Rondale Moore ruled out for MNF Week 14 vs. Patriots

We break down the news that Rondale Moore has a groin injury. What it means for Week 14 and beyond.

Saturday Update: As expected, Moore has been formally ruled out for the team’s Monday Night Football contest. Greg Dortch is set to take over Moore’s role as the slot guy, with DeAndre Hopkins and Marquise Brown serving as the top two receivers for Kyler Murray.

Friday Update: The Cardinals conducted a walkthrough on Friday since they don’t play until Monday night. Wide receiver Rondale Moore was listed as a DNP on Friday though, causing concern over his potential availability this week. Without at least a limited practice on Saturday, Moore will likely head into Monday either prematurely ruled out or listed as doubtful.

We have made it to Week 14 of the NFL season. The slate will wrap up on Monday, December 12, with the Arizona Cardinals taking on the New England Patriots. The Cardinals’ offense has been dealing with injuries, and unfortunately, it seems like their bye week didn’t allow them the time needed to get healthy. Wide receiver Rondale Moore is coming out of the off-week dealing with a groin injury. He missed practice on Thursday, and it remains to be seen how serious the issue is.

Fantasy football implications for Week 14

Moore has had a rollercoaster of a season and has flirted with fantasy football relevance. He typically sees an uptick in work when either DeAndre Hopkins or Marquise Brown are limited, and he sees more work in the offense. For now, Moore would be a dart throw of a flex play in PPR leagues if his teammates are healthy. If Moore is inactive, you could look at Greg Dortch if you are desperate.
