New Panthers wideout

Moore and the Panthers have agreed to terms on a contract, Bill Voth of the Panthers' official site reports.

Analysis: Moore is coming off three solid seasons with Seattle, and across 16 games in 2020 he logged 35 catches for 417 yards and a career-high six touchdowns, though his average catch distance dropped to 11.9 from over 17.0 the last two years. The 26-year-old won't have the advantage of working with Russel Wilson any more, which could detract from his already marginal fantasy value, but he'll provide the Panthers an option for the No. 3 receiver gig following the departure of Curtis Samuel.

Impressive campaign ends poorly

Moore caught his lone target for one yard and rushed once for four yards in Saturday's 30-20 wild-card loss to the Rams.

Analysis: Moore was nonexistent for a second straight game to finish the season. The 2017 seventh-round pick had some impressive performances this season, as he finished with career highs in receptions (35) and touchdowns (six), but his 417 receiving yards was short of the 445 he produced back in 2018. Moore also rushed the ball eight times for 61 yards. He continues to show a knack for the big play, and he was targeted 13 times in the red zone this year. The Seahawks will have to make a decision on Moore this offseason, as he'll turn 26 years old later in January and he's set to be an unrestricted free agent in March.

Earns incentive with late reception

Moore was targeted once and caught a five-yard pass in Sunday's 26-23 win over the 49ers.

Analysis: The Seahawks appeared to be in victory formation to close out the game, but quarterback Russell Wilson called an audible, drawing up a quick pop pass to Moore. Wilson disclosed after the game that Moore reached a $100,000 incentive from the reception, according to Ben Arthur of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. Moore finishes the regular season with 35 catches (47 targets) for 417 yards and six touchdowns, adding 61 yards on eight carries.

Catches deep pass

Moore hauled in his lone target for a 45-yard gain in Sunday's 20-9 win over the Rams.

Analysis: On the opening drive of the second half, Moore made a deep catch down the right sideline on third down to help set up the Seahawks' first touchdown of the game. This was Moore's third reception of more than 40 yards this season, setting a new career high in the category.

Minimal usage in win

Moore caught two of four targets for 10 yards in Sunday's 20-15 win over Washington. He also carried once for five yards.

Analysis: Moore finished with fewer than 20 yards for the sixth straight game. He continues to run ahead of rookie Freddie Swain, but the margin is getting slimmer, as Moore out-snapped Swain by just 21-16 in this outing. Moore has appeal for daily fantasy purposes due to his knack for the deep ball, but he's not dependable in weekly formats.

Reels in sixth touchdown

Moore caught three of five targets for 20 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 40-3 win over the Jets. He also added a nine-yard carry

Analysis: Moore dropped a deep pass down the left sideline in the second quarter, leading to a three-and-out by the Seahawks. However, he made up for the whiff in the second half, snaring a three-yard pass from Russell Wilson to notch his sixth touchdown of the season -- a career high. Wilson has now targeted Moore 11 times in the red zone. He'll aim to extend his career highs in next week's matchup against Washington.

Just one reception against Giants

Moore caught one of two targets for six yards in Sunday's 17-12 loss to the Giants.

Analysis: Moore registered fewer than 10 yards for a third straight game, although he did add a touchdown last week. As long as Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf are healthy, Moore's going to be tough to depend on in fantasy. His relevance may be reserved for DFS tournaments because of his big-play ability.

Notches fifth touchdown

Moore caught a touchdown but lost six yards on three receptions in Monday's 23-17 win over the Eagles.

Analysis: In fourth-and-goal at the Eagles' two-yard line, Moore was called for a jet sweep but was immediately stuffed by Derek Barnett for a loss of five yards. His name was called later in the first half, too and he came through this time, as Russell Wilson found Moore in the end zone for his fifth receiving touchdown of the season, tying his career high in the category. Moore's on pace to set career bests in every category. However, he's not dependable as a fantasy option behind DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett.

Ready to go Monday

Moore (hip) is active for Monday's game against the Eagles.

Analysis: The 25-year-old was added to the injury report with the hip issue Friday as a limited participant and was questionable to play, but he'll be suiting up for Monday's contest. Moore should continue to operate as Seattle's No. 3 wideout behind Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf.

Nov 30, 2020 4:05 PM EST

Surfaces on injury report

Moore (hip) was a limited participant in Friday's practice, Joe Fann of NBC Sports Northwest reports.

Analysis: Moore wasn't listed on Thursday's practice estimate, indicating that he may have suffered this injury during Friday's session. That's a bit concerning, and it makes Saturday's practice status even more important for his chances to play Monday against the Eagles. Rookie Freddie Swain will bump into the No. 3 role if Moore ends up sidelined in Week 12.

Nov 27, 2020 4:33 PM EST

Reels in both targets

Moore was targeted twice and caught two passes in Thursday's 28-21 win over the Cardinals.

