D.J. Moore- Carolina Panthers WR

On the doorstep of his second consecutive 1,000 yard season, D.J. Moore suffered a scary injury towards the end of the game in Minnesota. He needs 76 yards to get to four-figures once again and that’d definitely achievable this week, but he has to get back in sync with his quarterback and come off the reserve/COVID-19 list in time, which is still up in the air.

Teddy Bridgewater targeted the third-year wideout nine times against the Vikings and Moore only caught four balls, mostly due to miscues and errant passes.

Start or Sit in Week 14?


Moore will continue to get the volume of targets needed to net points, especially in PPR leagues, but the challenge this week will be scoring touchdowns.

The Carolina Panthers’ red zone offense was atrocious against Minnesota and Denver ranks second in this category.

If Moore gets in the end zone on Sunday it will more likely be by way of an explosive play. That’s not exactly something you can bank on against the Broncos’ ninth-ranked pass defense. But wait until the last minute to put him in your lineup given the recent COVID-19 concerns involving the wideout.

Robby Anderson- Panthers WR

Robby Anderson had a nicer day in Minnesota. He collected four catches, 94 receiving yards, and finally caught his second touchdown of the season.

The free-agent signing is only 30 yards away from his career-high of 941 as a Jet in 2017. Reaching 1,000 yards is in reach for both Anderson and Moore and I look forward to watching the friendly competition to see which talented wideout reaches the goal first.

Start or Sit in Week 14?


There’s probably less risky matchups out there, but I trust Anderson this week over Moore.

Throughout the season, Anderson has been a lot better when the Panthers run the ball well. Last week is a good indication, but take a look at his numbers in Week’s 2, 4, 5, and 9 and compare them to Carolina’s rushing numbers.

The receiver clearly benefits when the Panthers run the ball well and that should be the case on Sunday.
