Panthers WR D.J. Moore (hamstring) is active for today’s game vs. the Bucs. He was listed as questionable after getting in just a limited practice on Friday. Moore played through this injury last week, catching 6 of 11 targets for 48 yards.
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.
