The Chicago Bears are likely going to be without Justin Fields this week as they take on the Las Vegas Raiders. It will have fantasy managers wondering what to do with D.J. Moore. Moore had been a must-start, especially after two monster games. He fell back to earth due to the quarterback issues against Minnesota.

Now, they are relying on a rookie UDFA making his first career start for Moore to produce. Should the fantasy football manager start D.J. Moore in week seven against the Las Vegas Raiders? We think you should.

3. D.J. Moore has performed with bad quarterbacks before

Yes, the whole point of drafting D.J. Moore this season was the possibility that he would be getting a quarterback upgrade for the first time in his career. However, the reason that was so often discussed was that he did not have a good quarterback for the entirety of his career.

The list of quarterbacks that Moore played with in Carolina include Sam Darnold, Baker Mayfield, Taylor Heinicke, Kyle Allen, Will Grier, Teddy Bridgewater, and P.J. Walker. That is an old Cam Newton on his last shoulder as well. Even when you add Justin Fields to this list, he may be the best quarterback Moore has played with, but you could argue Moore has yet to have good quarterback play. Even with Tyson Bagent, as rough as he may be, could he at least be as good as Kyle Allen or Will Grier? Allen started 13 games with D.J. Moore.

Despite that, Moore has averaged over 67 yards per game in his career and hit 1,000 yards in three of his first five seasons.

All that D.J. Moore knows is bad quarterback play and yet he continues to produce. It may take more than Tyson Bagent to hold him back.
