2014 Outlook: Deep-league Only

Last updated on Jul-01-2014 by Mark Morales-Smith

Lance Moore is coming off a very disappointing 2013 campaign, after a career-best 2012. Moore was forced to deal with injuries in 2013 and even when healthy he had a hard time finding his place in a very deep Saints receiving corps. What Moore does provide is a much-needed veteran presence, although that offers nothing to fantasy owners. He will likely be the Steelers' opening day slot receiver and that's a role he must hold onto given Pittsburgh's young and hungry receivers. Moore - now 30 years old - may have a few good games; however, he is not someone to count on on a regular basis. Deeper formats should stash him on their bench in case Markus Wheaton doesn't pan out immediately.

Editor's note: Forever the bridesmaid, Moore simply exchanges one good, but not great lineup for another. In doing so, he has a good QB in Ben Roethlisberger, who is certainly not as great as Drew Brees. Moore doesn't have to compete with Jimmy Graham any longer, yet he will play a supporting role to Antonio Brown. Moore is going undrafted according to our ADP numbers. While he enjoyed numerous moments of fantasy success in New Orleans, there was very little sustained success. Now 30 years old and left to collect dust on the waiver wire, only pursue Moore if there is negative news regarding Wheaton and Moore is officially named the Steelers' No. 2 receiver. For now, he is a very deep-league bench player who might be worth a look if the matchup is just right and you have no other options.

8.10 Gridiron Experts - Moore had a career year last season, so he's probably due for a bit of a drop off. Still, I couldn't take DeSean Jackson here, with Maclin already starting for my squad. I like Moore consistency and my quarterback, Drew Brees, seems to trust him on the real field. That makes Moore a decent bet on the fake field as well. Considering how long I waited to address my receiving corps, I'm not unhappy with how my starting lineup unfolded. It's also worth mentioning that I've done dozens and dozens of mock so far and this is the first one that played out like this. I chalk it up to drafting with all these genius fantasy experts.

8.09 FFToday - There's no harm in having receivers from high-powered passing offenses on your fantasy team.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #3
July 9th, 2013
8.03 FootballDiehards - Only WR Marques Colston (58) has caught more of Drew Brees' scoring passes than Moore (36). Moore set a career high for receiving yards in 2012. He also finished ranked first on the Saints in yards per catch with a 16.0 average. With Devery Henderson no longer in the mix, Moore should play an even more prominent role (in an offense that has ranked in the top five in the league each of the past five years).
