D.J. Moore, WR, Carolina Panthers
After what looked like a potential breakout game in Week 8 against the Baltimore Ravens, with five receptions for 90 yards, Moore followed with five catches for 36 yards over the next two games. But he’s on an upswing again, with seven catches for 157 yards (on eight targets) and a touchdown on Sunday against the Detroit Lions.
Moore is in good position to keep the good times rolling. The Seattle Seahawks, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Cleveland Browns, New Orleans Saints (twice) and Atlanta Falcons are on the slate from Week 12-Week 17, and all five teams are in the bottom half of the league against wide receivers (ESPN PPR scoring). That includes three of the bottom four (Saints, Buccaneers and Falcons).
As long as Devin Funchess is drawing the opposition’s best corner, Moore will be left to exploit a lesser-talented player. He’s worth adding as a WR3/WR4 in 12 and 14-team leagues.
