With the departure of Tyreek Hill, the Kansas City Chiefs will be retooling their passing game with the opportunity for some young players to step up. One of those guys could be second-round draft pick Skyy Moore.
Moore recorded 95 catches for 1,292 yards and 10 touchdowns in his junior season at Western Michigan
Skyy Moore’s injury
Injury suffered: Left hamstring
When it happened: Offseason
Moore missed most of the Chiefs offseason program dealing with the hamstring injury, including OTAs and minicamp. The rookie did report for training camp, but suffered a left hip injury during Tuesday’s practice.

August 3rd update: Moore was back at practice the following day, so it appears his hip injury wasn’t serious.

2022 Fantasy football outlook
The hamstring appears to be healthy, but even a minor injury this early in camp is concerning. Moore is going to have to work his way into Patrick Mahomes’ sight line and even then Travis Kelce is going to be his favorite target with Juju Smith-Schuster and Mecole Hardman getting plenty of looks. In a keeper’s league, Moore is a good option, but in year one he’s in wait-and-see mode.
