Signs with Chicago

Moore signed with the Bears on Tuesday.

Analysis: Moore will join Chicago after previously participating in the team's voluntary minicamp as a tryout player this past week. The 2017 seventh-round pick appeared in three total games while playing with the Broncos and Packers in 2021 and is coming off his first season without recording a reception since his rookie campaign. These poor results may be somewhat of an outlier for Moore however, as the wideout hauled in 78 passes for 1,163 yards and 13 touchdowns over 46 games with the Seahawks from 2018 to 2020 and will look to regain this level of production with Bears' second-year quarterback Justin Fields.

Restored to practice squad

Moore was restored to the Packers' practice squad from the COVID-19 list Monday.

Analysis: Moore spent a week in COVID protocols, but he'll now be able to practice with the team again. He was with the active roster in Week 17 and handled return duties. Whether or not hell have a chance to do that again now that he's healthy is not yet known.

Shifts to practice squad COVID list

Moore has reverted to the Packers' practice squad and subsequently the practice squad reserve/COVID-19 list.

Analysis: Moore was elevated to the Packers' active roster for their Week 16 victory over the Vikings. It was his fourth time suiting up this season, but he ultimately did not see any action. He will now be required to clear the league's health and safety protocols before returning to practice.

Likely primary returner

Moore was elevated to the Packers' active roster Saturday.

Analysis: The Packers have been desperate to find a competent returner on special teams and Moore might just be the answer given his limited experience as both a kick and punt returner with the Seahawks. The 26-year-old briefly saw a stint with the Broncos earlier this season, but he could see a much larger role with the Packers if he's able to prove his competence on special teams.

Joins Packers' practice squad

The Packers signed Moore to their practice squad Thursday.

Analysis: Moore was cut from Denver's practice squad in early November but will now attempt to carve out a role with the Packers. He appeared in two games with the Broncos earlier in the year but failed to haul in either of his two targets.

Cut from practice squad

Moore was cut from Denver's practice squad Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

Analysis: The wide receiver was added to the team's practice squad Oct. 20 after appearing in the Broncos' Week 4 and 5 contests earlier in the season, failing to make a catch on two targets. Moore did not crack the active roster this time around and now will look for a new squad.

Lands on Broncos' practice squad

Denver signed Moore to the practice squad Wednesday.

Analysis: Moore suited up for the Broncos in Weeks 4 and 5, versus the Ravens and Steelers, respectively, but in that span he failed to secure either of his two targets. Now, the former Seahawks wideout will get a chance to develop on the practice squad.

Oct 20, 2021 12:59 PM EST

Released Tuesday

Moore was released by the Broncos on Tuesday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Analysis: The move was not an unexpected one after the Broncos signed veteran John Brown last week. Moore was active for two games with the team but failed to get a reception. The 26-year-old will likely find another suitor for his services in the coming weeks.

Oct 19, 2021 3:27 PM EST

Not playing against Las Vegas

Moore (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against Las Vegas.

Analysis: Moore had played two games for Denver after signing from the Raiders' practice squad, but he has only logged 23 offensive snaps -- so his absence here shouldn't have a big impact in most fantasy rosters. Moore's next chance to feature would be at Cleveland next Thursday.

Oct 17, 2021 12:24 PM EST

Catchless in loss

Moore failed to secure either of his two targets in Sunday's 27-19 loss to the Steelers.

Analysis: In his second game as a Bronco after being signed off the Raider's practice squad on Sept. 27, Moore played on just four of the team's 60 offensive snaps. The veteran wideout's seven percent snap percentage was down from the 31 percent of offensive snaps he played in his Week 4 debut against the Ravens. With fellow receiver Jerry Jeudy set to make his return from an ankle injury in the coming weeks, Moore will remain well off the fantasy radar going forward.

Heading to Denver

The Broncos signed Moore off the Raiders' practice squad Monday, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.

Analysis: After four seasons in Seattle to begin his career, Moore found a new home in Carolina in the offseason, but the emergence of rookie Terrace Marshall caused the Panthers to include the former in their final roster cuts. Moore quickly found employment in Las Vegas, and after waiting three weeks he's landed with a WR-needy team. Currently, Jerry Jeudy (ankle) and Adrian Killins (ankle) are on injured reserve, and KJ Hamler is expected to join them soon after tearing his ACL on Sunday. Courtland Sutton and Tim Patrick will continue to gobble up most of the targets from Teddy Bridgewater, but Moore finds himself in a place to produce as a third wide receiver.

Lands with Raiders' practice squad

Moore signed with the Raiders' practice squad Friday, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Although Moore signed a two-year deal with the Panthers during the offseason, he failed to land a spot on the team's 53-man roster and was released Wednesday. The 26-year-old appeared in 47 games across the last four seasons with the Seahawks and will provide a veteran presence on the Raiders' practice squad.

Leaving Carolina

The Panthers released Moore on Wednesday, Darin Gantt of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: A 2017 seventh-round pick, Moore spent his first four seasons with the Seahawks, after which the Panthers inked him to a deal back in March. But with Terrace Marshall's subsequent addition in the draft and impressive play throughout the preseason, Carolina is moving on from the 26-year-old. With Moore out of the picture, the team's group of wide receivers now includes Robby Anderson, DJ Moore, Marshall, Brandon Zylstra and Shi Smith (shoulder).

Makes one catch

Moore caught one of two targets for 19 yards in Friday night's 34-9 preseason win over the Steelers.

Analysis: Moore also returned three kicks for a combined 37 yards on special teams. Given the fantastic preseason production of rookie second-rounder Terrace Marshall, who scored while catching three passes for 43 yards Friday, Moore is now expected to serve as Carolina's fourth wideout this season, likely restricting his value despite coming off a career-best 35 receptions in Seattle last year.

Aug 28, 2021 7:17 AM EST

Catches two passes

Moore caught two of four targets for 26 yards in Sunday's 21-18 preseason loss to the Colts.

Analysis: Moore hauled in a couple of passes in his Panthers debut, but rookie Terrace Marshall's team-high three grabs for 88 yards evidenced why he's currently leading Moore to become the team's third wideout. Given his veteran status, however, Moore would represent a reliable fourth receiver behind DJ Moore, Robby Anderson and Marshall in that scenario.

Aug 16, 2021 7:17 AM EST

Trailing rookie in competition

Moore is behind rookie Terrace Marshall in the competition for the Panthers' No. 3 receiver job, Joseph Person of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Moore was signed this offseason coming off a strong campaign with the Seahawks, but Carolina's subsequent drafting of Marshall in the second round immediately gave him significant competition to serve behind DJ Moore and Robby Anderson. After the first couple weeks of training camp, Marshall has now been deemed the favorite for the third-wideout job, with head coach Matt Rhule admitting the team is aiming to force-feed Marshall to ensure his readiness ahead of Week 1. Although Moore can still stake his claim with a quality preseason, the veteran may ultimately be destined for the fourth place on the depth chart, hurting his stock overall.

Aug 9, 2021 6:09 AM EST

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.

Mar 18, 2021 3:04 PM EST

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.

Jan 4, 2021 3:20 AM EST

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.
