|Dec 22, 2019||NFL||Head Cranial Concussion Grade 1||Moore left Carolina's Week 16 loss at Indianapolis with a concussion injury. He missed the season finale game|
What You Need to Know:
-Moore’s usage changed in year 1 under HC Matt Rhule/OC Joe Brady. His average depth of target jumped from 11.7 to 13.7 yards; his deep target rate shot from 16.1% to 22.1%.
-While his targets dipped by 17 (118) and his catches dropped by 21 (66), his YPC spiked from 13.5 to 18.1.
-Moore’s 22.3% target share nearly matched his 2019 tally (22.5%). It was, however, a surprise to see new Panther Robby Anderson see a team-high 25.8% share.
-Moore’s 2.23 yards per route run ranked 11th among 84 WRs with 50+ targets. The guy was efficient.
-Moore was limited to low-end WR2 range because of his low TD count (4). His career TD rate is now a subpar 4.8%.
-He missed 1 game on the COVD-19 list after missing 1 game in 2019 (concussion).
-Moore played just 22.7% of his snaps out of the slot. Look for that number to rise after the panthers lost primary slot Curtis Samuel and added an outside threat in rookie Terrace Marshall in Round 2.
-The Panthers swapped out Teddy Bridgewater for Sam Darnold. The move brings a downgrade in passing accuracy, though it’s worth noting that Moore caught just 58% of his 2020 targets. 9 drops certainly hurt.
-Darnold will reunite with former Jet Robby Anderson. It’ll be worth tracking their practice reports throughout the summer, as the duo played 2 years together. Look for Anderson/Moore to remain in a co-WR1 role.
Draft Sharks Bottom Line
Only 24, Moore enters the fall following a 2nd straight 1,000-yard season.
2021 brings about some change. The Panthers will field a new starting QB (Sam Darnold) and a new WR in 3-WR sets (rookie Terrace Marshall). We’d be surprised if Marshall is an instant upgrade on the departed Curtis Samuel, so perhaps there’s a higher ceiling for Moore this fall.
Ultimately, though, the Maryland product retains a similar WR2 outlook. Currently, he’s fairly priced at a late Round 4 ADP.
