It has been three long years since Moore’s breakout season in 2008 when he came out of nowhere to catch 79 passes for 928 yards and 10 touchdowns. He followed that up with an injury-plagued 2009 season and a pair of mildly productive seasons in 2010 and 2011, averaging 59 receptions for 695 yards and eight touchdowns in those years. In 2012, the 5’9”, 190 pound Toledo product will get a chance to replicate his 2008 success due to the departure of Robert Meachem and the likelihood the Saints will once again feature a pass happy offense. Moore will battle Devery Henderson for a starting spot opposite Marques Colston but the reality is that New Orleans is likely to continue spreading the ball around to many receivers. That limits Moore’s upside even if he opens the season as a starter. In addition, it is hard to imagine Moore continue to score a touchdown every 7.5 receptions as he has over the past four seasons. Moore should be drafted as a solid WR4 who will likely have a number of double-digit scoring weeks as well as a few duds in 2012.
Rookie WR Martavius Bryant could make debut-- Wed Sep 10 4:30 pm --
Dri Archer and Lance Moore ruled out
Running back Dri Archer has been ruled out this week with an ankle/foot injury suffered against the Browns, while Lance Moore (groin) will miss his second straight game. Rookie receiver Martavis Bryant (shoulder) returned to practice this week after missing the season opener against the Cleveland Browns and is listed as probable for the game.
FF Today's Take:The injuries to Dri Archer and Lance Moore in the passing game should open the door for Martavius Bryant to make his NFL debut. In deep leagues and dynasty formats, Bryant offers some long term upside. Archer's injury will likely result in Le'Veon Bell seeing all of the snaps on passing downs.
