Darnell Mooney Signs With Falcons - Fantasy Impact

The Falcons aren’t wasting time in making some changes on offense, bringing in Kirk Cousins at QB, followed up with bringing in Mooney to work alongside receivers Drake London and Kyle Pitts.

Mooney hasn’t really kicked on from his 2021 season, where he had over 1,000 yards. That isn’t all down to Mooney’s play though. The Bears offense moved towards a rushing attack with the ability of Justin Fields on the ground.

Mooney has great speed, and should add a legitimate and reliable deep threat for the Falcons. There were better landing spots for Mooney where he would have finished with more targets, but Cousins is a solid QB to be throwing him the ball. Currently, I see him as a late-round selection who is going to have some weeks as a decent flex option, with upside if Pitts or London were to miss time.
