Fantasy Hype Grows Around St. Brown over Moore
On last week’s Tapping The Keg podcast, Mitch Ross brought up a great point. ‘Every year, Packers fans seem to latch themselves to a talented skill position player who got drafted late. Remember Malachi Dupre? He’s on Washington, not Green Bay.’ The same is happening with Equanimeous St. Brown. He’s the darling right now for Packers fans, and those who play in dynasty fantasy leagues are seeing St. Brown go much earlier than Packers fourth round draft pick J’Mon Moore. That’s a wild thought considering Moore was a fourth round draft pick. I like St. Brown too, but I agree with Mitch that proceeding with caution is a good thing.
In some early Dynasty League Rookie drafts was surprised to see Equanimeous St. Brown go ahead of J'Mon Moore. #Packers took Moore at 133, ESB at 207.

I get how the St. Brown hype happens for dynasty fantasy players. He’s a stud from body-type being 6’5 and having a sick catch radius. Pro Football Focus rated him along side with Moore at 66 before the draft. He’s played for Notre Dame meaning you probably watched St. Brown once or twice on NBC in the last couple of years. Moore playing at Missouri makes him an afterthought to the causal college football fans’ mind. Also, let’s not forget HBO did a whole story on the St. Brown family, so, there are a lot of factors in to how Brown has the hype right now.
Moore should be the one that’s on people’s radar. He shows a very similar skillset to Davante Adams, and if that’s the case, Packers could have another outside threat to compliment the Pro Bowler Adams. That’s a wonderful feeling, and it would not shock me if Moore is starting for Green Bay by the middle of the season.
