Kevin Wheeler
The Draft Zone
DJ Moore has three consecutive seasons with at least 1,100 receiving yards and he might now have the best QB he's ever had throwing him the ball. He's one of the most skilled receivers in football, he just rarely scores TD's. Baker peppered Jarvis Landry with targets in Cleveland, DJ will turn those targets into top-tier production.Metcalf scored 19.63 PPG in his three (plus) games with Geno Smith last year, which would have been the WR5 last season. Metcalf is signing a three-year, $72 million extension that includes $58.2 million guaranteed, per source. Deal includes $30 million signing bonus, the highest ever for a WR. They will be utilizing him as much as possible. My ranking is well ahead of ADP, you can wait another round and still get him in most drafts.
Derek Brown
FantasyPros
Despite a smattering of atrocious quarterback play on his plate, D.J. Moore has been a model of consistent fantasy production. In fantasy, Moore has hit at least 1,157 receiving yards in each of the last three seasons as the WR14, WR23, and WR28. Moore has remained an efficient player despite his signal-caller quality, ranking 23rd in yards per route run (minimum 50 targets per PFF) and 16th in receiving yards per game. The issue capping his ceiling has been touchdowns, but unless he gets more usage near pay dirt in 2022, he's no more than a mid-WR2. Since 2019 Moore has ranked 29th, 60th, and 25th in red-zone targets.D.K. Metcalf played last season with Geno Smith and a watered-down version of Russell Wilson under center and still managed to finish as WR20. While the pairing of Smith and Drew Lock might hamper his ceiling, Metcalf's floor is as a low-end WR2. Metcalf's volume and efficiency should still lend to spike weeks regardless of the quarterback. Last season he was eighth in target share (27.3%), 24th in targets per snap, and 20th in yards per route run (minimum 50 targets, per PFF).
Andrew Erickson
FantasyPros
There's no denying D.J. Moore's talent or elite usage for the Carolina Panthers. He was just one of 11 WRs to run a route on at least 90% of their team's dropbacks to go along with a top-three air yards share (36%) and seventh-ranked target rate per route run (25%). Most wideouts that own this usage are no-doubt top-12 fantasy options, but Moore's abysmal quarterback play continues to hold him back. He only finished as the WR19 last season in half-point scoring, as his QB play was graded out as the stone worst in the NFL per PFF. The Panthers literally had the worst QB play last year across several metrics including EPA per dropback and success rate. But with Baker Mayfield in Carolina, it's an upgrade for all parties involved. It's not being discussed enough that before Mayfield separated his shoulder in Week 6 he ranked sixth in yards per attempt (8.5) and 7th in aDOT (9.6). The Browns quarterback has shown the ability to support multiple fantasy weapons (not-named Odell Beckham Jr. when healthy) so Moore should be firmly at the top of the fantasy WR2 conversation during the fantasy football draft season. Jarvis Landry - as the Browns No. 1 - finished as WR19 and WR13 in half-point scoring in 2018/2019 with Mayfield at quarterback. Mayfield also boasts the highest passing TD% of any QB Moore has ever played with, suggesting a career-high in touchdowns is well within reach for 2022.The difference between having Geno Smith/Drew Lock at quarterback versus Russell Wilson cannot be overstated enough. It's a horrible situation to be in and puts D.K. Metcalf in a tough spot. Although the alpha wideout did rise to occasion under a small sample size last season, averaging 14.9 fantasy points per game (15th - same as his final season-long standing) without Wilson at quarterback for three games. But I am suspect that removing their quarterback that led the NFL in yards per attempt (10.4), passer rating (133.6) and passer rating from a clean pocket (130.9) before his finger injury is going to create a much larger impact over a 17-game sample size.
Mark Ringo
Sleepers and Busts
Moore is an exciting young speedy WR. However, he's undersized which caps his TD upside in the red zone. Christian McCaffrey is back. He'll command a bunch of targets. In addition, Terrace Marshall should take another step forward. At the end of the day, it all comes down to Baker Mayfield. It's hard to envision Moore justifying his high draft price (WR 16) given the struggles of the Panthers' offense. And if things go south, head coach Matt Rhule could lose his job this season. Mayfield just got there. He has to learn the playbook quickly and develop timing with his WRs. That's a recipe for disaster, even if the QB is named Baker. (See what I did there Baker, recipe? Haha!) Needs Moore fantasy sugar for Ringo. I'm out.Without Russell Wilson, the Seahawks' offense takes a major hit. No disrespect to Geno Smith or Drew Lock, but Russell Wilson is a future Hall of Famer. His scrambling ability covers up leaky pass protection and creates big plays. Without Russ, the entire offense will suiffer, including Metcalf. WR 18 seems way too high for a WR on what figures to be a struggling offense. No thanks.

Moore had 1,105 yards from scrimmage and four touchdowns in the fantasy season. He has WR1 ability, but the Panthers have never surrounded him with a great quarterback. While Baker Mayfield is not a great quarterback, he at least has the potential to give Moore a high enough floor to justify WR2 status most weeks.D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Locket are both very good receivers, but they were both inconsistent playing with Russell Wilson. Now, they have to try to put up numbers with one of the worst QB situations in the NFL. Metcalf is probably the better option due to his size in the red zone, but both are extremely volatile on a team that is going to struggle to throw the ball.

7/6: Baker Mayfield is the best QB DJ Moore has ever played with, which is criminal to DJ. Still, never topping 4 TDs or WR16, I am not ready to go all-in like most because of Baker.Can't trust any SEA Weapons right now til I know more about the QB situation

 unfortunately DK will be playing for the Russell-less Seattle Seahawks. Although he is extremely talented WR, I expect Seattle to run the ball at a very high rate and the QB play to be lackluster at best. This will be DK's worst season and likely a player I avoid in drafts.

Has consistently clocked in as a back-end Top 20 WR despite being tied to sub-par QB play - any kind of improvement for CAR in that regard should treat Moore wellCaught 4 TD passes in 3+ games with Geno Smith at QB in 2021, so there is at least some hope that all is not lost for Metcalf with Russell Wilson now in Denver
