Player Outlook
Moore enters this season competing for targets in what has become a crowded Cleveland receiving corps. Moore is only worth drafting with a late-round pick in the majority of leagues. The Browns added Jerry Jeudy this offseason, which should negatively impact Moore, especially since Amari Cooper and David Njoku should also command plenty of attention. In 2023, Moore's first season in Cleveland, he dealt with five different quarterbacks in Deshaun Watson, Joe Flacco, Dorian Thompson-Robinson, P.J. Walker and Jeff Driskel, and Moore averaged just 7.8 PPR points per game. Hopefully, with a full season of Watson, Moore can perform at a higher level. But he has to prove he should be among the team's target leaders this season, and that could be difficult with all the mouths to feed for the Browns. Most likely, we could see Moore on the waiver wire early in the season, and if he starts out playing well then add him where available.

  • Browns' Elijah Moore: Joined by Jeudy in Cleveland

    Moore is one of three Browns wide receivers entering a contract year, along with Amari Cooper and recent acquisition Jerry Jeudy, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. The Browns traded for Moore last offseason and installed him in a significant role, but his 903 snaps and 104 targets led to just 640 yards and two touchdowns. While poor QB play was a part of that, Cooper and TE David Njoku produced much better efficiency stats in the same offense and are now joined by Jeudy as another threat to take a significant chunk of the targets. Moore may have missed his breakout opportunity, and it isn't entirely out of the question that David Bell or Cedric Tillman could push him for a spot in three-wide formations.

  • Browns' Elijah Moore: Quiet in playoff loss

    Moore caught both of his targets for 12 yards in Saturday's 45-14 wild-card playoff loss to Houston. Moore had a quiet day in the playoff loss, which mirrored his first season in a Cleveland uniform. He was on the field for 63 plays (89 percent share) Saturday, but any impactful plays were made by others. For the regular season, Moore had 59 receptions on 104 targets, 640 yards and two touchdowns. The Browns also used him as a runner nine times and as a punt returner, following through on a preseason plan to feature Moore as a versatile weapon. However, the wide receiver rarely was a factor in a Browns win. Still, he was on the field for 75 percent of the offensive snaps and was third on the team in targets. If that usage continues next season, Moore will be in position to make a bigger impact in 2024, the final season of his current contract.

  • Browns' Elijah Moore: Active for Week 18

    Moore (concussion) is active for Sunday's game against the Bengals. The Browns' decision to keep Moore active seemingly implies that he's cleared concussion protocol, despite not having turned in a full practice at any point this past week. Even if that's the case, Moore isn't certain to take on his usual starting role, and it's possible he's held out of the contest entirely. The Browns are locked into the No. 5 seed for the AFC playoffs and have made several key contributors inactive for the contest, while multiple other starters are expected to be rested during the regular-season finale. Depth receivers such as Cedric Tillman, David Bell and James Proche may be better bets than Moore to turn in meaningful fantasy production Sunday.

  • Browns' Elijah Moore: Questionable, yet to clear protocol

    Moore (concussion) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports. Per Petrak, coach Kevin Stefanski said Friday that Moore is still in the NFL's five-step concussion protocol, but the receiver is trending in the right direction. The Browns are locked into the No. 5 seed in the AFC regardless of Sunday's result, so they will likely lean on the side of caution if there's any doubt about Moore's readiness after he exited last Thursday's win over the Jets due to a concussion.

  • Browns' Elijah Moore: Will practice Wednesday

    Moore (concussion) remains in concussion protocol but will practice Wednesday, Zac Jackson of The Athletic reports. Moore went to the hospital after hitting his head on turf in last Thursday's win over the Jets, but his presence at practice Wednesday suggests he's progressing through concussion protocol. The extent of Moore's participation in practice won't be known until the Browns post their first official Week 18 injury report later Wednesday. The Browns are locked in as the No. 5 seed in the AFC and plan to rest some key contributors Sunday in Cincinnati, so Moore may not play even if he clears concussion protocol before the weekend.

  • Browns' Elijah Moore: Headed to locker room

    Moore was spotted walking to the locker room before halftime after suffering an apparent head injury in Thursday's game against the Jets, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. Moore took a hard hit with just over two minutes left in the first half and remained on the field for a short period of time. He walked off under his own power and was evaluated in the medical tent before heading into the locker room. The exact diagnosis is unclear, though Moore is being evaluated for a head injury.

