Moore signed with the Chargers' practice squad Tuesday, per the NFL's media transactions page.
Analysis: Moore started the season on the Chargers' 53-man roster and played 25 snaps with the team before being waived earlier this season. Now, the 25-year-old wide receiver will have an opportunity to try to work his way back up to the main roster.
The Chargers waived Moore on Saturday.
Analysis: Moore suited up in one game for the Chargers after winning a roster spot in training camp, and he wasn't targeted over 25 offensive snaps. Jalen Guyton, KJ Hill (hip) Tyron Johnson and Joe Reed showed more potential through the short stint and will stick with the team as depth moving forward. The 25-year-old wide receiver is a practice squad candidate if he clears waivers.
Moore (coach's decision) will be inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Chiefs, per the Chargers' official Twitter account.
Analysis: The 25-year-old receiver has now been scratched from the lineup in both Weeks 1 and 2, after making 10 appearances last year as an undrafted rookie. As Moore sits out another game, Jalen Guyton, K.J. Hill, and Joe Reed will see snaps behind Los Angeles' top wideouts Keenan Allen and Mike Williams.
Moore is present on the team's 53-man roster following Saturday's cutdown.
Analysis: This move comes as a bit of a surprise considering the Chargers typically don't roster more than five wide receivers in any given year. Moore beat out veteran Darius Jennings and previous practice-squad standout Tyron Johnson for the sixth and final spot among the wide receivers, although a rash of injuries would need to occur before Moore becomes fantasy relevant.
Moore posted two catches for 43 yards across 10 games played in 2019.
Analysis: Moore actually registered at least five offensive snaps in nine of the aforementioned 10 games although he caught a pass in just one of them. Travis Benjamin (quad) is expected to be a cap-savings causality this offseason, opening up the possibility for Moore to fight with a litany of other lesser-known options for the No. 3 receiver.
Moore caught both of his targets for 43 yards in the 24-17 loss Sunday to the Chargers.
Analysis: Moore made his first NFL catch late in the fourth quarter and promptly registered another 10-plus-yard reception later in the contest. Injuries and general ineffectiveness by the receiving core helped the undrafted rookie see a limited number of snaps, but it's unlikely Moore will see similar production moving forward.
Moore was signed to the Chargers' active roster Saturday.
Analysis: Moore doesn't figure to play a big enough role for the Chargers to warrant fantasy consideration, but it's still good to see the young receiver get a chance to show what he can do as part of Los Angeles' active roster. He has yet to play a game in 2019.
