Hard to ignore the 100+ catches as a rookie and the strong bond formed with Tua Tagovailoa, but also hard to ignore Tyreek Hill reaching in for his slice of the pie

Jaylen Waddle looked primed to make the leap into the top-12 conversation after a stellar rookie season. Along with breaking Anquan Boldin's rookie reception record, Waddle commanded a 22% target share and 24% target rate per route run - 18th-best in the NFL.

But with the expensive addition of veteran Tyreek Hill, it is less likely that Waddle is the clear-cut No. 1 receiver in Miami. Hill is coming off a season where he commanded the league's seventh-highest target rate per route run (27%). The trade moves Waddle down from a fringe WR1 to mid-range fantasy WR2 after seeing almost zero target competition last season.

Waddle was terrific as a rookie with 133 targets, 99 receptions, 988 receiving yards, and 5 touchdowns in the fantasy season. He should be an upside WR2, but Tyreek Hill is going to cost him some targets, but also open up the short part of the field for him.
