DJ Moore Catches Four Passes To End Season

Sunday, January 7, 10:21 PM

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.

Christian Watson Hoping To Move Past Hamstring Issues

Friday, May 24, 1:15 PM

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Christian Watson (hamstring) said this week that he's made significant progress toward ending his hamstring issues for good. Tests this offseason showed a muscle imbalance in his legs, which likely contributed to his problems -- he has missed 11 games in his first two seasons, including eight in 2023, due to a pulled right hamstring. Packers coaches have raved about the progress Watson has made so far this year, and the 25-year-old former second-rounder in 2022 out of North Dakota State looked explosive as a full participant in organized team activities on Tuesday. Watson had a 20% difference in muscle mass between his right and left legs. Now, it's between 8% and 10%. It's interesting news, but most fantasy managers may still be hesitant to roster a player with the injury history he has early in his career. But when healthy, Watson has the most upside of any of Green Bay's current wideouts.
