2021 Fantasy Outlook
The 34th overall pick in this year's draft, Moore (5-9, 178) profiles as a slot receiver, only one with blistering 4.35 speed. That could make current slot man Jamison Crowder expendable, leaving Moore to compete for targets with last year’s second-rounder Denzel Mims and offseason free-agent acquisition Corey Davis. Moore could make things easier on rookie QB Zach Wilson with his quickness, agility and speed in the short areas of the field, but Davis and Mims are likely to see more red-zone work.

Hot finish before injury as rookie
WRNew York Jets
Quadriceps
January 14, 2022
Moore (quadriceps) finished his rookie season with 43 catches for 538 yards and five touchdowns. He added 54 yards and a touchdown on five rushing attempts.
ANALYSIS
The second-round pick out of Ole Miss burst onto the scene with a terrific training camp and preseason, but New York's shaky quarterback play led to a slow start for Moore. He heated up in the middle of the season, catching 34 of 51 targets for 459 yards and five touchdowns over his last six games before a quadriceps injury and stint in COVID-19 protocols ended Moore's campaign after 11 appearances. The arrow's pointing up for Moore heading into his sophomore season, and he's expected to be fully healthy by then and ready to build on his strong play prior to getting hurt.
