Carolina Panthers wide receiver D.J. Moore should best be viewed as a low-end WR2 for this week. Moore hasn't been the most productive receiver for Carolina this season as Robby Anderson has emerged into a top option. Nevertheless, Moore's role is still decent as he has seen at least four targets in each game. There is no reason to discount the WR's value completely as he has still gotten over 90 yards in three games as well. That's enough to give him starting value against a New Orleans defense allowing the 11th-most points to fantasy WRs.
Carolina Panthers WR D.J. Moore ended up with five receptions for 93 yards on 11 targets in Week 6 against the Chicago Bears.
Fantasy Spin: That's three games in a row, and five of six overall, with at least four receptions, and he has 93 receiving yards in back-to-back games. He'll look to keep it cooking in Week 7 against the New Orleans Saints.
Carolina Panthers wide receiver D.J. Moore hauled in five of a team-high 11 targets for 93 receiving yards in a loss to the Bears. That's back-to-back games for Moore with 93 receiving yards, while the 11 targets were the second-most he's seen in game this season. It's possible that Moore is a turning a corner and it's good news for his fantasy prospects that he was able to succeed at the same time as fellow receiver Robby Anderson. The 23-year-old will look to stay involved in a potential high-scoring affair against the Saints in Week 7.
Carolina Panthers wide receiver D.J. Moore faces a tough test in Week 6 against the Bears. Chicago has surrendered the second-fewest fantasy points to enemy wideouts, though they've allowed the sixth-most targets. While Moore has taken a backseat to fellow receiver Robby Anderson, this certainly doesn't mean he's finished as a fantasy asset. His 37 targets place him among the NFL's top-20 and he's also coming off one of his finer efforts of the season, 4-93-1 against Atlanta. This certainly isn't an upside play, but Moore should see enough looks to warrant a start as a low-end WR2/high-end WR3.
Carolina Panthers WR D.J. Moore ended up with four receptions for 93 yards and a touchdown in Week 5 against the Atlanta Falcons on five targets.
Fantasy Spin: Moore scored for the first time in 2020. He has posted four or more receptions in four of his five outings while going for 49 or more yards in each game. Moore remains a solid WR3 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 6 against Chicago.
Carolina Panthers wide receiver D.J. Moore got four receptions for 93 yards and a score on five targets in the Week 5 win over Atlanta. Moore got most of his value for the day on a long touchdown catch. It's becoming apparent that Robby Anderson is the top target for Teddy Bridgewater, meaning Moore's value should hover around a WR2 going forward.
Carolina Panthers wide receiver D.J. Moore is a WR2 for this week. Moore has posted only 65 and 49 yards respectively in the past two games, which is certainly disappointing considering his role as the WR1 on the team. This has been due to the emergence of Robby Anderson. Nevertheless, the Falcons allow the 10th-most fantasy points to wideouts and have a very injured secondary, meaning this is a good chance for Moore to break out and have a big game.
Carolina Panthers wide receiver D.J. Moore had a quiet day in a win over the Cardinals. Moore was targeted six times and hauled in four passes for 49 receiving yards. The 23-year-old probably didn't benefit from Teddy Bridgewater's spread-the-ball-around approach, as he wasn't peppered with targets like he was in Week 2. Moore surprisingly took a backseat to both Robby Anderson and Curtis Samuel, though he clearly wasn't needed when the Panthers were up 28-7. The air yards and target share numbers support a future breakout, but it's fair for fantasy managers to wonder where said breakout is. Fortunately, Moore gets a bad Falcons Defense in Week 5. He's posted at least 50 receiving yards in three of four career games against Atlanta.
Carolina Panthers wide receiver D.J. Moore faces a tough matchup in Week 4 against Arizona. No team has allowed fewer fantasy points to the wide receiver position than the Cardinals, though fellow number-one wideouts Terry McLaurin and Kenny Golladay were able to post good numbers against this defense. Moore is of a similar talent level to those two and commands a whopping 49.4% of his team's targeted air yards, which ranks second in the league. The second-year pro also ranks 11th in the league in targets, so he's seeing ample opportunity. In a game where Carolina may be forced to throw more, fantasy managers can plug Moore in as a solid WR2 with upside.
Carolina Panthers wide receiver D.J. Moore finished Week 3 with two receptions and 65 yards on four targets. Though his receptions and targets may seem small, Moore still paced the team in yards. With a rich role as the WR1 on this team, his volume should remain stable. Therefore, the receiver remains a weekly starter.