  • Browns' Elijah Moore: Second straight week under 20 yards

    Moore caught two of four targets for 19 yards in Sunday's 36-22 win over Houston in Week 16. Moore was held to under 20 receiving yards for the second consecutive game and fourth time this season. Cleveland's passing game with Joe Flacco at quarterback has become all about Amari Cooper and David Njoku, although Moore has a healthy 98 targets (third on team) over 15 games.

  • Browns' Elijah Moore: Quiet day in comeback win

    Moore caught two of three targets for 17 yards in Sunday's 20-17 win over the Bears in Week 15. Moore, who's had a mini resurgence with Joe Flacco under center, was barely noticeable in the Browns' comeback win. Both the targets and yards were his second fewest of the season. Moore entered the contest averaging four catches on eight targets for 55 yards over the previous five weeks. Amari Cooper and David Njoku are clearly Flacco's top options, but Moore is also competing for looks with rookie Cedric Tillman, who garnered four catches for 52 yards on eight targets Sunday.

  • Browns' Elijah Moore: Six targets in win

    Moore caught three of six targets for 42 yards in Sunday's 31-27 win over Jacksonville in Week 14. With Amari Cooper returning from concussion and available for a full game, Moore experienced a drop in targets from last week's season-high 12. He did have a role in Cleveland's final touchdown, when two Jacksonville defenders followed his crossing route, which left David Bell alone for a 41-yard touchdown catch. While Moore has not made the impact that was envisioned for him during the preseason, he's averaged seven targets per game. Now that quarterback Joe Flacco has revitalized the downfield passing attack, Moore could have a bigger impact over the final weeks of the regular season.

  • Browns' Elijah Moore: Sleeper WRs

    Joe Flacco will hopefully start again for the Browns in Week 14 against Jacksonville, and Amari Cooper (concussion) could be out for this game. Both situations should benefit Moore, who has a rapport with Flacco going back to their time with the Jets. Flacco just gave Moore 12 targets in Week 13 at the Rams, and Moore now has 35 targets in his past four games. He's scored at least 12 PPR points in three of those outings, and he's worth starting as a No. 3 Fantasy receiver in all leagues against the Jaguars, who are No. 7 in most Fantasy points allowed to opposing receivers.

  • Browns' Elijah Moore: May move into pivotal role Week 14

    Moore could emerge as Cleveland's top wideout Sunday against Jacksonville with Amari Cooper's (concussion) status uncertain for the Week 14 contest, Zac Jackson of The Athletic reports. Moore had his best game of the season against the Rams in Week 13, as he turned in a 4-83-0 receiving line on a season-high 12 targets. Those 12 targets went for 255 air yards, as Cooper's absence coupled with the presence of a strong-armed veteran quarterback in Joe Flacco -- who played with Moore on the Jets in the previous two seasons -- resulted in Moore garnering more downfield looks. If Cooper is unable to clear the five-step concussion protocol this week, Moore should be locked in as the Browns' No. 1 wideout against the Jaguars, and he could get the opportunity to continue to work with Flacco. Dorian Thompson-Robinson had started the Browns' previous two games before sitting out Week 13 with a concussion of his own, but he may not reclaim the top gig at quarterback if head coach Kevin Stefanski decides Flacco is better suited for the job on the heels of a solid showing against the Rams. If Stefanski decides to hand the job back to Thompson-Robinson, the Browns could lean more on a run-centric game plan that might hinder Moore's fantasy prospects, regardless of whether Cooper plays or not.

  • Browns' Elijah Moore: Week 14 Adds (WR Preview)

    Moore saw a season-high 12 targets in Week 13. You can attribute this mostly to the fact that Amari Cooper missed most of the game, but Moore does know Joe Flacco from his time with the Jets. If Cooper misses Week 14 Moore is a good flex with top 20 upside.

