23-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR
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.

Two catches in Sunday's loss
WRNew Orleans Saints
September 19, 2021
Callaway caught two of four targets for eight yards in Sunday's 26-7 loss to the Panthers.
ANALYSIS
Jameis Winston only completed 11 passes all afternoon in a truly terrible performance, but Callaway still led all Saints' wideouts in catches and targets. The second-year player still appears to be atop the depth chart for New Orleans, but between a blowout win in Week 1 and a complete no-show by the Saints' offense in Week 2, he hasn't had much of a chance to turn that role into real volume. Callaway faces a potentially tough matchup next week as well, on the road against the Patriots.
