2013 Experience: 8th season

Fantasy Football Outlook: Lance Moore continues to be a go to option for Drew Brees but don’t expect his yard numbers to go over 1,000 yards this season. The Saints will run the football more, and they will likely have to because New Orleans continues to lose offensive linemen and protection for Brees should be more of a concern.
Moore is still worth having on a fantasy roster and is likely better as a matchup play receiver rather than drafted with the idea in mind of starting him every week.

To help you get ready for draft day you will notice articles for ADP advice, cheat sheets, mock drafts and projected stats for Lance Moore here. During the season, you can also find regular weekly ranking articles at this section as well.
Summer of 2012: Fantasy Projections
We know by now what Lance Moore is in terms of fantasy value and that is a respectable WR4 to WR5 on your team. Moore will have a solid touchdown total and if injuries should happen to receivers like Marques Colston or Devery Henderson, his role will expand.
Moore may see a little more time of the field this year, with Robert Meachem out of the rotation, but I expect rookie Nick Toon to have a role, as well. Look to Moore as a late round addition on draft day.
Summer of 2011: Fantasy Projections
If you take a look at my projected stats below for Lance Moore, you might notice that I have his set for career numbers in receptions and yardage. With Marques Colston going through another major rehab after undergoing his second microfracture knee operation this off-season (five knee surgeries in five years) Moore has been the star in the Saints passing attack, this summer.
While speedster Robert Meachem should profit from an ineffective Colston, I believe it will be Moore that has the top fantasy value in the Saints passing game. Look for Drew Brees to use more as his check down option when things go bad, and Moore should be a name that is called early and often this season.

Moore Re-Signs With Saints
Lance Moore re-upped with the Saints and will be in the mix as one of Drew Brees top receivers in the passing game. By now we all know the drill when it comes to this offense, as Brees will spread the football out to multiple pass catchers, and that makes Moore a worth look to start as a bye week fill-in but not a weekly option.
While Lance Moore is hopeful about re-signing with the Saints, but it doesn’t help matters that the lockout is taking away his ability to partake in player workouts. Moore doesn’t want to acquire an injury while remaining a free agent, and that does help his odds of helping fantasy owners as he’s a fringe player to have at best. Look to Moore as a waiver wire option should he heat up like he did in 2008 and 2010, as we still need to find out where he will be playing this season.
In 2008 Lance Moore made the most of his opportunities to play when Marques Colston fell to injury. Last year he was injured and his most notable accomplishment was his two point conversion reception in the Super Bowl. Look for Moore to help Drew Brees but not produce enough to be a useful fantasy option.
2010 Fantasy Football Outlook
2009 Fantasy Year In Review: Lance Moore broke out for a nice season in 2008 with over 900 yards receiving and ten touchdowns. I thought he could ride that production into a starting job last year but injuries cost him nine games.
Moore did come back for the playoffs and made a key play or two in help his team win a championship. That was about the only relevance he had, however, as he was a non factor for fantasy.
2010 NFL Fantasy Football Player Rankings: Moore will be with the Saints this season, but it isn’t likely that he will see enough targets to be close to a bench player for your team. That said, Robert Meachem and Devery Henderson are both coming off surgery this offseason and if they fail to recover well Moore will get lots of work.
Since Moore has already shown he can be an option in fantasy with Drew Brees, he will always be a name worth watching. At this time, he’s not close to being a selection for your team on draft day. We need to see others on the depth chart have continued health problems first.
