Skyy Moore Listed As Questionable After First Week Of Super Bowl Prep

The Kansas City Chiefs have listed wide receiver Skyy Moore (knee) as questionable for Super Bowl LVIII on Sunday, Feb. 11, against the San Francisco 49ers after the first week of practice. Moore was limited in practice all week and is trending towards a return, but the Chiefs will have to decide whether to officially activate him from Injured Reserve by next Wednesday. The 23-year-old second-year wideout has not played for the team since Week 15, so even if he's activated and available to face San Francisco, it's unlikely that Moore will be very involved on offense, especially with Kadarius Toney looking likely to suit up after also being out since Week 15. In 14 regular-season games, Moore had only 21 catches for 244 yards and one touchdown on 38 targets.

Skyy Moore Won't Come Off Injured Reserve

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Skyy Moore (knee) will not come off the Injured Reserve to play in Sunday's Divisional Round game versus the Buffalo Bills. Moore returned to practice this week but isn't ready to contribute on offense. The 23-year-old second-year player was a disappointment once again before even getting injured, catching 21 of his 38 targets for 244 yards and the first touchdown of his career in 14 regular season games before getting injured in Week 15. Moore has not played since but could be available as receiver depth for KC if they beat the Bills in Buffalo and advance to another AFC Championship next weekend. Rookie Rashee Rice has become the Chiefs' only reliable pass-catcher for fantasy purposes, outside of tight end Travis Kelce. Justin Watson and Marquez Valdes-Scantling are the starters alongside Rice.

Chiefs Designate Skyy Moore To Return From Injured Reserve

The Kansas City Chiefs designated wide receiver Skyy Moore (knee) to return from Injured Reserve on Wednesday. It means that Moore can resume practicing with the team, but he won't be active for Sunday's Divisional Round playoff game against the Buffalo Bills unless the Chiefs officially activate him from Injured Reserve by Saturday's deadline. The 23-year-old will have to prove he's healthy enough in practice this week to be activated for Sunday's game, but even if Moore is cleared to play this weekend, it's unlikely that he'll have a big role after being out since Week 15. The second-year wideout wasn't really a big part of KC's offense when he was healthy in 2023, either, catching only 21 of 38 targets for 244 yards and one touchdown in 14 games. Rookie Rashee Rice is the only realistic DFS receiver play for the Divisional Round from the Chiefs.

Chiefs Put Skyy Moore On Injured Reserve

The Kansas City Chiefs placed wide receiver Skyy Moore (knee) on Injured Reserve on Monday, meaning he'll miss the next three games and the rest of the 2023 regular season. Moore was injured in the team's Week 15 loss to the New England Patriots on Sunday due to knee swelling and will now take some time off and hope to return to help the Chiefs in the playoffs. The 23-year-old was expected to have a much larger role in Kansas City's offense going into his second NFL season, but that really didn't end up happening. In 14 games (eight starts) for the Chiefs, Moore caught 21 of his 38 targets for 244 yards and one touchdown. For the next three games at least, Moore's absence will mean more snaps for Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Kadarius Toney and Richie James behind rookie Rashee Rice and Justin Watson.

Avoid Skyy Moore On SNF

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Skyy Moore (knee) practiced fully all week and has been removed from Week 13's injury report. Moore has emerged with a knee injury, but it didn't cost him any game action during Week 12's 31-17 win over the division-rival Las Vegas Raiders. The 23-year-old was not a big part of the comeback victory, collecting each of his three targets for 34 yards. A consolation prize for Moore is that last Sunday marked his highest output in catches and yards since Week 4, which is a more an indictment of the 2022 second-round pick's Year 2 struggles than anything else. Moore hasn't participated on 50% of his possible routes in any game since that Week 4 contest, remaining miles from fantasy relevance in Week 13 against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday Night Football as a WR5/6.

Skyy Moore Practices Fully On Wednesday

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Skyy Moore (knee) was listed as a full participant in practice on Wednesday ahead of his team's Week 13 matchup against the Green Bay Packers. Moore didn't appear to suffer any injuries in a Week 12 win over the Las Vegas Raiders, so his being listed as a full participant on the injury report doesn't appear to be a major issue. That being said, it will be worth monitoring his participation in practice sessions on Thursday and Friday. Stay tuned.

Skyy Moore Sees A Chance To Step Up In Week 12

Though we're about three quarters of the way through the 2023 season, Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Skyy Moore has a chance to kick-start his campaign in Week 12's road date with the division-rival Las Vegas Raiders. It would be better late than never for Moore, who has recorded a scant 17 receptions on 32 targets with 205 receiving yards and one touchdown in 10 games played this season. Though they haven't played very much anyway, Kadarius Toney (ankle/hip) and Mecole Hardman Jr. (thumb) will be inactive on Sunday. It gives Moore a chance to be a more frequent member of three-receiver sets for head coach Andy Reid in this one, after Marquez Valdes-Scantling logged a season-low 46.2% of K.C.'s offensive snaps and dropped a would-be game-winning score in Week 11. Even so, Moore is a dart-throw WR5/6 pick in an offense that tends to spread the ball around and a game where the Chiefs could be playing from ahead.

