It is now the semifinals in most fantasy football leagues and with that, owners have to decide who they will play this week. If there is one player that is definitely on my list of playing to start, it would be Lance Moore. Moore will be at home for the New Orleans Saints against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who give up the most fantasy points to wide receivers.
Moore had a huge game already once this season against Tampa Bay when Jimmy Graham was out, and always seems to play better anyway at home in the Superdome. This game could easily be a shootout as well with the porous defenses on both sides of the field so I think Moore could easily finish with 5-7 catches for over 100 yards and a touchdown, which would definitely help fantasy owners who decide to roll with Moore in Week 15.
If you have Moore on your bench, here is your chance to get him into your starting lineup with the best possible matchup the rest of the way. It is that time of year where playing the matchups along with having your best players in the lineup no matter what is the most important thing out there. There aren’t going to be many better options than Moore and his connection with Drew Brees at home so scan the waiver wire if somehow Moore isn’t picked up in your league, and just get him into the starting lineup as soon as you possibly can before the semifinals begin.
