Scouting report

NYJ WR Elijah Moore - 2022 Fantasy Football Outlook

2022 Fantasy Upside
Elijah Moore had a respectable rookie campaign in 2021 despite the Jets' inconsistencies and issues on offense. He had a slow start but then started making an impact Week 6. He had a six-week stretch where he caught 34 passes for 459 yards and five touchdowns. The league definitely saw what he was capable of and he should be the No. 1 option in the Jets' passing game playing mostly in the slot.

2022 Fantasy Downside
Moore missed the last five games with a quad injury so durability could be an issue. He also will probably only be as good as his second-year quarterback Zach Wilson. If Wilson is a bust, Moore likely won't progress. There are a lot of factors that could affect Moore which makes drafting him a risk and will hurt his overall fantasy standings

2022 Bottom Line
It's hard to say if the Jets' offense will be markedly improved, but Moore should still post decent numbers if he stays on the field. Expect 60 receptions for about 800 yards. However, his ADP of 80 is probably a slight reach for what will probably be a WR4. He is ranked the 38th wide receiver overall.

NYJ WR Elijah Moore - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 vs. New Orleans
UPDATE: Moore is out for Sunday vs Saints.
Elijah Moore had double-digit targets for the second time in three games and caught 6 passes for 77 yards. He is clearly the Jets' No. 1 receiver with Corey Davis out for the season. Moore has really come on the second half of the season and gives the Jets a viable vertical threat.

Moore will face the Saints who are ranked 27th in aFPA to wide receivers. With Davis out and a favorable matchup, it should be a good week for Moore. Start him as a solid WR2 for Week 14.

NYJ WR Elijah Moore - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 13 vs. Philadelphia
Elijah Moore now has 33 targets over the last four games, most for the Jets over that time period. With Corey Davis hurt, Moore has taken over as the best receiving target for New York.

Moore faces the Eagles who are ranked 4th in aFPA to wide receivers. With a tough matchup and the rookie QB back under center, the Jets offense probably will struggle against Philly. Start Moore as a WR3 or flex for Week 13 based on the fact he will still get targets on Sunday.

NYJ WR Elijah Moore - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 at Houston
Elijah Moore has slid in the No. 1 receiver spot for the Jets and with veteran Corey Davis banged up, the rookie should be the best option for fantasy points this week. Moore had a season-high 11 targets last week which produced 141 receiving yards and a touchdown.

Moore faces the Texans who are ranked 18th in aFPA to wide receivers. One factor could be rookie QB Zach Wilson is back which might hurt Moore who put up those numbers with veteran QB Joe Flacco.

Start Moore as a high-end WR3 or flex. Although we don't expect the same numbers as last week, he should justify that ranking for Week 12.

NYJ WR Elijah Moore - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 vs. Miami
Elijah Moore has stepped into that second wide receiver spot for the Jets as a rookie and has made himself relevant. Over the past four games, he has averaged over six targets per game and has 17 receptions for 208 yards and three touchdowns. He actually had three touchdown receptions over the past two games.

Moore has a favorable matchup against the Dolphins and will have a new quarterback in Joe Flacco. Not sure how this affects Moore with a veteran there, but he still is on the fantasy radar. Keep Moore on the bench for Week 11 and wait to see how it goes with Flacco.

NYJ WR Elijah Moore - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 vs. Buffalo
Elijah Moore had his best game as a professional last Thursday with eight targets that produced seven catches for 84 yards and his first two touchdowns of his career. This might be a sign of things to come in the second half of the season so keep any eye on those targets moving forward.

Keep Moore on the bench for Week 10 against the Bills who have the best pass defense in the NFL.

NYJ WR Elijah Moore - Week 1 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 1 at Carolina

The Jets drafted three rookies they expect to help almost immediately. Former Ole Miss receiver Elijah Moore is one of those rookies. Eventually, New York hopes he becomes their No. 1 target but he will take a backseat to veteran Corey Davis, at least to start.

Moore will make his NFL debut against Carolina who was tough on fantasy receivers last season, ranked eighth in aFPA to wide receivers.

It will be interesting to see how Moore adjusts to the NFL and how quickly he has an effect on the Jets offense. For Week 1, keep him on the bench but he could be a steal in the draft if the New York offense evolves quickly.