Skyy Moore Off The Week 11 Radar

The Kansas City Chiefs finally responded to wide receiver Skyy Moore's lack of productivity in the Week 9 win over the Miami Dolphins in Frankfurt. They handed Moore his lowest snap share of the year (21.1%) after regularly employing him for at least 50% in each of the preceding eight outings. The 23-year-old has one 2023 highlight, which was a 3/70/1 receiving line on four targets in Week 2 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Fantasy managers may be searching waiver wires for a Chiefs wideout in a plum spot against the Philadelphia Eagles, who are getting pummeled for the most average fantasy points to opposing WRs (47.53). They would be better suited taking a gamble on deep threats Marquez Valdes-Scantling or Justin Watson getting the behind Philly's aging secondary in this cushy draw, the latter of whom registered a season-high 66.7% of K.C.'s offensive snaps in his last outing.

Skyy Moore Should Be Avoided Against Miami

Year 2 has been a difficult one for Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Skyy Moore, who has recorded a measly 14 receptions, 168 yards, and 6.2 yards per target covering eight games. Moore has joined teammate Kadarius Toney as an abject late-round fantasy failure from this past summer's drafts, logging one real usable score back in Week 2 with 16.0 full-PPR points. But at least Moore's 59.3% snap share ranks second among K.C.'s wideouts, which still isn't exactly saying much with Marquez Valdes-Scantling leading the crew at a 62.4% rate. Greater than four targets haven't gone Moore's way since Week 3, leaving production few and far between entering Week 9 against a Miami Dolphins defense sacrificing the 10th-most fantasy points per game (37.83) to WRs. The 23-year-old former second-round pick is an unreliable WR5/6 without much to be excited about leading into Sunday.

Skyy Moore Belongs On Week 8 Benches

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Skyy Moore remains stuck in obscurity entering Week 8's matchup with the division-rival Denver Broncos. Moore's 3/70/1 Week 2 receiving line following the opener has served as a flash in the pan to this juncture, catching 10 balls (17 targets) for 90 scoreless yards in the subsequent five games. Playing time is about the only aspect saving the 23-year-old from total fantasy irrelevance, with a snap share that has regularly settled into the 60% range. As Rashee Rice continues to climb the depth-chart ladder, Moore's slot work figures to suffer as a consequence. Moore is not on the fantasy radar as a WR5 on Sunday, and managers should have probably cut bait on the disappointing 2022 second-round pick several weeks ago.

Skyy Moore Hardly Relevant In Week 7

In addition to dry box-score figures, Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Skyy Moore has also made an inauspicious sweep in most advanced stats for those seeking some silver linings. On the surface, Moore is fantasy's WR78 in average full-PPR points (5.6) across six outings. The 23-year-old's abysmal 9.5% target share and 1.05 yards per route run leave much to be desired on top of failing to win routes consistently. Moore at least has a chance to change his highly unproductive ways in a Week 7 draw versus a Los Angeles Chargers that's had no answers in defending wideouts this season. The 2022 second-rounder is essentially sharing slot snaps with emerging rookie Rashee Rice, and the Bolts defense has permitted the eighth-most slot fantasy points per game (13.4), per Razzball. Even with Justin Watson (elbow) out Sunday, Moore is not to be relied on as anything more than an uninspiring WR5/6.

Skyy Moore Not A Recommended Week 6 Play

Not much went right for Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Skyy Moore in his rookie campaign, and Year 2 hasn't treated him kindly either. Moore has two catchless games already under his belt, with a 3/70/1 receiving line in Week 2 raising his season from otherwise lifeless territories. Working in the 23-year-old's favor, at least, is a starting role in a potent Chiefs offense as their primary slot receiver, but his 61% snap rate this year leaves much to be desired. The Denver Broncos secondary, who Moore does battle with in Week 6, has been far more susceptible to wideouts lined up on the outside; they've held those running from the slot to the fifth-fewest fantasy points per game (7.5). The 2022 second-rounder is best suited on most fantasy benches as a WR4/5 until he capitalizes on his modest playing time.

Skyy Moore A Dull Option Against Jets

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Skyy Moore looks like the most startable fantasy choice of the team's mishmash wideout crew in Week 4 against the New York Jets, but that isn't saying very much. The 22-year-old rebounded from a catchless season opener to haul in seven of his 13 targets for 112 yards and touchdown in his last two outings. Moore spends a solid chunk of time in the slot, so he may face off less regularly with Gang Green's feared duo of Sauce Gardner and D.J. Reed than his perimeter teammates. Though, it's worth noting both of whom have struggled a bit out of 2023's gates. With Kadarius Toney (toe) off the injury report, Moore is only on the WR3/4 edge in deep leagues until his role becomes more pronounced.

