Skyy Moore to the Chiefs: Can Moore Take Advantage of the Stellar Landing Spot?
Skyy Moore had a draft position over/under of 35.5 on FanDuel Sportsbook. He ended up falling way past that -- going 54th overall -- but the landing spot couldn't have been better for his fantasy prospects as he went to the Kansas City Chiefs.
Moore was a production monster at Western Michigan. In his final season, he posted a 39.5% target share, which ranks in the 99th percentile, per PlayerProfiler. He also recorded a 90th-percentile college dominator rating. That final campaign resulted in a 94-catch, 1,283-yard season in which Moore scored 10 times.
Will Moore make a big impact right away in Kansas City?

Gdula's Take: One of my favorite receiver prospects in the class, Moore produced well when adjusting his production for opponents faced. His market share data is elite, which helps overcome the small frame (5'10", 195 pounds) concerns. He can play and should offer a floor for an NFL team.
Skyy Moore's 2022 Fantasy Football Projection
Gdula’s initial projections for Moore include 62 catches, 801 yards and 4.5 touchdowns, making him the PPR WR50 for the season.
While the landing spot is obviously a great one for Moore's longterm fantasy outlook, he might have a tough time making a big impact as a rookie due to the presence of Travis Kelce, JuJu Smith-Schuster, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Mecole Hardman.
On FanDuel Sportsbook, the Chiefs are listed at +950 to win the Super Bowl -- the third-best odds -- and +155 to win the AFC West, and they have a win total projection of 10.5.
