That leads us to this version of "Would You Rather?" -- Moore, Samuel, or even Funchess?
Everything wasn't so bad yesterday. I mean, we only got another career day from Cam Newton (started the game 14/14) and Christian McCaffrey ((125 yards rushing, 112 yards receiving) and another outstanding performance by DJ Moore (8 catches for 91 yards). #KeepPounding pic.twitter.com/OIb1nw3zDz— 1 (@TacosNSlurpees) November 26, 2018
Samuel hasn't had a ton of volume in catches, but he has found the end zone in each of the last two games and in three of the last four. Touchdowns are an incredibly-volatile stat, so it's tough to depend on that weekly. The Buccaneers, however, have allowed 17 touchdown receptions to the wide receiver position this season, second-most in the NFL.
It's highly unlikely that Funchess would have much of a role if he just returned to the practice field yesterday. He's having a decent season, with 41 catches on 68 targets for 516 receiving yards and three touchdowns in 10 games. Perhaps, the back issue that Funchess has been dealing with has lingered for a while, as he has failed to top 50 receiving in each of the last four games.
All in all, Moore is the guy we should be leaning on this week against the Bucs. His steady production over the last two games (15 catches on 17 targets for 248 receiving yards and a touchdown) make a trustworthy option to use in all formats.
