Elijah Moore Will Make His Fantasy Owners Happy In 2022
Elijah Moore is one of those guys that we’re going to be drafting next year in the early rounds, thinking how was it even possible that we were able to draft him last season. He’s that good, and he’s about to show it in his sophomore season with the New York Jets. He might even be my favorite sophomore WR in fantasy this year, which is saying something with how I feel about Rashod Bateman.
For starters, when you look at his season a little more closely, it’s obvious he was actually really good. After getting integrated into the offense more, from week 7 to week 13 Moore averaged 17.7 PPR points. Then he got hurt and everyone just saw his total yards, thinking his rookie season was a flop. They couldn’t be further from the truth.
Now a lot of people seem concerned with the amount of “competition” the Jets brought in the off-season and that’s why they’re fading Moore. It has me really confused because when I look at this depth chart, I just see a bunch of side pieces and no real alpha. Except Elijah Moore of course.
Although he’s got loads of talent, Garret Wilson is still a rookie and Corey Davis never showed too much promise with Zach Wilson last year. Braxton Berrios and Denzel Mims sure do exist, but for fantasy purposes that’s about all they do. And if the hypothetical of C.J. Uzomah and Tyler Conklin being target hogs is why you’re fading Moore, I suggest you take a long look in the mirror and think twice about your thought process here. Don’t just believe me, though, I’m basing my opinions directly off of what I’m hearing from Jets training camp.
Look, Moore’s been the star of training camp for the second summer in a row. It’s no fluke. He’s firmly established himself as the leading wide receiver and I think he’s in a great situation to break out this year. He’s already got tremendous chemistry with his young quarterback, which is huge. On top of that, the Jets will probably be behind in most of the games they play. They’re going to need to throw the ball a lot, and Zach Wilson will look for his top receiver plenty.
Elijah Moore is that guy, man. I’m afraid this will be the lowest his value will be all season and probably for the next 5 years. Draft him cheap while you can, and enjoy bearing the fruits of Moore being a straight stud for your fantasy team.
