Draft note
by John Paulsen
Moore began his rookie season playing about 25% to 50% of the snaps, but once the Panthers gave him starter snaps (70%+), his production spiked to 4.2-60-.10 or 9.7 PPG in half-PPR scoring, which are low-end fantasy WR2 numbers. Since 2000, Moore was the 13th rookie receiver who posted at least 700 receiving yards at 21-years-old. The other 12 receivers saw an average per game increase of 30% in targets, a 33% increase in receptions, a 28% increase in yards and a 19% increase in touchdowns. When these increases are applied to Moore’s rookie numbers, he’s looking at a 73-catch, 1004-yard, 2.4-touchdown season as a sophomore. That’s about what he averaged in the final 10 games from a fantasy points standpoint, so he probably has some room to grow from there, especially if his touchdowns regress positively to the mean for someone getting his sort of usage. If he’s able to score 7-8 touchdowns and keep up that production, he’s looking at a midrange WR2 season.

CAR WR D.J. Moore - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

D.J. Moore had seven catches for 76 yards against the Rams last week in the season opener. He was second on the team with 10 targets, and although he lost a fumble, it was good to see him heavily involved in the passing game. Moore should continue to be featured in the Panthers offense, and Cam Newton seems to trust him.

This week, Moore faces a Buccaneers defense that struggled all last season, but really dominated the 49ers last week. George Kittle led San Francisco with a mere 54 receiving yards. Whether the Tampa defense is truly improved or not may not matter much if Moore continues to get the kind of targets he did to start the season, however, and fantasy owners should consider him a high-end WR2 option in what could be a good matchup.
