DJ Moore: Only current WR with consecutive 1100+ yard seasons?


Recommended Posts

I don't know where this idea came from. But, I've seen it parroted here by different posters for months now. 

Unless I am crazy, this is patently false.

7 Players w/ 1100+ yds both years

S Diggs - 1535 + 1130 = 2665

T Kelce - 1416 + 1229 = 2645

D Hopkins - 1407 + 1165 = 2572

A Robinson II - 1250 + 1147 = 2397

DJ Moore - 1175 + 1193 = 2368

D Waller - 1196 + 1145 = 2341

A Cooper - 1114 + 1189 = 2303

So, DJ Moore is a top 5 receiver over the past 2 years? 

Eh, not so much. Between injuries and Covid, many players didn't play a full 32 games the past 2 years. Edelmen opted out completely, though I'd imagine his stats would be pretty close to DJ's.

J Jones - 1394 + 773 = 2167 (in 24 games

M Thomas - 1725 + 438 = 2163 (in 23 games

D Adams - 1374 + 997 = 2371 (in 26games

And the guy picked side by side with DJ in the draft...

C Ridley - 1374 + 866 = 2240 (in 28 games

You could argue that availiblity is the most important ability.  But, outside of Julio, none of these guys have injury prone histories. And I don't think any rational person would argue that DJ>JJ at this point.  Yet, despite being hobbled by injuries, all 4 out performed Moore when they were on the field. 

Then you have young guys like Jefferson and Metcalf whose stats project out much better over time. They may not reach their ceilings, but they have already done more with their time in the league than DJ did.

All of this is to say,

1. Stop saying dumb poo that is demonstrably untrue. 

2. DJ Moore is not a top 5 receiver in the NFL. He is borderline top 10.

3. DJ is much closer to the Coopers/Allens/Locketts than he is to the Jones/Hopkins/Diggs of the world.

Is being top 10 now bad?

No, and that's the point. DJ is a very good reciever, but let's stop making him out to be something he is not.

I already know I’m catching hell for this but I think he’s one of the most overrated players on this roster 

I won't go that far. I just think, between Cam/Allen/Teddy haters, there's been an effort to make our weapons seem better than they were. Which is weird, because the were pretty effing good already.

I do wish we would've signed Samuel long term (for less than it will cost for DJ) and let Robbie and DJ fight for a contract this year a la Morgan/Witherspoon back in the day

The specific stat is...

DJ Moore is in fact the ONLY WR to post 1175 or more yards in both 2019 and 2020.  

I will admit I am too lazy to look up the exact number and just say 1100+.  But that stat and fact is true and was discussed at the end last season.

Only other player to pull it off was Kelce.   A TE.

1175 lol. Then posts moving.

Well that is the stat the major networks ran with and promoted.  

He was the only WR to post at least 1175 yards in each of the last two seasons.
