Skyy Moore fantasy outlook, projection 2022

Moore was drafted in the second round of the 2022 NFL Draft out of Western Michigan. He was one of the best wide receivers in the MAC and had one of the better showings at the NFL scouting combine. Last season, the 5-10, 195-pound wide receiver exploded onto the scene with 95 receptions for 1,292 yards and 10 touchdowns. In the previous season, which was shortened due to the pandemic, Moore only had 25 receptions for 388 yards and three touchdowns.

Moore isn't a prototypical vertical deep threat, as he does most of the damage in the intermediate part of the field. However, Moore ran a 4.41 40-yard dash at the combine, which means he can run past most defensive backs. Moore will be one of Patrick Mahomes' favorite receivers as the Chiefs try to replace the production of Tyreek Hill. Moore was a dependable target in college, showcasing good hands and the ability to make catches in traffic. He's also a tough cover in zone coverage, which the Chiefs' offense Aaron Rodgers often faces.

Moore did not participate in the Chiefs' offseason program due to a hamstring issue, but he didn't show any signs of rust in the preseason opener against the Bears last Saturday, catching three passes for 23 yards. The rookie wide receiver will likely see more targets over the next two preseason games, as he has a chance to play an integral role in Kansas City's offense. After TE Travis Kelce, the battle for targets is wide open, as JuJu Smith-Schuster, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, and Mecole Hardman all have various abilities. Moore could slide in as the No. 3 WR and be utilized in the slot or flanker spot.

Moore currently has an ADP of No. 131 on FantasyPros, but that doesn't mean he's merely an afterthought on draft day. He plays in an offense with one of the best quarterbacks in the league who will spread the ball around to his receivers, tight ends, and running backs. Moore will be on the radar to be at the flex spot to start the season. However, he could end up being a WR2 as the Chiefs look to replace the targets left by Hill (159) and Byron Pringle (60). He has as much upside as any of the WRs on Kansas City's roster right now.

The other Moore had a solid rookie season with the Cardinals in 2021, but he could see Philadelphia Eagles shirt an expanded role with Christian Kirk now in Jacksonville and DeAndre Hopkins serving a six-game suspension. Last season, Moore was used across the formation and in various packages as Arizona's No. 3 wide receiver. The former Purdue standout recorded 54 receptions (64 targets) for 435 yards and a touchdown. He also had 18 carries for 76 yards and was utilized both in the punt and kickoff return game. Moore has the type of skills and speed that you want to get out in space and let him create.

That being said, Moore didn't have a ton of touchdowns last season, which hurt his fantasy production. T Philadelphia Eagles clothes he 5-7, 180-pound wide receiver only had five games with at least five receptions and one game with double-digit fantasy points. The good news for Moore is that he should fill the void left by Kirk, who led the Cardinals with 103 targets. Marquise Brown, who was acquired during the NFL draft from the Ravens, will take some of those targets, but head coach Kliff Kingsbury knows that he has to get Moore involved in the offense. It will help not only Kyler Murray but the rest of the offense.

2022 AUCTION VALUES (Standard & PPR):
QBs | RBs | WRs | TEs | D/STs | Kickers | Overall

Moore didn't play at all in the team's regular season open Dan Marino er last week against the Bengals. Kingsbury did not play in the starters and will do the same thing for the team's second preseason game against the Ravens. We should expect the Cardinals' offense to look slightly different without Hopkins, as they'll have two speedsters at the wide receiver spot between Brown and Moore. A.J. Green will see some playing time and be a big target on the outside for Murray. However, we should look forward to seeing Moore flying around the field and be that playmaker we saw at Purdue.

Last season, Moore's ADP on FantasyPros was No. 184 (WR63), as he was the team's fourth-best wideout behind Hopkins, Kirk, and Green. However, FantasyPros thinks that Moore will produce this season, with his ADP going up to No. 137. Moore is already locked in as a flex option to open the season, but depending on league size, he could be a solid WR3 with WR2 upside.

If I had to make a decision on which Moore to take, I'm going to lean toward Skyy. He has the better quarterback and should see a ton of playing time in three WR sets.
