Rondale Moore has been a revelation for fantasy managers so far this season. He's the WR19 on the entire year up to this point and is producing ridiculous numbers for a rookie WR. With the offense being as high-powered as it is, Moore has been able to take advantage of his limited snap share and make an impact for fantasy lineups. He only has an ADOT of 3.9 yards on the entire season, but he's averaging a ridiculous 14.3 YAC/Reception. In fact, 157 of Moore's 183 receiving yards have come after the catch. In this matchup against the Jaguars, who have struggled to slow down opposing passing games like Houston and Denver, Moore should be in line for another big performance. He can be viewed as a high-end FLEX play with massive upside.

Moore's average depth of target this season is 3.6 yards, and that number was pumped up by Moore's 77-yard TD last week, which he caught 37 yards downfield. I don't have a good answer to this question, but I'll ask it anyway: Why is the low aDOT working for Rondale but not for Laviska Shenault in Jacksonville? Does it have to do more with the quality of the quarterbacking, the quality of the systems, neither or both? Again, I don't claim to have an answer, but I find it interesting that the analyst crowd curses Shenault's low aDOT but has no problem with (and almost celebrates) Rondale's low aDOT. Anyway ... I mostly just wanted to find an angle on Rondale other than his sub-50% snap shares not really mattering because the Cardinals are proactively trying to scheme up ways to get the ball in his hands whenever he's out there. I have him ranked as a high-end WR4 but will try to find ways to sneak him into as many of my lineups as possible.

Many expected a solid rookie season from Moore, but to be in the position he's in so quickly? Through two weeks, Moore sports an 11/182/1 receiving line on 13 targets. It's still early, but it appears Moore has emerged as Arizona's WR2. Considering how prolific this passing offense is, Moore should be the top waiver add of the week.

Moore still isn't playing as many snaps as A.J. Green or Christian Kirk, but Kliff Kingsbury is using the rookie whenever he's on the field. Moore hauled in 7-of-7 targets for 114 yards and a touchdown in Week 2, and his playing time is trending in the right direction. He's a priority waiver wire add in leagues where he's still available. Arizona faces the lowly Jaguars in Week 3.
