Lance Moore caught two passes for 12 yards and one touchdown in the Steelers' Week 7 win over the Texans.
Moore saw just the two targets. His score came on a fake WR sweep-turned-reverse to Antonio Brown where Brown hit Moore in stride for the three-yard touchdown. Moore has touchdowns in back-to-back games, but isn't a fantasy option as the Steelers' No. 3 or 4 receiver. He's merely a role player. Oct 21 - 12:39 AM

Lance Moore caught 1-of-6 targets for a 26-yard touchdown in Pittsburgh's Week 6 loss to the Browns.

It was the first time all season Moore drew more than one look. Perhaps now he'll finally move ahead of Justin Brown on the depth chart, who has been brutal from the opening snap this season. Neither will come into fantasy value across the season's final three months.
Oct 12 - 6:16 PM

The Steelers believe Justin Brown is a better receiver than Lance Moore.

Some have been wondering why Moore, expected to play the Jerricho Cotchery role, has played just 28 snaps all season. The answer is simply that the Steelers prefer Brown, their 2013 sixth-rounder. Both players are far off the fantasy radar as No. 4/5 options for Big Ben.
Oct 9 - 9:37 AM

Lance Moore played one snap in Sunday night's Week 3 win at Carolina.

Moore missed the first two games due to a groin injury, so perhaps the Steelers were just easing him back in. Or maybe he's lost No. 3 duties to Justin Brown. Either way, no one can complain as the Steelers hung 37 points on one of the best defenses in the NFL.
Sep 22 - 8:24 AM

Lance Moore (groin) is probable for Week 3.

Moore will make his debut on Sunday night against the Panthers. He'll be the Steelers' No. 3 receiver behind Antonio Brown and Markus Wheaton.
Sep 19 - 8:40 PM

Lance Moore (groin) has resumed practicing in full.

Moore missed the first two games, leaving Justin Brown to act as the No. 3 receiver. The veteran should be fine to return as a fourth option behind Antonio Brown, Markus Wheaton and Heath Miller.
Sep 16 - 12:25 PM

Lance Moore (groin) has been ruled out for Thursday night's Week 2 game against the Ravens.

Moore will miss his second straight game and has yet to resume practicing. He'll have 10 days to get ready for Week 3.
Sep 10 - 4:11 PM

Lance Moore (groin) remains sidelined at Steelers practice.

Moore missed Week 1 and looks like a long shot to play Thursday against the Ravens on a short week. He'll then have ten days to get ready for Week 3.
Sep 9 - 8:26 PM

Lance Moore (groin) is listed as out for Week 1 against Cleveland.

Expect the Steelers to turn to Justin Brown at slot receiver, although they may just focus on two-tight end sets of Heath Miller and Matt Speath, with Markus Wheaton and Antonio Brown outside. The Steelers have provided no details on Moore's injury, but he was never on the radar in fantasy leagues.
Sep 5 - 3:06 PM

Lance Moore (groin) remained out of Steelers practice Thursday.

With Martavis Bryant (shoulder) also sidelined, the Steelers are looking like they'll be thin at wideout for Week 1. It could be a nice boost for Heath Miller.
Sep 4 - 3:51 PM

Lance Moore (groin) did not practice Wednesday.

Moore played in the Thursday's preseason finale, so this looks to be a minor injury. Justin Brown has been getting the majority of his slot reps. Moore could return to practice later this week.
Sep 3 - 4:05 PM

Lance Moore was inactive for Thursday night's third preseason game with an undisclosed injury.

ESPN's box score had Moore with one target, but he didn't play. Moore has caught just one ball for six yards in the preseason. Moore has had a quiet camp, to the point he hasn't even warranted a Rotoworld blurb since June. He's tentatively expected to open the season as Pittsburgh's slot receiver, between Antonio Brown and Markus Wheaton. But we wouldn't write that in stone.
Aug 21 - 11:13 PM

ESPN Steelers reporter Scott Brown says Lance Moore "stood out as much as any player" during offseason practices.

Moore has proven to a quick study in Todd Haley's scheme, which isn't surprising for a savvy eight-year veteran. We're still skeptical he'll be effective in replacing Jerricho Cotchery. The 5'9/182 Moore won't have the same red-zone impact as the 6'1/200 Cotchery, and had separation issues in his age-30 season in New Orleans. There's much more upside in a flier on likely starting "X" Markus Wheaton.
Jun 24 - 6:54 PM

Steelers signed WR Lance Moore to a two-year contract.

Moore, who turns 31 before the season, played behind rookie Kenny Stills in New Orleans last year, recording a 37-457-2 stat line across 13 appearances. He generally looked to be running out of gas, and was released by the Saints in early March. Moore had a few nice seasons with Drew Brees, but is a 5-foot-9, 182-pound possession receiver who won't cure Pittsburgh's red-zone woes. Moore is an uninspiring option to replace Jerricho Cotchery.
Mar 21 - 3:45 PM

Free agent Lance Moore's visit with the Steelers ended without a contract.

Moore is considered a fallback option for the Steelers if they can't retain free agent Jerricho Cotchery. Right now, Cotchery is reportedly leaning toward the Panthers.
