2019 Fantasy Outlook
The first receiver taken in the 2018 draft, Moore had a fine rookie season, especially considering the sorry state of the Panthers passing game for most of the year. He finished with 9.6 YPT and only one drop on 82 targets, broke three plays for more than 40 yards and also racked up 172 extra yards on the ground, giving him 960 yards from scrimmage on only 68 touches. At 5-11, 215, Moore is stout, powerful and fast (4.42 40). He's unusually quick for a heavy receiver and has good vision in the open field. Moore didn't see much red-zone work last year - only 11 looks inside the 20 - but that was with the 6-4 Devin Funchess around. Funchess is gone this year, and Moore sits atop the Panthers depth chart with only the small, quick Curtis Samuel as a significant alternate option for wideout targets. Of course, Christian McCaffrey, who broke the running back receptions record last year, also will play a big part in the passing game, and tight end Greg Olsen is set to play another year. But as long as Cam Newton's shoulder recovery goes well - so far so good at press time - this should be a better passing offense in 2019, and Moore is likely to be its top target. Read Past Outlooks

Nabs eight-yard pass
WRCarolina Panthers
August 16, 2019
Moore caught one of three targets for an eight-yard gain during Friday's 27-14 loss to the Bills.
ANALYSIS
All three of Moore's targets came during Carolina's opening three drives with Kyle Allen at quarterback. That's a difficult place from which to evaluate. On one hand, it's good to see Moore involved early. On the other, it doesn't mean much if Cam Newton isn't throwing him the ball. Whether Moore is stepping into a true WR1 role should become a little clearer Thursday against the Patriots, with Newton expected to suit up.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
The first receiver taken in the draft at pick No. 24, Moore finds himself in a crowded Carolina receiving corps, but one that's lacking a star. Devin Funchess profiles as the team's No. 1, but he's hardly more established than last year's top dog Kelvin Benjamin, who was dealt midseason during a playoff run. Newly signed Torrey Smith and Jarius Wright and last year's second-rounder Curtis Samuel are also in the mix, but likely as complementary options. At 6-0, 210, with 4.42 40 speed and good quickness, toughness and overall athleticism, Moore profiles as a faster Jarvis Landry or a bigger Steve Smith. Moore just turned 21 in April, so there's plenty of room for growth. Expect him to see targets right away, either from the slot or opposite Funchess, and there's a chance he winds up as the team's top receiver by season's end.
