Final Dynasty Rookie Report Card: Wide Receivers, Part One

Chris Olave

Throughout the season, the Rookie Report Card has covered some of the biggest rookies and not only looked at their performance to date – but also their long-term upside. Now that the regular season has wrapped up and dynasty managers are looking towards the future, we have an opportunity to take one last look at the 2022 season and assess the rookies. A final report card if you will.

We covered 38 rookies throughout the season, including 16 wide receivers. Let’s put a bow on the season by taking one more look at each of these pass catchers’ first year playing on Sundays, as well as a quick glimpse into their futures in part one of the Final Rookie Report Card: Wide Receivers.

Treylon Burks, WR TEN

2022 Stats: 33 receptions, 444 yards, one touchdown (54 targets)
Regular Season Rookie Report Card:
Week 11

After an up-and-down rookie season that featured multiple injuries and just enough dazzling plays to prove the upside he entered the league with is legitimate, Burks left dynasty managers thirsty for more.

Although he only had two weekly fantasy finishes inside the top 40 at the position, Burks made contested grabs and running after the catch look effortless at times and even showed he could get vertical. He appears like a perfect fit for Tennessee’s play-action passing game, but needs to stay healthy to reach his potential.

Lining up all over the formation and used in so many different ways, Burks is oozing with fringe WR1 fantasy upside. Hopefully the Titans will unlock his ceiling by using him on bubble screens in the quick game, on dig routes off of play-action, and even as a deep threat at times. A dynamic playmaker, his role should grow exponentially in his sophomore campaign.

Jahan Dotson, WR WAS

2022 Stats: 35 receptions, 523 yards, seven touchdowns (61 targets)
Regular Season Rookie Report Card:
Week One

It’s funny on Olave. He looks very good, but I think he entered the NFL at his peak level. Which seems more DJ Moore like than Stephan Diggs like.
I don’t think that’s a very popular statement. Just the eye test from watching him all year.
I would say your comments on him Dan could be overlayed to Moore’s career so far. They look like (eye test) the same player to me. With the same challenges around them.

Love what you’re saying. I don’t agree but I think different opinions on these players helps the discussion.
Where do you stand on G. Wilson? I almost feel like you have to buy him at such a premium that he almost has to catch 15TDs!
