Fantasy Football Redraft Draft Kit

After enjoying a breakout sophomore campaign in 2020 that saw Garrett Wilson earn a 34% dominator rating — which considers the number of touchdowns and receiving yards a player commands within their offense — at 20 years old, the Ohio State product ran it back in impressive fashion in 2021.

The Buckeye scored 12 receiving touchdowns, compiled over 1,000 receiving yards, and generated the FBS’ 12th-highest passer rating when targeted (141.7).

He also proved to NFL teams that he was more than just a shifty slot receiver, averaging 3.00 yards per route run despite operating on the outside on 83% of his routes run, which nearly matched his same yards per route run average from 2020 when he spent most of his time inside.

And although Wilson’s 2021 24% dominator rating was less than his sophomore campaign, that’s really due to Ohio State’s talent in the wide receiver room. He was competing for targets with senior Chris Olave and sophomore standout Jaxon Smith-Njigba, who led the nation in PFF receiving grade (91.7).

Going beyond the box score reveals that Wilson is a versatile route runner who can align anywhere on the field and still win.

He was selected by the New York Jets 10th overall and joins a somewhat crowded WR room. And nobody can be sure Zach Wilson can support one or multiple fantasy assets. There are definitely question marks.

However, Wilson is worth betting on because he’s shown the ability at Ohio State to command targets and produce in an offense littered with other elite talents. It doesn’t hurt his chances that he was deemed open on 84% of his targets last season.
