Is TE Thaddeus Moss a sleeper?
Thaddeus Moss is One name you FantasyHolics may want to keep in the back of your mind and a close eye on during your league drafts.
The last day of the 2020 draft ... the Cincinnati Bengals had already selected Joe Burrow and we’re watching and waiting till that final player is selected... After the draft was complete the Bengals put in a waiver claim on Moss but it was too late the Washington Football Team had beat them to it... Fast forward to April 2021 after weeks of debate Washington decided to cut ties with Moss after he was unable to play the 2020 season due to an injury that was the reason that kept him from being drafted in the first place.
6’3 250 pounds Mosses last year in college and playing under Joe Burrow as QB... He ended the season with 570 yards and 4 touchdowns.. and was a big part and reason why Joe Burrow and the LSU Tigers won the National championship. I feel the two will take off where they left off at LSU, I look for Moss to be a safety blanket for Burrow. With his great hands and good body control Moss excels when it comes to running routes and off coverage to find plenty of open window catches.
The thing that I think will benefit Cincinnati the most is his run blocking.Using above-average technique and an impressive ability to strain and sustain against bigger opponents. with an offensive line that struggled his skill set will fit in well with Cincinnati and it helps that there is already a connection with the star QB!
Keep Moss on your bench. I look for him to be on the field a lot for his run blocking skills and he will quietly pick you up, I say 600 to 700 yards and 6 touchdowns this season!
