Get Rondale Moore Now
By - Harveys_Gangbangers
Serious post serious post and then nuts on the goalposts
$100 it becomes a meme in this sub
Always thought a great TD celebration would be the Silence of the Lambs, Buffalo Bill dance. Nuts tucked and arms spread to the side. Yelling, “do you think I’m sexy?” “I’d fuck me!”
I spit my coffee when I read this lol
Anything for Precious
My league is full of Purdue alumni — he went in like the 12th. But I can affirm Rondale Moore is going to be the real deal this year
Purdue alumnus here. Took him off waivers last week for sentimental reasons after reading one random guy make a post on Reddit saying he could be good. Let’s see if it plays out.
I thought you said he went 12th LOL
I thought the same. Lol. I was like, "Damn, that's some hardcore pride right there."
This guy is right, and I know because in my big money league this guy was drafted, and these people seem to know their shit because they destroy me every year
I personally don’t love him and I’m thinking it could be more to do with Titans than anything.
He’s just too small imo, which makes a first year breakout lower.
Edit: Downvote me but last person to do it was TY. He could be an outlier but he also could not.
Cards homer, been hearing about him and watching [this](https://mobile.twitter.com/Cardschatter/status/1422954430211649542) kind of thing all preseason. Rondale locked and loaded. My body is ready.

Edit: [Found all 4 of Rondale’s catches](https://youtu.be/vZWqn_DdFOs)
Looks like Kyler Murray when he’s running lol
Fucking yes. I haven't seen any of his play so far. The Cardinals now have two ultra agile midgets on the field.
Also, nothing to see here: "Murray takes the low snap". It was barely under his head.
[Kyler throwing to Rondale Moore](https://i.imgur.com/DVnT24o.png)
@7:48 for anyone whose comp/phone didn't link them to the time stamp like mine didn't.
Look how cute and little he is. He reminds me of a Shetland pony.
His squat numbers are absolutely ridiculous for his size too. He's going to truck a linebacker at some point and it's going to be hilarious.
Lol that first play by Kyler was just absurd
Drafted him 1 pick ahead of Elijah Moore in my dynasty league and that whole month of Moore hype was so painful lol...
Do you think he's worth a spot in re-draft? My ultimate concern for him is that he's being used more as a gadget player and with all the pass catching options (Nuk, Kirk, Green, Edmonds) it just feels he won't get regular volume to do much even with the talent.
Man, wrong guy to ask, since I’ll probably hold onto him just for the excitement of watching him either way. I think with what he’s been able to do with his 4 touches so far warrant a wait and see if his role expands.
Dropped rondale for gage.... im sorry... i had to.
Rondale or Elijah, who do you like... Moore?
I have both. It's ok I have Dad jokes too.
I have both as well
Joke was so bad I didn't get any opinions
Since no one else said anything… I went Rondale
I'm playing against someone this week that has both... and DJ 😅
But actually wondering this
I can’t until tomorrow, he’s on waivers now
Right now dude! NOW!
Shut the fuck up and grab him already!
I just put in five claims for him…
Did you not hear him?
He said NOW!
Did you fucking get him already or what?
Not with that attitude!
Rondale Moore is so damn explosive. He jumps off the screen whenever you put on a game. He really stands out. I have him on a lot of teams but am pleasantly surprised by how immediately he is contributing. They are going to get the ball in his hands because he is a playmaker. Sometimes it’s as simple as getting talented players the ball and we should all want a piece of this offense.
For anyone that hasn’t seen his college highlights they are pretty incredible: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=1EACeAyqslI
Kind of unrelated but I think it’s such an awesome story.
For those that don’t know, that first play in this highlight reel was during the 2018 Purdue vs Ohio State “Tyler Trent” game. Tyler was a student at Purdue and was one of the team’s biggest fans. He unfortunately became diagnosed with cancer and it spread so bad that I believe it went into his spine. He became a skeleton of his former self but he was a fighter and still made it a point to support his Boilermakers. The football team even made him an honorary captain.
Tyler was given only a few weeks to a few months to live, and his dying wish was that Purdue would beat Ohio State, which was an absolutely offensively and defensively dominant #2 rated team at the time (Haskins, McLaurin, Dobbins, Parris Campbell, Okudah). Purdue was ranked nowhere near Ohio State.
That night, I watched the game live on TV and I was blown away by the explosiveness Purdue was showing. Purdue was playing their own game, you couldn’t stop them. Making legendary one handed catches, breaking tackles that shouldn’t be broken. I literally had tears in my eyes after learning about Tyler’s story that morning and 12 hours later I’m watching Purdue making this kid’s dream come true, running all over Ohio State like they’re a peewee team. It was like watching a live Disney story. Purdue would win in a dominant 49-20.
