Panthers' DJ Moore: Gets fifth-year option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Panthers are exercising their fifth-year option on Moore's rookie contract, keeping him under team control through 2022, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

This was a foregone conclusion, with Moore producing 3,156 receiving yards and 234 rushing yards before his 24th birthday. He's scored only 10 touchdowns in 46 games, but the yardage should eventually translate to more trips to the end zone, especially if the Panthers can find a franchise QB. The team has Sam Darnold, P.J. Walker and Will Grier under contract ahead of the 2021 NFL Draft.

Panthers' DJ Moore: Sets new single-season yardage mark
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore caught five of 11 targets for 101 yards during Sunday's 33-7 loss to the Saints.

Moore, who was targeted early and often with his team playing from behind, finished with his fourth 100-yard game of the season. In the process, he surpassed his career high in receiving yardage set last season and has now flirted with 1,200 yards in each of the last two campaigns. This steady production has come despite many changes to the Panthers' offense, indicating that the third-year man's skillset is an enduring one. Moore will look to take another step forward next season for what should be a potent unit if Christian McCaffrey (thigh) can turn in a full year's worth of production.

Panthers' DJ Moore: Turns in uninspiring Week 16 effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore recorded five receptions on 10 targets for 37 yards in Week 16 against Washington.

Moore commanded double-digit targets for only the second time in his last eight games. However, he lacked any explosive plays as the Panthers largely managed the game and Teddy Bridgewater rarely successfully pushed the ball downfield. As a result, Moore's longest reception of the day went for only 14 yards. He'll look to bounce back in a Week 17 matchup against the Saints.

Panthers' DJ Moore: Excels in return to action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore (ankle) brought in six of eight targets for 131 yards and a touchdown in the Panthers' 24-16 loss to the Packers on Saturday night. He also rushed once for one yard.

Moore returned from a one-game absence due to an ankle injury and a stay on the reserve/COVID-19 list in spectacular fashion, putting a punctuation mark on his season-high yardage total with a key 40-yard reception late in the fourth quarter that got the Panthers down to the Packers' 15-yard line. Moore led Carolina's pass catchers in receptions and receiving yards while checking in second only to Curtis Samuel in targets. The 23-year-old appeared to be back to full health, so he'll look to help fantasy managers again in their postseason matchups versus Washington in a Week 16 battle on Sunday, Dec. 27.

Panthers' DJ Moore: Clear for Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore (ankle) had his roster exemption lifted Thursday, clearing him for Saturday's game in Green Bay, per the NFL's transaction report.

Moore was included on the Panthers' last two Week 15 practice reports as limited for a non-injury-related reason, likely as a way to ease him back in after a stay on the reserve/COVID-19 list and the ankle injury that he suffered before the Panthers' Week 13 bye. Now that he'll be available, he could be in line for a bit more work than usual with the status of Curtis Samuel (hamstring) in question for Saturday.

Panthers' DJ Moore: Will play this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Matt Rhule said Moore (ankle) will play in Saturday's game against the Packers, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.

Moore sprained his ankle prior to the Panthers' Week 13 bye, then landed on the reserve/COVID-19 list ahead of the team's Week 14 loss to the Broncos. After sitting out that contest, he was removed from the list Wednesday, returning to practice as a limited participant. The Panthers are listing Moore's limitations as "non-injury-related," so he should be ready for his usual workload this weekend.

Panthers' DJ Moore: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Panthers activated Moore (ankle) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

Moore is set to practice Wednesday, but the extent of his activity won't be known until the Panthers release their first Week 15 report later in the day. The report will also clarify whether the wideout is past an ankle issue that he had been dealing with prior to landing on the COVID list. In the last two games he suited up, Moore combined for 11 catches for 188 yards on 20 targets.

