Bears send No. 1 overall pick to Carolina for WR D.J. Moore and picks

Sources say the Bears are trading the No. 1 overall pick to the Panthers in exchange for big-time compensation including multiple 1st rounders. Chicago loads up and lands at No. 9, while Carolina can draft its QB of the future.

Compensation update, per sources: Bears trading No. 1 overall pick to Carolina for:

-pick No. 9
-pick No. 61
-a first-round pick in 2024
-a second-round pick in 2025
-WR D.J. Moore

Fantasy Impact: 

Moore finally cracked the four-touchdown mark in 2022, but he only gained 888 yards receiving after three straight 1157+ yard seasons. In theory, Justin Fields represents an upgrade from the quarterbacks that have been throwing to Moore in recent years. His arrival is a downgrade for Darnell Mooney and Cole Kmet, though it was expected that the Bears would address the receiver position in a major way this offseason.
