Rashod Bateman
Wide ReceiverWR
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
Opts out for remainder of 2020
November 25, 2020
Bateman announced Wednesday via personal Twitter account that he will opt out for the remainder of 2020 and turn his focus toward preparing for the 2021 NFL Draft.
ANALYSIS
Bateman made a major impact in his abbreviated campaign for the Golden Gophers, racking up 36 receptions for 487 yards and a pair of touchdowns over five games. With the Gophers out of contention in the Big Ten West and this weekend's rivalry game versus Wisconsin getting cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns, Bateman will call it a career and look to prepare to train for the draft.
