Matt Moore | Miami Dolphins | QB
2012 Experience: 6th season
Fantasy Football Outlook: Upon Chad Henne’s season-ending injury, Matt Moore took over and helped the Dolphins play well down the stretch. Moore will never likely run a pass first offense, as he’s better suited to be a game manager with a strong running game, and quality defense, needed to win games.
That’s not all that bad, and it’s possible if Moore were to play the entire season, this squad may finish around .500, but look for the Dolphins to insert rookie Ryan Tannehill, once they are out of the playoff hunt. Moore should be a quality backup quarterback in this league for some time, but he only had value in deep leagues.

Summer of 2011: Fantasy Projections
For now, it looks like the Dolphins are unlikely to trade for Kyle Orton so Matt Moore figures to be the possible No.2 quarterback in Miami. I was a big supporter of Moore coming into last season, and truthfully I feel like Moore was dealt a bad hand with injuries to himself and his only viable receiver Steve Smith. If Chad Henne is the starter in Miami, and he should struggle again, don’t be surprised if Moore gets a look at some point.

Count me in as a someone who thought Matt Moore would have a respectable season as the Panthers starting quarterback. After a great finish to the 2009 season, Moore showed flashes of being the kind of quarterback who could lead this run first offense back into relevance in the NFC South but that didn’t happen as an injury dominated his effectiveness and ultimately ended his season.
Now a free agent, Moore will wind up backup someone on another team as his opportunity to start from week one is all but gone in his career. I still believe he can help a team for a stretch, but he’s mostly good for keeping a top fantasy receiver relevant with the main starting quarterback out of the lineup.
Matt Moore won the starting job when Jake Delhomme was let go this offseason. Sadly he didn’t keep the job long as he was ineffective in the first two weeks and now Jimmy Clausen has been given the job. Moore will be a life time backup quarterback from this point on.
2010 Fantasy Football Outlook
2009 Fantasy Year In Review: John Fox finally let Matt Moore on the field after Jake Delhomme suffered a hand injury that cost him the rest of the season. Upon Moore’s arrival, everyone in the Panthers passing game actually looked like they could play football.
Steve Smith was a top ten fantasy producing receiver once again and even the rest of the passing game started producing. It was embarrassingly clear to see by the end of the year that the Panthers should have played Moore much earlier in the season.
2010 NFL Fantasy Football Player Rankings: With the second easiest passing schedule in football Moore has an opportunity to shine in 2010. Many fantasy owners may look at this team and only know about Smith as a relevant option, but I believe that will change by seasons end.
In Moore, fantasy owners should have themselves a very nice backup to go to when they need a change of pace. Expect Moore to produce a good season and don’t worry about Jimmy Clausen until maybe next year.