Rondale Moore was one of the catalysts for this game to make it magical. That play you see right there, where he’s pushing defenders out of the way twice his size, breaking tackles — that’s all talent, you can’t train that, and that play was one of the plays sparked the team to play their hardest for Tyler. Rondale Moore is unbelievable and a special player.
There’s a lot of great players in the NFL but there’s only a handful of guys that are truly special when they touch the ball, and they seem to energize their teammates around them. Rondale is one of these players.
Rest In peace, Tyler.

Damn that’s a fantastic story!! Gives me chills!
Damn, that's amazing. You just made me a Purdue fan.
Thanks for sharing. One of the best sports memories I have. I didn’t believe we were going to win until the 4th quarter. Boiler Up
It is really dusty in here, I'm not crying, I swear.
What a remarkable story. Holy hell. Thank you so much for sharing and no clue how I missed this at the time.
You’re welcome. It’s one of the best sports stories I’ve ever seen, and it happened in real time, and it kind of flew under the radar. It could almost be made into its own movie.
Worth a waiver or see if hes available in the morning?
Depends how competitive and deep your league is. He’s probably not one of the top 3 claims right now and some people are going to take Christian Kirk over him. There’s a chance you can get him in the morning.
He was an obvious hold away from being the number 2 waiver add of the week behind Mitchell most likely
This seems a bit hyperbolic as the argument could be made about many other waiver pickups. He’s a good stash for deeper leagues but I couldn’t start him with confidence yet.
Wait and see
Just watched the first 18 seconds and I don’t need to see moore (pun intended). IM FUCKING IN LETS DO THIS!!!
You won me at “*rub his nuts on the goalpost with every touch*”
Yep I'm out behind the local school rubbing my nuts against the goalpost as we speak
You're going to definitely get arrested for doing that
Shhh it's dark out
Just checked, someone already has him. My league is more legit than I was expecting 😬
Man I hate 16 man league. Literally everyone is already gone (including this guy…). About to burn all my FAAB to get Mitchell.
Rondale not even available in my 12 team league
I’ve been on the Rondale Moore train for a while now. He’s on my team. I was comparing him to Percy Harvin 2.0 but I’ll take Tyreek Lite.
Thinking of dropping Mooney for him. Basically the only player I can. I love Mooney, just don’t trust the bears/Dalton.
Only thing holding me back is the Rams were all over their pass game where he barely ran any deep routes.
Would you for Mooney?
Same boat, I’m sticking with mooney. Less uncertainty. At somepoint we know fields will be there
Fields isn't exactly a known entity though.
Can you drop anyone else?
Mooney was in for something like 90-100% of snaps vs. the Rams (don't recall if it was all...or nearly all snaps).
I'll start him in Dalton's revenge game next week. Red rifle locked and loaded for that one.
Would you drop Jakobi Myers for him? Full PPR
I have Meyers and I would not
I'd probably keep Meyers.
Hoping someone rage drops him so I can snag him.
Drop Waddle for Moore?
I'd keep Waddle.
Keep Moore on your radar and see what happens this week.
I did this but only because I have A Rob and know I’ll never start both
I drafted him round 15!
He’s 5’7”?! What’s his 40?
And he is strong as fuck.
Edit: [He squats 600](https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.si.com/nfl/cardinals/.amp/gm-report/rondale-moore-short-but-very-strong)
Rumor has it he fucks over 9000.
Not a rumor.
Legend has it*
4.3, 42 inch vertical, benches 25 reps. Physical freak.
7 days a week
Drop Sony Michel for Rondale?
Michel has higher league winning/workhorse with injury upside. Rondale more every week potential, but lot of mouths to feed. Depends what your team needs.
But Kirk looks good
Cards fan here, this is normal Kirk he will look good, disappear / get injured and won't be the same for the rest of the season.
Larry Fitzgerald the last 3 years had 109, 101, and 79 targets. Just a hunch, but it was probably Larry Fitzgerald’s presence that caused the volatility. A 36 year old already slow receiver getting 100 catches is utterly insane but bc it’s Larry no one could say anything
This. People don't realize that Kirk was playing out of position his entire career with the Cardinals bc Fitz was in the slot. He finally gets to play the position he is best suited for and he is going to be really good at it this season.
I think he gets a career high in tds and yards this season. He is definitely worthy of being rostered.
Crazy how far down I had to scroll to find the real info. Kirk had to play outside because Larry couldn’t at that point. There is [literally a clip](https://twitter.com/coopafiasco/status/1416171515767316483?s=21) of Kliff Kingsbury saying he’s moving into the slot before the season.
AJ Green played 95% of his snaps out wide. Kirk played double the snaps of Rondale Moore. Moore is basically Gabriel Davis - he comes into the game to be the 2nd slot in four WR sets which they run a lot of. Hard to move Moore ahead of Kirk after Kirk just had an amazing game.
