ARI WR Rondale Moore - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 at Cleveland Browns

Rondale Moore caught five balls and had three carries for a total of 97 yards from scrimmage last week against the 49ers. His snap count remained under 50%, however, and his production has been inconsistent from a fantasy perspective. The Cardinals are doing a great job spreading the ball around, which has been nice for their 5-0 record, but not great when setting lineups including Arizona pass-catchers. Moore should be rostered in case he can consistently separate himself from the pack in this prolific offense, but fantasy managers should be wary starting him in any given week. We have him ranked outside starting territory this week against the Browns.

ARI WR Rondale Moore - Week 4 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 4 at Los Angeles Rams

Rondale Moore had a disappointing game against the Jaguars last week after such a great start to the season. He had only two catches and a carry and finished with just four total yards. His two targets were surprising given the matchup and his production in Week 2. While there is certainly upside this week against a prolific offense that will keep the Cardinals throwing, and with Jalen Ramsey likely blanketing DeAndre Hopkins, it’s too risky to trust him in most fantasy lineups. We have him ranked outside starter territory, though I’m kind of excited if I have him in best ball.

ARI WR Rondale Moore - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 at Jacksonville Jaguars

Rondale Moore finished as the WR5 last week after hauling in a 77-yard touchdown pass and finishing with 114 yards on seven receptions in a shootout against the Vikings. Moore also had eight targets after getting five in Week 1, and he leads the Cardinals in receptions, targets, and yards in this young season. While those numbers are unlikely to be sustainable all season, it shows the power of this offense, and the intention the team has of making him a huge part of the offense.

This week, Moore has a great matchup against a reeling Jaguars defense. While the Cardinals seem fully capable at spreading the ball around, making it hard to trust any one offensive weapon outside of Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins, fantasy managers with a risky streak might consider Moore as a volatile WR3 or flex play in a nice matchup. His playmaking ability has been on full display thus far, and he’s getting enough targets to make him a high-upside play with less risk than first glance.

ARI WR Rondale Moore - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 vs. Minnesota Vikings

Rondale Moore was clearly an active part of the passing game in Week 1, catching four of five targets for 68 yards. I want to see a little more from Moore before I trust him in my lineups, but it’s an encouraging start for the rookie. Fantasy managers should raise an eyebrow in his direction for what seems like a good matchup, but hold off on starting him until his snap count gets a little higher than the 29% it was last week.

ARI WR Rondale Moore - Week 1 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 1 at Tennessee Titans

Rondale Moore is an exciting sparkplug to keep an eye on as the season progresses, and it’s very likely the Cardinals try to manufacture ways to get him the ball right out of the gate. However, until we see what his usage and snap count are going to look like, it’s hard to confidently trot him out into fantasy lineups. Take a wait-and-see approach with the rookie playmaker, even against what looks like a pretty good matchup against the Titans.

ARI WR Rondale Moore - 2021 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside The Cardinals selected Purdue's Rondale Moore in the second round with the No. 49 overall selection, adding a diminutive but explosive wide receiver to the offensive weapons surrounding ascendant quarterback Kyler Murray. Moore's size has generated doubters throughout his football career, but as NFL.com suggests, his 4.3 speed and open-field moves thoroughly negated that disadvantage at the college level. NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein compares Moore to Seattle Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett and believes he can win an NFL role as a return man, as well. Injuries and early draft entry limited his college career to just 20 games. Moore established himself as Purdue's best player, and one of the most explosive players in the Big Ten Conference, from his very first college game. His freshman year, his only healthy season at Purdue, he led the nation with 114 catches. The Boilermakers' short passing game held down his average (11 yards per catch), but he nevertheless scored 12 touchdowns and added 213 rushing yards on 21 attempts. Also a primary return man for Purdue that year, Moore was named the Big Ten Freshman of the Year and became the first freshman winner of the Paul Hornung Award as the nation's most versatile player.

Fantasy Downside Even assuming Larry Fitzgerald doesn't return, the Cardinals' receiving corps is a crowded field with DeAndre Hopkins, newcomer A.J. Green and Christian Kirk opening camp locked in ahead of Moore. That's not to say he can't carve out a role, but the rookie's work is cut out for him -- especially with Hopkins being among the NFL's most-targeted wideouts. Don't look for that to change no matter how impressive Moore might be out of the chute.

2021 Bottom Line There's play-making ability here if Kliff Kingsbury and Murray can tap into it, but set your expectations for fantasy production at reasonable levels (think WR4/WR5).
