As we enter Week 6 of the NFL season, plenty of people start to look around at what players could be traded.
The Carolina Panthers seem to be one team willing to make moves.
Also, there are players around the league that just need a change of scenery.
There are plenty of very good players that are not being utilized.
Without further ado, here are three NFL players that need to change teams.
D.J. Moore, Carolina Panthers
If Carolina is going to start selling its roster, Moore is a player that every team will be interested in.
He is only 25 years old and has three straight 1,100+ yard seasons under his belt.
It is borderline malpractice how the Panthers are using Moore.
He has not been involved much in the passing offense and Baker Mayfield has struggled to get him the ball.
D.J. Moore ranks 67th-of-73 WRs in catchable targets (62.1%) among receivers with at least 15 targets
However, Moore’s average depth of target (7.4 yards) is much lower than the 6 WRs with worse catchable target rates
He’s dealt with the worst QB play of any starting WR so far

Some teams that should be interested in Moore are the Green Bay Packers, Dallas Cowboys, and New York Giants to name a few.
It is rare for a wide receiver like Moore to be available for trade.
But, with the Panthers getting ready for a massive rebuild, Moore needs a change of scenery.
Kareem Hunt, Cleveland Browns
The Cleveland Browns have one of the best rushing teams in the NFL.
One big reason for that is the play of starting running back, Nick Chubb.
Chubb leads the NFL in rushing through five weeks and has shown no sign of slowing down.
That is where the Kareem Hunt problem comes in.
Hunt is a very good player, but he will not unseat Chubb as the starter.
So it would be best for him to go to a new team.
Hunt is good enough to start on a lot of teams in the NFL, he just needs the chance to show it.
The Denver Broncos are the first team that comes to mind who needs a running back.
They just lost Javonte Williams for the season and Hunt can fill that role in their offense.
Hunt is a free agent at year’s end, so the Browns would be smart to move him now if they do not plan to re-sign him.
Darnell Mooney, Chicago Bears
Playing in an offense that does not throw the ball can not be fun for Mooney.
The Bears are by far the worst passing offense in the NFL and Mooney has suffered from it.
The 24-year-old wide receiver is coming off a season in which he recorded 81 receptions for 1,055 yards and four touchdowns.
Mooney is a very good player that just needs a chance to get the ball.

Chicago seems to be a run-only team on offense and that seems to be an indictment of Justin Fields.
The young QB has struggled to accurately throw the ball this season.
The Bears could look to move Mooney because they are in a rebuild.
With a record of 2-3, the Bears are headed for a top-10 pick.
Plus, the Bears rarely pay big money for wide receivers.
They let Allen Robinson walk this past offseason and they will most likely do the same with Mooney.
Mooney is too good of a player to be wasted in this offense.
Making him one player in desperate need of a team change.
