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.

Panthers' D.J. Moore: Season low in receiving
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore caught four of his six targets for 49 receiving yards during Sunday's 31-21 win against the Cardinals.

The Maryland product enjoyed a lucrative Week 2 outing against Tampa Bay, racking up eight catches for 120 yards on his 13 targets. In Moore's other three appearances of 2020, however, the 23-year-old wideout has accumulated 3.3 catches and 56 receiving yards per contest -- certainly not pedestrian production in the fantasy realm, but averages that would land him well short from his 87-catch, 1,175-yard campaign of 2019. Moore's next matchup offers a "get right" opportunity, as he faces a banged-up Falcons defense that entered Week 4 allowing the second-highest total of WR receiving yards (736).

Panthers' D.J. Moore: Makes two catches
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore caught two of four targets for 65 yards during Sunday's 21-16 win over the Chargers.

Moore struggled to break loose against a talented Chargers defense, although he did post a pair of big gains for all of his production on the day. The switch to Teddy Bridgewater under center has produced mixed results for Moore, who piled up 120 yards on eight catches a week ago and is still on pace for over 1,200 receiving yards through three games. He will look to get back on track next Sunday in what should be a more favorable matchup against the Cardinals.

Panthers' D.J. Moore: Explodes in Week 2 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore secured eight of 13 targets for 120 yards in the Panthers' 31-17 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday.

A week after an underwhelming season-opening effort that saw him post a 4-54-0 line, Moore once again saw plenty of attention heaped on him by new quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. To the delight of fantasy managers, the results were markedly different, with Moore posting game-high totals in receiving yardage and targets while tying for second in receptions. Through two contests, Moore has now logged a robust 22 targets, an encouraging sign for the trust and chemistry he's manufactured with Bridgewater. Moore will look to build on Sunday's strong effort in a Week 3 interconference road battle versus the Chargers.

Panthers' D.J. Moore: Held quiet in Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore saw nine targets but managed only four receptions for 54 yards in Week 1 against the Raiders.

Moore led the team with nine targets, but both Robby Anderson and Curtis Samuel saw only one fewer opportunity. Moore wasn't particularly efficient when the ball came his way, averaging just six yards per target. He is likely still gaining rapport with new quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and will be the focus of opposing defenses' gameplan. That may force him to make some adjustments early on this season, but he'll look to get on track in a Week 2 matchup against the Buccaneers.

Panthers' D.J. Moore: Surrounded by new faces
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore is one of the few key holdovers from 2019 for a Panthers team that underwent huge changes in the offseason, ESPN.com's David Newton reports.

The new faces include coach Matt Rhule, OC Joe Brady, QB Teddy Bridgewater and WR Robby Anderson, while the crucial departures on offense were TE Greg Olsen, WR Jarius Wright and QBs Kyle Allen and Cam Newton. The switch from Allen to Bridgewater could prove especially fruitful for Moore, who largely made a living on short and intermediate throws during a breakout 2019 campaign. The 23-year-old wideout missed the majority of Week 16 and all of Week 17 due to a concussion, but he previously had been on pace for 98 catches and 1,342 receiving yards. With plenty of time to recover this offseason, Moore should be ready to go whenever the Panthers are able to practice.

Panthers' D.J. Moore: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Saints, Max Henson of the Panthers' official site reports.

Moore was spotted working out on the side during practice Friday, but the Panthers still determined he wasn't on track to clear the NFL's concussion protocol in advance of Sunday's game. Shaky quarterback play wasn't enough to prevent Moore from enjoying a second-year breakout, with the 2018 first-round pick catching 87 passes for 1,175 yards and four touchdowns on 135 targets in 15 games. Prior to his early exit Week 16, the 22-year-old had ripped off seven games in a row with 75 or more receiving yards. Moore finishes with a 64.4 percent catch rate and 8.7 yards per target, despite playing in an offense that has completed just 61.0 percent of its passes for 6.6 yards per attempt. His ability to vastly outproduce the Carolina passing game as a whole bodes well for Moore's NFL future, though his ceiling for 2019 partially depends on what happens with the team's uncertain quarterback situation.

Panthers' D.J. Moore: Works out on side Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore (concussion) worked out on the side during Friday's practice, Alaina Getzenberg of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Moore's presence at practice hints toward some progression in the concussion protocol, but since he still wasn't working out with the Panthers' main group, he's looking likely to go down as a non-participant for the third consecutive day. The Panthers will reveal Moore's chances of playing in Week 17 when they release their final injury report of the season.

