Draft note
by John Paulsen
In his second season, Moore finished with 87-1175-4 on 135 targets and a No. 18 finish at his position in half-PPR formats, and that was with Kyle Allen mainly throwing the ball. The Panthers have upgraded to Teddy Bridgewater, added Robby Anderson and lost Greg Olsen, so there are some moving parts surrounding Moore, who should continue to be the alpha dog in the receiver room. It doesn’t look like the Panthers’ defense will improve much this season, so Carolina may be playing from behind early and often again this year. I’m expecting some growing pains as Moore and Bridgewater try to get on the same page, but Moore has already proven that he can produce with iffy quarterback play.

Scouting report

CAR WR D.J. Moore - 2020 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside

D.J. Moore had a sort of breakout year in his sophomore season, putting up 1,175 yards on 87 receptions despite catching passes from Kyle Allen for the bulk of the season. Gone is Allen, and in comes Teddy Bridgewater, who should provide an upgrade, at least in efficiency. Moore’s ability to succeed with bad quarterback play dates back to his college days at Maryland, and it’s a testament to his talent. There’s reason to suspect he hasn’t shown just how good he can be with consistent play from under center.

Fantasy Downside

At some point, Moore is going to have to find the end zone if he’s going to continue to be considered a breakout candidate and a borderline WR1. He had just four touchdowns last season, the lowest among players finishing in the top-14 in receiving yards. He had only two during his rookie season as well. His teammate, Curtis Samuel, has scored 14 during that span, on 41 fewer touches. There are big expectations for Moore entering his third season, but he’ll need to find the end zone with more frequency if he’s going to enter into elite territory at his position.

2020 Bottom Line

Moore was ninth in yards and 15th in receptions last season, which are great numbers, but he carries risk at his current ADP. Being drafted in the late-third round of 12-team leagues, fantasy owners are expecting him to be the WR1 or WR2 for their rosters. Maybe Moore hits the numbers needed to warrant that kind of status, but we currently have him ranked about five receivers lower than where he’s being drafted, making him difficult to justify from a value perspective.
