Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Moore continues to only see four to six targets when Samuel is in the lineup, but he's producing with his opportunity. Moore should be viewed as a low-end WR2 with upside in this matchup. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
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.Bear with Kupp through the last two weeks, as he's come up short in tough matchups. The good news is that he's averaging 7.3 targets and a 23 percent target share. The matchup with Dolphins is a good one for him, as they've really struggled to defend slot-heavy receivers. Adding up the slot cornerbacks they've put out there, they've combined to allow 26-of-37 passing for 275 yards and a touchdown. While Robert Woods deals with Xavien Howard most of the day, Kupp will battle with Nik Needham, who's allowed most of the slot production in his coverage. There have been four slot-heavy receivers who've finished as top-40 receivers against the Dolphins, which should make you feel comfortable with Kupp's floor. He should be in lineups as a low-end WR2 this week.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Falcons are just 28th against fantasy wide receivers, Moore should also have a great game on TNF.The Dolphins are 16th against fantasy wide receivers, but Kupp is probably just a WR3 on a very run oriented Rams offense.
