2014 Outlook: Deep-league OnlyLast updated on Jul-01-2014 by Mark Morales-Smith
Lance Moore is coming off a very disappointing 2013 campaign, after a career-best 2012. Moore was forced to deal with injuries in 2013 and even when healthy he had a hard time finding his place in a very deep Saints receiving corps. What Moore does provide is a much-needed veteran presence, although that offers nothing to fantasy owners. He will likely be the Steelers' opening day slot receiver and that's a role he must hold onto given Pittsburgh's young and hungry receivers. Moore - now 30 years old - may have a few good games; however, he is not someone to count on on a regular basis. Deeper formats should stash him on their bench in case Markus Wheaton doesn't pan out immediately.
Editor's note: Forever the bridesmaid, Moore simply exchanges one good, but not great lineup for another. In doing so, he has a good QB in Ben Roethlisberger, who is certainly not as great as Drew Brees. Moore doesn't have to compete with Jimmy Graham any longer, yet he will play a supporting role to Antonio Brown. Moore is going undrafted according to our ADP numbers. While he enjoyed numerous moments of fantasy success in New Orleans, there was very little sustained success. Now 30 years old and left to collect dust on the waiver wire, only pursue Moore if there is negative news regarding Wheaton and Moore is officially named the Steelers' No. 2 receiver. For now, he is a very deep-league bench player who might be worth a look if the matchup is just right and you have no other options.
