New Orleans Saints wide receiver Lance Moore led the team in receiving in Week 3. We discuss the fantasy implications.

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Lance Moore put together a solid effort in his team's loss to Kansas City on Sunday. In the Week 3 match-up, Moore finished with four receptions for 70 yards and a touchdown. However, his numbers proved to be futile, as the Saints fell to 0-3.

Fantasy Analysis: There was the potential for Moore to become more of a featured receiver in this offense with the offseason departure of Robert Meachem. That still may prove true. However, the Saints offense is working through some things as they look to re-establish their identity. Moore may prove to be a good match-up player or flex, but he is not a typical starting fantasy receiver right now.
