D.J. Moore – Carolina Panthers WR

D.J. Moore looked like the player of old in Week 2 at the Buccaneers. The timing with quarterback Teddy Bridgewater was much improved after looking out of sync in their season opener and this can only mean good things for the wide receiver and the Carolina Panthers moving forward.

Much was expected of the former first-round in 2020. Moore has the chance to enter the elite category if he makes further strides in the coming months and his exceptional start to life in Carolina could see him move ahead of some notable former players in the record books with another strong showing against the Chargers.

This might mean nothing to Moore at the present time, especially with how the Panthers are struggling currently. But the Maryland product can propel himself above Jonathan Stewart with nine receptions on Sunday into the all-time top ten in franchise history.

Moore has 154 receptions to his name currently after just two full seasons in a professional environment. And this isn’t the only target he can aim for if he builds on a promising performance at the Bucs that failed to have an impact on the overall outcome.

The wideout can pass Devin Funchess, who is currently No. 9, on the all-time receiving list if he secures 97 yards in Week 3. Considering Moore is only in his third season, this is already an outstanding achievement and a further indication of how important he is to the organization.
