Description: Steelers receiver Lance Moore was inactive for Sunday's game due to a groin injury and has already been ruled out for Thursday's game against Baltimore
Insight: Markus Wheaton was very active in Week 1 (6-97-0) and both he and Antonio Brown should be Ben Roethlisberger's two primary targets Thursday night. Find a way to get Wheaton into your lineup.

Description: Steelers receiver Lance Moore is inactive for Sunday's game against the Browns due to a groin injury.
Insight: Expect the Steelers to turn to Justin Brown in the slot, but Markus Wheaton sees the biggest fantasy boost with Moore's absence. Wheaton is making his starting debut, lining up opposite of a fantasy favorite Antonio Brown. Heath Miller could also see a small increase in targets on Sunday.

Description: Former New Orleans wide receiver Lance Moore has signed a two-year deal with Pittsburgh.
Insight: Moore was always a Drew Brees favorite when it came to crunch time, but his fantasy numbers for the most part have been pedestrian. Outside of Antonio Brown, the Steelers have little talent at wideout and Moore could win the No. 2 job.
3/7/2014 3:47:00 PM
Description: New Orleans has released wide receiver Lance Moore.
Insight: Moore produced nothing in the way of trade interest because of a sizable salary, so the team let him go. He was always a Drew Brees favorite in crunch-time, but the Saints have a number of young talented receivers on their roster. Kenny Stills, in particular, could be primed for a big season.
10/26/2013 6:17:00 PM
Description: New Orleans wide receiver Lance Moore is listed on the team's injury report as probable.
Insight: Moore, who has missed time with an injured wrist, could return to fantasy relevance this week against Buffalo if Drew Brees' favorite receiver Jimmy Graham is unable to play. Still, he makes for a risky play given his overwhelming lack of success this season (just four catches for 44 yards in three games),

Insight: Moore caught just four passes for 44 yards the first three games. Even though Jimmy Graham is questionable with a foot injury, fantasy owners can leave Moore on the bench until we see how the team utilizes him.

Description: Saints receiver Lance Moore (hand) missed Thursday's practice after injuring his hand and missing half of Sunday's game against the Cardinals.
Insight: Moore, who had 1,000 yards last season, has just four catches for 44 yards on 11 targets through three games. The Saints play on Monday night so fantasy owners cannot afford to wait to see if he is playing.
12/30/2012 5:09:00 PM
Description: Saints receiver Lance Moore needed 80 yards in Week 17 to reach 1,000 for the first time in his career; he had 121 on four catches.

Insight: Moore has been solid this season with 45 catches for 699 yards and four touchdowns and is a favorite target of Drew Brees in clutch third down situations.
11/12/2012 10:32:00 AM
Description: Saints receiver Lance Moore had seven receptions for 91 yards in Week 10 against Atlanta after recording just five catches in the previous two games combined.
Insight: Moore seemed to take a back seat in the Saints offense once Jimmy Graham returned to the lineup. However, he was Drew Brees' No. 2 target after Graham Sunday while Devery Henderson went without a catch. Moore may be hit and miss since the Saints have so many weapons but he's still a solid WR3 tied to an excellent offense.
10/22/2012 11:17:00 PM
Description: Saints receiver Lance Moore caught nine balls for 121 yards in Week 7 against the Buccaneers.
Insight: Moore seems to be fully recovered from the hamstring injury that kept him out a couple of weeks ago. He should remain a capable WR3 even when Jimmy Graham comes back from an ankle injury.
10/21/2012 12:18:00 PM
Description: Saints receiver Lance Moore (hamstring) practiced all week and is active for Week 7 against Tampa Bay.
Insight: With tight end Jimmy Graham out and Devery Henderson not producing, Drew Brees should be looking to Moore, Marques Colston and Darren Sproles all day long.

Description: Saints receiver Lance Moore (hamstring) practiced fully Wednesday, according to Larry Holder of the New Orleans Times-Picayune.
Insight: Moore missed Week 5 with the injury but was able to rest during the Saints' bye week in Week 6. Get him back in your lineups and downgrade Devery Henderson.

Description: According to beat writer Mike Triplett, Saints wideout Lance Moore (hamstring) missed Friday's practice, his third straight, and will not play on Sunday.
Insight: Moore, always a Drew Brees favorite in key situations, has become a valuable fantasy asset with Robert Meachem in San Diego. He's second on the team in targets with 37, behind Jimmy Graham and had caught 19 balls for 287 yards and two scores. Devery Henderson might get a bump in fantasy value.
10/4/2012 5:19:00 PM
Description: Saints wideout Lance Moore (hamstring) missed practice Thursday for the second straight day, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune.
Insight: Moore has been a nice late-round find for fantasy owners this year, posting 287 yards on 19 catches with two touchdowns in four games. However, it's becoming increasingly likely that he won't play in Week 5.
10/3/2012 4:05:00 PM
Description: Saints wideout Lance Moore sat out Wednesday's practice because of a hamstring injury.
Insight: Moore has had a terrific year up to this point, hauling in 19 catches for 287 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Though New Orleans is listing him as questionable, we're betting he'll be on the field for Sunday night's game against San Diego.

Description: New Orleans receiver Lance Moore has far surpassed Devery Henderson in the Saints offense and has as many targets as Marques Colston after four weeks (32).
Insight: Moore is a Drew Brees favorite and is currently on a pace to catch 76 balls for 1,148 yards and 8 TDs. Certainly starter-worthy statistics.
