The Bears agreed to a trade sending the number one overall pick in the 2023 draft to the Panthers in exchange for the ninth overall pick in 2023, the 61st pick in 2023, two future picks, and WR D.J. Moore. There's certainly a lot to take in here. GM Ryan Poles managing to swing a high-end WR in Moore to go with QB Justin Fields is a tremendous boost for the team's future. Any doubts surrounding Fields and his cast of receivers are gone, solidifying his status as a top-end dynasty QB. There's got to be bad news for someone here, though. Between this move and the deadline deal that brought WR Chase Claypool over from the Steelers, it's hard to imagine a ton of fantasy upside for WR Darnell Mooney in this offense now. TE Cole Kmet also loses some value now that he seems doomed to be stuck between third or fourth in the pecking order for targets. As far as the Panthers are concerned, this is a significant investment made into finally solving their QB woes. Going up to number one enables the franchise to put an end to exploring retread experiments as they tried with QBs Sam Darnold and Baker Mayfield. New HC Frank Reich will have his pick of a young signal-caller to build toward the future with. One of either Alabama QB Bryce Young or Ohio State QB C.J. Stroud feels like a natural fit to plug in right away to a pro-style offense. Unfortunately, without Moore in the mix, this Panthers' offense is devoid of weapons for whoever ends up under center. It's tough to say right now who, if anyone, emerges from this Panthers' offense as a fantasy contributor. Free agency and the NFL Draft in April will help color in those missing pieces of information. Keep up with our coverage here at Draft Sharks as the offseason continues to unfold.
Bears WR D.J. Moore hauled in 5 of 9 targets for 58 receiving yards in Week 10 vs. the Panthers. Thursday’s output marks the fourth time in five weeks that he’s reached at least 50 yards receiving in a contest. Sure, it’s not as good as the 106.2 receiving yards per game Moore averaged through Week 5 with QB Justin Fields (right thumb) in the lineup, but fantasy managers can feel happy that they at least got flex-level production out of him over the past month. Fields’ return from injury in Week 11 vs. the Lions isn’t yet certain, but it would certainly be a huge boost for Moore’s outlook next week. It won’t be a cakewalk matchup, however. The Lions rank ninth in pass defense DVOA in 2023.
Bears WR DJ Moore snagged 8 of 9 targets for 54 yards in Week 7. Call it a fine outcome in Tyson Bagent’s first NFL start. Moore nearly added a TD, but he couldn’t secure a one-handed catch in tight coverage. Justin Fields (thumb) should return within the next few weeks, but in the meantime, Moore will remain a WR2/3. Next up is a road date with the Chargers.
Bears WR D.J. Moore tallied a decent 5 receptions for 51 yards in Sunday's loss to the Vikings, despite losing QB Justin Fields halfway through. Moore logged 7 of his 8 targets and 4 receptions after QB Tyler Bagent took over. No other Bear caught more than two passes in the game. We'll see whether Fields can make it back for a Week 7 meeting with Las Vegas.
Bears WR D.J. Moore racked up 230 receiving yards and a single-game franchise record three TDs in Thursday night's win over the Commanders. He got going early with a 58-yard deep reception and a 20-yard TD on Chicago's first possession. Moore's assault continued throughout the night with a strong combination of route running and after-catch skills. In fact, he racked up a whopping 141 yards after the catch, per Pro Football Focus. His second TD came on an impressive contested grab from 11 yards out in the second quarter; the third a relatively easy 56-yard catch and run after CB Kendall Fuller tried to jump Moore's route for an INT. Moore has now topped 100 yards in two straight games and three of the last four. More importantly, he's racked up 32 targets on a 27.8% share over the past four weeks. Don't expect the Bears passing game to continue producing anywhere close to how it has these past two weeks. But QB Justin Fields looks improved and can certainly support Moore as at least a WR2 on this type of volume. Plus, Moore has three more favorable matchups on tap vs. the Vikings, Raiders, and Chargers.
Bears WR D.J. Moore caught eight of nine targets for 131 yards and a score in Sunday's loss to the Broncos. This Denver defense is the worst in the league right now, but it was nice to see Moore (and QB Justin Fields) take advantage of the matchup. Moore has now topped 100 yards in two of his last three games. More importantly, he's registered 24%, 30%, and 26% target shares the past three weeks. If Moore continues to see that type of volume -- and this Bears passing game can just be serviceable -- Moore will be a solid weekly fantasy starter. His stretch of favorable matchups continues the next four weeks vs. the Commanders, Vikings, Raiders, and Chargers.
