It's clear that Moore is still the same highly-targeted receiver in Joe Brady's offense as he was in Scott Turner's last year, as his 22 targets rank fourth among wide receivers. He hasn't found the end zone yet, and while those will come, it may not be in Week 3. The Chargers incredible cornerback duo of Chris Harris Jr. and Casey Hayward awaits, though there's a twist to what we thought. The Chargers have deployed Harris in the slot, which means Michael Davis is starting on the perimeter. The Chargers have still allowed the third-fewest fantasy points per target (1.36) to wide receivers, and they were the fourth-best team in the league against wide receivers last year, too. It helps that they've faced just 15.8 wide receiver targets per game in that stretch. You can't bench Moore with all the targets he's getting, but you need to understand how tough of a matchup this is, knocking him down into low-end WR2 territory. I definitely prefer him over Anderson considering Moore will match up with Davis more than he will Hayward, unless they shadow Moore, which seems dangerous to leave Anderson in Davis' coverage all game.Through two weeks, here are the snap counts between these three: Swift 54, Peterson 39, Johnson 39. Gross. Here are the opportunity counts: Peterson 24, Swift 18, Johnson 16. Again, gross. Even worse is that Swift and Johnson have gotten two carries inside the 10-yard-line while Peterson has just one, which seems like it should be Peterson's role. This is going to be an ugly backfield to predict every week, though Swift should eventually establish himself as the top option. The Cardinals have surprisingly not allowed a running back more than 56 yards on the ground through two weeks. They limited Raheem Mostert to just 56 yards on 15 carries, though he did rattle off 95 yards and a touchdown through the air. Swift is clearly the preferred receiving option, as he's been in on 39 pass snaps, while Peterson and Johnson have combined for 33. Running backs have accounted for 50 percent of fantasy production against the Cardinals, which ranks as the third-highest in the league, so if the Lions are going to come anywhere close to their 24.5-point implied total, someone is likely to have value. Swift would be my choice, but as you can see, there's no guarantee. Treat him as a low-end RB3 and hope he finds his way into the end zone or sees quite a few targets. Peterson is getting the most touches but if he's not locked into goal-line work, he won't offer much upside at all. He's nothing more than a RB4 who's got a limited ceiling. I wouldn't want to start Johnson considering the 8.0 opportunities per game.

With this matchup, it's hard to be excited about any Panthers receiving weapon. Moore could be the best of the group though with his role as the short-to-intermediate receiving option in this offense. Bridgewater is going to be looking to get the ball out quickly and Moore could be a valuable low-end WR2 in Full PPR leagues.On the surface, this looks like a great matchup for the Lions RBs, but there's just no way of knowing which one in this committee is going to return value for your lineup. Peterson has looked amazing on the field through two weeks, but he's simply not getting the goal-line opportunities that would vault him into the RB2 conversation. He's nothing more than a RB4 this week.
Derek Lofland

Moore had 8 receptions for 120 yards on 13 targets in Week 2, he is a low-end WR1 against the Chargers 6th ranked fantasy wide receiver defense.
