Ladd McConkey Fantasy Football Outlook (2024)

By Derek Brown (FantasyPros), Fri, Jun 7th 2024, 10:02am EDT

McConkey could become the Bolts' WR1 in short order. McConkey has a clear path to volume this year, with only Joshua Palmer and Quentin Johnston pushing him weekly. Is the passing volume in a Greg Roman offense a concern? Absolutely, but that's why his ADP is this low. During Roman's final four seasons with Baltimore, his offenses averaged 496 passing attempts. If McConkey can earn at least a 21% target share, then we're talking 102 targets, which might not sound like much, but that would have been tied for 32nd among wide receivers last season. There's plenty of upside for McConkey to earn an even larger slice of the target pie in 2024, considering the other pass catchers that are running opposite him and his inherent talent level. Last year at Georgia, McConkey was in the 98th percentile in receiving grade and receiving grade versus single coverage. He was also in the 91st percentile or higher in separation percentage and YPRR. If the Bolts' throw even more than I'm projecting, McConkey could be one of the best values of the fantasy draft season.
