Summary

The Panthers handpicked D.J. Moore as the player they most wanted on their roster from the 2018 NFL Draft. New offensive coordinator, Norv Turner has plans for the rookie from Maryland, make no mistake about that. Moore may need to learn the nuances of the game, like improving his ability to break coverage on a consistent basis or improve his jump ball skills, but he has a skill set the Panthers have long craved for their offense - his ability to run after the catch and avoid going down on first contact. Opposing defenses will have a difficult time deciding which weapon to stop, as several of the Panthers offensive players have a niche skill that can be relied upon for certain situations. Devin Funchess, Greg Olsen, Christian McCaffrey, D.J. Moore, Torrey Smith and Curtis Samuel all have a specific type or style to their game giving Carolina multiple options and weapons on offense. And that doesn't include Cam Newton's threat as a rusher. As a first round pick and first wide receiver off the board, Moore should see plenty of minutes in his rookie season. He is expected to line up opposite Devin Funchess from Day 1. If he crushes the playbook and learns the ropes, he could have decent fantasy value this season. (May 19)
