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.
  • As of this writing, Sam Darnold and Matt Corral stand as the top 2 competitors at QB. Rumors have Carolina nearing a deal for QB Baker Mayfield, though.
  • 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.

Baker Mayfield, QB CLE

8:30am EDT 6/14/22

Mayfield trade coming soon?

CBS' Jonathan Jones reports that the Browns and Panthers are involved in trade talks "surrounding" QB Baker Mayfield. Jones reports that there's "urgency" for Carolina to make a move early enough to get Mayfield some minicamp reps with the team. He adds that the Panthers' offer is the best Cleveland has gotten and that the primary sticking point is how much of Mayfield's 2022 salary the Browns would pay. The QB is in the 5th and final year of his rookie contract and will likely face a "prove it" year, with unrestricted free agency ahead in March 2023. He makes obvious sense for Carolina, which currently sports Sam Darnold and Matt Corral as the top 2 options. And the relationship between Mayfield and the Browns looks finished. Mayfield hasn't proved to be a high-upside fantasy QB through 4 seasons, but the Panthers would set him up with nice pass-catching talent -- led by D.J. Moore and Christian McCaffrey. Stacking him with 1 or both players in best-ball tournament lineups now would be a low-risk, high-upside move.

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. Williams envisions Moore thriving on quick-hitters and downfield routes, similar to how a young Odell Beckham excelled with McAdoo in New York. “It’s long and it’s treacherous, but it’s built for the NFL,” Moore said regarding McAdoo’s playbook. “The playbook is long, like some of the verbiage is long. You just got to be able to study and comprehended. But it worked when he was calling it in New York and all the places that he’d been.” Improved QB play will remain the key to unlocking Moore’s upside. Entering year 5, he’s never topped 4 TDs in a single season.

Panthers WR Robby Anderson (quad) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Bucs. He didn’t practice all week, but HC Matt Rhule called him a game-time decision on Friday. Anderson isn’t a Week 18 fantasy option, but his absence would open up more targets for WR D.J. Moore.

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.
