Rostering consistent players in fantasy football is vital to having any sort of success, but finding them in drafts isn't as easy as it sounds. Wide receiver D.J. Moore is a perfect example as to why consistency is key as he looks poised to put up WR2 numbers once again during the 2021 season.

Moore doesn't get nearly enough credit for the work he puts in on the football field. The fourth-year pro has now put together back-to-back 1,000-yard receiving seasons and is the clear-cut top option in the Carolina Panthers offense.

The 24-year-old is coming off a 2020 season in which he hauled in 66 of his 118 targets for 1,193 yards (18.1 average). His consistency shined the brightest, though. In fact, Moore was just one of three NFL WRs to finish with 93 or more receiving yards in eight separate games last year.

Moore heads into the fall with a new quarterback throwing his way in Sam Darnold. There's an argument to be made that Moore is the most talented WR Darnold has worked with in his career. It wouldn't be surprising to see the two thrive together.

The only thing that Moore hasn't seemed to conquer yet is getting into the end zone. He has posted just 4 touchdowns in each of the last two seasons. If he can figure out how to become a true red zone threat, Moore has the potential to battle for fringe WR1 status by the end of the season.

FantasyPros' average draft position data shows that Moore is being drafted at No. 52 overall and No. 22 amongst WRs in PPR leagues. He is a safe WR2 to target and comes with an intriguing upside that a number of players drafted around him do not seem to have.

Moore checks in at WR18 in The Duel's 2021 fantasy football rankings.
