Basic Stats Full Player Fantasy Analysis

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.

Panthers WRs D.J. Moore and Curtis Samuel are active for tonight's game against the Packers. Moore was activated from the COVID list this week and should be ready for his usual role. Samuel's hamstring tightened up on him in Thursday's practice, so he comes with elevated risk in fantasy lineups.

Panthers WR D.J. Moore remains on the COVID list as of Friday afternoon and isn't expected to play vs. the Broncos on Sunday, ESPN's David Newton reports. Moore has averaged 7.4 targets per game this season, so his absence frees up a bunch of opportunity for WRs Robby Anderson and Curtis Samuel.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Panthers WR D.J. Moore has COVID. We don't know exactly when Moore tested positive, but consider him a long shot to play against the Broncos this weekend. WR Curtis Samuel, meanwhile, landed on the COVID list as a "close contact" but hasn't tested positive as of now. If he can avoid a positive test, he should be cleared to face Denver.

Panthers WR D.J. Moore has been placed on the COVID list. It's unclear if he tested positive for the virus or was just a close contact of someone who did. Moore is also recovering from his Week 12 ankle injury, so his status for Sunday's game against the Broncos is murky at best.
