After opening up the preseason last week with a win over the Dallas Cowboys, the Arizona Cardinals lost 17-10 at home to the Kansas City Chiefs on Friday night. Both teams had their starting offenses on the field to begin the game, but eventually the second and third-string players saw snaps and finished the game.

Cardinals rookie wideout Rondale Moore saw some time with the starters, playing seven out of nine snaps out of the slot. Despite Arizona being loaded at wide receiver, they appear to have a plan for Moore and will find various ways to get his speed onto the field.

Stats

Moore had three receptions (three targets) for 15 yards and one carry for eight yards.

Analysis

The former Purdue wide receiver did not have any amazing stats on Friday night, but will still be a player that many fantasy football managers will covet this season. Through the first two preseason games, we’ve seen Moore used across the formation by the Cardinals. In last week’s preseason opener, Moore had four targets and had two carries.

With his type of speed, it’s imperative that head coach Kliff Kingsbury finds a way to get him on the field. Moore is definitely a player that holds WR3/FLEX option value, especially if you can get him in a PPR league. He adds another dimension to a Cardinals’ offense that has a good amount of talent at wide receiver.
