News: 5 days agoMoore caught four of eight targets for 47 yards in Sunday's 25-6 loss to the Patriots.
Spin: Moore looked more comfortable in his second game after struggling in his debut. Only slot receiver Braxton Berrios saw more targets from rookie quarterback Zach Wilson, so Moore's quickly being integrated into the Jets' admittedly underwhelming offense. Jamison Crowder (groin) will command targets when he returns, be it in Week 3 against the Broncos or later, but he's more likely to cut into Berrios' volume than Moore's.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: The Jets selected Moore with the 34th pick of April's draft. The Ole Miss product is an athletic 5-foot-9, 185-pound slot receiver with good speed and quickness. He has reliable hands and post-catch tackle-breaking ability but can also get deep for a big play. His size may limit his ability to play outside and beat press, but he has the look of a high-volume slot target who can help out as a rusher and returner. He aligned inside 92% of the time and handled a healthy 27% target share while posting a 91% adjusted catch rate during his final three FBS seasons. Moore's 2021 fantasy outlook is clouded by a rookie QB (Zach Wilson) and a very crowded WR room (Jamison Crowder, Corey Davis, Denzel Mims, Keelan Cole), but his pedigree makes him well worth a late-round flier.
