ESPN Fantasy Projection: Statistically speaking, Claypool's first two NFL seasons were almost identical in every category with one major exception: touchdowns. He found the end zone on nine of 107 targets (8.4% TD rate) as a rookie, but scored on just two of 104 targets (1.9%) in 2021. The 2020 second-round pick's reception total, yardage, catch rate, off-target rate, yards per reception, yards per target and even his end zone targets (seven in 2020, eight in 2021) were about the same both seasons, but the scoring dip dropped him from 23rd to 37th in fantasy points at WR. Ben Roethlisberger's late-career falloff was an obvious culprit and, though the Steelers' QB situation remains shaky, Claypool is still on the rise at age 23 and has great size at 6-foot-4, 238 pounds. Especially with JuJu Smith-Schuster gone, Claypool is, at worst, a flex.