Panthers' DJ Moore: Expected to come off COVID list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore (ankle) is expected to be removed from the reserve/COVID-19 list in time for Saturday's game against the Packers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Moore missed last weekend's 32-27 loss to the Broncos while on the COVID list, but it looks like he's on track to rejoin teammates in the near future. The 23-year-old hasn't actually had a chance to resume practicing since suffering a sprained ankle Week 12, but it appears as though his physical health has been trending upward.

Panthers' DJ Moore: Not expected to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore (ankle) isn't likely to be removed from the reserve/COVID-19 list before Sunday's game against the Broncos, according to David Newton of ESPN.com.

Fellow wide receiver Curtis Samuel was removed from the list Friday, along with LB Shaq Thompson and DL Derrick Brown. On the other hand, Moore and DT Zach Kerr remain on the list, so they may not be able to play Sunday. Between the Week 13 bye and his current issue, Moore hasn't had a chance to practice since he sprained his ankle at the end of Carolina's Week 12 loss to Minnesota.

Panthers' DJ Moore: Ankle trending in right direction
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Matt Rhule said Monday that Moore, who was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list, is trending in the right direction in terms of rehabbing his ankle, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports.

Moore appears to have made the most of Carolina's bye week while working to recover from his sprained ankle, but it'll be a moot point as far as his Week 14 availability goes unless he can also return from the COVID list. If Moore is deemed a close contact and is able to return negative tests for five consecutive days, he could be eligible to return in time for Sunday's game against the Broncos. Fellow starting wideout Curtis Samuel (undisclosed) also hit the COVID list Monday.

Panthers' DJ Moore: Hitting COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Panthers will place Moore (ankle) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Moore's status for Week 14 was already up in the air due to an ankle injury, and his placement on the COVID-19 list represents a significant new hurdle ahead of Sunday's game against the Broncos. Unless the third-year wideout is able to clear all the protocols prior to the contest, as well as prove his ankle is in good shape, the Panthers will be forced to proceed without a key offensive weapon. Moore hitting the COVID-19 list means that he's either returned a positive test, or came into close contact with someone who did.

Panthers' DJ Moore: Could return after bye
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Matt Rhule said that Moore (ankle) isn't ruled out to return against Denver in Week 14, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports.

Moore was forced out of Sunday's narrow loss to the Vikings late in the fourth quarter, after he landed awkwardly on his right ankle while trying to adjust to an overthrown deep ball in the end zone. The third-year wideout has since had X-rays done Monday, the results of which revealed that he's avoided any sort of severe injury, such as a fracture. If he's able to make substantial progress during Carolina's Week 13 bye, it appears possible that Moore could avoid missing any time.

Panthers' DJ Moore: Injures ankle Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore injured his right ankle near the end of Sunday's 28-27 loss at Minnesota, Alaina Getzenberg of The Charlotte Observer reports.

On third-and-goal just after the two-minute warning, Moore landed awkwardly on his right leg after attempting to make a leaping grab in the end zone. He required assistance to get off the field and was unable to return, ending his day with four catches (on nine targets) for 61 yards. The Panthers have a Week 13 bye on tap, so Moore will have two weeks to recover before the team's next game, which will come Sunday, Dec. 13, against the Broncos.

Panthers' DJ Moore: Excellent chemistry with Walker
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore secured seven of 11 targets for 127 yards in the Panthers' 20-0 win over the Lions on Sunday. He also rushed once for 21 yards.

A week after a resurgent 96-yard receiving effort against the Buccaneers, Moore one-upped himself while pacing the Panthers in receiving yardage and targets. The 23-year-old recorded a game-high 52-yard grab along the way while displaying a strong connection with spot starter P.J. Walker. Moore's 100-yard receiving effort was only his second of the season, with the other having come Week 2 versus Tampa Bay. He'll look to continue his recent surge with either Teddy Bridgewater (knee) or Walker under center in a Week 12 road battle with the Vikings.

Panthers' DJ Moore: Paces pass catchers in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore brought in four of seven targets for 96 yards and a touchdown in the Panthers' 46-23 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday.

