Week 6
It’s not clear just how much Chase Edmonds’ shoulder injury has helped Moore the past 2 weeks, but it certainly hasn’t hurt him.

Moore saw his 2 largest playing-time shares the past 2 weeks, including a season-high 56% in Sunday’s win at Cleveland. He set a season-high with 3 carries in Week 5 and then matched it against the Browns. Moore has also seen average target depths of 0 yards or less in 3 of the past 4 games.

His season-high playing time and 7 opportunities (4 targets, 3 carries) produced just 26 total yards at Cleveland.

Edmonds improved from a single, limited practice in Week 5 to 3 limited workouts last week. So it’s fair to assume his shoulder is improving. We’ll see about his participation heading into Week 7. We’ll also see about the usage for both him and Moore in what could very well be another lopsided win vs. Houston.

Moore remains worth rostering but also continues to be a low-floor, modest-ceiling player.
Week 5
Moore bounced back this week, catching 5 of his 6 targets for 59 yards. He also ran the ball 3 times for 38 yards. This was the first time seeing more than 3 targets in a game since his Week 2 breakout against Minnesota.

Going forward, Moore will be an inconsistent weapon who can produce when the volume is sent his way. Unfortunately for him, he is on an offense that has multiple weapons to lean on week to week. Chase Edmonds and Christian Kirk both thrive in areas where Moore lives.

There will be weeks where Moore is a beast but understand underwhelming weeks will happen with so many mouths to feed.
Week 4
Moore’s playing time was lacking again in the Week 4 win over the Rams. He played 42% of Arizona’s offensive snaps and ran a route on 39% of pass plays. Both marks easily trailed WRs DeAndre Hopkins, A.J. Green and Christian Kirk. RB Chase Edmonds and TE Maxx Williams even ran more routes than Moore.

The Cardinals were clearly looking to get the ball into the rookie’s hands when he was on the field. He carried twice for 9 yards and caught all 3 of his targets for 28 yards, including a screen that went for 16 yards to convert a 3rd and 14.

Moore remains a strong fantasy stash because of his talent and the explosiveness of this Cardinals offense. But he can’t be trusted in starting lineups until his playing time grows.
Week 2
Moore really made his Week 2 with a 77-yard catch-and-run TD late in the 2nd quarter, a play that found him ridiculously wide open after Kyler Murray rolled left out of the pocket.

That play accounted for 67.5% of Moore’s yardage for the game, but it certainly doesn’t paint the picture of his involvement. Moore led the Cardinals with 8 targets for the game, and led that category at halftime with 5. His early involvement included a touch pass from Murray on a designed play near the goal line. Moore nearly scored but lost a fumble just short of the end zone. (Replay reversed the Minnesota recovery, and then offensive holding negated the whole thing.)

Moore saw his exposure increase from running a route on 37.8% of dropbacks in Week 1 to 57.1% in Week 2. And the rookie’s targets per route have been strong through his only 2 games.

This looks more like an exciting, young player trending upward than a fluky 1st couple of games. We’ll see, of course, if the next couple of contests suggest otherwise. Arizona’s bevy of options -- 6 players saw 4-8 targets in Week 2 -- certainly leaves room for inconsistent target shares. A Week 3 trip to Jacksonville, though, gives everyone upside.

Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • The Cardinals selected Moore with the 49th overall pick of this spring’s draft.
  • The Purdue product turned in 1 of the most impressive freshman seasons we’ve ever seen back in 2018. He posted a 114-1,258-12 receiving line, a 21-213-2 rushing line and served as the primary return man. Moore set a school record with 2,215 all-purpose yards and was named a consensus All-American.
  • Moore averaged 9.1 catches and 94 yards per game over the past 2 seasons.
  • He blazed a 4.29-second 40-yard dash and posted a ridiculous 42.5-inch vertical at his Pro Day to earn a 93rd percentile Relative Athletic Score.
  • The tape shows incredible burst, quickness and change-of-direction to create separation on routes and make plays after the catch. Moore also has RB-like vision on end arounds and jet sweeps.
  • The concerns:
    • Multiple hamstring injuries limited Moore to just 7 games over the past 2 seasons.
    • He measured just 5’7 at his Pro Day. There’s only been one 1,000-yard season by a WR 5’7 or shorter in NFL history.
  • Moore joins a Cardinals team entering year 3 with QB Kyler Murray and HC Kliff Kingsbury. They ranked 18th in pass attempts, 24th in yards and 25th in TDs in 2019 -- but climbed to 15th, 17th and 13th last year.
  • WR DeAndre Hopkins returns as the clear top option in the passing game.
  • But Arizona lost WR Larry Fitzgerald, who ranked 3rd on the team last year with 5.5 targets per game.
  • Moore will be competing for looks behind Hopkins with returnee Christian Kirk and free-agent addition A.J. Green. Neither guy was good last year. Kirk ranked 76th in yards per route run and Green 82nd among 87 WRs with 50+ targets.
  • Fitzgerald played 83% of his snaps in the slot last year. Moore played 88% of his snaps in the slot over 3 college seasons, making him a natural replacement for Fitz.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

If you can look past his height and hamstring problems, Moore is a super intriguing prospect. He turned in 1 of the best freshman seasons in college football history, remained productive when on the field the past 2 years and tested as an elite athlete.

He joins a Cardinals offense with plenty of target opportunity behind DeAndre Hopkins. Moore will need to battle for those looks with Christian Kirk and A.J. Green -- but neither of those guys was good last year.

Don’t be surprised if the rookie finishes 2nd on Arizona in targets this season. He’s a nice late-round bench stash.

The Cardinals added Purdue WR Rondale Moore with the 49th overall pick of the 2021 NFL Draft. Moore turned in 1 of the most impressive freshman seasons you’ll ever see back in 2018, racking up 114 catches for 1,258 yards and 12 TDs. He added 21 carries for 213 yards (10.1 YPC) and 2 TDs while also serving as Purdue’s primary return man. He set a Purdue record with 2,215 all-purpose yards and was named a consensus All-American. Unfortunately, multiple hamstring injuries limited Moore to just 7 games over the past 2 seasons (although he remained uber productive, averaging 9.1 catches and 94 yards per game). Size is also a concern for this 5’7, 180-pounder. There’s only been one 1,000-yard season by a WR 5’7 or shorter in NFL history. Moore has the goods to buck that trend, though. He blazed a 4.29-second 40-yard dash and posted a ridiculous 42.5-inch vertical at his Pro Day to earn a 93rd percentile Relative Athletic Score. The tape shows incredible burst, quickness and change-of-direction to create separation on routes and make plays after the catch. Moore also has RB-like vision on end arounds and jets sweeps. He joins DeAndre Hopkins, Christian Kirk and A.J. Green in the Cardinals WR corps. Kirk and Green are both set to hit free agency next offseason. Moore’s arrival is probably the nail in Andy Isabella’s coffin in Arizona.