Carolina Panthers WR D.J. Moore registered two receptions for 65 yards on four targets in Week 3 against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Fantasy Spin: Moore saw his lowest catch total, and he was back to an average receiving total after hitting the century mark in Week 3. He'll search for his first visit to the end zone in Week 4 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Carolina Panthers wide receiver D.J. Moore should be considered a high-end WR2 for this week's contest against the Chargers. As the WR1 on this team, Moore has proved he is worthy of his role, grabbing at least nine targets in two games and 120 yards in Week 2 as well. The Chargers present a tough matchup for opposing wideouts, but Moore's rich value on this offense makes him a worthy starter for this week.
Carolina Panthers wide receiver D.J. Moore enjoyed a nice bounce-back game in Week 2. Moore was targeted a game-high 13 times and hauled in eight of them for 20 receiving yards in the loss to Tampa Bay. While he has yet to find the end zone in 2020, he has seen elite-level volume in both games, as he has 22 targets so far. Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has a nice chemistry with Moore and should continue to look his way, particularly on the short and intermediate routes. Moore gets a good matchup in Week 3 against the Chargers, who have allowed a receiver to exceed 90 receiving yards in both of their games.
Carolina Panthers WR D.J. Moore racked up eight receptions for 120 yards on 13 targets in Week 2 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Fantasy Spin: Fantasy owners might still complain about the lack of touchdowns, but this was a markedly better showing that Moore's opening effort against Las Vegas Raiders. Moore remains a decent WR3 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams. The Panthers travel to meet the Chargers in Week 3.
Carolina Panthers wide receiver D.J. Moore could have a bounce-back performance in Week 2 against Tampa Bay. Moore was disappointing in Week 1, catching just four passes for 54 receiving yards, though he was targeted nine times. Moore will be just fine as a high-end WR2 most weeks if he continues to see that kind of volume in the passing game. This week presents a bit of a tough matchup against Buccaneers' cornerback Carlton Davis, who just held Michael Thomas (ankle) to three catches for 17 yards in Week 1. Still, Moore is talented enough to win this matchup and should have game script on his side, meaning more of an emphasis on the passing game for the Panthers. Consider him a solid WR2 this week.
Carolina Panthers WR D.J. Moore checked in with four catches and 54 yards on nine targets in Week 1 against the Las Vegas Raiders.
Fantasy Spin: Moore saw fellow wideout Robby Anderson go over 100 yards and score a touchdown, which fantasy owners cannot enjoy seeing. Don't worry, Moore will be just fine, and he remains a decent WR3/4 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 2 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Carolina Panthers wide receiver D.J. Moore had a quiet Week 1 to the 2020 season, getting four receptions on nine targets for 54 yards. Despite a high-scoring affair with the Raiders, it was Robby Anderson and Christian McCaffrey who shined instead of Moore. It was encouraging to see him lead the team in targets, but ultimately the wideout couldn't capitalize on the opportunities this week. Now, the WR1 of Carolina will look to get back on track against an improving Buccaneers secondary next week.
Carolina Panthers wide receiver D.J. Moore is a low-end WR1 for this week's matchup against the Raiders. Moore is coming off a breakout second season in which he had 135 targets, 87 receptions, and 1,175 yards. The Raiders ranked in the middle in terms of points allowed to WRs last season, but Moore's huge role in this passing offense keeps him in the WR1 tier this week, even with him having a new QB in Teddy Bridgewater.
Carolina Panthers WR D.J. Moore has been one of the standouts on offense during training camp, according to Jonathan Alexander of the Charlotte Observer. Per Alexander, Moore's route-running has been efficient and the bulk of cornerbacks he has faced 'have struggled to contain him.'
Fantasy Spin: This report probably doesn't come as much of a surprise to the majority of Moore's fantasy owners, but it does lend support to the possibility that he will push for 150-plus targets after amassing 135 in 15 games last year. With Curtis Samuel reportedly struggling and Teddy Bridgewater providing capable quarterback play, Moore could easily top 100 catches for an offense that will need to cover for what figures to be one of the worst defenses in the league. A top-five fantasy finish at receiver should not be ruled out.
Carolina Panthers WR D.J. Moore needs to be more imposing this season, according to new head coach Matt Rhule. 'DJ has to take another step this year and be that physical, dominant, go-to receiver that on third-and-5 you're going to,' Rhule said.
Fantasy Spin: Well, Moore won't have much competition to be the Panthers' go-to option this season. He topped 1,000 yards in his sophomore campaign but still scored just four touchdowns. Though quarterback play deserves a large share of the blame, he'll need to find ways to produce to live up to his billing as a top-tier WR2. Any risk associated with him is largely on his team as an expected bottom-feeder.
