Lance Moore steps up for Saints and fantasy owners in Week 7

Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Lance Moore stepped up in Week 7. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Lance Moore was relevant in Sunday's win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. In Week 7, Moore became a go-to target for quarterback Drew Brees, accounting for a third of his production on the day. The Saints QB had a big day and much of it was thanks to Moore.

Moore reeled in 9 balls for 121 yards versus the Bucs on Sunday. Though, he was held without a score.

Fantasy Analysis: Moore is an ideal chain-moving receiver for this Saints offensive system. And with Jimmy Graham inactive, someone needed to step up in the passing game in that respect. Moore has always been capable of these big performances, but the absence of Graham really opened a window for him to perform today.

Long-term, it's hard to figure Moore as a reliable week-to-week option. One week it could be Marques Colston, the next week, Devery Henderson, and the next, Darren Sproles. Be cautious starting Moore, but don't rule it out if you're desperate one week.
