Now that Matt Rhule has been fired, it seems like a foregone conclusion that the Carolina Panthers are going to have a fire sale. We’ve already heard reports of teams asking about Christian McCaffrey’s availability. If he’s on the market, then everyone on the team is.
Carolina’s other playmakers – DJ Moore – would be a valuable addition to a lot of teams in the league, but where will he eventually land, if he goes anywhere at all.
Let’s set the odds ourselves and break down Moore’s options for his next team.
Odds for DJ Moore’s Next Team
Green Bay Packers (+450)
We’ve seen through the first five weeks of the season that Aaron Rodgers needs help. Allen Lazard, Romeo Doubs and Christian Watson aren’t going to get the job done. Green Bay is incredibly reliant on the running game, and don’t have the explosiveness needed to be an elite offense. As long as Aaron Rodgers is their quarterback, the Packers should go out and get him a true No. 1 receiver.
Baltimore Ravens (+550)
In my opinion, the Ravens need to make this move more than the Packers, but they’ve shown they won’t make a big move to give Lamar Jackson the help he needs on the outside, so I’m skeptical they’ll make a move. Jackson is an MVP candidate with Mark Andrews as his No. 1 target. If he can get an outside threat to throw to, it would take some of the pressure off of him and may allow him to play more freely.
With as run heavy an offense as the Ravens have, a legitimate passing threat would be the perfect compliment.
Kansas City Chiefs (+700)
The Chiefs tried replacing Tyreek Hill with a lot of speedsters, and things just aren’t the same. JuJu Smith-Schuster and Marques Valdez-Scantling are good players, but neither of them are No. 1 receivers. Moore is that. Kansas City has survived because they have Patrick Mahomes, but they will need a playmaker come January. Moore is right there for the taking.
