Malik Nabers, emerging from a robust 3-year stint at LSU, led all college wide receivers with 86 receptions, 1,546 yards, and 14 touchdowns during his junior year, boasting a 34% dominator rating. Over his collegiate career, he totaled 186 receptions for 2,983 yards and 21 touchdowns, marked by a standout 28% career college dominator rating-third among 2024 draft class WRs. Notably, Nabers broke out as a freshman at 18, indicating significant potential for early professional success. Now with the New York Giants, he is poised to become the team's top receiver from the outset. His ability to generate yards after the catch (YAC) reassures concerns about the team's quarterback situation, enhancing his fantasy value.

It's not the LSU jersey. I swear. As soon as I turned on the film, I felt like I was watching Chase as a prospect all over again. Nabers plays with a special blend of power, twitch, and blinding speed. His imposing physical strength at 6'0" reminds me the most of Chase. Nabers can break tackles and churn out YAC. He can win versus zone as he has strong pacing in his routes and sits down in the soft spots. Nabers can also hand fight, get physical, and defeat press and man coverage. Last year, he was the second-highest graded wide receiver per PFF against man while also ranking 20th in yards per route run against the coverage type (min 25 man coverage targets). Nabers can go toe to toe with Marvin Harrison Jr. for the title of "THE best route runner" in this class. He weaves together a ton of high-end nuance in his routes, from dropping his head to sell a vertical push, varying the tempo in his routes, and the raw physical power of his hand fighting and at the catch point. He can snap off a double move in a heartbeat. Against Arkansas, he tossed the corner a double move, and when the defensive back didn't bite, Nabers just ran past him anyway with his blinding speed. Nabers snatches targets with arrogant hands away from his body. He's a beast at the catch point and adjusts easily to lowly thrown balls. Nabers had only a 5.3% drop rate in each of the past two seasons. Dynasty Outlook: There will be some small worries about Malik Nabers landing in New York, but I'm not worried about him at all. Nabers is a target hog and an immediate alpha in the NFL. We can talk about what his ceiling is with Daniel Jones under center in 2024, but I have no worries about his short and long-term dynasty value with this landing spot. Nabers should begin feasting on a bevy of targets immediately. There's no one else on this Giants roster that can draw targets at a strong rate. Last year, outside of Darren Waller, no receiver on the roster drew more than a 16.9% target share. While the volume he accrues in 2024 likely won't be the most efficient, Nabers should still see all the targets he can handle to produce solid WR2 numbers. Nabers should be gone inside the top three picks in every dynasty rookie draft.
