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.

Michael Pittman Jr. "Should Be Fine" After Leaving Practice Early

Wednesday, May 22, 3:29 PM

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. (knee) left Wednesday's offseason practice early after taking a fall during team period. The 26-year-old limped off the field with trainers, but head coach Shane Steichen said he "should be fine." Pittman reportedly just bumped his knee, but organizations are going to be extra careful with their stud players at this point in the offseason. The 2020 second-round pick had an excellent 2023 campaign while playing mostly with quarterback Gardner Minshew. He caught 109 passes for 1,152 yards and four touchdowns. It's tough to know what to expect out of him with a healthy Anthony Richardson and Jonathan Taylor to begin the 2024 season, and the team drafted Texas wideout Adonai Mitchell in the second round of last month's draft. Either way, he remains the No. 1 option in the passing game for the Colts, and another 1,000-yard season should be the expectation.
