Shark Bites

The Falcons acquired WR Rondale Moore from the Cardinals in exchange for QB Desmond Ridder. Moore is coming off a disappointing 2023 campaign, mustering just 40 catches for 352 yards and one TD over 17 games. He struggled with injuries over his first two NFL seasons but averaged 4.3 catches and 39 yards per game. Still only 23, Moore has a chance to rebound with the Falcons. But he was a low average-target-depth player in college and has remained so as a pro, so he needs significant volume to deliver in fantasy. That'll be tough to find in Atlanta alongside WR Drake London, TE Kyle Pitts, and RB Bijan Robinson. The Falcons also added WR Darnell Mooney to the pass-catching corps in free agency. It's a solid group for QB Kirk Cousins. Ridder, meanwhile, will be no threat to QB Kyler Murray in Arizona. Ridder is only worth rostering in deeper superflex dynasty leagues.

Recent Shark Bites

Cardinals WR Rondale Moore played 42.8% of his snaps out wide last year. That number is down to 21.1% through two preseason games this year. Assuming that continues, it means Moore won't play much in 2-WR sets in new OC Drew Petzing's offense. It's a significant hit to Moore's 2023 fantasy value. Marquise Brown and rookie Michael Wilson look like the favorites to lead Arizona WRs in snaps this season.

The Cardinals ran WR Rondale Moore almost exclusively out of three-WR sets in Friday night's preseason opener against the Broncos. According to Pro Football Focus, just one of Moore's 10 snaps came in a two-WR formation. Arizona started Moore, rookie Michael Wilson, and veteran Zach Pascal at WR, with Marquise Brown getting the night off. It's too early to say this is a problem, but it wouldn't be good for Moore's target volume if this setup holds. We'll be watching through the rest of the preseason. Moore sits in low-risk territory of both ADP and our fantasy football PPR rankings.

Cardinals WR Rondale Moore continued to struggle with injuries last year, missing nine games and most of a 10th. But he was busy and productive in the other seven, averaging 8.0 targets, 5.6 catches, 59.1 yards, and .14 TDs. Moore ranked 17th among WRs in PPR points and 29th in non-PPR over that seven-week stretch. Durability remains a concern here. And the Cardinals offense figures to struggle at least until QB Kyler Murray returns from his knee injury. But, with WR DeAndre Hopkins gone, Moore could be a cheap source of strong volume this season. His current ADP sits in Round 11 as the 54th WR off the board. He lands considerably higher than that in our PPR WR Rankings.

Cardinals WR Rondale Moore (groin) has been placed on IR. With only 4 games remaining, his 2022 season is over. Moore averaged 8.0 targets, 5.9 catches and 59 yards in 7 healthy games this season -- but he's now missed 12 of 34 games through 2 NFL seasons. Moore also had tons of trouble staying healthy at Purdue. He remains a solid hold in dynasty leagues but will be a double-digit round pick in early 2023 redrafts.

Cardinals WR Rondale Moore (groin) is out for Monday night's game vs. the Patriots. WR Greg Dortch (thumb) isn't listed on the final injury report after a full week of practice, putting him in line to operate as Arizona's primary slot receiver this week. Dortch has averaged 8.3 targets in 4 games with a 70+% snap rate this season -- although we wouldn't bet on quite that much volume this week with WRs DeAndre Hopkins and Marquise Brown both playing.
