Notes for Player Combination

Wolf of Roto Street
Roto Street Journal
6/22: Huge draft winner as the lone WR1. Velus Jones is intriguing but Mooney should see 150+ targets from an improved (hopefully) Fields5/2: BRUTAL 6 game suspension! But he'll be right back to a WR1 for the stretch, making him a very attractive target at his price right now. (Also... Falcons Week 17?!)
Derek Brown
FantasyPros
Darnell Mooney is poised to take another step forward this season. Last year his 1.72 yards per route run (40th, minimum 50 targets per PFF) won't blow you away, but the inherent volume he's walking into and Justin Fields taking another step forward will be the tide to help fantasy gamers raise "ships." Last season in the five games without Allen Robinson on the field, Mooney averaged 9.6 targets and 78.2 receiving yards per game. The yardage mark would have been the seventh-highest mark. Mooney's median is a low-end WR2 or high-end WR3, but if he garners more than 11 red-zone targets (38th) he received last year, he could vault even higher.DeAndre Hopkins wasn't completely washed last season, but his days as an elite alpha wide receiver could be over. Last season he was the WR21 in fantasy points per game as he logged his first season since 2017 outside the top 20 in targets per snap. Hopkins only commanded a 20.5% target share which was good for 35th among wideouts. While the suspension should ensure that Hopkins will return fully healthy, it's not a sure thing that we don't see his numbers decline further in 2022. He ranked 31st in yards per route run last season (minimum 50 targets, per PFF).
Andrew Erickson
FantasyPros
Darnell Mooney is already a star in the making. The third-year receiver looks primed to cement himself as the Chicago Bears' true No. 1 wide receiver. He already operated as the team's No. 1 for most of the 2021 season, ranking as the WR27 in half-point fantasy scoring through 17 weeks. Mooney also finished the last four weeks of the season ninth in target share (27%) and fifth in route participation (95%). With nobody worth much outside of third-year tight end Cole Kmet as legitimate competition, Mooney should build off his 8th-ranked 24% target share from last season. Byron Pringle, Equanimeous St. Brown and 25-year-old rookie Velus Jones Jr. should only encourage targeting the 24-year-old Mooney in 2022 drafts.DeAndre Hopkins is being suspended six games for violating the NFL's Performance Enhancing Drug policy. The alpha WR falls into the WR3/4 range for redraft purposes. He won't fall as much in best-ball based on the format, but it's hard to imagine drafting Hopkins over Marquise Brown with the six-game suspension baked in.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Mooney will be the top receiver in Chicago this year, which would put him in the WR3 conversation with upside if Justin Fields progresses in his second year.
