2020 Fantasy Outlook
Bateman is primed to build off his explosive 2019 as the new No.1 option in Minnesota’s offense. Tyler Johnson and his 38 percent target share are gone, leaving some room for Bateman’s target volume to increase. Bateman also gets to benefit from quarterback Tanner Morgan entering his third year as the starter after breaking out in 2019 with 30 touchdowns and a 10.2 YPA. It will be tough for Bateman to build on his efficiency as his 12.4 YPT ranked second in the nation behind only Ja’Marr Chase last season, and he won’t have the benefit of Johnson keeping defenses honest on the other side of the formation. Still, Bateman is one of the most talented receivers in the nation and he’ll be difficult for opposing defenses to stop even if Minnesota is light on credible threats other than him in the passing game. Bateman projects to finish as a Top 10 receiver with a legitimate shot at being a Top 5 fantasy wideou Read Past Outlooks
Opting out of 2020 season
August 4, 2020
Bateman announced Tuesday via his personal Twitter account that he will opt out of the 2020 season, citing concerns about playing during the coronavirus pandemic.
ANALYSIS
Coming off a stellar sophomore season in which he compiled 60 receptions for 1,219 yards and 11 touchdowns, Bateman becomes the most significant name to drop out of the upcoming season. Bateman was expected to take on an even greater target share in 2020 with Tyler Johnson moving on to the NFL, but with both of their top receivers from last season out of the mix, the Golden Gophers are suddenly short on experienced pass catchers. Bateman will turn his focus to preparing for the 2021 NFL Draft, where he could be one of the top receivers off the board.
