Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Rondale Moore's recent performance in the Cardinals' Week 17 victory over the Eagles, where he caught three passes for 26 yards and had two carries for eight yards, adds to a season marked by inconsistency. Despite consistent playing time, with a 60 percent share in 14 of 16 games, Moore has struggled to deliver significant yardage in most outings, with only five games surpassing 40 yards. Since quarterback Kyler Murray's return in Week 10, Moore's contributions have been limited, accumulating just 16 catches on 24 targets, six carries, 216 total yards, and one receiving touchdown in seven contests. Even though Moore and the Cardinal offense take on the Seahawk's defense in Week 18, which has conceded the eighth-most receptions to wide receivers, there's no guarantee of a breakthrough. To that end, fantasy managers should consider sitting Moore and opting for more reliable options to close out the year.

Minnesota Vikings rookie wide receiver Jordan Addison capped off an impressive first year in the NFL with four catches on his eight targets for 57 yards and his 10th touchdown of the year in Sunday's 30-20 loss to the Detroit Lions in the regular season finale. In half-PPR scoring, the first-rounder finished as the WR20 in his first full year in the league with an impressive 70 receptions (108 targets) for 911 yards and the 10 scores. It certainly helped that All-Pro wideout Justin Jefferson missed a big chunk of games (six to be exact) in the middle of the season due to a hamstring injury, but Addison made good on his first-round draft pedigree and should form one of the best receiver duos with Jefferson for years to come. Fantasy managers can't bank on double-digit touchdowns from Addison in Year 2, but he should remain highly productive with Jefferson taking plenty of attention away from him.
