Shark Bites

Panthers WR D.J. Moore (hamstring) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. HC Matt Rhule said afterward that he expects Moore to play vs. the Bills this weekend. We'll keep an eye on him leading up to that one.

Recent Shark Bites

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 WR D.J. Moore tallied 3 grabs for 43 yards and 1 score in a Week 1 loss to the Giants. Moore saw a less-than-thrilling 20.6% target share on a day that turned up only 29 Baker Mayfield passes. Fortunately, Moore scored on an end zone target that found him dusting the CB. Through 2 games, Moore’s oddly posted a pair of games with 6 targets, 3 catches and 43 yards. Moore needs Baker Mayfield — and Carolina’s pass blocking — to improve dramatically if he’s to have a chance at reaching his upside.

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.

The Panthers are giving WR D.J. Moore a 3-year extension worth $61.9 million, with $41.6 million guaranteed. That puts Moore under contract for 4 years in total. Now he just needs a QB.
