Patriots WR Moss struggling in recent weeks

If you’re one of those poor souls who started Patriots WR Randy Moss, you have to be looking at today’s gamecenter with some disgust.

Moss caught one pass for 16 yards and scored just one fantasy point in a win over Carolina. After the contest, some of the Panther defenders suggested that Moss had quit in the contest.

“We knew he was going to shut it down,” Panthers CB Chris Gamble told the Boston Globe. “That’s what we wanted to do him. That’s what we did. … He’d just give up a lot, Slow down, he’s not going deep, not trying to run a route. You can tell, his body language.”

Whether or not Gamble’s comments hold water, it’s hard to ignore Moss’ lack of success in recent games.

Since Week 11, Moss has averaged just seven fantasy points on NFL.com. Now I’m not telling you to bench Moss if you survived this one-point dud, but he’s obviously no longer a lock to post good numbers week in and week out.

One thing does appear certain now, though. WR Wes Welker is the best fantasy wideout in New England.
