Injuries continue to pile up in 2020, with the latest coming to Carolina Panthers wide receiver D.J. Moore.

It's yet to be revealed how serious the injury Moore suffered in Week 12 is, but a non-contact leg injury is rarely good news. If he's forced to miss any time, Curtis Samuel and Robby Anderson will see big boosts to their fantasy football outlook.

Heading into Week 12, Moore was averaging a solid 7.3 targets per game in 2020, accounting for 22.3 percent of the team's total. That was second to Anderson (26.5 percent) and ahead of Samuel (16.2 percent; third). Moore also saw a team-high 9 targets before going down in Week 12.

The way Teddy Bridgewater has spread the ball among his top receiving options has limited their fantasy values some, although both Anderson and Moore have managed to eclipse 800 yards so far this season.

An injury to Moore should condense that volume a bit, giving both Samuel and Anderson higher floors on a weekly basis, while both will continue to offer big week-to-week upside.

Of course, this is all dependent on what the official diagnosis is for Moore's injury. Be sure to keep a close eye on the situation.
