Darnell Mooney News

  • Darnell Mooney leaves early · Nov 27, 2022

    Darnell Mooney left the game versus the Jets due to an ankle injury.

    Darnell Mooney had to be helped off the field and could not put any weight on his ankle. This does not look good for his availability against the Packers in Week 12. Currently ranked as the WR40 at DLF, the Tulane grad has been a bit of a disappointment in 2022. Other plans should be made for the next couple of weeks if you have options.

  • Darnell Mooney invisible · Sep 19, 2022

    Darnell Mooney had one catch for -4 yards in Chicago's loss to Green Bay Sunday night.

    A year after posting a 81/1,055/4 line, Mooney now has just two catches for four yards through two games, making him one of the bigger disappointments in fantasy football thus far. Mooney has unquestioned talent, but Justin Fields is struggling and the Bears are giving him next to no time to throw the football, killing the value of Mooney in the process. The lack of production could open a buy window for Mooney, but there's simply no guarantee this gets better any time soon. At this point, Mooney's ranking of WR38 seems a bit lofty.

  • Darnell Mooney plenty to prove · Jul 23, 2022

    Bears receiver Darnell Mooney has plenty to prove as the Bears unquestioned WR1

    Mooney has been zooming up ADP lists as it remains clear he'll be the top target for sophomore quarterback Justin Fields. How the Bears thought it made sense to not address the receiver position this off-season is anyone's guess, but there's no guessing Mooney's role and potential. That said, he has never been a WR1 and will now have to navigate double-teams in his intermediate and deep routes. Further making for a complex prediction model is that quarterback Justin Fields, while making strides to close out 2021, remains a developing prospect while the offense around him is expected to be among the league's worst. It's not a desirable combination for positive development or production in any of the skill position players. As for Mooney, he eclipsed 1,000 yards in 2021, his second season, and is an odds-on bet to do so again in 2022. The setup is in for the 24-year-old to have a career year but offensive consistency and performance will play large roles in ultimate production. Mooney is listed as DLF's WR36.

  • Darnell Mooney bulks up · Jul 15, 2022

    Bears receiver Darnell Mooney has reportedly bulked up to 183 lbs.

    In a good piece displaying the focus and commitment Mooney has to his craft, a focus on his diet and regimen has elevated his weight to 183, roughly ten pounds higher than his playing weight over his first two seasons. Now in his third year and fresh off his first 1,000-yard campaign, Mooney is clearly the WR1 on an offense devoid of noteworthy wide receivers, the last thing sophomore quarterback Justin Fields needs for his continued development. The targets should be impressive for Mooney once again in 2022 though defenses will be keying on him until Fields is able to establish another receiver. Now ten pounds heavier and in his age-25 season, DLF's WR36 continues to rise.

  • Darnell Mooney not satisfied · Jun 6, 2022

    Speaking from his youth football camp, Bears receiver Darnell Mooney says he's not satisfied and "I have a lot more in the tank that has been hidden."

    The third-year player has vaulted into the limelight following his first 1,000-yard campaign in 2021 and is now the team's top wideout. Mooney produced 1,055 yards and four touchdowns on 81 receptions in the midst of poor quarterback play but things are looking up in 2022, at least in the chemistry department with second-year quarterback Justin Fields. Plenty of questions remain about the Bears' poor receiver depth chart but Mooney's all-depth receiving skills should provide ample runway for continued production. Now in his age-25 season, DLF's WR38 is a borderline WR3 with tremendous upside.
