WR - NYJ
Week 2 Outlook
Despite Jamison Crowder and Keelan Cole both being ruled out, Elijah Moore only caught one pass for -3 yards in the Jets' season opener against the Panthers.
Many were predicting a break-out first game from Moore with Jamison Crowder and Keelan Cole not being active Week 1, but it wasn't meant to be. The rookie received only four targets and was only able to corral one of them for negative yardage. There are better days ahead for Moore, but this was a disappointing debut. The return of Crowder and Cole will only make things more difficult for Moore to become a reliable receiver fantasy managers can depend on
Jets rookie wideout Elijah Moore (quad) has resumed practicing and is expected to play in Friday's preseason game.
Moore was a popular late-round pick prior to suffering this quad injury during training camp. Fantasy managers who were shying away should be ready to start targeting him again. The buzz will likely continue to grow once he gets on the field in actual game action.
New York Jets rookie WR Elijah Moore (quad) will not practice with the team this week while recovering from a quadriceps injury and will attempt to return next week, per beat writer Connor Hughes.
Moore's absence from practice will create more opportunities for Keelan Cole, Braxton Berrios, and perhaps Denzel Mims to establish reps with rookie quarterback Zach Wilson. The rookie wideout impressed during OTAs and training camp, but missing practice is valuable time that Moore cannot get back. Hopefully, the timeline for his return is accurate, and he can begin to earn reps and build chemistry with Wilson.
Jets WR Elijah Moore, who suffered a quad injury on Thursday and underwent an MRI, is day-to-day.
Luckily Moore avoided serious injury, and should be 100 percent by the start of the season. He has had an impressive rookie training camp and has a real opportunity to become the Jets' WR2 behind Corey Davis in 2021. However, rookie receivers tend to have some inconsistent production week-to-week, but the upside is there especially later in the season as the game slows down for him. Moore caught 86 receptions for 1,193 yards and eight touchdowns, while also averaging 10.8 receptions and 149.1 receiving yards per game at Ole Miss in 2020. He is a good late-round wideout to target for both depth and upside.
New York Jets WR Elijah Moore (quad) avoided serious injury during practice on Friday, per Jets' beat reporter Doug Kyed.
Moore has had an impressive rookie training camp for the Jets and avoided serious injury on Friday, causing team officials to express no concern regarding his status and availability. Moore could become the Jets' WR2 behind Corey Davis in 2021, but the growing pains of a new coaching staff and a rookie quarterback will likely result in inconsistent production week-to-week. Moore caught 86 receptions for 1,193 yards and eight touchdowns, while also averaging 10.8 receptions and 149.1 receiving yards per game at Ole Miss in 2020. Moore is a good late-round wideout to target for bench depth and possible Flex usage once he establishes a consistent role within the new-look offense led by rookie QB Zach Wilson.
