Darden lands with the reigning Super Bowl Champions and he should be given some work right away in his rookie season. However, due to the depth chart above him, it's unlikely that he ever gets a significant enough opportunity for fantasy purposes. Darden has the talent to capitalize on an opportunity if he's given one, but we might have to wait until 2022 before we see Darden carve out a clear role for himself in this offense.

Jaelon Darden selected No. 129 by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Buccaneers have selected WR Jaelon Darden with the No. 129 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Impact

The Buccaneers have added even more depth to one of the deepest WR rooms in the NFL with the selection of Darden. Considering Tampa Bay already has Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Antonio Brown, Scotty Miller and Tyler Johnson the opportunities for Darden will likely be limited during his rookie season. Darden lacks size but does however have upside due to his blazing speed and ability to make plays downfield.
