WR Lance Moore - Detroit Lions

Week 12: vs Philadelphia Eagles
Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. The Lions won a game last week! In other dire portents of doom, the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse were seen getting their horses shod, and the moon turned blood red. Just kidding - the Lions really did win a game, though. Matthew Stafford found both his primary receivers for over 50 yards receiving last week, making their fantasy owners less depressed. Calvin Johnson had nine targets for 5/88/0 receiving; Golden Tate handled 11 for 8/73/0; and Theo Riddick saw six for 5/72/0. The only TD scored by the Lions' offense was run in by Stafford, making his fantasy owners slightly less depressed (22/35 for 282 yards passing, zero TDs or interceptions, with 6/31/1 rushing). The Eagles' fans left Lincoln Financial Field feeling depressed last week, after their 'defense' allowed well over 500 combined yards to the Buccaneers, including a whopping 19/29 for 246 yards passing, one million (ok, only FIVE) TDs, and zero interceptions to rookie quarterback Jameis Winston. Philadelphia lost 45-17, but Mark Sanchez didn't fumble the ball! There is a silver lining in every cloud, Eagles' fans. Two depressing units face off in this depressing-yet-nationally televised matchup. That sounds about even to us.

Recent Game Summaries
2015 Week 11 vs OAK (2 / 1 / 21 / 0 rec)
Targeted twice on the day, Lance Moore pulled in a 21 yard reception on a corner route. He was covered well on his second target, and unable to make the catch.
2015 Week 10 vs GB (6 / 3 / 29 / 1 rec)
Lance Moore continued his equally consistent and imperative role on this offense this week against Green Bay. The first catch of the day went in Moore's direction for a 10 yard gain. Later in the third quarter, he managed a 15 yard gain on a post route. Finally, to help Detroit secure the lead, Moore executed a nice quick slant on the 4 yard line for a touchdown catch from Stafford. His precise route and acceleration gave him an initial step on the defender and allowed for the score.
2015 Week 8 vs KC (3 / 3 / 29 / 1 rec)
Used on two short routes, Lance Moore found a ways to help the Detroit offense. In the fourth quarter Moore scored Detroit's only touchdown on a hard fought catch and run for 21 yards.
2015 Week 7 vs MIN (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Coming off back to back touchdown games, the last of which was accompanied by a 106 yard receiving effort, one might have expected a little more from Moore this week. But after amassing 14 targets in two games, Moore fell to earth and went splat. His one target was low and Moore couldn't scoop it off the turf.
2015 Week 6 vs CHI (6 / 5 / 106 / 1 rec)
Largely a token "one catch, stat line receiver", Lance Moore was a fundamental component against the Chicago Bears defense. Things started early for Moore when he took his first reception 20 yards for a touchdown. While Moore only caught one pass per quarter, they were either long plays for gobs of yardage or critical situations where he stepped up. In the second quarter with the Detroit offense losing momentum, Stafford found Moore on a 40 yard crossing route and shifted the advantage in Detroit's favor. Late in the 4th quarter, a short slant to Moore helped Detroit secure a first down on their way to the end zone. A savvy veteran on the field, Moore's experience was utilized against Chicago.
2015 Week 5 vs ARI (8 / 6 / 55 / 1 rec)
Lance Moore saw a slight uptick in action with Orlovsky and a pass heavy offense on the field. Four out of his five catches came in the fourth quarter. His other lone reception came in the first half from Stafford on an 8 yard route for a touchdown.
2015 Week 4 vs SEA (3 / 2 / 21 / 0 rec)
Lance Moore's role has been consistently minimal. He made the stat line with two grabs, one of which was in a critical 3rd down situation where he was utilized on a fake screen pass to Abdullah, which was unfortunately one of the most unique plays run by Detroit in the game.
2015 Week 3 vs DEN (3 / 2 / 10 / 0 rec)
Lance Moore provided to be useful at moving the ball again in week three. Although his involvement was minimal, he continues to be productive with what he is given, catching both of his targets on Sunday.
2015 Week 2 vs MIN (6 / 3 / 14 / 0 rec)
Lance Moore was again stat-line-eligible with a handful of catches for minimal yards. He also notched a fumble as he was stripped on his way to the turf following a reception.
2015 Week 1 vs SD (2 / 1 / 22 / 0 rec)
Involved in stat line for only one reception, Lance Moore caught a tough crossing route for 22 yards across the middle of the field.
