Skyy Moore has done less than hoped for early in his career.
Every offseason, fantasy football managers search for the next easy button Chief’s skill position player to help put their team over the top. In 2020 rookie drafts, fantasy gamers flew too close to the sun by selecting Clyde Edwards-Helaire in the same tier as Jonathan Taylor. We won’t even talk about what FFPC drafters did with their free look after his 2020 Week 1 debut against the Houston Texans. Like a penny stock you can’t quite quit, fantasy managers have persistently gone after Chiefs players tied to Patrick Mahomes.
There is survivorship bias in players that have been deemed hits such as Isiah Pacheco and Rashee Rice. For every Pacheco and Rice there is a Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Kadarius Toney, and Skyy Moore. The challenge going forward will be to decipher which players are truly talented versus just getting a ticket to play with Patrick Mahomes.
Separating the dopamine hit from late ADP rewards that Chiefs players offer will take plenty of discipline in the future. With 3.8 fantasy points per game on a 52.6% snap share in 2023 there isn’t quite much to expect from Skyy Moore in Super Bowl LVIII or heading into next season. If you’ve invested heavily into Skyy Moore, you have had to be a bag holder.

The Kansas City Chiefs have activated WR Skyy Moore from the Injured Reserve
The Kansas City Chiefs have activated WR Skyy Moore from the Injured Reserve. Moore, who was shutdown after the Chiefs Week 13 game vs the Packers due to a knee injury, was back at practice in limited fashion on Wednesday.
Moore has a shot to play in the Chiefs divisional round game against the Bills. Moore, even if he does play, will be relegated back to his rotational role after another lackluster season where he fell well short of expectations.
The Kansas City Chiefs have placed Skyy Moore on the Injured Reserve with a knee injury.
The Kansas City Chiefs have placed Skyy Moore on the Injured Reserve with a knee injury. After falling well below expectations in his 2022 rookie season, Moore gave fantasy managers an encore performance in 2023 falling well below preseason hype.
Richie James who returned from injury in Week 15 should see a bump in playing time, alongside Justyn Ross who is expected to be elevated to the 53 man roster this week. Moore isn’t leaving many vacated targets, so we shouldn’t be too excited for either of these options to be relevant at this stage
Skyy Moore recorded zero catches on just three targets in Week 1.
Fantasy owners with Skyy Moore in their active lineup were rewarded with an atrocious line after the Kansas City Chiefs’ Week 1 Thursday Night matchup, hosting the Detroit Lions. A pre-season riser in fantasy circles, the 2nd-year receiver was expected to take on a bigger role in 2023, following a very quiet rookie campaign, as the Chiefs try and find an alpha in the wide receiver room. Judging from Thursday night’s one-point loss, the Chiefs are still looking.
Moore tallied an abysmal 0.4 PPR points during a performance which saw him garner three total targets from quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Moore did not record a catch in the affair. The points he did accrue came on a gadget handoff which saw Moore thunder for a 4-yard gain.
Moore, the producer of a 22 catch, 250 yard rookie season, was out-targeted by TE Noah Gray, RB Isaiah Pacheco, and WRs Justin Watson, Kadarius Toney, and rookie Rashee Rice, all of whom pulled down at least one reception. Moore quieted the off-season buzz in one week and remains a fantasy wait-n’-see. Based on usage and performance, it is not advised to include Moore in your lineup until further notice.
