DJ Moore A Candidate For An Extension

Chicago Bears wide receiver DJ Moore's current contract runs through the 2025 season, so nothing is urgent at this time, but he's currently 17th among wideouts in terms of average salary and is coming off a career year in his first year in Chicago in which he caught 96 passes on 136 targets for a career-high 1,364 receiving yards and eight touchdowns in 17 starts. Moore has become one of the faces of the franchise, and general manager Ryan Poles might want to reward him with a new deal sooner than later. Fellow receiver Keenan Allen will be a free agent after the 2024 season and is likely to enter the year on an expiring contract, as the Bears want to see what he has left at 32 before considering keeping him around beyond one year. Moore certainly has more competition for targets with Allen around now, but he's a pretty safe WR2 target this fall.

DJ Moore Catches Four Passes To End Season

Chicago Bears wide receiver DJ Moore wrapped up the strongest season of his career in a mild manner in Week 18, catching four of six targets for 64 yards in the team's 17-9 loss to the Packers. The star receiver finished with a career-best in receiving yards (1300) and touchdowns (eight) while going over 100 yards in a game five times this season. The former Panther finished the season as the WR8 in PPR formats, averaging over 19 points per game when Justin Fields plays the whole game. In his first year with the team, Moore added exactly what this Bears' offense needed, and his skillset combined with Fields' ability to throw the deep ball has been a perfect match. He's talked about how much he loves playing with Fields, but it's uncertain who will be the quarterback for the Bears in 2024. Moore will look to build on a career year in 2023 next year with Chicago.

DJ Moore Good To Go For Week 18

Chicago Bears wide receiver DJ Moore suffered an ankle injury in Week 16 against the Cardinals but returned to the game. In Week 17, the star receiver had an injury designation before full participation in practice on the Friday before the game, and he went on to catch nine of 13 targets for 159 yards and a touchdown. The former Panther finished with over 30 PPR points for the second time this year and the first since his Week 5 outburst on Thursday Night Football. With Justin Fields healthy, Moore has put up at least 20 PPR points in six of the last eight games, with the only games less than that coming against the best defense in the NFL and a game he was injured in. Leading up to Week 18, his status was in question after sitting out the first two practices, but full participation on Friday means he should be good to go Sunday. The Bears take on the Packers in Week 18, who allow the 19th-most points per game to receivers this season. He ranks as a low-end WR1 ahead of the final game of the season.

DJ Moore Limited Again

Chicago Bears wide receiver DJ Moore (ankle) was limited in practice for the second day in a row due to an ankle injury. The 26-year-old was initially hurt in Week 16 but was able to play in last Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons. He looked just fine in that contest, catching nine of 13 targets for 159 yards and a touchdown. Moore already has career highs in receiving yards (1,300) and touchdowns (8) and needs two more catches in Week 18 to set a new personal best in that category, too. Given Moore's strong showing in Week 17, the Bears are likely just exercising caution before their season finale against the Green Bay Packers.

DJ Moore Logs Limited Practice To Begin Week 18

Chicago Bears wide receiver DJ Moore (ankle) is listed as a limited participant in Wednesday's practice due to an ankle injury. The 2018 first-round pick is enjoying the best season of his career, compiling 92 receptions for 1,300 yards and eight touchdowns through 16 games. While there's no indication he'll miss the Week 18 game against the Green Bay Packers, the Bears could play it safe since they are already eliminated from playoff contention. Ultimately, fantasy managers and DFS gamers should monitor his practice status for the rest of the week. If he's active, he's a must-start fantasy option and will have plenty of upside in DFS tournaments this weekend.

DJ Moore Shines In Snowy Week 17 Win

Chicago Bears wide receiver DJ Moore delivered a standout performance in the team's Week 17 win, securing nine receptions on 13 targets for an impressive 159 yards and a touchdown. The star receiver thrived even in snowy conditions, accumulating 30 PPR points, marking his second-best output of the season. When starting quarterback Justin Fields is healthy, the former Panther has consistently scored at least 20 PPR points, achieving this in six of the last eight games with the exceptions being against the Browns and in a game where Moore suffered an injury. Despite occasional challenges in the Bears' passing attack, Moore ranks as the WR10 in PPR formats, justifying his draft status earlier in the year. As the Bears gear up to face the Packers in Week 18, who allow the 16th-most points per game to receivers this season, Moore stands as a compelling fantasy option.

DJ Moore Good To Go For Week 17

Chicago Bears wide receiver DJ Moore suffered an ankle injury in the team's Week 16 win over the Cardinals but returned to the game. The former Panther was not on the injury report Wednesday, meaning he will head into Week 17 without an injury designation. Moore was held to his worst fantasy output since Week 1, catching just three of six targets for a season-low 18 yards. Prior to a rough two-game stretch, the star receiver had at least 20 PPR points in five straight games with Justin Fields healthy. The last two games have been lackluster, but one was a matchup against the best defense in football, and the other he dealt with an ankle injury. The Bears take on the Falcons in Week 17, who allow the third-fewest points per game to receivers this season. Moore ranks as a low-end WR2 in a tough matchup versus Atlanta.

