His Career:

Moore, a first-round pick in the 2018 draft of Carolina, D.J., joins the Panthers at a difficult time for a wide receiver. Cam Newton's superpowers were abating and Moore's new team was just in time for a quarterback transition that would ultimately prove to be the duration of Moore's career in Carolina.

As a rookie, Moore had 55 catches for 788 yards and two scores as a WR3 for fantasy purposes. For the next four seasons, Moore's role as a target hog would only grow, placing him in the top 10 in target share over the past two seasons.

From a performance standpoint, Moore has been above average but not the best (upper class, first class). While his finest (perfect, first-rate) fantasy season was in 2019, potentially his most affecting campaign came in 2022, when he matched Tyreek Hill in essentially every performance metric.

Moore has shown that his effectiveness can improve, but a lack of (shortage, decrease, default) quarterback play has hindered his fantasy production.

He never finished higher than WR16 in half PPR leagues and scored more than four touchdowns in a season only once.

One trait that could help him set up spike fantasy weeks is his newfound ability to go deep — he ranked in the top 10 in average target depth last year — something his new team likes to do.

Chicago Line:

For Chicago, they got truly what they wanted. They traded back, managed to acquire a top-flight wide receiver in a free agent class and draft class that was feeble at the position, and now have more shots to pick more players to stock that roster.

Bears GM Ryan Paul knew correctly what he wanted when the Bears got the first overall pick, and he made sure he got it. Now, using these picks is going to be the next big difficulty.

The Bears went from being one of the worst receiver groups in football at the start of last season to an exciting room full of talented young veterans before next year.

Chicago had already recruited and drafted Darnell Mooney as a downfield threat and gained (obtained) Chase Claypool from the Steelers for a second-round pick at the trade deadline.

Moore will instantly (urgently, rapidly) become the No. 1 option for Fields, and should put Claypool and Mooney in a position to achieve (benefit).

The Bears can now use their cap space to mend (patch, and repair) the unpleasant and protective lines. This trade sets Chicago up nicely both now and in the future.
