Factoid: Rookie receivers

The rookie receivers didn’t light up the boxscores in the preseason, but that’s OK. That’s just how it goes nowadays. And if form holds, probably a couple of these first-year receivers are going to be very good.  more »

Factoid: Treylon Burks

What can be expected from Treylon Burks (and other first-round rookie wideouts)? Six were selected in the top 20 picks back in April, and most joined teams where there's the potential to be early starters. Actually putting up strong numbers right away in fantasy leagues, though, is a hit-or-miss kind of deal.   more »

Atlanta Falcons rookie wide receiver DRAKE LONDON has been sidelined by a knee injury for a couple of weeks while fantasy owners monitor his status for the season opener against theMore New Orleans Saints on September 11th. Head coach Arthur Smith said this week that he was not going to make a prediction about London’s status for Week #1, but he did say that he feels “good about where he’s at” when talking about his rookie wideout.

Dynasty Leagues: First-round wideouts

Rookie drafts are occurring in some dynasty leagues this month (if they haven't already happened), and I expect the first round will be wide receiver-heavy in most of them. That was the case in the actual NFL Draft, with four selected in the top 12 picks. I wondered how often those early selection pan out in the NFL -- what are the odds of them busting?   more »

Factoid: Wide receivers on bad teams

In yesterday's post about rookie receivers, reader Robert McKinlay mentioned being cool on Drake London with him perhaps laboring on one of the league's worst teams this season. This interested me: does a bad team necessarily have lousy wide receivers?   more »

Factoid: Rookie receivers

I’m not super excited about the receivers who were selected early. They all come with various flaws. That said, the tendency recently has been for the early-pick receivers to get involved sooner rather than later. Gone, it seems, are the days of guys needing a few years to develop.  more »

Falcons select first WR of 2022 NFL Draft

The Atlanta Falcons used the eighth overall pick in last night’s NFL Draft to select the first wide receiver of the evening in USC wideout DRAKE LONDON. London will pair withMore last year’s fourth overall choice, tight end KYLE PITTS, and provide another weapon for veteran quarterback MARCUS MARIOTA. The Falcons needed a top wide receiver after losing CALVIN RIDLEY to a suspension for the entire 2022 season. Less

Factoid: Rookie receivers

It’s a weird year for wide receivers. There’s plenty of talent, with perhaps a record number being selected in the first three rounds, but there’s no clear No. 1 prospect. In my eyes, there’s no receiver who looks like a lock to be one of the first two selected at the position.   more »