DJ Moore Not Listed On Wednesday's Injury Report

Chicago Bears wide receiver DJ Moore suffered an ankle injury in the Week 16 win over the Arizona Cardinals. He briefly exited the game before returning, but he was only able to catch three passes for 18 yards. However, the 26-year-old was not listed on Wednesday's initial injury report, which means he should be good to go for the Week 17 showdown with the Atlanta Falcons. Although the Falcons have surrendered the second-fewest fantasy points per game to wide receivers, Moore is a must-start as long as Justin Fields is healthy and active. In their first 11 games together, Moore has caught 63 passes for 930 yards and eight touchdowns.

DJ Moore Hurts Ankle In Week 16 Win

Chicago Bears wide receiver DJ Moore left the team's Week 16, 27-16 win over the Cardinals with an ankle injury but managed to return and finish the game. Despite the setback, the star receiver caught three of six targets for just 18 yards, marking a new season-low. The Bears, leading throughout the game, heavily favored the run, and Moore's ankle injury significantly contributed to his lackluster day. The former Panther finished with just 4.8 PPR points, his lowest since Week 1 and only the third time this year he's had fewer than 10 points with Fields playing. In Week 17, the Bears face the Falcons, who allow the fourth-fewest points per game to wide receivers. Moore's status will be worth monitoring, but if he suits up, he'll aim to bounce back from this challenging outing.

DJ Moore Looks To Rebound In Week 16

Chicago Bears wide receiver DJ Moore has been dominant this year when Justin Fields plays, putting up 20 or more PPR points in five of the last six full games they played together. The star receiver had his worst game since Week 1, catching four of eight targets for 52 yards in the team's loss at Cleveland. Most teams tend to struggle on the road at Cleveland, and the poor weather didn't help the Bears' offense get on track. He'll look to rebound from a down week and get back to his dominant ways in Week 16. The Bears take on the Cardinals, who allow the 13th-most points per game to wide receivers this season. Arizona ranks second-last in defensive passing DVOA, and Moore could be in store for a big day. He ranks as a low-end WR1 for Week 16 and will look to bounce back from a modest performance a week ago.

DJ Moore Catches Four Passes In Loss Against Browns

Chicago Bears wide receiver DJ Moore's impressive streak of 20-point PPR games with Justin Fields at the helm ended at five, as he managed four receptions on eight targets for 52 yards in the team's 20-17 loss. Despite the defeat, the star receiver maintained his status as the team leader in both receiving yards and targets. The challenging weather conditions, coupled with the formidable Browns defense, made it a tough day for the Bears. Remarkably, this marked only the fourth time all year that the former Panther was held to under 10 PPR points in a game and the first time since Week 9. Moore has proven to be a reliable asset, particularly when Fields is healthy, serving as the go-to target in the Bears' passing attack. Looking ahead to Week 16, the Bears face the Cardinals, who allow the 13th-most points per game to receivers this season. Moore aims to rebound, hoping for improved weather conditions against a potentially more vulnerable Cardinals defense.

DJ Moore Active Against Cleveland

Chicago Bears wide receiver DJ Moore (ankle) is active for the Week 15 game against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, as expected. Safety Jaquan Brisker (groin) is also active for the Bears' defense. Moore tweaked his ankle in last week's win over the Detroit Lions but stayed in the game and was able to get some practice sessions in this past week as well. The 26-year-old accounted for two touchdowns in the upset win over Detroit and needs to be locked into all starting fantasy lineups now that he's officially active. The Browns defense isn't exactly a favorable matchup for wideouts, but they are banged up on the back end and are more vulnerable than they were earlier in the season. Moore has been a WR1 in fantasy with quarterback Justin Fields on the field.

Dec 17, 2023 11:44 AM EST


DJ Moore Expected To Play In Week 15

Chicago Bears wide receiver DJ Moore (ankle) is expected to suit up for the Week 15 matchup against the Cleveland Browns. Moore is listed as questionable for this contest, but was able to get a full practice session in to end the week. Fantasy managers are hopeful that Moore suits up considering how well he has been playing. Moore has caught five passes or more in four straight games. He'll be a must-start in all fantasy formats, assuming he suits up. Fantasy managers will have to check back closer to game time for another update on his status.

Dec 16, 2023 9:57 PM EST


DJ Moore Questionable To Face Browns

Chicago Bears wide receiver DJ Moore (ankle) put in a full practice on Friday but is still considered questionable to play in Week 15 against the Cleveland Browns. Meanwhile, fellow wideout Equanimeous St. Brown (pectoral) didn't practice all week and has been ruled out for Chicago. Moore missed practice on Wednesday, was limited on Thursday and put in a full practice on Friday, so all signs point to him being active this Sunday against a banged-up Browns secondary. Fantasy managers will want to check back on Moore on Sunday morning to make sure he's active, but if he is, he should be locked into all starting lineups. The 26-year-old has had a high ceiling and floor with quarterback Justin Fields healthy. Since Fields returned in Week 11, Moore has 24 catches on 32 targets for 278 yards and two touchdowns in three games.

