Can D.J. Moore Lead the Panthers in Receptions in 2019?

A detailed look at D.J. Moore's fantasy prospects for 2019.

THREE REASONS D.J. MOORE WON’T LEAD THE TEAM IN RECEPTIONS

  1. Christian McCaffrey will continue to be heavily used in the passing game.
  2. Curtis Samuel will also see his role expand, cutting into Moore’s potential targets.
  3. Norv Turner doesn’t lock on one target as a play caller.

SUMMARY

While Moore won’t lead the team in targets, there’s a good probability he’ll finish second in target distribution, behind only Christian McCaffrey. Also fortuitous is the fact that Moore will be asked to run more routes that draw on his after-the-catch ability. That will be enough to lead to a slight-but-healthy bump in his numbers. No matter if Cam Newton or Will Grier is at the helm for the Panthers, the timing-based offense that Norv Turner has incorporated should be one that is a perfect fit for Moore and helps him build on a magnificent rookie year. Moore’s current ADP in the sixth round is justified, but expect it to creep higher as the summer wears on. It would be unwise to target Moore, in spite of our optimistic outlook for him, earlier than the fifth round of 12-team drafts.
