TE Evan Moore - Free Agent
|6-5, 236||Born: 1-3-1985||College: Stanford||Drafted: ---|
2012 Week 7 vs SF (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Moore dropped a perfect pass from Russell Wilson down the sideline against good coverage. The defender was on him, but it's a catch he should have made.
2012 Week 8 vs DET (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Moore's lone target came in the red zone, but a poor throw from Wilson spoiled any shot at a TD. Behind the coverage, Moore had to work back to the ball instead of being able to use his size advantage to elevate above the coverage.
2012 Week 14 vs ARI (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Moore received some late playing time, but did little to impress. He was called for offensive pass interference on a deep corner route that would have been a long touchdown. Later in the fourth quarter, Moore also had a false start penalty.
2012 Week 16 vs WAS (2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
The newly minted Eagle could not control a pass from Nick Foles in the end zone that would have set up a game-tying extra point attempt from kicker Alex Henery. Foles looked Moore's way another time in the red zone, on third-and-eighteen at the Redskins' twenty yard-line. Moore did not log a reception against Washington.
2011 Week 1 vs CIN (6 / 3 / 35 / 1 rec)
His 1st target was a TD towards the end of the 1st half to give Cleveland the lead 14-13 at that point. Moore is a red zone guy and if you play in TE heavy leagues with extra points for receptions, Moore is a decent play as they will be looking to get him involved when they are inside the 10 or 20 yard line. He had another target in the end zone and dropped the ball otherwise he would have ended the day with two touchdowns, Watson remains the guy to see the most plays over the course of the game but Moore is a red zone threat. The other interesting thing about Moore is they will line him up at the WR spot. That happened on the touchdown as well as a couple other plays in the game including a long target in the 3rd quarter which would have been a touchdown. When the back up TE is lining up as a WR you know the starting WRs are not the best.
2011 Week 2 vs IND (1 / 1 / 16 / 1 rec)
Moore was able to score a touchdown on a big that can be almost fully credited to his QB for making a terrific play. McCoy was able to evade pressure from the pocket and find Moore for a strike in the endzone as Moore was wide open. Moore failed to make any other impression on this game however.
2011 Week 3 vs MIA (3 / 2 / 19 / 0 rec)
Evan was a non factor much of the day. Cleveland did not operate in the red zone very often so he didn't get any of those targets that he normally gets. He also was not lined up and targeted in the slot of even as a WR which he does sometimes. Miami has been terrible covering up the TE and Ben Watson did some damage but Moore was unable to really be involved in the offense.
2011 Week 6 vs OAK (3 / 2 / 12 / 0 rec)
Moore had another disappointing day without touchdowns, and if he does not catch a touchdown then he really holds little fantasy value in this offense. The Browns do split him out wide to use his 6'6 frame as advantage but it still seems like he just does not get enough snaps to be a consistent fantasy producer. Moore had a nice 12 yd reception where McCoy threw up a high ball, and Moore skied to haul it in for a first down.
2011 Week 7 vs SEA (4 / 4 / 35 / 0 rec)
Moore picked up the slack when Watson left the game, finishing with four catches on five targets. He was reliable but didn't present enough matchup problems to be worth exploiting. Moore found himself wide open on 3rd down for an easy catch and first down conversion; then was targeted on a deep play action, but the throw was just a tad short and the linebacker covering him was able to scoop it up instead. In the fourth quarter, he made another big catch to move the chains. If Watson misses any time, he could become a factor in the passing game, and possibly in the red zone.
2011 Week 8 vs SF (2 / 2 / 17 / 0 rec)
Moore had another disappointing day because if he does not catch a touchdown then he really holds little fantasy value in this offense. The Browns split him out wide to use his 6'6 frame to their advantage, so while his snaps seem to be increasing each week over his last few games, his production has not. He lines up as a WR more than he does at the inline TE position.
2011 Week 9 vs HOU (2 / 2 / 11 / 0 rec)
Evan Moore was relatively quiet, catching only a pair of short passes.
2011 Week 12 vs CIN (1 / 1 / 3 / 0 rec)
Not enough opportunities to go around for Moore to do much in this game. His only reception was a dump-off when McCoy was about to get crushed by the Bengals' rush, with Moore being swarmed under 12-yards shy of the first down.
2011 Week 13 vs BAL (3 / 2 / 28 / 1 rec)
Moore lined up out wide a lot in this game and saw a lot more opportunities as a result. His first red zone target was a well-run post route and he simply dropped the 3 yard TD pass. He did hold on late in the 4th quarter when he got behind the defense, catching a perfect pass with no one in his vicinity. McCoy made a much more concerted effort to get him involved, and if not for the drop in the end zone it would have been a really nice day for Moore.
