The Panthers are hiring Frank Reich as their next HC, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Reich was fired by the Colts in November after getting off to a 3-5-1 start. But he went 37-28 across his first 4 seasons in Indianapolis, despite losing QB Andrew Luck just prior to the start of the 2019 campaign. Three of those 4 Colts teams finished top 9 in points; 2 of them ranked top 10 in total yards. Prior to arriving in Indianapolis, Reich spent 4 seasons as an OC -- 2 with the Chargers and 2 with the Eagles. Reich's offense was middling in his 1st season in both stops but improved to finish top 9 in yards in year 2. We'll see how Reich fills out his new staff, but this is a rock-solid hire for Carolina. The Panthers, of course, still need to find an answer at QB after cycling through Baker Mayfield, Sam Darnold and P.J. Walker this past season. Mayfield is now with the Rams, while neither Darnold nor Walker is currently signed for 2023.

Panthers WR D.J. Moore caught 6 balls for 117 yards and a TD in Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers. Carolina pumped its passing volume way up, attempting 37 throws after topping out at 24 attempts across QB Sam Darnold's 1st 4 starts this season. Moore still accounted for 27% of targets, 26% of receptions and 34.3% of receiving yards. He'll be a fairly easy play against the Saints for leagues that play through Week 18.

Panthers WR D.J. Moore entered Sunday's game questionable with an ankle sprain but finished as the offense's lone bright spot. He caught 5 of 6 targets for 73 yards and Carolina's only TD in the loss to the Steelers. Moore should be a solid-to-good fantasy option against the Lions in Week 16 and Buccaneers in Week 17.

Panthers WR D.J. Moore (ankle) is active for today’s game vs. the Steelers. He was downgraded to limited participation on Friday after putting in full workouts the previous 2 days. It’s safe to assume Moore won’t be at 100% today, adding risk to his fantasy profile.

The Panthers expect WR D.J. Moore (ankle) to play against the Steelers today. Moore opened the week with a pair of full practices after hurting the ankle last Sunday, but he finished with a limited Friday. Between that and Carolina's desire to keep the passing volume low, there's risk to playing Moore today. That's reflected in our Week 15 fantasy football rankings.

Panthers WR D.J. Moore (ankle) is expected to play vs. the Steelers on Sunday, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. Moore put in full practices on Wednesday and Thursday but was limited on Friday and listed as questionable. It's fair to assume he won't be at 100% tomorrow. See where Moore sits in the Week 15 WR Rankings.

Panthers WR D.J. Moore (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Steelers. He put in full practices on Wednesday and Thursday but was limited on Friday. "It's not so much of a setback,” HC Steve Wilks said of the Friday downgrade. “It's really just trying to see whether or not he's gonna be able to sustain and be efficient with what we're asking him to do." Between the ankle and a run-heavy offense piloted by Sam Darnold, Moore is a shaky Week 15 fantasy play.

Panthers WR D.J. Moore (ankle) was a full-go in Wednesday's practice. So he'll be available for this weekend's game vs. the Steelers. But Moore looks like a shaky WR3 with Carolina going super run-heavy under QB Sam Darnold.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Panthers WR D.J. Moore is considered "day-to-day" with a knee sprain, rather than the previously reported ankle injury. "Nothing significant," a source told Schefter. It sounds like Moore has a chance to be ready for Sunday's game vs. the Steelers -- although he'll be tough to trust in fantasy lineups after going catch-less in the win over Seattle.

Panthers WR D.J. Moore came away from Sunday's win over the Seahawks with an ankle injury. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Moore will have an MRI today to determine the severity. Moore played all but 3 of Carolina's offensive snaps at Seattle, so we didn't notice the injury initially. We'll see about his status for a Week 15 home date with Pittsburgh, which has ranked among the league's best scoring matchups for WRs. Although Shi Smith and Laviska Shenault led Panthers WRs in production against the Seahawks, Terrace Marshall remained the only one close to Moore in playing time. They ran 25 and 29 pass routes, respectively, compared with 11 for Smith and 8 for Shenault, according to Pro Football Focus.

