Final Dynasty Rookie Report Card: Wide Receivers, Part Two

How did the final group of rookie wide receivers perform in their first campaigns?

Christian Watson

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.

Alec Pierce, WR IND

2022 Stats: 41 receptions, 593 yards, two touchdowns (78 targets)
Regular Season Rookie Report Card:
Week Five

After a strong start to his rookie season, catching 24 passes for 373 yards and one touchdown over a six-week stretch, Pierce appeared to hit a bit of a rookie wall. He caught only 17 passes for 220 yards and a score over his final nine contests. Nevertheless, he had stretches where he appeared to be a solid complementary receiver to Michael Pittman Jr despite the Colts’ trouble under center throughout the season.

Pierce was mostly effective as a rookie on short to intermediate routes such as crossers and out routes but made a reputation in college primarily as a deep threat. If new offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter, along with whoever their new quarterback is, use Pierce at all three levels in his sophomore season with any amount of consistency, he could realize his fringe WR2 upside as soon as this season.

Wan'Dale Robinson, WR NYG

2022 Stats: 23 receptions, 227 yards, one touchdown (31 targets)
Regular Season Rookie Report Card:
Week 11