2011 Week 14 vs PIT (5 / 4 / 55 / 0 rec)
Moore is a great talent with hybrid wide receiver/tight end skills. Cleveland uses him most in the red zone as that is where he's the most effective. On the team's first drive - the only one that ended in points - their biggest play was Moore's 33-yard catch where he beat super-athletic linebacker Lawrence Timmons in coverage. Moore is a physical freak who can be a very effective jump-ball receiver.
2011 Week 16 vs BAL (7 / 5 / 35 / 1 rec)
Moore was very involved in the offense from the beginning and proved to be one of Wallace's most reliable targets. His one mistake came in the second quarter when he slid on a slant route and the ball went where he'd been if he'd just stayed up. He showed good strong hands on his TD catch. It was a high throw and the defender behind him was trying to knock the ball away but Moore won the play. Later in the 4th quarter Moore showed great concentration catching a pass over the middle as he was sandwiched between 2 defenders.
2011 Week 17 vs PIT (6 / 4 / 39 / 0 rec)
Moore is a very uniquely talented player given the athletic ability he possesses for a player his size. Perhaps his best strength is being able to elevate over defenders and catch jump balls in the endzone. He was given a chance to do just that when Wallace avoided the rush and fired deep. Moore elevated over safety Ryan Clark, but the ball went through his hands. It would have been a tough play but was catchable. Moore is a player that needs to develop in the offseason and grow into a guy that can give his young QB a reliable target in the middle of the field.
2010 Week 1 vs TB (5 / 3 / 87 / 0 rec)
Evan is an up and coming TE that really needs to be on a better team or system. He made the Bucs pay several times for not covering him tighter. He is very strong and tough to get on the ground once he gets a head of steam going. Moore looked fast in the open field and Delhomme looked comfortable throwing him the football. Why Cleveland didn't go to Moore more often is a mystery. In this offense he will be inconsistent and has to share a lot of the offense right now with Ben Watson but Moore was impressive and someone worth keeping an eye on.
2010 Week 4 vs CIN (2 / 1 / 24 / 1 rec)
Moore's sole reception, a 24-yard touchdown, was due in large part to a mix-up in coverage, but it was still a nicely run route and catch regardless.
2010 Week 6 vs PIT (5 / 4 / 84 / 0 rec)
Moore showed off some great athleticism in this game. At 6'6" and 250 lbs, he was able to get downfield and make some longer plays (he had a 19 yard catch and a 34 yarder). Moore provides his quarterbacks a very big target and provides a "just throw it up" level of confidence due to his height. If the Browns use Moore and Watson correctly, their top THREE pass-catchers (including Hillis) could include zero wide receivers.
2010 Week 10 vs NYJ (3 / 1 / 18 / 0 rec)
Moore was targeted several times but only caught one, though it was for a big gain on the game-tying drive. For the most part when in, Moore was a blocker.
2010 Week 11 vs JAX (3 / 3 / 69 / 0 rec)
Moore was quiet until he hauled in two long targets late in the fourth quarter on a go-ahead FG drive and then a failed desperation. He is probably the best downfield receiving target the Browns have, but he doesn't get enough targets to be worth rostering in redraft leagues right now. He should however be remembered a long-term prospect in deep dynasty and TE premium leagues.
2010 Week 12 vs CAR (3 / 2 / 16 / 0 rec)
Moore fumbled inside the five and generally seemed kind of soft on his targets. He can get downfield and into his routes better than most TEs, but he isn't doing anything to demand more targets right now.
2009 Week 13 vs SD (11 / 6 / 80 / 0 rec)
Moore, who was playing his first career game in the NFL, took over the game early on, getting wide open all over the field. He picked up 16 along the sideline, got lost in the secondary for a nice gain down the middle, and picked up chunks of yardage against the San Diego secondary. He did see one target in the end zone, but it was on a technicality; in reality, it was a throwaway. QB Brady Quinn just happened to be finding him more frequently early on, probably because he was the least-recognizable of Cleveland's receiving options. With a team-high 80 yards on the day, he likely won't fly under the radar in any games going forward.
2009 Week 14 vs PIT (6 / 2 / 34 / 0 rec)
Evan Moore started off the game with two big catches, including a nice 24-yard gainer down the seam in which he caught the ball with just one hand. Moore is a nice sleeper tight end - but likely has more value in 2010 than for the rest of this year as the Browns are just not throwing the ball down the field well with Brady Quinn.
2009 Week 16 vs OAK (3 / 1 / 19 / 0 rec)
Moore was targeted on the first pass of the game and pulled in a deep bass on a tight end corner route between two defenders. The Browns split him out wide on a number of snaps. He was targeted on a sideline route when matched up on a linebacker on one of those snaps. He showed good athleticism to go up and grab the ball, but it was knocked away by the defender before Moore hit the ground.
2009 Week 17 vs JAX (2 / 2 / 18 / 0 rec)
Moore pulled in a pass inside the five yard line but was unable to roll into the end zone.
