Saints WR Lance Moore is indeed out for this week
Saints interim head coach Aaron Kromer subtly hinted at it Thursday and on Friday, wide receiver Lance Moore was officially ruled out for Sunday night's game against the Chargers. A hamstring injury forced Moore to miss every practice this week. He has caught 19 passes for 287 yards and two touchdowns this season.
Kromer mentioned yesterday that "It's hard to replace Lance Moore." That's exactly what he and fantasy owners will have to do. As I wrote last night, I don't think there is a great unknown option residing on the Saints' roster. This isn't a Nicks/Barden/Hixon situation. Devery Henderson and Joseph Morgan should see more playing time, but I wouldn't start them on any of my teams. Expect Marques Colston, Jimmy Graham and Darren Sproles to each get a few extra targets.