Analysis: Russell Wilson threw for a season-low 197 yards in this game. Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf predictably were the focal points of a narrow target tree, as the pair combined for 12 receptions, 113 receiving yards and two touchdowns. Moore was left out of the equation as a result, but he'll have his typical boom-or-bust appeal again in Week 12 against the Eagles.

Nov 24, 2020 3:18 PM EST

Reels in just two passes

Moore caught two of three targets for 16 yards and rushed once for two yards in Sunday's 23-16 loss to the Rams.

Analysis: Moore handled a season-high 61 percent snap share, but that translated to his lowest yardage and reception total since Week 5. There's a chance his opportunities increase further in Thursday's matchup against the Cardinals, as coach Pete Carroll said Monday that Tyler Lockett has a "bit of a knee sprain," according to Brady Henderson of ESPN.com. If Lockett's unable to play Thurdsay, Moore will operate as the No. 2 wide receiver behind DK Metcalf, and there should be plenty of opportunities to go around considering Lockett was targeted 20 times against the Cardinals in Week 7

Nov 16, 2020 3:05 PM EST

Hauls in deep TD pass

Moore caught four of six targets for 71 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 44-34 loss to the Bills.

Analysis: The fourth-year wide receiver enjoyed season highs in both receptions and targets. His day was highlighted in the fourth quarter when he took a vertical route to the end zone, seemingly uncovered, and waited for Russell Wilson to toss a 55-yard moonball. Moore secured his fourth touchdown of the season, doubling last year's touchdown total and sitting one shy of a career high in the category.

Looks good for Week 9

Moore (ankle/back) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Bills, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Moore was added to the Seahawks' official injury report Thursday after failing to practice due to the two listed issues, but his lack of a designation heading into the weekend suggests he may have just gotten some extra maintenance. Expect Moore to continue rotating with Freddie Swain in three-receiver sets Week 9, but neither can be counted on to see many looks with DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett typically hogging the targets.

Nov 6, 2020 2:27 PM EST

Held out Thursday

Moore (ankle/back) was a non-participant during the Seahawks' practice session Thursday, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Moore was absent from the Seahawks' injury report Wednesday, prompting curiosity regarding the time and place when he sustained the two injuries. It's certainly possible the 25-year-old wideout suffered the injuries during practice, though until more details are uncovered, his status for a Week 9 matchup against Buffalo remains uncertain. Moore has registered six catches for 72 yards and a touchdown over his past two appearances, and he has at least four targets in three consecutive games played.

Finds end zone in victory

Moore recorded three receptions on three targets for 18 yards and a touchdown in Week 8 against San Francisco. He also chipped in two rushes for 28 yards.

Analysis: Moore maintained his usual role as third receiver for the team, finishing behind both D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett in targets. He got involved in the offense early on, recording two receptions for 12 yards on the team's second offensive possession. His only other reception came late in third quarter when he caught a six-yard touchdown in the middle of the end zone. It was Moore's third score of the season. Despite his reliability in the red zone, Moore has yet to surpass four targets this season and is unlikely to see his volume spike without the absence of Lockett or Metcalf.

Quickly returns Sunday

Moore (ribs) re-entered Sunday's game against the 49ers, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Analysis: Moore missed a drive after suffering a rib injury, but he quickly returned to Sunday's divisional tilt. The 25-year-old wide receiver adds further speed to a blazing set of Seahawks receivers, and he can contribute as a rusher as well, something that may be necessary because of the team's backfield conundrum.

Nov 1, 2020 1:57 PM EST

Suffers rib injury

Moore was forced out of Sunday's game versus the 49ers with a rib injury.

Analysis: The Seahawks' backfield was torched by injuries last week, as rookie DeeJay Dallas was the only running back to enter the week fully healthy (Travis Homer only suited up in case of emergency). With Moore sidelined as well, the Seahawks have just four healthy wide receivers. The target tree will continue to favor Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf, and Freddie Swain will be counted on until Moore can return.

Nov 1, 2020 1:51 PM EST

Registers 54 yards

Moore caught all three targets for 54 yards in Sunday's 37-34 loss to the Cardinals. He also added a four-yard carry.

Analysis: It was the Tyler Lockett show for Seattle, as the star receiver caught 15 passes for 200 yards and three scores, but Moore made some key plays to keep drives alive. Each pass he caught went for a first down, including a third-down conversion in the fourth quarter that set up a Lockett touchdown just a few plays later. Moore's not a weekly play in redraft fantasy formats, but he has a rare big-play ability and remains a tournament DFS play.

Oct 26, 2020 9:06 AM EST

Blanked on SNF

Moore didn't haul in any of his three targets during Sunday's 27-26 win over the Vikings.

Analysis: Moore's boom-or-bust style was on full display Sunday night, as he dropped a 40-yard, end-zone pass from Russell Wilson late in the third quarter. The 25-year-old receiver was targeted twice more but couldn't haul one in. He's enjoyed a couple of impressive fantasy games already this season, though, so he's worth a look in DFS tournaments on a weekly basis.