Panthers' D.J. Moore: Not practicing Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore (concussion) wasn't spotted at Thursday's practice, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

Moore is set to go down as a non-participant on the Panthers' first two Week 17 practice reports, indicating he hasn't made much notable progress through the NFL's five-step concussion protocol since sustaining the head injury in Sunday's loss to the Colts. The Panthers have little at stake in the season finale against the Saints, so there's a good chance that Moore ends up sitting out the contest even if his concussion symptoms dissipate as the weekend approaches.

Panthers' D.J. Moore: Fails to practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore (concussion) is listed as a non-participant Wednesday on the Panthers' estimated practice report, Alaina Getzenberg of The Charlotte Observer reports.

As his lack of listed activity suggests, Moore remains in the NFL's concussion protocol, per Getzenberg. Moore still will have two more opportunities to log some practice activity this week but will ultimately need to receive clearance from an independent neurologist to suit up in Sunday's season finale against the Saints.

Panthers' D.J. Moore: Still in protocol for head injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore remains in the concussion protocol as of Tuesday, Max Henson of the Panthers' official site reports.

Moore left Carolina's Week 16 loss at Indianapolis and eventually entered the protocol, so it's no surprise he still remains there two days later. According to Joe Person of The Athletic, Moore also wasn't spotted during the open portion of Tuesday's unofficial practice. The receiver seems to be trending in the wrong direction for an appearance Sunday against the Saints, but his activity level, if any, won't be revealed until the release of Wednesday's injury report.

Panthers' D.J. Moore: In concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore entered the concussion protocol in the midst of Sunday's game in Indianapolis.

Moore managed just one catch (on two targets) for one yard before his departure. Considering one game remains on the schedule, he may be hard-pressed to pass all five phases of the protocol and suit up next Sunday against the Saints. In Moore's absence, Curtis Samuel and Jarius Wright will be the Panthers' clear top wide receivers.

Panthers' D.J. Moore: Being examined for head injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore is under evaluation for a concussion during Sunday's game at Indianapolis, Bill Voth of the Panthers' official site reports.

Moore made a one-yard catch on the Panthers' first possession, but on his second target of the day on the team's next drive, he couldn't haul it in, took a hard landing and slowly got to his feet. He hasn't seen the field in the meantime and won't return if he's diagnosed with a concussion.

Panthers' D.J. Moore: Contributes 113 receiving yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore caught eight of 12 targets for 113 yards during Sunday's 30-24 loss to the Seahawks.

Moore led the team in targets and receiving yards yet again while tying Christian McCaffrey in receptions. He broke off a long gain of 22 yards and was used consistently with Carolina playing from behind all game. Moore has now topped the 100-yard mark four times over the last seven contests and is averaging an impressive 101.6 yards per game during that span. He will look to continue his breakout season next Sunday against the Colts.

Panthers' D.J. Moore: Continues to be high-floor option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore caught four of six targets for 81 receiving yards during Sunday's 40-20 loss to the Falcons.

Moore has been one of the surest stocks in fantasy football throughout the latter half of 2019, averaging 99.7 receiving yards per game, reaching the end zone three times and catching at least six passes in every game since Week 9. The upcoming matchup against Seattle is desirable in that the Seahawks entered Week 14 as a bottom-five defense with 269.3 passing yards allowed per game. However, Seattle's defense also is tied for sixth best in the NFL with just 1.2 passing touchdowns surrendered per game. Last Monday against Minnesota, Seattle's defense was able to hold the entire Vikings receiving corps to 111 yards from scrimmage and one touchdown.

Panthers' D.J. Moore: Scores for second straight game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore caught six of 12 targets for 75 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 29-21 loss to the Redskins.

Moore led the team in receiving yardage while trailing only Christian McCaffrey in targets. He scored a 13-yard touchdown in the first quarter, giving him three in the last two games after recording just one beforehand. Moore now has at least 70 receiving yards in seven of the last eight games and is averaging 103.4 yards per game over the last five. He'll look to keep it up in a favorable matchup against the Falcons next Sunday.

Panthers' D.J. Moore: Practices fully in return to team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore (ankle) was a full practice participant Thursday, Alaina Getzenberg of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Moore departed Wednesday's session early to attend the birth of his child but was back in action one day later, per Max Henson of the Panthers' official site. Following his return to the fray, Moore will turn his focus to Sunday's matchup with the Redskins, who have allowed 8.9 yards per target and 14 total touchdowns to wide receivers in 11 games this season.

Panthers' D.J. Moore: Nursing ankle issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore was limited in Wednesday's practice due to an ankle injury, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

Though the ankle issue was attributed to Moore on the injury report, Joe Person of The Athletic relays that the wideout left the practice session early to tend to a personal matter. With that in mind, it's possible that Moore's ankle injury wouldn't have prevented him from practicing fully had the personal situation not cropped up. In any case, Moore will have two more chances to prove his health in practice before the Panthers return to action Sunday against the Redskins.
