Identifying the Next Breakout WR1: Elijah Moore (2022 Fantasy Football)

Jun 12, 2022

Our own Sam Ryner recently dug into previous wide receiver breakouts in order to understand and better predict future breakout candidates. Andrew Erickson and Derek Brown took to the task as well, sharing their candidates on a recent fantasy football podcast. Let’s take a look at one player they identified as a potential breakout WR1 candidate for 2022: Elijah Moore.

The case for Elijah Moore to be the next WR1 breakout

Elijah Moore 2022 Fantasy Football Outlook

Elijah Moore ranked as the fantasy WR2 over his last stretch of six games played.

His 16.1 fantasy points per game would have ranked fifth had he continued the production the remainder of the season. Unfortunately, his season was cut short due to injuries and COVID-19 implications. The addition of Garrett Wilson makes Moore’s second-year ascension less certain as he did not have much target competition during his scorching finish outside of veteran Jamison Crowder.