  • Browns' Elijah Moore: Week 14 Waiver Priority List

    We have two things to monitor with the Browns prior to Week 14 against Jacksonville, which is the health of Amari Cooper (concussion), and who is starting at quarterback in Cleveland. I hope it's Joe Flacco instead of Dorian Thompson-Robinson (concussion), and Flacco just gave Moore 12 targets in Week 13 at the Rams. Moore now has 35 targets in his past four games, and he's scored at least 12 PPR points in three of those outings. He could be a solid No. 3 Fantasy receiver in all leagues in Week 14 against Jacksonville, especially if Cooper is out. Moore is worth adding for 5-10 percent of your FAB. In deeper leagues, you can also take a look at Cedric Tillman (3 percent rostered), who has 11 targets in his past two games. Tillman is worth 1 percent of your FAB and will be a sleeper in deeper leagues if Cooper can't play against the Jaguars.

  • Browns' Elijah Moore: Leading receiver against Rams

    Moore caught four of 12 targets for 83 yards in Sunday's 36-19 loss to the Rams. The third-year wideout emerged as Joe Flacco's favorite target after Amari Cooper (concussion) left the game in the second quarter. He and Flacco have a brief history together when the two played for the Jets in 2021 and 2022. While Moore wasn't efficient with his looks, he still set a new season high in receiving yards. There's no guarantee Flacco gets another start if Dorian Thompson-Robinson (concussion) clears the league's protocol ahead of a Week 14 meeting with the Jaguars, nor that Cooper will remain sidelined. While Moore's performance was somewhat encouraging, he remains a very volatile fantasy option.

  • Browns' Elijah Moore: Does little with targets Sunday

    Moore caught three of nine targets for 44 yards in Sunday's 29-12 loss to the Broncos. He tied tight end David Njoku for the lead in targets among Browns players, but Moore finished only fourth in catches and third in receiving yards. The former Jet has yet to top 60 receiving yards in a game for his new squad and has only one TD in 11 contests, and Cleveland's uncertain QB situation -- rookie starter Dorian Thompson-Robinson (concussion) was replaced by PJ Walker in the third quarter -- leaves Moore with little fantasy appeal heading into a Week 13 clash with the Rams.

  • Browns' Elijah Moore: Week 12 Waiver Priority List

    Moore has two good games in a row against the Ravens and Steelers with at least 12 PPR points in each outing. Against Pittsburgh in Week 11, Moore had six catches for 60 yards on seven targets, and he seemed to have a solid rapport with Dorian Thompson-Robinson. We'll see if Moore can continue playing at this level heading into Week 12 at Denver, but he's worth adding in deeper leagues to find out for 1 percent of your FAB. It's hard to trust this Browns' passing attack right now, but Moore might be a nice surprise if he continues to play at this level.

  • Browns' Elijah Moore: Opens game-winning drive

    Moore caught six of seven targets for 60 yards in Sunday's 13-10 win over Pittsburgh. In a defensive affair, Moore led all pass catchers from either side with a season-high 60 receiving yards, including a 15-yard grab from rookie quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson that kicked off the drive that led to the game-winning field goal. Sunday's game plan in the absence of Deshaun Watson (shoulder) called for a lot of short passes, which benefited Moore out of the slot, and the usual reliance on the running backs. As DTR grows more comfortable under center, perhaps head coach Kevin Stefanski will open up the playbook. Cleveland added Joe Flacco to its practice squad this week, and his experienced arm could be a factor later in the season if the rookie falters.

  • Browns' Elijah Moore: Week 12 Early Waiver Targets (Add/Drop)

    It's been another disappointing season for Moore, who is running third in targets on a pretty poor passing offense. That's likely to continue moving forward, but we are seeing signs of him figuring things out lately, with five catches for 44 yards and a touchdown last week and now six for 60 Sunday. That came in a game where Cleveland threw the ball 43 times, so it's less impressive than it might seem initially, but Moore is a talented player, and if you've got a roster spot to play with, see if he can build on this in Week 12 against the Broncos.

  • Browns' Elijah Moore: Week 11 Waiver Priority List

    Moore scored his first touchdown with the Browns this season in Week 10 at Baltimore and also added five catches for 44 yards on seven targets. Maybe Moore is about to get going again with Deshaun Watson rounding back into form. Remember, in the first three games of the season with Watson, Moore had at least seven targets in each outing, including a nine-catch performance against Tennessee in Week 3. It's worth adding Moore for 1 percent of your FAB to see what develops over the next several weeks.
