WR David Moore - Seattle Seahawks
|6-1, 219||Born: 1-15-1995||College: East Central||Drafted: Round 7, pick 2017|
Week 14: at Los Angeles Rams - $3000
FBG says: Bad matchup. Although Seattle's offense ranks in the bottom quarter of the NFL in passing volume, Russell Wilson's incredible 2019 season has the team ranked firmly in the top-10 of almost every relevant passing statistic. The Seahawks rank 10th in the NFL in passing yards, tied for 1st in passing touchdowns, and 5th in net yards per attempt so far this season. Through the air, Wilson has favored Tyler Lockett as his number-one target. However, in recent weeks, a leg injury along with the flu have limited Lockett's impact on the game, as he averages just three targets per game over the last month. D.K. Metcalf has picked up some of the slack, as the rookie receiver has led the team's receiving corps in targets in every game since Lockett was initially hampered by the leg injury against the San Francisco 49ers. Josh Gordon has yet to make much of an impact in the team's offense, aside from two timely catches, and there is no sign of that changing anytime soon. The Los Angeles Rams field one of the NFL's most talented pass defenses at all three levels this season. The Rams have defended above-average volume through the air, and aside from two outlier performances, they have done a great job at limiting opposing passing attacks. On a per-play basis, the Rams rank 6th in the NFL, allowing just 5.7 net yards per attempt this season, thanks to their supremely talented unit of pass defenders. Along the defensive line, Aaron Donald headlines one of the league's most-feared pass-rushes. Aaron Donald, Clay Matthews, and Dante Fowler, Jr. have combined for 25 sacks this season, in large part thanks to Donald's uncanny ability to command and beat double teams. At linebacker, Cory Littleton is one of the best pass-defending linebackers in the NFL. Littleton is tied for the team-lead in interceptions this season, with two to his name, and his athleticism at the second-level is nearly-unmatched by any other linebacker in the league. In the secondary, an in-season move to acquire Jalen Ramsey bolstered an already impressive defensive backfield. Ramsey's performance in a Rams' jersey has been just slightly-above-average through six games, but he should return to his All-Pro levels in the near future. Ramsey is supported by established veterans in Nickell Robey-Coleman and Eric Weddle in the secondary, helping to compensate for Ramsey's comparatively disappointing production. Lastly, Taylor Rapp, a wildly impressive rookie that recorded his first career interception last weekend, rounds out one of the league's best pass defenses at the safety position. In all, Los Angeles' pass defense is one of the league's strongest, and they should give Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks' passing attack as much trouble as any defense has this season.

Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 13 vs MIN (4 / 2 / 65 / 1 rec - 14.5 points, $3000)
Moore was targeted twice in the end zone, but on one the coverage was tight and he wasn't able to haul it in; on the other, the pass was borderline catchable. His 60-yard scoring play was perplexing as he found himself completely alone behind the secondary as Wilson hit him in stride and he easily strolled in for the score. Moore seems to always get open enough for a few prime chances each game; the problem is that he loses snaps to Lockett, Metcalf, and now Gordon as well. So he's always a worthwhile gamble to score, but never consistent.
2019 Week 8 vs ATL (4 / 1 / 23 / 0 rec, 1 / 2 / 0 rush - 3.5 points, $3200)
Moore was given the lion's share of the third WR snaps... and did virtually nothing with them. He was targeted twice in a row early on, and couldn't haul in the ball in coverage, effectively killing the Seahawks drive. On the first play, Moore lined up wide and was targeted in the end zone. In both cases, he just didn't get enough separation to be able to make the catch. His third target was on a third down play. Another miss, another stalled drive. Moore carried the ball on a first down reverse handoff, for only a 2-yard gain. And - finally! -- he caught one in the fourth quarter, and easily knocked down a defender to add yards after the catch.
2019 Week 6 vs CLE (4 / 3 / 36 / 0 rec - 6.6 points, $3300)
Moore split third WR duties with Jaron Brown, and though he caught 3-of-4, he did not sniff the end zone.
2019 Week 5 vs LAR (2 / 1 / 10 / 1 rec - 8 points, $3300)
As could be expected, Moore's snap count was low (17) as he shared a role in the 3rd WR rotation. His touchdown was actually a catch behind scrimmage, which he caught with a little room to run, and made a nice move to shake the closest defender while another two closed in, but too late. Moore is best left on the fantasy bench, but also worth keeping an eye on, based on his usage, as he tends to see a red zone target or two each game.
2019 Week 4 vs ARI (2 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec - 1.9 points, $3400)
Moore seems to have fallen behind in the third WR competition, as he works his way back from a shoulder injury. He had one short catch, and was targeted in the end zone but the ball was uncatchable.
2019 Week 3 vs NO (2 / 1 / 29 / 0 rec - 3.9 points, $3100)
Moore made his presence felt with a nice 29 yard leaping grab over the defender in the first quarter. His only other target was in the end zone, but the ball was thrown way over him.
