2022 RTSports Outlook

The Commanders selected Dotson in the first round of this year's draft, finding another top starter to pair with Terry McLaurin. Dotson is expected to start from day one. He is an explosive player that does well at all levels. He can turn a short pass into a big play or just run past defenders to make a big play down the field. He is the complete package. He lacks a little strength to be an elite receiver at this stage of his career.

FANTASY OUTLOOK: Dotson is going to have some big showings his rookie season. He is a talented player that could be a fantasy factor for years to come. He probably is more of a reserve fantasy receiver as a rookie. Dotson can get around 65 receptions for 800 yards and six or so touchdowns.

Washington Commanders rookie wide receiverJahan Dotsonhas impressed coaches in camp. "Very precise route runner, excellent hands, very sharp, very smart young man, hard worker," Head Coach Ron Rivera recently told ESPN's, Jeremy Fowler. With wide receiver,Terry McLaurinprepared to hold out until he receives a new contract, the 16th overall pick and fifth WR off the board in the 2022 NFL Draft could be immediately thrust into the No. 1 role. While the ties to quarterbackCarson Wentzhave many in the fantasy community afraid of Washington pass catchers, Dotson is a polished prospect with arguably the best hands in his class. Dotson wrapped up his senior season at PSU with 91 receptions for 1182 yards (13.0 YPC) and 12 TDs while also featuring a 30% target share. His ADP as the number 55 to 60 WR off the board could be a steal in fantasy drafts this summer. Even if McLaurin should return, Dotson is likely the No. 2 option in the Commanders' offense.

Player Notes
Aug 9 12:30pm ET

Washington Commanders rookie wide receiver Jahan Dotson has been one of the cleanest performers in training camp, and not just among the rookies. He's been working with the first-team offense and is racking up repetitions when Curtis Samuel has missed sessions. The hype over the 5-foot-11 receiver's catch radius and reliable hands remains intact. However, it's possible that the media hype overstates Dotson's first-year production, since he's still yet to play in an NFL game. The 22-year-old will be a hot commodity in dynasty/keeper leagues, but those in single-year leagues should temper expectations, especially with quarterback Carson Wentz not really impressing leading up to his first season in D.C.

Washington Commanders wide receivers coach Drew Terrell said that he could not find any negative plays on rookie wide receiver Jahan Dotson's college game film. The 16th overall pick in the draft stood out in both organized team activities and mandatory minicamp due to his refined skills and renowned hands. "He's a smooth cat," Terrell said. "He's what we expected him to be thus far in terms of his being a route-runner, his ball skills, his demeanor, not flinching from the moment and being able to come out here and gain confidence every day and execute every day." Dotson has developed instant chemistry with quarterback Carson Wentz as well, but fantasy managers need to keep in mind this has all been without pads and with top wideout Terry McLaurin holding out. The first-rounder's stock is certainly rising, but he should still only be a late-round upside pick in standard-sized leagues.

Washington Commanders rookie wide receiver Jahan Dotson has been electric this offseason as one of the team's best offensive players, specifically his route-running and hands. "He's awesome," quarterback Wentz said. "He's a quiet kid, young kid, but he's a hard worker. He's smart, he's instinctual. He catches the football as natural as anybody I've been around, just how natural he plucks it out of the air." Dotson was one of Wentz's favorite targets during OTAs and minicamp, but remember that No. 1 receiver Terry McLaurin has been holding out as he seeks a long-term contract extension. The 22-year-old is certainly gaining steam in rookie-only dynasty/keeper leagues, and he might even be worth a flier as a WR5/6 in deeper single-year drafts.

Washington Commanders quarterback Carson Wentz has made it clear in offseason practices that he loves targeting rookie wide receiver Jahan Dotson. Dotson is consistently getting open for his quarterback during organized team activities and is developing some nice chemistry with Wentz early on. Fantasy managers should take this with a grain of salt, as teams aren't even in pads yet, but it's something to take note of as we get closer to training camp. The 22-year-old first-rounder should have a decent-sized role behind No. 1 wideout Terry McLaurin in his rookie season for the Commanders. McLaurin hasn't been taking part in offseason workouts either, so it has given Dotson more opportunities to build chemistry with Wentz.

The Washington Commanders signed first-round wide receiver Jahan Dotson to a four-year, fully guaranteed $15.05 million rookie deal on Wednesday. The deal comes with a fifth-year team option. Dotson was taken with the 16th overall pick of this year's draft and is expected to start opposite Terry McLaurin on the outside in D.C. immediately. The 22-year-old had 183 catches for 2,757 yards and 25 touchdowns in his collegiate career at Penn State. The 5-foot-11, 178-pounder could struggle with physical cornerbacks, but he has enough speed to create separation down the field for new quarterback Carson Wentz. Dotson won't be as attractive as some of the other rookie receivers in dynasty and redraft leagues, but mainly because Wentz has been so inconsistent.

The Washington Commanders selected Penn State wide receiver Jahan Dotson 16th overall in the NFL draft. According to Dotson, this was earlier than he and his draft prep team thought he would go. Speaking to the media after the selection, Dotson stated, "We were kind of thinking later first (or) early second." However, he also added, "I'm just happy that I got picked by the Washington Commanders and (I'm) ready to get to work." Dotson is a 5'11" speedster who racked up 1,182 yards and 12 touchdowns as a senior in 2021. He'll give the Commanders a much-needed play-making presence to complement No. 1 receiver Terry McLaurin.
