2021 Fantasy Outlook
An eight-catch, 75-yard performance Week 7 put Callaway on the map in fantasy circles in 2020. However, that outing turned out to be an outlier for the undrafted rookie, and Callaway ultimately finished his inaugural season with 21 catches on 27 targets for 213 yards and no scores. Moreover, his mark of 10.1 yards per catch isn't favorable for a player who is considered to be a one-trick pony as a deep threat. However, not only will the offseason departure of Emmanuel Sanders open snaps for Callaway, but New Orleans made almost no significant offseason additions at wide receiver and Michael Thomas is expected to miss at least the first month of the upcoming season as he recovers from ankle surgery. The Tennessee product has a chance to open the season in the starting lineup, and he could even stay there once Thomas gets back, depending on how he performs relative to Tre'Quan Smith and Deonte Harris.

Callaway caught 46 of 84 targets for 698 yards and six touchdowns over 17 games in 2021.
ANALYSIS
With Michael Thomas (ankle) on the shelf all season, Callaway consistently handled heavy snap counts for New Orleans both before and after Tre'Quan Smith made his season debut in Week 7. However, the 6-foot-2 receiver only ran a route on 53 percent of his snaps and he was only targeted on 19.5 percent of his routes - less than each of Deonte Harris, Alvin Kamara, Mark Ingram, Ty Montgomery and Adam Trautman. While Callaway still put together a couple of nice games this year, this underwhelming usage led to inconsistent stat lines that made him hard to trust in fantasy lineups. Unless the Saints get a dramatic upgrade at quarterback in the offseason, things could get worse for Callaway in 2022 with Thomas set to reprise his role as the team's undisputed top option at receiver.
