New York Jets WR Elijah Moore caught four passes for 47 yards against the New England Patriots in Week 2. He was targeted eight times during the game.
Huddle Up: Moore was second on the team in targets this week but was held to under 50 yards. He should improve steadily during his rookie season but can be avoided in fantasy leagues for now.

New York Jets WR Elijah Moore (quadriceps) likely will not participate in practice this week, according to head coach Robert Saleh. The team hopes he will be able to practice next week.
Huddle Up: Moore has been performing well at practice during training camp, but fantasy players will need to monitor the situation to see how long he may be sidelined. Moore is in line to be a top-three receiver for the Jets and could be a late round pick in fantasy leagues.

New York Jets WR Elijah Moore's (quadriceps) quadriceps injury is not believed to be serious, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Moore probably will return to practice in the next week or two. It appears like he will be a top-three receiver for Jets and may see a handful of targets each game. He could be a depth option for fantasy players but will not be a starting option most weeks.

New York Jets WR Elijah Moore (quadriceps) left practice early Thursday, Aug. 12, with a quadriceps injury, according to head coach Robert Saleh. He will undergo an MRI later Thursday and could miss the the Jets' preseason opener Saturday against the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: The rookie wideout still should remain an end-of-your-WR-bench player unless the MRI reveals worse news than expected.

New York Jets WR Elijah Moore worked with the first team - ahead of Keelan Cole - on the first play of practice for the first time Tuesday, Aug. 3.
Huddle Up: It appears Moore has been too good in offseason workouts and training camp for the new coaching staff to continue deferring to the veteran. Expect Moore to start opposite Corey Davis and Jamison Crowder (slot) when the Jets take the field against the Carolina Panthers in the regular-season opener.

New York Jets WR Elijah Moore has been 'unstoppable' through five days of training camp and 'one of the best players' over that span, according to DJ Bien-Aime II of the New York Daily News.
'He's got the ability to play outside, inside, gadget, whatever you want to do. The reason why he's able to do that is because of his mental capacity, the young man is very smart. ... He knows all three positions at the receiver spot. And because of it and his ability to move around, he's gonna have a bright future,' head coach Robert Saleh said.
Huddle Up: Bien-Aime believes that Moore is battling with Keelan Cole for a job opposite Corey Davis because the former Tennessee Titan and Jamison Crowder (slot) have their spots "locked up." The drumbeat for Moore has been consistent throughout the offseason and his film at Ole Miss backs it up. If Moore isn't a starter in Week 1, he will be shortly thereafter. There's a reasonable chance he ends up being the team's best receiver as a rookie and serves as a solid fantasy WR3 option.

New York Jets second-round pick WR Elijah Moore signed a four-year, $8.94 million deal with a $3.86 million signing bonus.
Huddle Up: Moore doesn't have a lot of competition and could be worthy of a late-round flyer to watch in training camp.

New York Jets WR Elijah Moore has been 'near unstoppable' in the red zone during OTAs, according to Connor Hughes of The Athletic.
Huddle Up: The hype has already begun building around Moore, and the Jets aren't exactly loaded at the receiver position. He could carve out a steady role sooner rather than later, and he is an interesting late-round flier in redraft leagues.

New York Jets second-round WR Elijah Moore has been getting 'consistently open by creating constant separation with his lightning quickness' throughout organized team activities.
Huddle Up: Beat writer Connor Hughes of The Athletic took it a step further with his praise of Moore, suggesting the rookie has "been the most impressive player at OTAs and it's not really close." It seems only a matter of time before the Jets move on from Jamison Crowder and feature Moore in the slot. While it would be a bit premature to anoint him a potential fantasy starter already in 2021, there's little question he will have a real shot at 60-plus catches if Crowder is out of the picture.

New York Jets WR Elijah Moore has the ability to line up at several different spots in the offense, according to general manager Joe Douglas.
Huddle Up: Moore could see a majority of his snaps in the slot but may also see time at outside receiver and possibly in the backfield. He will be working with a rookie quarterback but could be a late round option in deeper leagues.
