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 @LanceMoore16 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.

Fantasy Analysis:

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 @MarquesColston, Jimmy Graham @TheJimmyGraham and Darren Sproles @DarrenSproles to each get a few extra targets.
