Pittsburgh Steelers' WRs Antonio Brown, Lance Moore, Markus Wheaton and Martavis Bryant hold the top four spots on the team's depth chart. That leaves Justin Brown, Darrius Heyward-Bey and Derek Moye to battle for the No. 5 wide receiver job.
Huddle Up: Moore won't have Drew Brees throwing him the ball anymore in the Saints' pass-happy attack, but he should easily top his average of 51 catches from the last 3 seasons if he can start at least half the season -- something he's never done in 8 pro seasons.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Lance Moore could start at wide receiver this upcoming season and move to the slot receiver when the team lines up with three or more receivers.
Huddle Up: Some reports have second-year man Markus Wheaton and 2014 fourth-round pick Martavis Bryant vying to start opposite Antonio Brown, but Moore -- who had at least 52 catches in 4 of his 6 seasons in the Big Easy -- is hands-down the most qualified to fill the position.

The Pittsburgh Steelers signed free-agent WR Lance Moore (Saints) to an undisclosed two-year deal Friday, March 21.
Huddle Up: Moore should replace Emmanuel Sanders in the Pittsburgh receiver rotation, which isn't likely to yield as much fantasy value as catching passes from Drew Brees did.

The New Orleans Saints may ask WR Lance Moore to accept a pay cut in order to remain with the team.
Huddle Up: Moore's 37 catches, 457 yards and 2 TDs in 2013 were 4-year lows for the wideout and the Saints are planning to adjust his contract accordingly.

New Orleans Saints WR Lance Moore (hand) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 23.
Huddle Up: This is a great sign for more who has been out the entire season until now. Hopefully he can get back on the field, perhaps this week. If he is available on the waiver wire, run to grab him.

New Orleans Saints WR Lance Moore is likely out for Week 6. He could also miss a couple of more weeks.
Huddle Up: Moore's role as a fringe fantasy contributor has been all but forgotten in his absence, with Jimmy Graham dominating the Saints' passing game and Marques Colston, Darren Sproles, Pierre Thomas and Kenny Stills filling in the gaps.

New Orleans Saints WR Lance Moore (hand) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 10.
Huddle Up: Go ahead and bank on Moore missing a 3rd straight game Sunday when the Saints go marching into Foxborough.

New Orleans Saints WR Lance Moore (hand) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 3, and his availability for Week 5 is in major question. Moore didn't wear any protection on his injured right hand like he did last week, but he wants to be fully recovered before returning to action.
Huddle Up: Drew Brees is lighting it up once again, and the Who Dats are 4-0 with a comfortable lead atop the NFC South, but Moore has yet to cash in on the fun, missing Week 4 after catching only 4 passes for 44 yards and no scores in the first 3 games. Don't have him anywhere near your fantasy lineup until he shows some signs of fantasy life.

New Orleans Saints WR Lance Moore (hand) and RB Mark Ingram (toe) are inactive for the Week 4 game against the Miami Dolphins on Monday, Sept. 30.
Huddle Up: Moore is missing his first game of the season, while Ingram is sitting out for the 2nd straight week. The obvious beneficiaries are WR Kenny Stills and RBs Pierre Thomas and Khiry Robinson.

New Orleans Saints WR Lance Moore (hand) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 27.
Huddle Up: Moore has yet to practice this week but will get one more opportunity Saturday with the Saints not playing until Monday night in Week 4. Regardless, fantasy GMs are advised to go with another option as Moore has been deeply disappointing this season with only 4 catches for 44 yards on 11 targets so far.