Dec 15, 2023 3:00 PM EST


DJ Moore Returns To Limited Practice

After sitting out on Wednesday, Chicago Bears wide receiver DJ Moore (ankle) was listed as a limited participant in Thursday's practice. Moore could still receive a questionable tag going into this weekend's game against the Cleveland Browns, but a return to practice Thursday is a good sign that he should be available to play. The 26-year-old has excelled since quarterback Justin Fields returned from a thumb injury in Week 11, catching 24 passes for 278 yards and two touchdowns while adding 20 rushing yards and a touchdown on three carries in the last three games. As long as Moore is active, he should be considered to be on the WR1/2 borderline for fantasy managers heading into a Week 15 matchup with a banged-up Browns secondary.

Dec 14, 2023 3:21 PM EST


DJ Moore Not Practicing On Wednesday

Chicago Bears wide receiver DJ Moore (ankle) is not participating in practice on Wednesday due to an ankle injury. Moore has been fantastic since quarterback Justin Fields returned from a dislocated thumb in Week 11, catching 24 of his 32 targets for 278 yards and two touchdowns in three games. It's too early to know whether Moore's early-week practice status puts him at risk of missing the Week 15 contest against the Cleveland Browns, so fantasy managers should monitor his updates moving forward. Although Cleveland presents a tough matchup for wide receivers, Moore has established himself as a must-start fantasy option.

Dec 13, 2023 2:32 PM EST


DJ Moore Shines In Week 14 Win

Chicago Bears wide receiver DJ Moore continues to dominate whenever Justin Fields starts, marking the fifth straight game with 20 PPR points or more when Fields plays the entire game. In Week 14, the star receiver recorded six catches on ten targets for 68 yards and a touchdown, while also rushing three times for 20 yards and another touchdown in the team's 28-13 win over the Lions. This was the third game in the last four where Moore scored a touchdown, and only the second time he scored more than once. The former Panther is a must-start with Fields in the game, having received at least nine targets in five consecutive games with his starting quarterback. The Bears face the Browns in Week 15, who allow the second-fewest points per game to receivers this season. Although the matchup is challenging, Moore still deserves a spot in most lineups as the top weapon in the Bears' offense.

Dec 10, 2023 9:18 PM EST


DJ Moore Looks For Another Good Outing

Chicago Bears wide receiver DJ Moore has been dominant this year with Justin Fields, posting at least 22 PPR points in each of the last four full games with his starting quarterback. The star receiver had 11 catches for 114 yards in Week 13, marking the first time he scored at least 20 points without a touchdown. The former Panther has seen at least nine targets in the last four full games with Fields under center, demonstrating that he is the clear go-to option in the team's passing attack. In Week 14, the Bears face the Lions, who allow the 11th-most points per game to receivers this season. In their Week 11 meeting, Moore put up seven catches for 96 yards and a touchdown despite the Bears protecting a lead for most of the game. Moore ranks as a high-end WR2 for Week 14.

DJ Moore Totals 114 Yards In Week 12 Win

Chicago Bears wide receiver DJ Moore continues to shine alongside quarterback Justin Fields, showcasing his ability in their Week 12 12-10 victory over the Vikings. Moore's impressive performance included 11 receptions on 13 targets, amassing 114 yards. This marked his fourth game of the season surpassing 100 receiving yards and his first with double-digit receptions. The former Panther has consistently excelled with Fields, recording a minimum of 20 PPR points in four of their seven games together, with no fewer than 13 points since Week 1. Looking ahead, the Bears have a bye in Week 13 but are set to face the Lions in Week 14, a team that has allowed the seventh-most points per game to receivers this season. Notably, Moore had a notable 96-yard game against the Lions in their Week 11 clash. Fantasy managers can confidently view Moore as a must-start option as long as Fields remains the starting quarterback.

DJ Moore Remains Must Start In Week 12

Chicago Bears wide receiver DJ Moore has displayed remarkable dominance alongside starting quarterback Justin Fields, consistently delivering double-digit PPR outputs in five of their six games together. His standout performance includes a staggering 49-point outburst in Week 5 against Washington. In Week 11, upon Fields' return, the star receiver continued his excellence, finishing the game with seven receptions on nine targets for 96 yards and a touchdown. Despite the Bears playing with a lead for most of Week 11, Moore remained productive, showcasing his ability even as the team emphasized their rushing attack. As Week 12 approaches, Moore faces a promising matchup against the Vikings, a team that has conceded the ninth-most points per game to wide receivers this season. Moore is a must-start option for managers whenever Fields is active.
