Four catches in Week 2 loss

Moore caught four of eight targets for 47 yards in Sunday's 25-6 loss to the Patriots.

Analysis: Moore looked more comfortable in his second game after struggling in his debut. Only slot receiver Braxton Berrios saw more targets from rookie quarterback Zach Wilson, so Moore's quickly being integrated into the Jets' admittedly underwhelming offense. Jamison Crowder (groin) will command targets when he returns, be it in Week 3 against the Broncos or later, but he's more likely to cut into Berrios' volume than Moore's.

Falls flat in debut

Moore caught one of four targets for minus-3 yards in Sunday's 19-14 loss to Carolina.

Analysis: Moore showed some rookie nerves in his NFL debut, as both of his first-half targets were in his hands but ended up incomplete. Things didn't get any better after halftime, even as the rest of the Jets' offense came alive around him. The rookie second-round pick apparently had a sensational camp but was unable to replicate that success when it counts. Moore should improve as he gets more comfortable, and he could continue to see plenty of playing time if Jamison Crowder (illness) or Keelan Cole (knee) aren't ready to return in Week 2 against the Patriots.

Injuries clear path to start opener

Moore is expected to play a prominent role in Sunday's game against the Panthers, as fellow wide receiver Jamison Crowder won't come off the reserve/COVID-19 list in time to suit up, Rich Cimini of reports.

Analysis: Moore played predominantly in the slot in college, and he's set to work as New York's top option there in his NFL debut with Crowder sitting out. The rookie second-round pick out of Ole Miss is capable of shifting to the outside, where he could also see more action than anticipated if Keelan Cole (knee) -- who is a game-time decision -- joins Crowder on the sidelines.

Listed as starter on Week 1 chart

Moore holds one of the three starting spots on the Jets' Week 1 depth chart with Jamison Croser still on the COVID/Reserves list, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Analysis: Moore's snap count in the opener could be directly tied to Crowder's availability. Crowder still has a chance to suit up for the Jets on Sunday, so keep an eye on his status as the week progresses. Should Crowder sit out, Moore could be a sneaky play in some fantasy formats, though his absence from preseason play didn't help his cause. Corey Davis and Keelan Cole are the other two listed starters for the opener.
