Diontae Johnson Could Cash In Next Offseason

Wednesday, July 3, 6:35 PM

The Carolina Panthers made no move to extend wide receiver Diontae Johnson after trading for the former Pittsburgh Steelers wideout in March, as they prefer to see whether he emerges as the explosive, coverage-separating pass-catcher that quarterback Bryce Young and the offense lacked in 2023. If Johnson proves he's a difference-maker in his first year in Carolina and if he doesn't become a distraction when the ball doesn't come his way, he could be set to cash in next offseason in a receiver market that has exploded in recent years. The 27-year-old disappointed as Pittsburgh's top receiver last year, catching a career-low 51 passes for 717 yards and five touchdowns. Johnson will now be competing with veteran Adam Thielen for targets in what was the worst offense in the league last year. Most of Johnson's fantasy value will be tied to how much Young improves in Year 2. Consider Johnson a low-end WR3/high-WR4 target in fantasy drafts.

Falcons Land Receiver Rondale Moore From Cardinals

Thursday, March 14, 1:39 PM

The Atlanta Falcons are acquiring wide receiver Rondale Moore from the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday in exchange for quarterback Desmond Ridder, according to a source. Moore will give new quarterback Kirk Cousins yet another weapon in the passing game out of the slot. Drake London and tight end Kyle Pitts will be the top two aerial targets for Cousins in his first year in Atlanta, but Moore, 23, will provide plenty of speed out of the slot. The former second-round pick of the Cardinals in 2021 out of Purdue has scored just one touchdown in each of his three NFL seasons and had his best statistical season in his rookie year with a line of 54-435-1. From a fantasy perspective, it will be difficult for Moore to stand out in Atlanta after the Falcons also signed Darnell Mooney in free agency.
