Steelers | Martavis Bryant emerges as another WR option

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 09:48:08 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant cut into WR Markus Wheaton's workload in Week 7 against the Houston Texans, and QB Ben Roethlisberger took three "shot" plays down the field to Bryant. The team is unsettled at receiver behind WR Antonio Brown, with WRs Wheaton, Lance Moore and Darrius Heyward-Bey fighting for targets. It was the first game in which Bryant was active this year.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant had a fine showing on Monday night in his first game this year. However, the second and third options behind Brown are hard to predict right now, making them nothing more than risky flex plays based on matchups.

Steelers | Justin Brown ahead of Lance Moore

Thu, 09 Oct 2014 09:03:26 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Justin Brown is higher on the depth chart than WR Lance Moore, because the team believes Brown is a better receiver than Moore.

Fantasy Tip: Moore missed the first few weeks of the season, which allowed Brown to receive valuable playing time. Brown likely will continue to receive more time as the slot receiver unless he suffers an injury, but neither player is a great fantasy option at this point.

Steelers | Lance Moore back on the field

Wed, 17 Sep 2014 13:20:26 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Lance Moore (groin) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 17.

Fantasy Tip: It appears like Moore will be able to play in Week 3 after missing the first two games of the season. Moore costs only $3,700 on FantasyScore, but owners can find better options to use.

Steelers | Lance Moore practicing Tuesday

Tue, 16 Sep 2014 10:06:03 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Lance Moore (groin) practiced in full Tuesday, Sept. 16, and the team will keep tabs on how he responds this week, according to head coach Mike Tomlin. Moore has missed the first two regular season games.

Fantasy Tip: Moore will likely be up in the air for the Week 3 game against the Carolina Panthers on the road. Even if Moore starts for the first time this year, he shouldn't be in your FantasyScore lineups.

Wed, 10 Sep 2014 13:23:27 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Lance Moore (groin) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 10, and has been ruled out for Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: Moore only had a few days to get ready and will sit out his second straight game. Moore will not be a fantasy option until he recovers from the injury.

Steelers | Lance Moore doesn't practice

Tue, 09 Sep 2014 16:31:56 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Lance Moore (groin) did not practice Tuesday, Sept. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Moore wasn't active in Week 1 and doesn't have much time to heal before Week 2 against the Baltimore Ravens Thursday night. He'll be cheap $3,700 (7.4% of cap), but even if he does play, Markus Wheaton is the more intriguing wideout option behind Antonio Brown in this offense.

The team is required to release an injury report for their Week 2 game Thursday, Sept. 11, against the Baltimore Ravens, even though they did not officially take the practice field Monday.

Steelers | Lance Moore may not play

Mon, 08 Sep 2014 12:39:42 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Lance Moore (groin) is considered questionable for Week 2, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.

Fantasy Tip: The team is on a short week, so Moore could be held out again so he can have more time to rest his injury. Owners should probably consider not using Moore this week since there are probably better options available.

Steelers | Lance Moore won't play

Fri, 05 Sep 2014 13:31:46 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Lance Moore (groin) did not practice Friday, Sept. 5, and has been ruled out for Week 1 against the Cleveland Browns. It'll open up snaps for WRs Justin Brown and/or Martavis Bryant (shoulder), but Bryant is unlikely to play because of a shoulder ailment. That means Brown and WR Darrius Heyward-Bey will likely be used alongside WRs Antonio Brown and Markus Wheaton. Browns CB Joe Haden is likely to lock on to Brown for the majority of the game, meaning the other receivers could see good opportunities to make an impact.

Fantasy Tip: Wheaton presents an excellent buying opportunity at FantasyScore against the Browns at a price of $3,700 (7.4% of cap) - the basement salary for a wideout.

Steelers | Lance Moore out again

Thu, 04 Sep 2014 15:17:34 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Lance Moore (groin) did not practice for the second straight day Thursday, Sept. 4.

Fantasy Tip: It's unknown what Moore's chances of playing Sunday against the Cleveland Browns are. We wouldn't advise starting him, though, even at a FantasyScore price of $4,000. The smarter play would be Markus Wheaton ($3,700 - 7.4 percent of cap).

Steelers | Lance Moore misses practice

Wed, 03 Sep 2014 13:32:21 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Lance Moore (groin) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Moore has had some fantasy value in previous seasons, but he probably should not be owned in many fantasy leagues at this point. Owners who have him on their roster can keep him on the bench.

