D.J. Moore- Carolina Panthers WR

It’s crazy how much the Carolina Panthers missed having D.J. Moore on the field. Curtis Samuel has had a nice year, but it seems like his ceiling is as a third pass-catching option on a good team.

Coming back from the COVID-19/reserve list and an ankle injury, Moore is 76 yards away from his second straight 1,000-yard season. In a stellar performance in Green Bay last season, the third-year receiver caught nine passes for 120 yards.

Start or Sit in Week 15?


I’m leaning towards Moore to get the larger volume of targets in this game.

Moore is averaging 18.5 yards-per-catch among pass catchers with at least 35 receptions which is helpful when the offense leans towards short pass attempts. I think his offensive coordinator and quarterback will help him surpass his 1,000-yard goal and in PPR leagues especially, that should give him a 15+ point night.

Robby Anderson – Carolina Panthers WR

Robby Anderson already has a career-high in receiving yards and only needs four more to have 1,000 on the season. In Moore’s absence, the wideout rewarded fantasy owners with 17.7 points against Denver.

Showing that there is strength in numbers, having two 1,000-yard receivers is a huge accomplishment and building block for the offense next season. Carolina’s coaching staff and its front office need to figure out how to fill the holes at tight end, offensive line, and potentially quarterback in order for this team to reach the next level.

Start or Sit in Week 15?


I have Anderson on my own fantasy team’s bench for this game for two reasons.

First, because there are better matchups, and second because I don’t see both Panthers’ receivers eating in this game. It’s been an up and down season for stud Packers cornerback Jaire Alexander but he’s going to be covering either Anderson or Moore and Teddy Bridgewater will almost certainly avoid those matchups.

You’re probably hoping for garbage-time catches if you start Anderson, which is likely, but hard to bank on.
