Schein sees Bears WR DJ Moore as a 'guaranteed riser'

New Bears receiver DJ Moore caught 63 passes for 888 yards and seven touchdowns last season with the Carolina Panthers.’s Adam Schein believes that Moore will be even more productive in his first season in Chicago, ranking the receiver sixth on a list of NFL players guaranteed to improve on their 2022 output.

"Let's get one thing straight right off the bat: Moore wasn't the problem in Carolina," Schein wrote. "Moore valiantly eclipsed 1,000 receiving yards in three separate seasons. His talent was evident to anyone who watched Carolina. Now in Chicago, he's poised to make a name for himself on the national scene.

"Acquired by the Bears as part of the trade that gave the Panthers the No. 1 overall pick in April's draft, Moore gives Chicago exactly what it needed to foster Justin Fields' growth as a passer: a legit WR1. Still just 26 years old entering Year 6, Moore is set to blow past last year's production. Put him down for at least 1,200 yards and 10 scores, both of which would be career bests."
