Fantasy Outlook, Value, Projections, and Rankings

As we inch toward the new season, the ever-changing NFL landscape has player fantasy values constantly on the move. Whether you’re used to the dynasty platform or are still learning the rules, let’s dive into the latest dynasty fantasy football value of Skyy Moore.

Skyy Moore’s Dynasty Outlook and Value

I really liked Moore as a prospect. Maybe it’s a scouting flaw, but I’m a sucker for incredibly dominant small-school early-declare wide receivers. But Moore was far from a perfect prospect. At 5’10”, 191 pounds, he did not profile as a WR1 at the NFL level. His burst and agility were also lacking.

As a rookie, Moore could not have walked into a better set of circumstances. Not only was he gifted the most talented quarterback in the history of the game, but he found himself on a wide-open depth chart.

Entering the 2022 season, the Chiefs did not have a single receiver — outside of maybe JuJu Smith-Schuster — who you could say for sure would be a starter.

The sad reality is Moore enthusiasts must accept that he really has no excuse for being unable to get on the field as a rookie. Mecole Hardman, MVS, Justin Watson, and Kadarius Toney (once he arrived) all played ahead of Moore. The rookie second-rounder was essentially the team’s WR6.

Targets are earned, and Moore earned just 5.6% of them. He caught 22 passes for 250 yards and no touchdowns, falling well short of the 500-yard threshold we look for in rookie receivers. He averaged 2.7 ppg.

At this point, if Moore ever ascended beyond a rotational WR3/4 at the NFL level, it would be an upset. It’s unfortunate, given how much I and many others liked him. But we now have new information, and it’s not particularly good.

Moore also failed the eye test. This guy with 4.41 speed had just an 8.5 average depth of target and looked completely incapable of making defenders miss. Seemingly every time he touched the ball, it was near the line of scrimmage on a jet sweep or a screen.

He would have acres of space in front of him, with blockers. Yet, somehow, he’d find a way to get the absolute minimum. Suffice it to say I was wholly unimpressed by Moore as a rookie.

Skyy Moore’s Fantasy Ranking

Dynasty managers who spent a 2022 second-round rookie pick on Moore obviously cannot outright cut him. You can try and trade him, but I doubt you will get anything worthwhile in return. Unfortunately, the best course of action is likely to just hold him and hope he takes a rather unprecedented leap in his sophomore season.

Based on draft capital and a barren depth chart that is now without Smith-Schuster, Moore remains WR47 (No. 122 overall) in our dynasty Superflex ratings. Truthfully, I think this is the highest he will be ranked for the remainder of his career. There is a spot in which I’d take a shot on him in dynasty startup drafts, but it’s well after his ADP.
