Lance Moore has been ruled out for Sunday's Saints-Chargers game. We break down the fantasy implications.

Lance Moore (hamstring) did not practice all week and has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Analysis: Moore has been productive so far with the Saints thinner at receiver than usual. He ranks first among the receivers in targets and is tied with Marques Colston in receptions. Moore being out make Colston and Graham obvious must-start options and there really isn't much else that fantasy owners can look to as a sneaky plug-n-play WR. Darren Sproles should also be busy as a safety valve. If you're feeling saucy, Devery Henderson should get some extra snaps and might catch a deep ball against the somewhat slow San Diego secondary.