The dude dominated in the slot at A&M.
He does, and I think there’s room for 3 WRs to get theirs in that offense (Hop, Kirk, Moore).
AJ wont just not play
AJ Green barely got any separation last year when I had him. He seemed to get some catches based on his experience in route running etc, but AZ might go with youth.
Yes, he will just not play. He is just not NFL caliber anymore.
Yeah Moore is not going to play outside and Kirk is more effective in the slot as well. So even if Green were to go away who goes outside and who is that good for?
Would you drop Marquez Callaway for Moore?
Good question. I have Jakobi Meyers, Marquez Callaway, and Terrace Marshall Jr. at the end of my bench and wasn’t even considering dropping Callaway.
I was leaning towards Terrace Marshall Jr. but he was third in targets (behind DJ Moore and CMC) and had some red zone looks.
Personally I think the Saints got up so quickly that we didn’t learn a lot from last weeks game.
This guy fantasy footballs.
Are we dropping Elijah Moore for rondale Moore?
It’s what I’m doing
I would. Elijah is also a good talent, but he’s in a worse situation in terms of offensive ceiling.
Should we drop Ruggs for R Moore?
I'm keeping Elijah over Rondale.
I believe DK Metcalf and AJ Brown. They said he's more talented than them at this stage of his career. It was one game.
He and Kirk are both available in a league I'm in and I'm struggling to decide between the two
I believe Rondale will continue to get more and more snaps as the year goes on.
Personally, I would definitely take Moore (had him before week 1). We essentially know what Kirk is, might as well take the chance on Moore.
Always felt like Kirk was capped by Fitz and with him being gone now he could be the go-to guy with a couple years of practice with Kyler. Really on the fence by think I want one. Probably going to drop Michael Carter but thinking about Zack Moss as well
Jakobi Meyers, Agholor, Beasley, Kirk, Sterling Shepard, Rooney and Moore are all on the wire and I can't decide. I'm leaning towards Beasley or Meyers but fuck so many to choose from.
I was thinking that too but he also has Jones for his QB..
This is a post for next year. Too much competition this year
And that's why no one will remember your name, KniefySp00ney.
You just did
Clearly you don't movie. Or football.
Or in dynasty. Where I can’t grab him bc the owner won’t budge :(
My drunk ass is putting a claim in for him now because of u so i hope you are right
Checking in, high and just put in waivers for him in all 3 legs, this guy won me over with the nuts on goalpost bit
Dont forget to add that this lil mfer can squat 600 pounds: [rondale](https://twitter.com/thecheckdown/status/1020453458854346752?s=21)
Thanks for convincing me to drop sermon and add Moore minutes before kickoff 💯
I hear you but somebody’s gonna have to explain to me how he leapfrogs Kirk as the #2. I want Kirk. Kirk has had Larry Fitzgerald in the way for 3 years I’m more likely to believe it’s time for HIS breakout
He’s already on my bench right now and I’m thinking of dropping for Eli Mitchell.
Who would you rather drop (.5ppr)
Juju , MJJ, Bryan Edwards, Michael Carter or Darnell a Mooney?
Drop Carter. You’d basically be replacing him with an RB who will at least produce for your team for a few weeks
I would drop Carter, Jets O-Line and crowded backfield are rough.
I thought Kirk is playing the slot role now. Last year, Kirk did well in slot and did bad on outside. I think his ceiling is capped by Kirk.
The both play in the slot but the Cards run 4 wide a lot. Only thing is a lot still only ended up being only 20 snaps for Moore. If Kirk were to take AJs place on the outside then I’d be all over Moore.
So I have DHop and Edmonds. Do I really want another piece of the Arizona offense? My potential droppables are Golladay and Sutton. Was thinking of dropping Golladay for Waddle instead of Moore.
Ninja-edit: Doubt I would drop Sutton at this point as well since Jeudy is out for a bit. So Golladay for Waddle instead of Moore maybe?
Kirk also played slot in college and is now finally playing slot for the first year in the NFL. Cards coach loves old men, AKA AJ Green, for some reason too. I agree Moore has potential but there are some big hurdles in the way.
I’ve got him on my bench and Kyler Murray is my QB in my big money league. My body is ready.
I’m in a deep league, I drafted him late. I’m flexing him this week.
John Daigle of “Rotoworld” is apparently high on Rondale Moore. So much so that Moore is his 2nd waiver priority (behind Mitchell of course) with a 15-20% suggested FAAB
I claimed Moore for free. (Mitchell went for $41 with the next highest bid at $38.)
Drop Russel Gage for him? Also can pick up Emmanuel Sanders for free atm. Obviously not planning on using any of these guys for awhile or emergency.
