D.J. Moore – Carolina Panthers WR

D.J. Moore has been one of the most consistent wide receivers since entering the league in 2018, tallying over 1,100 yards and scoring four touchdowns in each of the last three seasons. What’s more impressive is that the former Maryland stud has accomplished this without solid quarterback play.

Baker Mayfield could be the most talented quarterback that Moore has played with so far in his career. For this reason, the wideout could put up his best numbers yet with an upgrade under center.

Moore can easily turn a five yard pass into a score at any given moment as he’s one of the most explosive athletes on the field. His ability to break tackles and maintain balance when he has the football is a part of what makes him a great player.

He has also been a very durable player so far in his career, only missing two games in four years. Moore should be Mayfield’s top target in the passing game this upcoming season and the pair were part of the same draft class in 2018.

Moore signed a big extension to remain with the Carolina Panthers until after the 2025 season. With the obvious consistency and entering his prime, both players could benefit throughout the upcoming campaign.
