2020 Fantasy Outlook
Given the Panthers' abominable quarterback play, Moore had about as good a season as could be expected in Year 2. He notched 8.7 YPT (13th) and dropped only three passes. He made big plays (four catches of 40-plus yards) but didn't get into the end zone often, thanks to his modest red-zone use (12 targets, only two inside the 10). Moreover, Moore's rushing stats — 172 yards on 13 carries as a rookie — crashed to 40 yards on only six carries in his sophomore campaign. At 5-11, 215, and running a 4.42 40, Moore is stout, compact and unusually fast for a receiver his height and weight. He has good open-field vision and is dangerous after the catch. The acquisition of new quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is likely to be a boost, not because he's anything special as a passer, but because he's light years ahead of Kyle Allen, and his accuracy and care with the football should help keep the offense moving more reliably than it did last season. Plus, new coach Matt Rhule (and offensive coordinator Joe Brady) could install a more pass-friendly scheme than what the Panthers had in recent seasons under Ron Rivera. Moore figures to be the team's top WR target again, but the Panthers signed deep threat Robby Anderson to a two-year deal this offseason and bring back tailback Christian McCaffrey and fourth-year man Curtis Samuel, providing sturdy competition for Bridgewater's attention.

Moore (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Saints, Max Henson of the Panthers' official site reports.
ANALYSIS
Moore was spotted working out on the side during practice Friday, but the Panthers determined he wasn't on track to clear the NFL's concussion protocol in advance of Sunday's game. Shaky quarterback play wasn't enough to prevent Moore from enjoying a second-year breakout, with the 2018 first-round pick catching 87 passes for 1,175 yards and four touchdowns on 135 targets in 15 games. Prior to his early exit Week 16, the 22-year-old had ripped off seven games in a row with 75 or more receiving yards. Moore finishes with a 64.4 percent catch rate and 8.7 yards per target, despite playing in an offense that has completed just 61.0 percent of its passes for 6.6 yards per attempt. His ability to vastly outproduce the Carolina passing game as a whole bodes well for Moore's NFL future, though his ceiling for 2019 partially depends on what happens with the team's uncertain quarterback situation.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
The first receiver taken in the 2018 draft, Moore had a fine rookie season, especially considering the sorry state of the Panthers passing game for most of the year. He finished with 9.6 YPT and only one drop on 82 targets, broke three plays for more than 40 yards and also racked up 172 extra yards on the ground, giving him 960 yards from scrimmage on only 68 touches. At 5-11, 215, Moore is stout, powerful and fast (4.42 40). He's unusually quick for a heavy receiver and has good vision in the open field. Moore didn't see much red-zone work last year - only 11 looks inside the 20 - but that was with the 6-4 Devin Funchess around. Funchess is gone this year, and Moore sits atop the Panthers depth chart with only the small, quick Curtis Samuel as a significant alternate option for wideout targets. Of course, Christian McCaffrey, who broke the running back receptions record last year, also will play a big part in the passing game, and tight end Greg Olsen is set to play another year. But as long as Cam Newton's shoulder recovery goes well - so far so good at press time - this should be a better passing offense in 2019, and Moore is likely to be its top target.
The first receiver taken in the draft at pick No. 24, Moore finds himself in a crowded Carolina receiving corps, but one that's lacking a star. Devin Funchess profiles as the team's No. 1, but he's hardly more established than last year's top dog Kelvin Benjamin, who was dealt midseason during a playoff run. Newly signed Torrey Smith and Jarius Wright and last year's second-rounder Curtis Samuel are also in the mix, but likely as complementary options. At 6-0, 210, with 4.42 40 speed and good quickness, toughness and overall athleticism, Moore profiles as a faster Jarvis Landry or a bigger Steve Smith. Moore just turned 21 in April, so there's plenty of room for growth. Expect him to see targets right away, either from the slot or opposite Funchess, and there's a chance he winds up as the team's top receiver by season's end.
