 He's going to get a lot of work in this offense.
Isaiah Sirois

 I like Jamison Crowder this week. A lot. The slot receiver exploded against the Buffalo Bills in both of his games against them last year, and he averaged 13.5 targets per game! While a healthy Chris Herndon could take away some of his short-yardage looks, Crowder's recent success against the Bills is tough to bet against. He's got a great floor this week, and he's a great option at WR3 with WR2 upside.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Most of the time, we can say that those who have experience with the quarterback and/or offense, they have a leg up on the rest of the receivers. That's the odd thing about the Panthers this offseason. They have a new offense being installed, as well as a new quarterback. Moore saw 135 targets last year, but does the addition of Robby Anderson hurt his ceiling? Anderson does have experience under Matt Rhule. I'm still siding with Moore, who's easily the best receiver on the roster. The Raiders allowed a massive 1.94 PPR points per target last year (fifth-most) but saw just 281 wide receiver targets on the year (eighth fewest), making them look better than they were. The 9.54 yards per target they allowed was the most in the league. They acknowledged the issue and added both free agent Prince Amukamara and first-rounder Damon Arnette to their cornerback unit this offseason. They wound up cutting Amukamara because they were impressed with Arnette, though just a week later, Arnette fractured his thumb. He's reportedly going to play with a cast on, which is far from ideal when covering someone as slippery as Moore. They don't do any shadowing, so Moore should see a mixture of Trayvon Mullen, Arnette, and Lamarcus Joyner. Knowing the changes and how it may take time for the new cornerbacks to acclimate, I still feel confident starting Moore as a solid high-end WR2 this week who presents WR1 upside. I wouldn't play him in cash lineups considering all the changes on his own team and that we haven't seen how the target share will play out, but he does deserve tournament consideration.If you go and look at the games the Bills allowed to wide receivers last year, you'd see Crowder occupying two of the top three games. He crushed them for 22 receptions, 165 yards, and a touchdown in their two meetings. The other top game they allowed? Another slot-heavy receiver, Jarvis Landry. They are not a team that allows big passing plays, as just one receiver hit the 100-yard mark against them last year, but there were 14 wide receivers who caught at least five passes against them. They were consistent, that's for sure. Not only do we have that, but we also have Crowder as the only receiver who's returning to the starting lineup for Sam Darnold. It's hard to see a scenario where Crowder doesn't see at least eight targets in this game, and they'd be against the same cornerback (Taron Johnson) as last year. The Bills allowed just 10 wide receivers to finish as top-36 receivers last year, so it's not great regardless, but Crowder is the best bet on the Jets this week. Consider him a WR3 who doesn't have a massive ceiling, but he should come with a decent floor.
Jacob Wayne
Lineups
D.J. Moore is probably my favorite third/fourth-round receiver target this year and he draws an awesome Week 1 matchup as the Raiders' secondary is completely beatable. Moore put up almost 1,200 yards last year in a putrid offense. Things should be much improved around him with a new and exciting coaching staff as well as a new quarterback in Teddy Bridgewater. I expect this to be a high-scoring game as neither defense scares me and I think Moore has a WR1 Week 1.

The Panthers and Raiders game could easily turn into a shootout this weekend. If that's the case, the Panthers are going to be throwing the ball a ton and Moore could easily see over 10 targets in this game. While Moore isn't known for scoring touchdowns, which limits his upside in any format outside of Full PPR, he's going to be heavily targeted in this matchup. He's a safe WR2 this week with WR1 upside in Full PPR formats.

Vegas was just 19th against fantasy wide receivers last year, Moore has a great matchup and he should be a WR1 in Week 1.