Which would you get on waiver Moore Callaway or Mooney
This is the confirmation bias i needed for my pickup. Huge game
Added, thank you
/u/Harveys_Gangbangers fucking nailed it dude. Had to come back and thank you for this. Snagged him last week for free in one league while paying $18 for him in another. Rondale 🚀🚀🚀
Thank you for your post!
What if someone dropped Marvin Jones Jr? I feel like I should prioritize that but Moore definitely has flashy appeal
Marvin for sure
Have him in two leagues, or worth the pickup in my 10 person league though. Here’s hoping you’re right!!
So do I pick up Moore or Kirk. I desperately need receivers, please help.
Kirk. Moore only played 29% of the snaps. Kirk played double that. Moore has some potential, but if you're desperate for WRs you need the guy playing now.
I've been on the Kirk Cameron train before... Give me Moore
I just dropped Pittman for Kirk over Moore. I think there is some truth to the Kirk back to his natural position talk.
Thoughts on his FAAB value?
I like his explosiveness, and it looks like he has great balance. Right now he’s mostly being used as a gadget player on screens and end arounds. Does anyone more knowledgeable on route running have input? If he can get decent enough to get some slants and the occasional deep ball that’s like 5-10 touches/game. If this a high powered offense then this could be 2016 Taylor Gabriel-esque. (Super fun to have) Plus being the kr/pr is just more boom potential.
Jacobi Meyers or Rondale Moore?
Meyers in PPR. Will get more consistent targets.
When I could put Curtis Samuel on the IR I decided to fill my empty bench slot with him before the game on Sunday for the hell of it. As a cards fan, I had a hunch. Now seeing that he was targeted in 1/3 of his routes and his potential to replace green I am extremely excited to stash him for a bit
I'm dropping jeudy for this playmaker
what if i drafted him
That’s what I’m sayin.
Ok will spend 50 FAB on Moore. Treat him like stonks!!! To the fucking moon we go
Just picked him up in 2/3 of my Leagues thanks for the heads up OP
How did you decide that a dude 6 inches shorter and 40 lbs lighter is going to step into the same role as Larry Fitz?
How did anyone decide some little guy on the Chiefs named Tyreek would be the most sought after WR in the league?
Drop Pittman for him?
Dynasty League. Add Rondale over Henry Ruggs?
Ruggs can be dropped, I'd keep Boyd though.
I got Kamara because of a post like this a few years back so I'm absolutely going to add Moore now
Should I drop AJ green to add Ronald Moore? This is just a busy WR core, but kyler is my MVP this year and he’s not even on my team
Watch the Cardinals highlights of game 1 on YouTube.
I'd definitely drop AJ Green.
He's going to be similar to Jefferson last year. In a few weeks people will be kicking themselves for not picking him up. He's a Tyreke clone on a high powered offense.
Would you drop Russell Gage for him? I thought I got a steal with the Falcons WR2 so late in the draft but that Falcons offense last week…woof
my choices at flex this week are javonte williams, russell gage, brandon aiyuk and rondale. FUCK IT rondales getting the start. kliff will get him the ball, he loves short fast recievers
#you see da future
name checks out
Drafted him in two leagues. He was electric at Purdue, and have had high hopes for his NFL career. AZ is a great landing place for him.
Hammer Down and Boiler Up!
Why I drafted in both leagues I am in.
Older thread but just dropped Raegor for him
Thank you based gangbanger
You guys remember Andy isabella?
Completely different players
Completelyyyyyyyyyy different lol. This guy definitely has never seen Rondale Moore play if he’s comparing him to Andy Isabella lol
Yes we do, I'm not sure if you do though since moore and isabella are completely different players.
Almost reminds me of the Andy Isabella hype train 😭
Was never on that train last year.
Also saying he's going to have the Larry Fitz role and be Tyreek lite is nonsensical.
Bout to drop AiYUK for him
Drop Pittman for R Moore?
I went back and forth on this one (because I have Pittman too).
Another thing to do...is pull up the Colts game highlights on YouTube and Cards Highlights and watch them.
See who you like better (who passes the eye test).
Or see who played. Moore played a whopping 20 snaps, is behind Kirk for a slot role and behind three other receivers in general. Even with four wide sets Murray is looking towards Hopkins and Kirk first.
Maybe we'll see further down the line but I'm not dropping Pittman for Moore in that scenario right now.
I kept Pittman too...and was able to get Moore with a few $$ faab.
I like Moore but more as a real life player, it’s hard to imagine someone his size commands significant targets but if he’s on your waiver he’s definitely worth a roster spot
If Rondale Moore is a FA in your league, I'd suggest you consider finding a more competitive league next season
He's available in nearly 80% of ESPN leagues.
Not necessarily. Some leagues /load up on high upside guys, others value big names, others value RB's.
Take what you get and adjust. Being in a league is just like being in a draft. You don't know how its going to go but you can make adjustments that can work in your favor.
rondale moore over julio jones?
Walk don't run
