Week 1
Not the debut Moore was looking for. He finished with 1 catch on 4 targets for minus-3 yards. That “catch” came on a jet sweep that the Panthers defense strung out for a loss.

Moore did have some opportunities in this one. He just missed a diving catch on a deep ball in the 1st quarter. And he had a 22-yarder up the left sideline called back by an illegal formation penalty.

Encouragingly, Moore played 86% of the Jets’ offensive snaps and ran a route on 85% of pass plays. We’ll see what happens to those rates when WRs Jamison Crowder and Keelan Cole return, but we’re expecting Moore to remain a top 2 WR for the Jets.

We wouldn’t trust the rookie in Week 2 fantasy lineups -- but he should certainly remain stashed on benches.

Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • A 4-star recruit, Moore finished 3rd on Ole Miss in catches and 4th in receiving yards as a freshman. He played alongside A.J. Brown and D.K. Metcalf.
  • Moore tallied 67-850-6 in 2019 before a huge 2020 (86-1193-8). He led the country in catches and receiving yards per game.
  • Only 5’9, 185 pounds, Moore wins with rare speed, change of direction skills and post-catch aggression. He also showed reliable hands at Ole Miss.
  • The Jets selected him 34th overall as the 6th WR off the board in April. He joins a WR corps that includes Corey Davis, Denzel Mims and Jamison Crowder — plus athletic TE Chris Herndon.
  • Crowder is a cut candidate this summer. If he departs, Moore will certainly get a boost.
  • Our current projections have Moore for just 70 targets. However, he should see a handful of carries and find most of his targets in the short-to-intermediate ranges.
  • Rookie QB Zach Wilson will start from day 1. His accuracy profile says he could be a league-average starter right away. Coming from BYU, the jump in competition will be huge, though.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

We’re high on Moore as a dynasty asset. His athleticism and production profile are both extremely strong. If Moore stood 6’0 instead of 5’9, he’d likely have been a top-20 pick back in April.

In year 1, though, with an offense sure to go through growing pains, we’re not expecting significant fantasy contributions. Unless Jamison Crowder is off the roster, Moore is just an end-of-roster stash.
