He went No. 6 overall in the draft, which means he'll get plenty of opportunity in the Dolphins offense. With Will Fuller on the roster, I'd imagine they're going to use Waddle in the slot, which is great for his projection. Tua Tagovailoa was having a tough time last year because his receivers were failing to generate separation, and that's something Waddle won't have an issue with in the slot, so he'll likely become the favorite of Tagovailoa. High target numbers will be hard to come by with Fuller and DeVante Parker on the roster, but Fuller is on just a one-year deal and may be gone in 2022, which would only increase Waddle's value.

Jaylen Waddle selected No. 6 by Miami Dolphins

The Miami Dolphins have selected wide receiver Jaylen Waddle with the No. 6 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Impact

The Miami Dolphins were determined to bring in an offensive playmaker and did just that by selecting Jaylen Waddle. Arguably the most complete wide receiver outside of Ja’Marr Chase, Waddle can contribute at every level of the field. Explosive with instant acceleration out of his breaks, Waddle has been on NFL Draft radar since his freshman season. Waddle will have to earn target share on a team with Will Fuller, Devante Parker, Preston Williams, and Mike Gesicki but should lead the team in slot snaps and push for the team lead in targets in the second half of the season.
