He's playing a full-time role in the offense and has now seen at least five targets in five straight games, which puts him on the fantasy radar. He should've had a very long touchdown on Monday night, but Foles just missed him with no defender in sight. If Allen Robinson were forced to miss this game, Mooney's floor would go up, and he'd need that because just 46.7 percent of the targets against the Saints have been directed at wide receivers. They've seen just 93 targets to the position, which is a league-low, and amounts to just 15.5 per game. When receivers do catch the ball, it goes for A TON. They've allowed 15.7 yards per reception (1st), 10.44 yards per target (2nd), and a touchdown every 10.3 targets (1st). That all amounts to 2.29 PPR points per target. To put things in perspective, if Mooney saw just five targets and was an average receiver against them, he'd score 11.5 PPR points. He's not the worst hail mary play in this game, but he's still a boom-or-bust WR5 due to his lackluster quarterback play. If Robinson were to miss the game, it would bump his floor up a bit.

Darnell Mooney grabs three balls in MNF loss

Darnell Mooney caught three of seven targets for 40 yards in the Bears’ 24-10 loss to the Rams on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Mooney tied for team lead in targets in this one, and he could've had a bigger game had Nick Foles not missed him on at least one big play. The rookie has flashed upside this season, but the quarterback play is unfortunately holding him back.
