DJ. Fantasy football impact of Moore for the Chicago Bears

On Friday, March 10, the Chicago Bears traded draft picks and sixth-year wide receiver D.J. admit to sending the number one overall pick instead.

The move prepares the Panthers to go after their franchise quarterback, but Moore's move to Chicago for the 25-year-old has an immediate fantasy impact.

A first-round harvest in the 2018 draft by Carolina, D.J. Moore joined the Panthers during a hard time for wide receivers.

As a rookie, Moore completed with 55 catches for 788 yards and two scores as a fringe WR3 for fantasy purposes.

His most magnificent campaign arrive in 2022 when he matched Tyreek Hill in essentially every efficiency metric.

Moore moving from one run-heavy displeasure to another—Carolina's 51.5% passer rate in neutral game scripts last season was the fifth-lowest in the league.

Chicago was near the extremity of the league in almost every passing stat in 2022.

Tied for the fourth-highest median throw depth (9.0 yards) among quarterbacks with at least 200 pass attempts.

Alphas generally remain alphas, even with a team switch (see Davante Adams, AJ Brown, and Stefon Diggs recently, to name a few).

As the 39th overall pick in the underdog league, the cost of acquiring Fields is already significant but in today's best ball climate, it is well worth the investment.
