It was shocking to see the Panthers snag Moore with Calvin Ridley still on the board, but they obviously had him higher on their board. He's going to have to compete with Devin Funchess, Greg Olsen, and Christian McCaffrey for targets, which is less than ideal considering that Cam Newton isn't what we'd call an accurate quarterback. Moore might turn out to be the most productive wide receiver in Carolina, but that might not be saying much. Be prepared for a roller coaster in fantasy.

D.J. Moore goes to the Panthers with 24th pick

With the 24th pick in the NFL Draft, the Carolina Panthers have selected Maryland wide receiver D.J. Moore.

Fantasy Impact

After what was a meteoric rise during the pre-draft process, Moore is the first wide receiver taken off the board. Some have touted him as a No. 1 wide receiver on a team, though we have some concerns with him being "the guy." From a fantasy standpoint, he landed in an ideal spot, as Devin Funchess was never meant to see 120-plus targets. He's going to walk into the possession receiver role for the Panthers, which should net him 6-8 targets per game, or 95-120 targets on the season. That should be more than enough to get him into the WR4 conversation, though with Cam Newton as his quarterback, expect some inconsistencies in his numbers.
