Jahan Dotson impressed at Commanders’ minicamp

ESPN’s John Keim reports that Washington Commanders’ rookie WR Jahan Dotson has looked “sharp” in minicamp and that he “has been able to develop a solid connection with QB Carson Wentz.”

Fantasy Impact

Dotson, who was a 1st round pick in April’s NFL Draft, was viewed by draft experts as one of the most pro-ready WR prospects who should be able to contribute early in his career. Dotson has been labeled by draft experts as a polished route runner with an impressive catch radius and strong hands. ESPN’s John Keim cited Dotson’s ability to attack defenders' leverage and use it against them as a strength that has allowed him to separate from veteran CBs throughout minicamp. Dotson should see the field early and often in 2022, but if his teammate, WR Terry McClaurin, continues to hold out for a new contract or if he’s traded then Dotson could find himself in a position where he could be the team's number one WR as a rookie.

Jahan Dotson signs rookie contract with Commanders on Wednesday

The Washington Commanders have signed 1st round pick rookie WR Jahan Dotson to a rookie contract on Wednesday worth roughly $15.05 million.

Fantasy Impact

Dotson, who was selected with the 16th overall pick in last months draft, has officially signed his rookie contract to play with the Commanders on a 4-year deal. The rookie WR will likely line up as the teams WR2 or WR3 depending on how camp this summer goes as coach Ron Rivera has also stated that Curtis Samuel is looking fantastic. Dotson is a mid first round pick in dynasty rookie drafts and is roughly a 14th rounder in redraft leagues at the moment, though he may see that increase as the summer goes on.

Jahan Dotson selected No. 16 by Washington Commanders

The Washington Commanders have selected wide receiver Jahan Dotson with the No. 16 overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Impact

Washington has traded up for Penn State playmaker Jahan Dotson. Dotson can operate on all levels of the field but is at his best in the short and intermediate areas, making him the perfect complement to Terry McLaurin. Dotson has the type of skillset to lead the team in receptions as a rookie and should start to push for 100+ targets a year by his second season. Dotson should flirt with WR3 value once he starts seeing regular snaps for the Commanders.
