WR2 upside in PPR

College Stats:

2018: 60 Rec/ 750 Yards/ 3 TDs

2019: 77 Rec/ 1,042 Yards/ 6 TDs

2020: 40 Rec/ 478 Yards/ 7 TDs     ***Only 6 games played

NOTES:

  • A true slot WR
  • Lacks elite speed. Can get run down by safeties and CBs
  • Sits down in zones very well. Reads zone coverage great
  • No problem beating bracketed coverages in the slot
  • He can take snaps at RB and take handoffs, jet sweeps, etc.
  • Very aware and savvy in the scramble drills
  • In the ND game (2019) he won the initial route and looked back to see his QB struggling. CB caught up and he won a second time in the scramble drill making a beautiful over the shoulder grab and a nice toe-tap to boot. – Ignited team on sidelines
  • Good effort in blocks in the run game – uses good angles 
  • Good blocker in the screen game
  • Stretches the seam very well
  • He did play a little more outside in 2020 after Pittman left, but with his lack of elite speed, I still think the slot is the best fit for him
  • He returns punts
  • Great in RAC in the screen game
  • After the catch he turns into a scatback with an attitude

Value:

He is valued at about the WR10 range in rookie drafts. That’s about right where I have him. Maybe just inside the top 10 at WR. If he slips past 2.1 in 10 team leagues, I am pulling the trigger. Lack of elite speed is the only real knock on him. If he goes to a team that doesn’t have a need at slot WR, I’m out. If he goes to a good offense and is utilized correctly, he’s a steal in the second. He can become a top-end WR2 and will have very big booms.
