Dynasty Rookie Profile: Bo Melton (2022 Fantasy Football)

Dynasty Rookie Profile: Bo Melton (2022 Fantasy Football)

Bo Melton is a wide receiver from the University of Rutgers. The New Jersey native was voted first-team All-New Jersey twice while attending Cedar Creek High School. Coming out of high school, he was a four-star prospect with offers from prolific programs such as Penn State and Wisconsin. However, Melton chose to stay close to home, attending Rutgers, his parents’ alma mater.

Melton’s first two seasons at Rutgers (2017 and 2018) saw limited production, only playing in nine games total, with 32 catches and 327 receiving yards. In 2019, he became the team’s leading receiver, grabbing 30 catches for 427 and two touchdowns. He would remain the team-leading receiver over his final two seasons in 2020 and 2021, seeing 102 catches for 1,256 yards and nine touchdowns. He also added some backfield work, grabbing two rushing touchdowns in 2020.

Melton is a challenging prospect to evaluate due to the lack of passing production during his tenure at Rutgers. Through his five seasons on the team, only once did they surpass 2,000 passing yards (2021). Additionally, while consistently leading the team in receiving, he never exceeded 700 receiving yards in a season and only once had more than 50 receptions. Melton was also a victim of inefficient QB play, with a team-average completion percentage of 54.9 percent in those five seasons.