Steelers | Darrius Heyward-Bey in good shape

Wed, 27 Aug 2014 22:01:17 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Darrius Heyward-Bey appears to be in good shape for a roster spot, as the team will likely keep six receivers on the 53-man roster. WRs Antonio Brown, Markus Wheaton, Lance Moore, Martavis Bryant, Justin Brown and Heyward-Bey are expected to comprise the group.

Steelers | Three fighting for No. 5 WR job

Mon, 07 Jul 2014 15:59:32 -0700

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers WRs Justin Brown, Darrius Heyward-Bey and Derek Moye are still battling for the No. 5 wide receiver job. WRs Antonio Brown, Lance Moore, Markus Wheaton and Martavis Bryant hold the top four spots on the depth chart.

Fantasy Tip: There isn't a lot of fantasy value to go around after Brown, Wheaton and Moore. Bryant is worthy of a late-round flier in deep leagues, given his size in comparison to the Steelers other receivers, and potential end zone usage. Heyward-Bey should stick with the team, leaving recently-drafted Brown to beat out Moye, who failed to see much playing time in 2013, after breaking camp as an undrafted free agent.

Steelers | Three-way battle for No. 5 WR job?

Sat, 07 Jun 2014 19:27:43 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers WRs Antonio Brown, Markus Wheaton and Lance Moore are expected to be the team's top three wideouts, with WR Martavis Bryant likely a lock to also make the roster. That leaves one job open, with WRs Justin Brown, Darrius Heyward-Bey and Derek Moye likely battling it out for the spot.

Steelers | Lance Moore signs

Fri, 21 Mar 2014 12:51:41 -0700

The Pittsburgh Steelers signed free-agent WR Lance Moore (Saints) to an undisclosed deal Friday, March 21.

Fantasy Tip: Moore figures to fill the slot receiver position as the No. 3 wideout behind Antonio Brown and Markus Wheaton in 2014. Moore was dinged up for most of last season, but he failed to make much noise when healthy in a very potent offense. Consider him a WR4 or 5 for fantasy football.

Saints | Targeting ball control

Sun, 09 Mar 2014 15:40:27 -0700

The New Orleans Saints are targeting a ball-control offense in 2014. They are expected to use four-receiver sets with a satellite running back less often. This philosophy switch is probably what led to the release of RB Darren Sproles and WR Lance Moore.

Saints | WRs step up with Marques Colston out

Sun, 03 Nov 2013 15:34:44 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Robert Meachem had four grabs for 93 yards in Week 9 against the New York Jets, and WR Lance Moore chipped in with six catches for 70 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Meachem and Moore were the top wideouts for QB Drew Brees with WR Marques Colston (knee) inactive. Neither is particularly attractive from a fantasy perspective for the long term, but they're worth a look in Week 10 if Colston is sidelined again.

Saints | Marques Colston to miss Week 9

Sun, 03 Nov 2013 08:29:03 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (knee) has been declared inactive for Week 9.

Fantasy Tip: With Colston out, Kenny Stills likely will receive an increase in his fantasy value since he will get more playing time. Lance Moore likely will also see more targets during the game. Both should be starting options for owners this week.

Saints | Plenty of depth if Marques Colston can't go

Fri, 01 Nov 2013 21:02:08 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (knee) is uncertain to play in the Week 9 game against the New York Jets. If he cannot go, the team still has good depth at the receiver position with WR Lance Moore healthy, and WR Kenny Stills emerging as a solid threat. WRs Robert Meachem and Nick Toon also provide good depth.

Fantasy Tip: If Colston is inactive, and TE Jimmy Graham (foot) is again limited, bump Moore up to a WR3 or flex play in standard leagues, and a low-end WR2 in points-per-receptions (PPR) fantasy formats. Stills would also be worth a look as a WR3/4 or flex play if Colston is sidelined.

Fri, 11 Oct 2013 15:43:50 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Lance Moore (hand) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 11, and is listed as questionable for Week 6.

Fantasy Tip: Moore has missed the last few games because of the hand injury and there is a good chance he misses this week's game after sitting out practice. Moore likely will not have much fantasy value when he does return to the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: It's been a tough season for Moore. Keep an eye on him on the waiver wire because he could be big for the fantasy playoff weeks.

New Orleans Saints WR Lance Moore (hand) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 3, and his availability for Week 5 is in major question. Moore didn't wear any protection on his injured right hand like he did last week, but he wants to be fully recovered before returning to action.

Fantasy Tip: As of now, it's looking like Moore could miss his second straight game. He's been a pretty big disappointment so far this year. Don't feel compelled to keep him on your roster any longer.