Skyy Moore Productive Again, Becoming Chiefs WR To Roster

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Skyy Moore caught 4-of-6 targets for 42 yards in Week 3's 41-10 flattening of the Chicago Bears. The 22-year-old had a nice 21-yard play in Bears territory during the first quarter to facilitate an eventual scoring drive. Moore maintained healthy involvement in K.C.'s passing game after a career day in Week 2, but there was unlikely to be much prolific yardage potential during a game Patrick Mahomes got to take the fourth quarter off. Moore is probably the preferred Chiefs WR to roster in fantasy over Kadarius Toney at this juncture, though that's not saying very much due to the sheer lack of reliability outside of Travis Kelce. Consider Moore a low-end WR3/FLEX option for Week 4's date in the Meadowlands with the New York Jets.

Skyy Moore Remains A WR4 After Career Day

Wide receiver Skyy Moore emerged to lead the Kansas City Chiefs in receiving with a career-best 70 yards and his first career touchdown in Week 2's low-scoring defensive battle with the Jacksonville Jaguars. The 22-year-old will try to build on that big day in Week 3 versus the Chicago Bears, who haven't seen much go right for them defensively this year besides wipe out slot receivers for 2.4 fantasy points per game this year, per Razzball. Moore takes a significant portion of his snaps from the slot, but Chicago will be without star defensive back Eddie Jackson (foot), potentially enhancing Moore's outlook slightly. Even if Kadarius Toney (toe) happens to not suit up on Sunday, Moore is still only a WR4 with just seven targets on 60 routes run this season.

Skyy Moore Pops Up For Career-High 70 Yards, Scores In Win

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Skyy Moore hauled in 3-of-4 targets for a career-high 70 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 17-9 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. The 22-year-old came down with a nine-yard score to give K.C. the lead near the first half's close. Moore then helped put the game away on a 54-yard catch-and-run in part by some nifty footwork by quarterback Patrick Mahomes to get it to him and sink whatever hopes remained of a potential Jacksonville rally. It was certainly a step in the right direction for Moore, who put up a goose egg in the season opener. With Kadarius Toney having trouble getting out of his own way, Moore will have another chance to earn Mahomes' trust in an advantageous Week 3 draw versus the Chicago Bears.

Skyy Moore - Week 2 Outlook for Fantasy Football

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Skyy Moore was as much of a non factor fantasy-wise as teammate Kadarius Toney in a Week 1 defeat to the Detroit Lions. The 22-year-old failed to bring in any of his three targets, but at least logged the team lead in snaps (71%) among their receivers. Moore hardly belongs in any fantasy starter conversations in Week 2 against the Jacksonville Jaguars as no better than the team's No. 3 target with Travis Kelce (knee) poised to return. The 2022 first-rounder is justifiable as an end-of-bench stash at this time, but not a worthy WR3 even in Week 2's date with a Jags defense that let in 18 touchdowns to WRs a season ago.

Skyy Moore Held Catchless In Thursday’s Defeat

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Skyy Moore failed to reel in any of his three targets, but logged a four-yard rush in Thursday's 21-20 loss to the Detroit Lions. So much for Moore potentially stepping up for an expanded role in the absence of Travis Kelce (knee). The 22-year-old at least led the receiving corps in snaps. Moore might be a popular drop candidate ahead of Week 2, but fantasy managers might want to give him another chance or two before considering doing so. Though, the 2022 second-round pick will not be a recommended WR4 option next Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Skyy Moore May See Uptick In Opportunity In Opener

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Skyy Moore seeks to put a nondescript rookie season in the rearview mirror in Week 1. The 22-year-old managed 22 receptions for 250 yards and failed to hit paydirt in the regular season of Year 1. Moore takes the field in a decent setup with Kadarius Toney unlikely to play a full allotment of snaps following late-July knee surgery. The Detroit Lions defense was beat up for the second-most receiving yards to WRs (3238) and the most fantasy points per game to slot receivers (15.9) a year ago. Fantasy managers should ideally be taking a wait-and-see approach before starting Moore on Thursday, but he may end up leading the receiving corps in snaps in this one. View the 2022 second-round pick as a low-end WR3/4 in a favorable matchup. Moore would arguably be the biggest beneficiary of additional opportunity if Travis Kelce (knee) is limited or ruled out entirely.

Skyy Moore Could Be Heavily Targeted This Year

The two best candidates to be Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes' No. 2 target behind tight end Travis Kelce this year are wide receivers Skyy Moore and Marquez Valdes-Scantling, in the opinion of The Athletic's Nate Taylor. Moore is expected to replace JuJu Smith-Schuster as the team's slot receiver, with Valdes-Scantling being the team's best deep-ball threat. If Moore can stay healthy, Taylor writes that an argument can be made that Mahomes will target him the most among the team's receivers. Kadarius Toney (knee) has had trouble staying on the field so far in his career and could be limited in the early going, so don't be surprised if the 22-year-old Moore gets off to a strong start in 2023.
