News: The Bears added depth to their defense with the signings of Kyle Moore and Andre Fluellen on Tuesday.
Analysis: While we once liked Moore as a long-term IDP prospect, we don't see a strong future for him or Fluellen in Fantasy play. Both guys will provide good depth for the Bears.
News: Buffalo promoted Josh Nesbitt from the practice squad and signed DL Kyle Moore to the 53-man roster on Tuesday. The Bills placed two players in injured reserve to clear space.
Analysis: Moore has spent the current season on Detroit's practice squad after being released by Tampa Bay in September. He appeared in 15 games with the Buccaneers over two seasons, including seven starts in 2010, before a shoulder issue landed him on injured reserve. Continue to ignore him in all Fantasy formats.
News: The Buccaneers cut three players on Friday. The players released were LB Tyrone McKenzie, DL Kyle Moore and DL John McCargo.
Analysis: Moore was not a player expected to get much playing time even if he did make the team. He should not be owned in any IDP format.
News: Buccaneers DE Kyle Moore, who has battled injuries throughout his career, was praised by coach Raheem Morris for his two sacks against the Chiefs on Friday. "You have to remember that (Moore) has been injured," Morris said. "Now, he's in there healthy." Moore does not have a sack in 15 career regular season games.
Analysis: Moore has not been able to play in more than eight games as a pro over his first two years, and he hasn't been able to get to the QB when he does play. The Bucs are hoping both issues change this season, though it will be tough for him to get consistent playing time with the depth on the defensive line. Moore is an intriguing option to keep an eye on, but he's not worth selecting in IDP Fantasy leagues at this time.
News: The Buccaneers placed DL Kyle Moore (shoulder) on injured reserve Tuesday.
Analysis: Moore was starting at DE for Tampa Bay, but rarely put up many Fantasy stats with just 18 tackles and no sacks in seven games. Continue to ignore him in IDP play.
News: Tampa Bay has listed the following players as inactive for Week 12 at Atlanta: QB Rudy Carpenter, WR Yamon Figurs, WR Terrence Nunn, WR Brian Clark, DT Dre Moore and DE Kyle Moore.
Analysis: None of these players warrant Fantasy use because of their limited or non-existent playing time. Keep them all on waivers and off of rosters for Week 12 and beyond.
News: Tampa Bay RB B.J. Askew is listed among the Bucs' inactives for Week 6 against Carolina. The rest of the inactives are as follows: QB Byron Leftwich (3rd QB), WR Yamon Figurs, LB Quincy Black, DL Dre Moore and DL Kyle Moore.
Analysis: Askew is not a relevant Fantasy player and can continue to be ignored in all formats. The rest of the players on this list are exactly the same. Leftwich could retain value at some point down the line but it is doubtful at this point.
News: The Buccaneers have announced the inactives for their Week 5 game at Philadelphia: DE Kyle Moore, QB Byron Leftwich, CB Corey Lynch, DL Dre Moore and RB Earnest Graham.
Analysis: Graham, the only Fantasy-viable player in this group, was questionable with a hamstring injury. Stash him in deeper leagues and ignore all the others.
News: Tampa Bay DL Kyle Moore (knee) has been ruled out of the team's Week 5 game at Philadelphia.
Analysis: Moore is not a relevant Fantasy player and can continue to be ignored in all Fantasy formats.
News: Tampa Bay QB Byron Leftwich has fallen far. He has gone from starter to 3rd QB and inactive for Week 4 at Washington. The Bucs also listed DB Marcus Hamilton, DL Dre Moore and DL Kyle Moore as incative for the game. Derrick Ward is also inactive.
Analysis: Leftwich could become a starter once again later this season but we really wouldn't care in Fantasy the way they've been playing. The rest of the guys listed above, save Ward, are not worth having on Fantasy rosters for Week 4.
News: Bucs DL Kyle Moore (knee) has been ruled out for Week 4 at Washington. He did not practice all week.
Analysis: Moore has yet to play this season. When healthy, he is just roster depth for Tampa Bay and has little to no Fantasy appeal.
News: Bucs DL Kyle Moore (knee) has been ruled out for Week 3 vs. N.Y. Giants. Moore will be inactive for a third straight game.
Analysis: Even when Moore is active, he is merely a backup defensive lineman and doesn't rack up enough stats to warrant use in Fantasy.
News: QB Josh Freeman, TE John Gilmore, WR Antonio Bryant, DL Dre Moore and DL Kyle Moore were listed as inactive for Week 2's game at Buffalo.
Analysis: Most of these players with the obvious exception of Bryant are reserves or special teamers for the Bucs when they are active. They have little to no Fantasy appeal. Keep all these players reserved for Week 2.
News: The Bucs have listed DB E.J. Biggers, LB Adam Hayward, TE John Gilmore, DL Kyle Moore, DL Maurice Evans and QB Josh Freeman (third QB) as inactive for Week 1 vs. Dallas.
Analysis: Most of these players are reserves or special teamers for the Bucs when they are active. They have little to no Fantasy appeal. About the only intriguing name is Freeman, but he is primarily owned in long-term keeper formats. Make sure to keep these players reserved for Week 1.
News: The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced Tuesday that they have signed DE Kyle Moore and CB E.J. Biggers to four-year contracts. Moore was selected in the fourth round (117th overall) of the 2009 NFL Draft out of the University of Southern California. In 2008, he was named an All-Pac 10 Conference honorable mention. Moore registered 9.5 tackles behind the line of scrimmage, including a career-high and team-leading five sacks last season. Biggers was selected in the seventh round (217th overall) of the 2009 NFL Draft out of Western Michigan. In 2008, he was named to the All-MAC second team. Biggers was a three-year starter in college and finished his career with seven interceptions and 134 total tackles.
Analysis: Leave Moore and Biggers alone in seasonal IDP leagues this season. They both are worth taking off the waiver wire if they start off playing well.
News: USC DE Kyle Moore was one of our favorite second-day prospects, and his landing in Tampa Bay should be a real good thing for him. Moore was a late bloomer for the Trojans, and while he has better size than speed for his position, he could be a situational DE that could be better against the run than the pass.
Analysis: He could find playing time this year, and as such is worth a late-round pick in the deepest of dynasty/keeper leagues and rookie-only drafts this summer.
