Who is Elijah Moore

During his time at Ole Miss, Moore commanded a 99th-percentile college target share (36.7%) and had a college dominator of 41.9% (86th-percentile). His 4.40 40 time is good for a 92nd-percentile at his position, as he also has a 97th-percentile agility score of 10.67. His PlayerProfiler.com comp is Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett.

As a rookie, Moore entered the 2021 season with loads of promise. Naturally, Moore had some adjusting to do as he made the leap from the SEC to the NFL, but he finished his rookie campaign with 43 receptions for 538 yards and five touchdowns, and averaged 76.5 receiving yards per game from Weeks 8 to 13, which wound up being the last six games he would play in as a rookie.

Moore’s rookie campaign was cut short due to a concussion suffered in Week 3 and a quad strain suffered in Week 13, as he finished the season with just 11 games played. His per game totals stretched over the span of a 17-game season would have painted a much better picture for the Jets rookie, as he was pacing for 66-831-8, which would have given him the fourth most receiving yards for rookie wide receivers. He ranked 50th in total air yards with 831, and had six drops while seeing 24 deep balls. He averaged 28.0 routes run per game, and was on pace for 476 total routes before seeing his season cut short.

Moore just met the top-36 threshold for best ball receivers in 2021, finishing with a fantasy ranking of WR36 with 59.9 Best Ball Points Added. In regards to next gen stats, Moore ranked 31st in target rate (18.6%) and No. 23 in hog rate (16.2%), making him one of the most heavily targeted wide receivers in the league on a per-snap basis.

Heading into the 2022 season, Moore’s success is going to hinge heavily on second-year quarterback Zach Wilson, who the Jets selected no. 2 overall in the 2021 NFL Draft. Those excited about Moore’s potential next season will likely drive his ADP up in drafts. It wouldn’t be surprising to see him turn into a great value or bust depending on how the Jets and Wilson improve in year two.
