22-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR
New York Jets
2022 Fantasy Outlook
Drafted 34th overall in 2021, Moore was part of an offseason revamp that saw the Jets add QB Zach Wilson and fellow wideout Corey Davis. Of the three, only Moore met expectations, overcoming a sluggish start to become the team's top weapon during the middle part of the season. His 4.35 speed and lateral agility were on full display from late October to early December, a six-game stretch in which Moore caught 34 of 51 targets for 459 yards and five touchdowns. During that time, he had no fewer than six targets, three catches or 43 yards in any game, while Davis was in and out of the lineup with hip and groin injuries. Unfortunately, that was the end of the road, as Moore then joined Davis on the sidelines for the final five weeks of the season while dealing with a quad injury and COVID-19. Neither issue figures to impact his offseason preparation, and Moore now has a chance to establish himself ahead of Davis and first-round pick Garrett Wilson as the No. 1 option, after averaging seven targets per game as a rookie (and with solid efficiency numbers, given the terrible quarterback play). Of course, Moore's development is only half of the equation, as fantasy production will also depend on Zach Wilson becoming a serviceable NFL quarterback. Read Past Outlooks

Has disappointing sophomore season
WRNew York Jets
January 9, 2023
Moore caught his only target for 11 yards in Sunday's 11-6 loss to the Dolphins. He finished the season with 37 catches on 65 targets for 446 yards and one touchdown.
ANALYSIS
Moore was expected to take a step forward after racking up 538 yards and five touchdowns in just 11 games as a rookie. Instead, he regressed in every facet except availability. His only absence came Week 7, when Moore was sent home after requesting a trade. The second-round pick from the 2021 NFL Draft returned the following week and remains in the Jets' plans moving forward. An upgrade under center could revitalize Moore's career, but he's well behind 2022 first-round pick Garrett Wilson in the team's wide receiver pecking order.

2021 Fantasy Outlook
The 34th overall pick in this year's draft, Moore (5-9, 178) profiles as a slot receiver, only one with blistering 4.35 speed. That could make current slot man Jamison Crowder expendable, leaving Moore to compete for targets with last year’s second-rounder Denzel Mims and offseason free-agent acquisition Corey Davis. Moore could make things easier on rookie QB Zach Wilson with his quickness, agility and speed in the short areas of the field, but Davis and Mims are likely to see more red-zone work.
