Lance Moore, who signed a five-year, $21.5 million contract to return to the Saints, is off to a sizzling start during training camp.

With Marques Colston having missed the past six practices while resting his surgically repaired right knee, Moore has taken over as Drew Brees' top target.

While Moore, who caught 66 passes for 763 yards and eight touchdowns last year, has been a favorite of Brees, he is getting even more passes thrown in his direction.

Throughout camp, he has beaten defenders across the middle and down the seams for big catches, including two touchdowns at the end of Thursday's practice. Moore appears poised for perhaps the best season of his career.

Fantasy Impact: 

As Colston continues to sit out of practice, Moore's stock continues to rise. He'll no longer be a sneaky pick in the later rounds. Fantasy owners will likely have to grab him in the 8th or 9th round in PPR formats.
