There were just three receivers who finished with 93-plus yards in eight separate games last year. Calvin Ridley, Stefon Diggs, and... Moore. While the touchdowns were certainly lacking, there's something to be said about this stat and how undervalued Moore may be due to the lack of touchdowns. It was his first year in the offense, while Robby Anderson was brought in because he knew the offense. With Curtis Samuel out of town, we might see Moore in the slot far more often, which wouldn't be a bad thing. He's now finished with 1,175-plus yards in back-to-back seasons. It's only a matter of time before the touchdowns catch up. He's a solid WR2 to roster, who just might have top-12 upside if the touchdowns start to show up.It seems the torch has been passed from Thielen to Justin Jefferson, though it's not as if Thielen will just fade into oblivion. It goes back to the Stefon Diggs days where he had to share that production. While Thielen did finish as the No. 8 wide receiver last year, it was thanks to his 14 touchdowns on just 74 receptions and 925 yards. No other receiver finished higher than No. 18 with fewer yards than Thielen. He's also going to be 31 years old at the start of the season and has a history of back issues, presenting a bit of risk, though he does have a ton of proven production with Kirk Cousins, which can't be ignored.

DJ Moore had almost 1,200 yards in 15 games. The problem is he only caught 4 TDs. He's not a big target in the red zone which caps his upside. That said, Moore has talent. He needs Sam Darnold or P.J. Walker to be serviceable at QB to have a good year.Thielen set a personal best last season with 14 TDs. He had fantasy owners Hooked on a Thielen (That's reference to Blue Swede's song lyrics for our younger viewers haha!) Anyway, I digress, where was I? Oh yeah those TDs probably comes down a little, but maybe he'll make up for it with more yardage? Justin Jefferson will eat into some of his targets, but also may draw more coverage. The Vikings play a tough schedule. For that reason I'll downgrade him just a smidge.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
DJ Moore has been hyped as a potential breakout the past couple of seasons and it has yet to come to fruition. While Moore's certainly been fine for fantasy purposes, he has yet to take the massive leap forward that many people have been hoping for from him. Heading into 2021, there's a lot of reasons to be optimistic on him yet again though, especially once you factor in the addition of Sam Darnold at QB. Darnold is known for peppering his slot receiver with targets, which is where I'm fully expecting Moore to line up at the majority of the time. Moore should lead this WR corps in targets and he'll be an extremely valuable asset in Full PPR formats. Whether or not he can take that massive leap we've been anticipating all rides on the shoulders of Darnold. If Darnold can bounce back, Moore could smash his ADP. If not, he'll still be a safe option as a middling WR2 that will always have volume. My Very Early Projection: 82-1155-7 receiving.

Curtis Samuel gone = path to more steady volume. Darnold can't be worse than Teddy, right? 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Moore had 178.5 fantasy points in 15 games, which was a good year with no CMC to help in the running game. Moore should be in the WR2 mix playing as the lead receiver in a promising offense.Thielen feels like he overachieved a little in 2020 with 14 receiving touchdowns in 15 games. He is still a very good receiver, but I think Jefferson is a fantasy WR1 and Thielen is more of a fantasy WR2.
