News: 4 days agoMoore (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.
Spin: 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.
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.
