Ravens WR Chris Moore has been a standout early in training camp, according to ESPN's Jamison Hensley. He's been getting 1st-team reps with WRs Steve Smith and Breshad Perriman sidelined and has hauled in a couple of long TDs from QB Joe Flacco. Moore averaged 21.8 yards per catch at Cincinnati last year -- 8th best in the country. Hensley compared Moore to former Raven Torrey Smith for his ability to stretch the field. Smith, of course, turned in 4 top-30 fantasy finishes in Baltimore. We'll see if Moore can maintain a role when the rest of the Ravens' WRs get healthy -- assuming they get healthy. The rookie should be on your watch list.
The Ravens added WR Chris Moore in the 4th round of the 2016 draft. Moore was a downfield weapon at Cincinnati, averaging 19.3 yards per catch over his 4-year career. He also totaled 24 TDs over his final 3 seasons on a 20.9% TD rate. The 6’1, 206-pounder disappointed a bit with a 4.53-second 40 time at the Combine but flashed his explosion with a 130-inch broad jump. Moore joins a crowded but unsettled WR corps in Baltimore, featuring Steve Smith, Breshad Perriman, Mike Wallace and Kamar Aiken. Perriman and Moore could emerge as the eventual starters. Moore’s downfield ability is a nice fit with the big-armed Joe Flacco.
