Elijah Moore
21-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR
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.

Falls flat in debut
WRNew York Jets
September 12, 2021
Moore caught one of four targets for minus-3 yards in Sunday's 19-14 loss to Carolina.
ANALYSIS
Moore showed some rookie nerves in his NFL debut, as both of his first-half targets were in his hands but ended up incomplete. Things didn't get any better after halftime, even as the rest of the Jets' offense came alive around him. The rookie second-round pick apparently had a sensational camp but was unable to replicate that success when it counted. Moore should improve as he gets more comfortable, and he could continue to see plenty of playing time if Jamison Crowder (illness) or Keelan Cole (knee) aren't ready to return in Week 2 against the Patriots.
