|David Moore enjoyed a bit of a breakout season in 2018 after contributing nothing for the Seahawks in his rookie year of 2017. Moore saw more playing time due to the injuries in front of him on the depth chart, but he was at least effective when he caught passes, producing 445 yards and five touchdowns on just 26 receptions.
The biggest concern with Moore is that he was rather inefficient with the targets he saw. The numbers were great on a per-catch basis, but he actually caught fewer than 50 percent of the passes that came his way. Sure, some of that might have been him becoming acclimated with Russell Wilson, but it'd be easy to see why Wilson might look elsewhere this season if he doesn't have a particularly strong connection with Moore.
It's also worth considering that Moore was almost a complete non-factor down the stretch in 2018. After his lone 100-yard game against the Panthers in Week 11, Moore failed to catch more than two passes in any of Seattle's remaining games and did not exceed even 20 yards or score a single touchdown in any other contest. Doug Baldwin was back on the field and producing in those late season games so Moore was competing for targets with better players, but he was still on the field for 65 percent of Seattle's offensive snaps over those final six games of the regular season.
Moore won't have to compete with Baldwin which is certainly a positive and it does at least give him the possibility of seeing significant playing time, but the Seahawks obviously viewed wide receiver as a position of importance in the draft as they added D.K. Metcalf in second round, along with Gary Jennings in the fourth round. Both of those players will be competing with Moore for playing time and could end up taking over the starting role opposite Lockett depending on how things go in camp.
He's going undrafted in most leagues and should really only be considered in dynasty formats until we see how Seattle's offense looks early this season, but David Moore is a player who does have the potential to have some fantasy relevance again this season given the lack of proven pass catchers in Seattle.
| Rashaad Penny questionable with hamstring injury|

|Receiver David Moore has been given the okay to play for the first time this season. Seattle could play Sunday without two players who suffered injuries this week in practice - cornerback Tre Flowers and running back Rashaad Penny.
Each were officially listed as questionable for Sunday’s game - Flowers with an ankle injury that occurred Thursday and Penny with a hamstring injury. (Seattle Times)|
FFToday's Take: If Penny sits, Chris Carson could get more looks on Sunday at home against the Brown making him a low-end RB1 option in Week 3. C.J. Prosise would fill the backup role but be off the fantasy radar in most leagues.
