News: 3 days agoMooney caught five of eight targets for 123 yards in a 16-14 win over the Lions on Thanksgiving.

Spin: With Allen Robinson (hamstring) out for a second straight game and Marquise Goodwin (foot) exiting early Thursday, Mooney was left as Andy Dalton's only reliable option at wideout, and the second-year speedster took full advantage by topping 120 yards for the second straight game and the third time this season. He could have trouble keeping that streak going in Week 13, however. In addition to a tough matchup against the Cardinals and the potential return of Robinson cutting into his opportunities, rookie Justin Fields (ribs) could be back under center in place of Andy Dalton, increasing the volatility of the entire Chicago passing game.

ESPN Fantasy Projection: Mooney was the 24th wide receiver selected in the 2020 draft, but the unheralded fifth-rounder ended his rookie campaign seventh in the class in targets and ninth in fantasy points. Mooney quickly locked down Chicago's No. 2 WR gig opposite Allen Robinson and ended up with a solid 61-631-4 line on 98 targets. Mooney's 61 receptions are tied with Tyreek Hill for fourth most all-time by a rookie not drafted in the first four rounds. His efficiency was poor (his 6.4 YPT was seventh lowest among 87 qualified WRs), but poor QB play was a major factor, as 23% of balls thrown his way were off target (14th highest). Mooney will play a similar - if not expanded - role in the same scheme with perhaps better QB play in 2021. Take a late flier.
