Woods leaving opens up WR3 role, but likely will struggle for meaningful role w/ Allen Robinson here6/14: Slow recovery timeline, but so damn explosive whenever he does emerge
Derek Brown
FantasyPros
Last season, Van Jefferson showed some life, finishing with a career-high 802 receiving yards and six scores as the WR41 in fantasy points per game. Jefferson should reprise his field-stretching role for the Rams this year on the outside opposite Allen Robinson. Last year Jefferson was 11th in aDOT, but with a route win rate ranked 91st, his ceiling games will be scattered despite Matthew Stafford's proclivity for going deep.Jameson Williams' early-season status is still up in the air, but one thing that's for certain is that once he hits the NFL field, he's a big play waiting to happen. Williams' electrifying speed helped him finish 13th in yards per route run (minimum 50 targets, per PFF) with the fifth-most deep receiving yards in the nation last year. Outside of his health, Williams' biggest obstacle to a monster rookie season is Jared Goff, who was ninth in catchable pass rate but sadly 24th in deep accuracy.
Andrew Erickson
FantasyPros
Van Jefferson Jr. didn't necessarily take off during his second season, but he earned the trust of the coaching staff to earn a near every-down role - unhead at the position for a No. 3 wide receiver. Jefferson finished 20th in route participation (86%) and should maintain that high-end usage heading into the 2022 season. In that role last season, Jefferson finished as WR35 overall on the season and outside the top 40 in points per game. The Rams vertical threat is the rare WR handcuff that would see his production spike should an injury occur to either Cooper Kupp or Allen Robinson.Williams may not hit the field until October, making him a tough guy to stash in redraft formats. Furthermore, Williams' vertical ability cannot be capitalized with Jared Goff under center. Goff's average depth of throw has decreased over the last four seasons, with his most recent 2021 mark (6.8) ranking dead last among 38th qualifying quarterbacks. He has also averaged just 13 completions of 20-plus air yards the last two seasons. Williams finished top-seven among all college wide receivers in receiving yards on 20-plus air yard throws in 2021. However, Williams does also possess top-tier YAC-ability so he should be able to salvage some production when he returns from injury. And although Goff's lack of deep game isn't ideal, we have seen him fuel top fantasy WR seasons before in Los Angeles and Detroit. Most recently with Amon-Ra St. Brown, who was the fantasy WR3 to close out last season. Williams commanded a 31% dominator rating last season by hanging 1,561 receiving yards, 20 yards per reception and 15 touchdowns - all achievements that ranked top-three among his 2022 NFL Draft class. Nobody will be shocked to see Williams out-produce the combination of St. Brown and T.J. Hockenson once he is fully acclimated into the offense.
