Carolina Panthers wide receiver D.J. Moore had a breakout sophomore season in 2019 with 87 receptions on 135 targets, 1175 receiving yards, 4 touchdowns in 14 games and with UDFA Kyle Allen as his quarterback. To say the least, what Moore was able to accomplish in 2019 was rather remarkable.
In 2020, I think D.J. Moore will break out even more as he grows comfortable with Teddy
Bridgewater at QB. DJ, if not for getting injured in week 15, would have had almost 1300 yards and possibly another TD or two. Also his yards/game was 78.3 so averaged out to a full 16 game schedule would’ve given Moore 1253 yards.
I believe Moore will have a great season in 2020 because of new offensive coordinator Joe
Brady as well. Brady is a coach that likes to throw the ball around the field and get his
playmakers the ball in space, while continuing to take a lot of shots down the field. Last week, Brady was asked about D.J. Moore and what he expects out of him this upcoming season. This is what he had to say: “D.J. is a dynamic wide receiver and he was one of the first men I met when I got this job. I’m excited to see this year for him and to establish himself. I have high expectations for D.J. and the type of football player he is. I’m excited to see him develop and I’m excited to see him take his game to the next level.”
The only thing that could hold D.J. Moore back is his ability to score touchdowns. First and
foremost, it starts with getting him more targets in the end zone by Teddy Bridgewater. As good as D.J. Moore has been from goal line to goal line, he has struggled to put six on the board consistently. Through his first two seasons in the league, only six of his 142 catches have gone for touchdowns. If that changes in 2020, D.J. Moore will be a dangerous receiver to opposing teams defensive backs.
