2022 Outlook
Depth Chart
Commanders' rookie wide receiver Jahan Dotson turned in 91 catches, nearly 1,200 yards and 12 touchdowns as a senior at Penn State in 2021. He was well on his way to a 1,000-yard season as a Junior in 2020 but missed a few games and fell just short, so it's good to see that he was a productive player against high-level collegiate competition.

Dotson may not start the season as the WR2 on the Washington depth chart, but will likely ascend to that spot by mid-to-late season and could have some real fantasy potential down the stretch. He's more of a dynasty asset right now than he is a player to be investing significant draft capital in this season, but keep an eye on his playing time and make sure to add him if it starts to look like he's going to be an every-down starter for the Commanders.

Rookie wide receivers who are drafted in the later parts of fantasy drafts rarely exceed expectations by significant margins and it's even rarer for them to truly break out with a big fantasy season, but we've seen Dotson's teammate Terry McLaurin do it recently and Dotson's first round draft capital is significantly higher than McLaurin's third round draft capital.

It's probably best to let someone else select Dotson in your fantasy draft, then wait for the opportune time to pick him up off of waivers once they inevitably drop him. Competing with McLaurin for targets in a relatively low volume passing game to begin with isn't likely to lead to immediate results for Dotson in his rookie season.

Injury Jahan Dotson expected to miss a game or two
Suffered hamstring injury in Week 4

Commanders rookie WR Jahan Dotson is dealing with a hamstring injury and is expected to miss 1-2 weeks, per HC Ron Rivera. (PFF - Ari Meirov)

FFToday's Take: Dotson has shown a nose for the end zone thus far with four touchdowns on his first 12 NFL receptions. His absence could be just the thing that Terry McLaurin needs to get on track after a bit of a slow start to his season. It should also help matters that Washington faces the Tennessee Titans and Chicago Bears over the next two weeks.
