Insider Peter King believes WR Skyy Moore will be a "Swiss army knife" for the Chiefs this season. "He has played all over the map," King said after attending Chiefs camp. "In the backfield, in the slot, set out wide, running the jet sweep stuff. He's going to be a really interesting weapon for a team that is kind of reinventing itself on the fly." We've seen numerous videos of Moore taking handoffs from the backfield in camp. WR Tyreek Hill averaged 15.5 carries over his 6 seasons in Kansas City, so perhaps Moore can pick up some of that work. The rookie remains an intriguing pick at his 11th-round ADP.
Everything was in place for Chiefs WR Skyy Moore to get his 2023 off to a strong start. No Travis Kelce. A plus matchup vs. the Lions. Moore responded by finishing catch-less on three targets. The first two missed connections were slightly misthrown passes by QB Patrick Mahomes. The third was in Moore's hands but knocked loose by a defender. Moore led a heavy WR rotation with a 69% snap rate and ranked second to Marquez Valdes-Scantling with a 64% route rate. Those marks are lower than we'd like to see from a reliable fantasy starter. Kansas City's WR corps figures to evolve throughout the season. Moore is still worth rostering in fantasy football but would be tough to trust in Week 2 starting lineups.
Jesse Newell of the Kansas City Star reports that Chiefs WR Skyy Moore has worked consistently ahead of teammates Rashee Rice and Justyn Ross. He says Moore "has been with 1st every rep at training camp when KC has had 2 WRs." Rice and Ross, meanwhile, "have occasionally mixed in with 1st but overwhelmingly been with 2s." Kadarius Toney, of course, has been out since suffering a setback with the knee that has needed two operations since the end of last season. So it looks like Moore and Marquez Valdes-Scantling as the Chiefs' top two WRs at least for now. Keep that in mind for your fantasy football drafts. Moore leads all Chiefs in our WR rankings and sits much further ahead of Rice there than he does in best ball ADP.
Chiefs reporter Pete Sweeney writes that the connection between QB Patrick Mahomes and WR Skyy Moore “seems to be getting better every day.” Moore looks poised for a prominent early-season role given the recent injury to Kadarius Toney. A Year 2 leap into WR3 range is within Moore’s range of outcomes.
Chiefs WR Skyy Moore (hip) practiced fully on Tuesday. It's still too early in the week to tell if he'll be available for Saturday's Divisional Round showdown vs. the Jaguars, but starting with full practice is a good start. We'll continue to monitor the rookie wideout as the week unfolds.
Chiefs WR Skyy Moore (hand) did not practice on Thursday and has been ruled out for Week 18 vs. the Raiders. Fellow WR Mecole Hardman (pelvis) logged back-to-back days of limited practice and carries a questionable designation for the contest. Fantasy managers would be wise to keep an eye on the status of Hardman as it relates to WR Kadarius Toney. The Raiders are the 12th-best matchup for opposing WRs in adjusted fantasy points allowed this season. This contest would be a potentially strong spot for Toney as a deep flex consideration/DFS play. Be sure to keep an eye on this one before kickoff on Saturday.
