Jahan Dotson

22-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR
2022 Fantasy Outlook
Dotson is the first-round rookie wideout most likely to be overlooked in fantasy drafts. That's partially because he was a second-rounder in most mock drafts, and partially because he landed in a Washington offense with Carson Wentz at quarterback and Terry McLaurin as the No. 1 receiver. The recent history of poor organizational management doesn't help, to say the least, and competition for targets could be tough this year if WR Curtis Samuel and TE Logan Thomas manage to get healthy and stay that way. On the other hand, Dotson is a strong prospect if you press pause on the noise around him, coming out of Penn State with 2,757 career receiving yards, including 2,066 (and 20 TDs) in 21 games in his final two seasons. That production — about 100 yards and a TD per game — puts him right in line with other first-round wideouts, as does his 4.43 40-yard dash from the 2022 Combine. Dotson's a bit on the thin side at 5-11, 182, but he has the speed and polish to push for No. 2 WR status in Washington early in the season. Read Past Outlooks

Establishing chemistry already

Dotson has been a standout at OTAs and is already establishing trust with quarterback Carson Wentz, Bijan Todd of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Dotson has consistently gotten open and become one of Wentz's favorite targets at OTAs, according to Ethan Cadeaux of NBC Sports. Granted, the Commanders are still only holding non-contact drills, but it's encouraging to see the rookie first-round pick making a solid first impression. Top wideout Terry McLaurin hasn't been participating in offseason activities due to dissatisfaction with his current deal, so Dotson will have plenty of opportunities to continue establishing a rapport with Wentz.