The Panthers announced Tuesday that QB Sam Darnold will start Sunday's game against the Broncos. Darnold himself will be far from a real fantasy-lineup option for that matchup, and we're not sure he improves the outlook for the offense on whole. But a move away from Baker Mayfield can't be bad for D.J. Moore's target shares. Moore drew 27.2% of Panthers targets in the 11 games Darnold started last season. He has garnered just 22.6% target share in Mayfield's 5 starts this year.

An ankle injury for QB P.J. Walker pressed Panthers QB Baker Mayfield back into the starting lineup for Sunday's game in Baltimore. And Mayfield delivered more of what got Carolina's offense started so slowly this season. He threw for just 196 yards, 0 TDs and 2 INTs on 21-of-33 passing. WR Terrace Marshall was the only Panther to tally more than 26 receiving yards. He caught 3 balls or 76 on a team-high 6 targets. D.J. Moore managed just 3 catches for 24 yards on 5 targets. Bet on Mayfield bowing back out of the lineup as soon as someone else is ready.

Panthers WR D.J. Moore mustered only 24 yards on 6 targets in Sunday’s blowout loss to Cincinnati. P.J. Walker was benched at halftime, which brought Baker Mayfield back into the starting role. Moore’s dud ended a streak of 2 straight games with 19+ PPR points. Walker will start Thursday’s game against Atlanta, a rematch of Week 8. Moore popped off for 6-152-1 in that one.

Panthers WR D.J. Moore trounced the Falcons for 6-152-1 in Week 8. He saw 11 targets — a 30.5% team share — continuing a post- Christian McCaffrey/Robbie Anderson trend. Moore’s highlight came on a 62-yard deep ball that sent the game to OT — and showed off some awful defensive back play. Still, credit Moore for delivering on the type of performance we expected over the summer, especially in a plus matchup. With Walker remaining the starter for the foreseeable future, Moore will stick around as a weekly WR2. Next up is a Bengals squad that was smoked by Amari Cooper (5-131-1) on Monday night.

Panthers interim HC Steve Wilks said Monday that QB P.J. Walker will start this weekend's game vs. the Falcons, even if QBs Baker Mayfield and Sam Darnold are ready to return from their ankle injuries. Walker was efficient in Sunday's shocking win over the Bucs, completing 16 of 22 passes (73%) for 177 yards (8.1 YPA), 2 TDs and 0 INTs. Most importantly, he got WR D.J. Moore going. The pair connected on 7 of 10 targets for 69 yards and 1 score. Walker remains a bottom-barrel fantasy option, but Moore is back in the WR3 mix for Week 8.

Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey rushed 13 times for 69 yards and caught 7 of 8 targets for 89 more in Sunday's loss to the Rams. His 158 total yards constituted 77.8% of Carolina's total net yards for the game. No one else on the team collected more than 22 yards. Starting QB P.J. Walker managed just 60 passing yards for the game, with Jacob Eason coming on for 59 more (primarily thanks to a 49-yard completion to McCaffrey). We'll see about Carolina's QB situation for Week 7. D.J. Moore was the only other Panther to see more than 2 targets. He caught 3 of 7 for just 7 yards.

The Panthers fired HC Matt Rhule. His former team is sitting at 1-4 after going 10-23 over his first 2 seasons. Carolina's ranks in total yards: 21st, 30th and 32nd. Defensive Pass Game Coordinator/Secondary Coach Steve Wilks will take over as interim HC, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He was HC for the Cardinals' 3-13 2018 season. It sounds like OC Ben McAdoo will be sticking around. We're not expecting the change to help Carolina's floundering offense (although it can't hurt).

Panthers WR D.J. Moore tallied 3 grabs for 43 yards and 1 score in a Week 1 loss to the Giants. Moore saw a less-than-thrilling 20.6% target share on a day that turned up only 29 Baker Mayfield passes. Fortunately, Moore scored on an end zone target that found him dusting the CB. Through 2 games, Moore’s oddly posted a pair of games with 6 targets, 3 catches and 43 yards. Moore needs Baker Mayfield — and Carolina’s pass blocking — to improve dramatically if he’s to have a chance at reaching his upside.
