Chase Claypool should get the most run with Mooney's absence considering they just made a move for him but the modest target share could be spread around the team's mediocre fantasy options. It's possible rookie Velus Jones gets more run as the season wraps up.
CHI WR Darnell Mooney - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 12 at New York Jets
Darnell Mooney had a decent outing last week, finishing 4-29-1 on five targets. He nearly had a huge game as he broke wide open on what would have been a 67-yard touchdown, but Justin Fields overthrew him. Mooney's ceiling is always going to be capped when Justin Fields is averaging less than 150 pass yards per game. There just aren't many yards to go around. But Mooney has been successful in his limited opportunities, especially after his slow start through the first three weeks. From Week 4 through Week 11, Mooney has been WR22 in PPR scoring. He's been a fairly consistent low-end WR2 to high-end WR3, which is where he'll be in a Week 12 matchup vs. the Jets. Although it is a tough matchup as the Jets have given up the 5th-fewest average fantasy points to opposing WRs.
