Carolina Panthers WR D.J. Moore racked up eight receptions for 120 yards on 13 targets in Week 2 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: Fantasy owners might still complain about the lack of touchdowns, but this was a markedly better showing that Moore's opening effort against Las Vegas Raiders. Moore remains a decent WR3 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams. The Panthers travel to meet the Chargers in Week 3.

Carolina Panthers WR D.J. Moore checked in with four catches and 54 yards on nine targets in Week 1 against the Las Vegas Raiders.
Huddle Up: Moore saw fellow wideout Robby Anderson go over 100 yards and score a touchdown, which fantasy owners cannot enjoy seeing. Don't worry, Moore will be just fine, and he remains a decent WR3/4 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 2 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Carolina Panthers WR D.J. Moore has been one of the standouts on offense during training camp, according to Jonathan Alexander of the Charlotte Observer. Per Alexander, Moore's route-running has been efficient and the bulk of cornerbacks he has faced 'have struggled to contain him.'
Huddle Up: This report probably doesn't come as much of a surprise to the majority of Moore's fantasy owners, but it does lend support to the possibility that he will push for 150-plus targets after amassing 135 in 15 games last year. With Curtis Samuel reportedly struggling and Teddy Bridgewater providing capable quarterback play, Moore could easily top 100 catches for an offense that will need to cover for what figures to be one of the worst defenses in the league. A top-five fantasy finish at receiver should not be ruled out.

Carolina Panthers WR D.J. Moore needs to be more imposing this season, according to new head coach Matt Rhule. 'DJ has to take another step this year and be that physical, dominant, go-to receiver that on third-and-5 you're going to,' Rhule said.
Huddle Up: Well, Moore won't have much competition to be the Panthers' go-to option this season. He topped 1,000 yards in his sophomore campaign but still scored just four touchdowns. Though quarterback play deserves a large share of the blame, he'll need to find ways to produce to live up to his billing as a top-tier WR2. Any risk associated with him is largely on his team as an expected bottom-feeder.

Carolina Panthers WR D.J. Moore forced 30 missed tackles on receptions over the last two seasons - the most by any receiver and the second-highest mark by a receiver or tight end over that stretch - according to Pro Football Focus.
Huddle Up: While some may believe the arrival of Teddy Bridgewater is a bad thing for Moore, it's easy to forget the bulk of what Moore did last season (87 catches, 1,175 yards and four touchdowns) came with Kyle Allen as his quarterback. Bridgewater should be a minor upgrade at the very least, so fantasy owners shouldn't hesitate to draft Moore as a strong WR2 option this summer.

Carolina Panthers WR D.J. Moore finished his sophomore season with 87 catches on 135 targets for 1,175 yards after logging 55 receptions on 82 targets for 788 yards as a rookie.
Huddle Up: The jump in production from Moore is encouraging, especially when you consider that he missed almost two full games and had to deal with an injury to starting quarterback Cam Newton. Moore will head into 2020 as a WR2 in all fantasy formats.
