What You Need to Know:

  • Here are some ranks for Moore among all WRs since he entered the league in 2018:
    • 7th in targets
    • 13th in receptions
    • 8th in yards
    • 16th in yards per game
    • 13th in total PPR points
    • 34th in PPR points per game
    • 46th in TD catches
    • 12th in Pro Football Reference approximate value
  • He has clearly had a QB issue through his 1st 4 seasons. The 2018 version of Cam Newton was fine. Since then, Carolina’s primary passers have been Kyle Allen (2019), Teddy Bridgewater (2020) and last year’s recycling bin.
  • Pro Football Focus ranked Moore 31st in receiving grade last season, among 103 WRs with 40+ targets. He ranked 23rd in yards per route run.
  • In 2020, Moore ranked 23rd out of 100 in receiving grade and 13th in YPRR. He checked in 16th and tied for 18th, respectively, among 98 qualifiers in 2019; 35th and 34th out of 103 in 2018.
  • Moore enjoyed the best target share of his career last season, ranking 4th league wide in that category. That coincided with a significant drop in Robbie Anderson’s share, Christian McCaffrey losing 10 games to injury and Curtis Samuel leaving in free agency.
  • Moore garnered 24.1% of Panthers targets in just the 5 games McCaffrey did not leave early last season.
  • Carolina added little to the offensive skill positions this offseason: RB D’Onta Foreman, WR Rashard Higgins and a smattering of undrafted rookies.
  • The Panthers have ranked mid-pack in run-pass split through 2 years of HC Matt Rhule, passing on 59% of plays each year.
  • Carolina's trade for Baker Mayfield should enhance the QB play vs. last year. Mayfield struggled through a shoulder injury in 2021, but he finished 2 of his previous 3 seasons among Pro Football Focus' top 12 in passing grade.
  • Panthers beat writer Ellis L. Williams believes new OC Ben McAdoo’s “up-tempo and quick-release concepts” should add YAC opportunities for WR DJ Moore.
  • Moore is a supreme athlete who delivered on just about every indicator of future success as a draft prospect back in 2018.


Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Moore is a strong talent who has delivered nice fantasy production through 4 seasons. He’ll need a QB upgrade to truly unlock his ceiling, though. A Baker Mayfield trade looks like the best shot at that for this year. And we’re not sure just how much higher Mayfield would vault that ceiling. As long as Moore arrives at a mid-WR2 level or lower in drafts, he’s fine. He’ll have to slip further to make for an exciting target, though.

Sam Darnold, QB CAR

4:10pm EST 11/22/22

Panthers to start Darnold

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.

Dynasty Write-up
There's room for Moore's value to jump from here. He'll be heading into just his age-25 season in 2022. And he's coming off 3 straight years of more than 1,150 receiving yards despite having Kyle Allen, Teddy Bridgewater and Sam Darnold as his primary QBs in those 3 campaigns. Moore's 4,313 receiving yards over his 1st 4 seasons ranks 14th in league history.
