After enjoying a breakout sophomore campaign in 2020 that saw Garrett Wilson earn a 34% dominator rating - which considers the number of touchdowns and receiving yards a player commands within their offense - at 20 years old, the Ohio State product ran it back in impressive fashion in 2021.

The Buckeye scored 12 receiving touchdowns, compiled over 1,000 receiving yards and generated the FBS' 12th-highest passer rating when targeted (141.7).

He also proved to NFL teams that he was more than just a shifty slot receiver, averaging 3.00 yards per route run despite operating on the outside on 83% of his routes run, which nearly matched his same yards per route run average from 2020 when he spent most of his time inside.

And although Wilson's 2021 24% dominator rating was less than his sophomore campaign, that's really due to Ohio State's talent in the wide receiver room. He was competing for targets with senior Chris Olave and sophomore standout Jaxon Smith-Njigba, who led the nation in PFF receiving grade (91.7).

Going beyond the box score reveals that Wilson is a versatile route runner who can align anywhere on the field and still win.

He was selected by the New York Jets 10th overall and joins a somewhat crowded WR room. And nobody can be sure Zach Wilson can support one or multiple fantasy assets. There are definitely question marks.

However, Wilson is worth betting on because he's shown the ability at Ohio State to command targets and produce in an offense littered with other elite talents. Doesn't hurt his chance that he was deemed open on 84% of his targets last season.

Garrett Wilson signs rookie contract with Jets

The New York Jets announced Wednesday that they have signed one of their 2022 1st round picks, WR Garrett Wilson to a rookie contract.

Fantasy Impact

Wilson, who was the number one WR prospect for many draft experts, ended up being the 2nd WR drafted in last month’s NFL draft, going 10th overall to the Jets. Wilson has elite body control, can easily adjust to off-target passes, and has been a serious threat after the catch during his collegiate career. In his last college season, Wilson recorded 1,058 receiving yards and 12 TDs while competing for targets in a crowded Ohio State WR room. Wilson joins a young and exciting offense in New York that now has Breece Hall, Michael Carter, Elijah Moore, and Corey Davis. However, Wilson and the rest of the team's skill position players' fantasy value will largely be dependent on the growth of 2nd year QB Zach Wilson.
