D.J. Moore Week 8 Outlook - Falcons at Panthers

By Mike Tagliere (FantasyPros), Mon, Oct 26th 2020, 12:10pm EDT

He's now totaled 93 yards in each of his last three games. Like, exactly 93 yards. Weird, right? That's the good news. The not-so-good news is that he's now seen six or less targets in four of the last five games. He's averaging 10.7 yards per target, which is fantastic, but he needs to remain efficient in order to keep posting WR2 numbers, as the volume isn't quite worthy of a top-20 wide receiver. Fortunately, he shouldn't need too many targets to do well this week against the Falcons. They've allowed a massive 223.0 yards per game to wide receivers alone. The Falcons starting perimeter cornerbacks on Moore's side is Kendall Sheffield, and he's allowed a league-high 2.77 yards per snap (no other cornerback is above 2.39), so this is a match made in heaven. Moore only saw five targets the first time these two teams played but he walked out of that game with 93 yards and a touchdown. Knowing there have been 12 receivers who've scored 12.1-plus PPR points against the Falcons, you shouldn't have any concerns about playing Moore as a rock-solid WR2 this week.
