If you drafted New Orleans wide receiver Lance Moore and still have him sitting somewhere on your bench, congratulations. You're about to be rewarded handsomely.
Moore, of course, was one of the breakout stars of fantasy football '08. In the absence of Marquis Colston, Moore burst onto the fantasy scene, catching 79 passes for nearly 1,000 yards and 10 touchdowns. Every year a fantasy league is swung by a major waiver wire pickup, and last year was the year of Lance Moore.
This year, Moore has been hampered by injuries, and he hasn't been very productive. Through the first five weeks, he had just three catches for 39 yards and no touchdowns. But Moore was apparently feeling better after the Saints bye week in Week 5, and it showed against the Giants: Moore caught six passes for 78 yards and a touchdown. Welcome back, man.
Yahoo!'s Brad Evans summed it up perfectly:
Obviously, Colston is Drew Brees'(notes) main flame, but in the Saints' seemingly unstoppable spread-the-wealth attack he should continue to net at least 6-9 targets per contest. Miami has performed marginally against the pass allowing the seventh-most 20-yard pass plays. Throw in the Fins' inflexibility up front, and Moore could be a vertical slayer on South Beach.
Moore should make another big impact on Sunday.