The third-year pro equaled his combined catch total from the prior two games with Sunday's haul, while also exceeding his yardage tally from that span by 23 yards. The latter figure also led the Panthers for the afternoon, with the highlight of the contest coming on a 24-yard touchdown scamper off a receiver screen late in the first quarter. Moore's score was his first since Week 7, and he'll look to stay hot in a Week 11 battle against the vulnerable Lions defense.

Panthers' DJ Moore: Second straight disappointing day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore secured two of three targets for 18 yards in the Panthers' 33-31 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday.

Moore was a forgotten man in the passing game despite Teddy Bridgewater putting the ball up 49 times, leading to the receiver's second straight underwhelming effort. Moore now has back-back two-catch tallies, while his target count Sunday qualified as his lowest of the campaign. The return of Christian McCaffrey, who drew 10 targets, played a part in Moore's downturn in involvement Sunday, and with the star back having suffered a rib injury in the closing seconds of the contest, it's possible the third-year wideout enjoys a more expanded role Week 10 against the Buccaneers.

Panthers' DJ Moore: Quiet until late in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore brought in two of six targets for 55 yards in the Panthers' 25-17 loss to the Falcons on Thursday night.

Moore was uncharacteristically blanked until the 2:58 mark of the fourth quarter, when he made a 13-yard grab on the first play of the Panthers' final possession. Moore would also come down with a clutch 42-yard catch in traffic with just 1:47 remaining for his second and final reception of the night. The catch tally matched a season low for Moore, while his targets were relatively modest for the second straight game after he'd logged five looks against the Saints on Sunday. Moore will look to reclaim his big-play downfield role in a Week 9 contest that should provide a suitable environment for an aggressive offense, as Carolina will travel to Kansas City to face the Chiefs on Sunday, Nov. 8.

Panthers' DJ Moore: Pair of scores in Week 7 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore secured four of five targets for 93 yards and two touchdowns in the Panthers' 27-24 loss to the Saints on Sunday.

Despite checking in third in receptions on the team for the afternoon, Moore set the pace in receiving yards, largely due to a game-long 74-yard grab that went for an early second-quarter touchdown. He added a seven-yard scoring catch shortly before halftime, with the pair of trips to the end zone counting as his second and third of the campaign. Moore now has three consecutive 93-yard tallies, and he'll look to boost that up enough to eclipse the century mark for the second time this season when he sees the vulnerable Falcons secondary in a Thursday night Week 8 divisional battle.

Panthers' DJ Moore: Paces team in receiving Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore secured five of his 11 targets for 93 receiving yards during Sunday's 23-16 loss to Chicago.

The 23-year-old wideout has been coming on strong following a slow start to the 2020 campaign, as he has amassed exactly 93 receiving yards in each of his past two outings after only once surpassing 65 yards between Weeks 1 and 4. Moore has just one touchdown through the first six weeks of the season, though he wasn't necessarily being counted on for rampant TD production after scoring four times on 87 receptions a year ago. His 11 targets are an encouraging sign as Moore prepares for a Week 7 matchup against a New Orleans defense that allowed Chargers WR Mike Williams to explode for 109 receiving yards and two TDs in its last game Oct. 12.

Panthers' DJ Moore: Secures first TD catch of 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore caught four of five targets for 93 receiving yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 23-16 win against the Falcons.

The 2018 first-round pick continues to play second fiddle to Robby Anderson in the Carolina passing attack, as Anderson was two targets short of tripling Moore's share against Atlanta. Regardless, Sunday's outing is encouraging for GMs with investment in Moore, as he corralled his first touchdown from Teddy Bridgewater while registering his second-highest yardage total of 2020. A Week 6 matchup against the Bears provides incentive to consider alternative options as Chicago has allowed an NFL-low one receiving TD to opposing wideouts while ranking as a top-10 pass defense overall.
