable outing, and considering Newton's shoulder complications of late, it'll be interesting to see just how much Carolina's passing game can improve in the final two weeks of the regular season.

Panthers' D.J. Moore: Five catches in Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore caught five of eight targets for 67 yards in Sunday's 26-20 loss to Cleveland.

Moore was Carolina's third-leading receiver behind Curtis Samuel (80 yards) and Ian Thomas (77 yards), though the team was unable to score a receiving touchdown in this one. Quarterback Cam Newton came into this contest riding an 11-game streak with multiple passing scores, so the rookie wide receiver out of Maryland will have a nice opportunity to build on his season total of two touchdowns when the Panthers host an exploitable Saints secondary in Week 15.

December 2, 2018 08:24 PM
Panthers' D.J. Moore: Limited to 44 receiving yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore caught four of eight targets for 44 yards and carried two times for an additional 21 yards during Sunday's 24-17 loss to the Buccaneers.

Moore enjoyed a healthy share of the targets, but he failed to connect with Cam Newton on several occasions. His long gain went for just 16 yards, though he was able to bolster his total output with his contributions as a rusher. Moore came in with 248 receiving yards over his previous two contests, so this lackluster effort against a beatable Tampa secondary comes as a bit of a surprise. He'll look to get back on track in Week 14 against the Browns.

Panthers' D.J. Moore: Tops 90 yards as No. 1 receiver
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore caught eight of nine targets for 91 yards and added a seven-yard carry in Sunday's 30-27 loss to the Seahawks.

Moore was Carolina's clear-cut No. 1 wide receiver with Devin Funchess (back) unavailable, topping 90 receiving yards for the second consecutive week and third time in the past five. The rookie first-rounder is progressing nicely, just in time to help fantasy owners make a late push. With an exploitable Buccaneers secondary on the docket in Week 13, Moore could make his way into quite a few fantasy lineups at this critical juncture.

Panthers' D.J. Moore: Sets career bests in Week 11 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore brought in seven of eight targets for 157 yards and a touchdown in the Panthers' 20-19 loss to the Lions on Sunday.

The rookie set career highs in receptions, targets and receiving yards, while also finding the end zone for the first time since Week 2. Moore's eight-yard touchdown grab with 1:07 remaining brought the Panthers within one, but a subsequent two-point conversion pass attempt to Jarius Wright fell incomplete. Although the afternoon was certainly a disappointment from a team perspective, Moore's performance was a welcome sight from a fantasy one after he had totaled just 36 combined receiving yards over the prior two games. He'll look to build on Sunday's effort against the Seahawks in Week 12.

Panthers' D.J. Moore: Another quiet performance in Week 10 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore brought in four of five targets for 20 yards and rushed once for five yards in the Panthers' 52-21 loss to the Steelers on Thursday.

Moore put together his second consecutive modest performance after generating some buzz in fantasy circles with a five-catch, 90-yard effort versus the Ravens two games ago. The rookie simply couldn't get anything going down the field Thursday, and with one of his receptions going for 11 yards, he averaged a minuscule three yards per grab on his other three. The Panthers' pass distribution continues to heavily center on Christian McCaffrey and Greg Olsen most weeks, making Moore, regardless of his undeniable upside, hard to trust from game to game. He'll look to get his numbers back up versus the Lions in a Week 11 tilt on Nov. 18.

Panthers' D.J. Moore: Underwhelms in Week 9 start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore brought in one of two targets for 16 yards, added 32 rushing yards on his sole carry and fumbled once in the Panthers' 42-28 win over the Buccaneers on Sunday.

Big things were anticipated from Moore in his second straight start in place of Torrey Smith (knee), but he provided only modest production. The rookie surprisingly was targeted just twice, as Cam Newton focused heavily on both Christian McCaffrey and Greg Olsen in the passing game. Moore will look to bounce back with a more productive performance in a Week 10 Thursday night battle against the Steelers, a game that Smith may be hard-pressed to be ready for.

Panthers' D.J. Moore: Primed for another start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore should maintain a significant role in the Carolina offense with Torrey Smith (knee) ruled out for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.

Moore took full advantage of Smith's absence last week against a tough Ravens defense, catching five of six targets for 90 yards and adding 39 yards on two carries as his snap share spiked to a season-high 71 percent. The rookie gets a much softer matchup Sunday, giving him a nice opportunity to continue making a case for a key role in the offense even after Smith returns. In any event, Smith could have a tough time making it back in Week 10 with the Panthers traveling to Pittsburgh for a Thursday night game.

October 29, 2018 09:40 PM
Panthers' D.J. Moore: Totals 129 yards in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore caught five of six targets for 90 yards and added 39 yards on two carries in Sunday's 36-21 win over the Ravens.

Moore was promised a larger role with Torrey Smith (knee) out, and the rookie delivered with the biggest game of his young career. He tied for the team lead in targets and was far and away the Panthers' leader in receiving yards on the day. The 2018 first-round pick also accounted for Carolina's two biggest gains in the contest, with a 33-yard deep ball in the second quarter and a 28-yard gain on the ground after recovering a Cam Newton fumble nine yards behind the line of scrimmage a short time later. While that kind of rushing output shouldn't be expected to continue, a Week 9 tilt with a weak Tampa Bay defense should make Moore a viable start, especially if Smith is forced to miss more time.
