2020 Fantasy Outlook
Given the Panthers' abominable quarterback play last year, Moore had about as good a season as could be expected in Year 2. He notched 8.7 YPT (13th) and dropped only three passes. He made big plays (four catches of 40-plus yards) but didn't get into the end zone often, thanks to his modest red-zone use (12 targets, only two inside the 10). Moreover, Moore's rushing stats - 172 yards on 13 carries as a rookie - crashed to 40 yards on only six carries in his sophomore campaign. At 5-11, 215, and running a 4.42 40, Moore is stout, compact and unusually fast for a receiver his height and weight. He has good open-field vision and is dangerous after the catch. The acquisition of new quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is likely to be a boost, not because he's anything special as a passer, but because he's light years ahead of last year's QB, Kyle Allen, and his accuracy and care with the football should help keep the offense moving more reliably than it did last season. Plus, new coach Matt Rhule (and OC Joe Brady) could install a more pass-friendly scheme than what the Panthers had in recent seasons under Ron Rivera. Moore figures to be the team's top WR target again, but the Panthers signed deep threat Robby Anderson to a twoyear deal this offseason and bring back tailback Christian McCaffrey and fourth-year man Curtis Samuel, providing sturdy competition for Bridgewater's attention.

Gets fifth-year option
WRCarolina Panthers
April 29, 2021
The Panthers are exercising their fifth-year option on Moore's rookie contract, keeping him under team control through 2022, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
This was a foregone conclusion, with Moore producing 3,156 receiving yards and 234 rushing yards before his 24th birthday. He's scored only 10 touchdowns in 46 games, but the yardage should eventually translate to more trips to the end zone, especially if the Panthers can find a franchise QB. The team has Sam Darnold, P.J. Walker and Will Grier under contract ahead of the 2021 NFL Draft.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
The first receiver taken in the 2018 draft, Moore had a fine rookie season, especially considering the sorry state of the Panthers passing game for most of the year. He finished with 9.6 YPT and only one drop on 82 targets, broke three plays for more than 40 yards and also racked up 172 extra yards on the ground, giving him 960 yards from scrimmage on only 68 touches. At 5-11, 215, Moore is stout, powerful and fast (4.42 40). He's unusually quick for a heavy receiver and has good vision in the open field. Moore didn't see much red-zone work last year - only 11 looks inside the 20 - but that was with the 6-4 Devin Funchess around. Funchess is gone this year, and Moore sits atop the Panthers depth chart with only the small, quick Curtis Samuel as a significant alternate option for wideout targets. Of course, Christian McCaffrey, who broke the running back receptions record last year, also will play a big part in the passing game, and tight end Greg Olsen is set to play another year. But as long as Cam Newton's shoulder recovery goes well - so far so good at press time - this should be a better passing offense in 2019, and Moore is likely to be its top target.
The first receiver taken in the draft at pick No. 24, Moore finds himself in a crowded Carolina receiving corps, but one that's lacking a star. Devin Funchess profiles as the team's No. 1, but he's hardly more established than last year's top dog Kelvin Benjamin, who was dealt midseason during a playoff run. Newly signed Torrey Smith and Jarius Wright and last year's second-rounder Curtis Samuel are also in the mix, but likely as complementary options. At 6-0, 210, with 4.42 40 speed and good quickness, toughness and overall athleticism, Moore profiles as a faster Jarvis Landry or a bigger Steve Smith. Moore just turned 21 in April, so there's plenty of room for growth. Expect him to see targets right away, either from the slot or opposite Funchess, and there's a chance he winds up as the team's top receiver by season's end.
