Darius Slayton is worth considering at the end of your drafts this season. Last season's WR55 finish isn't glamorous, but Slayton did log seven weeks with WR3 or better production after becoming a staple in the offense (Weeks 5-18). Slayton's lack of a red zone role (only three targets inside the 20) severely hurt his weekly floor and ceiling, but he has the talent to outkick expectations if he can sniff some touchdown regression (only two touchdowns in 2022). Slayton ranked 18th in open rate (per ESPN analytics) and 29th in yards per route run (minimum 50 targets per PFF) last season.

5/5: Lots more target competition here, but Slayton & Hodgins might be the most locked-in for targets as the "Outside WRs"

3/19: Love that he's back w/ NYG & on a decent-sized contract (2 year, $6M) -- more than Campbell got.
