News: 36 minutes agoDotson brought in two of four targets for 21 yards in the Commanders' 37-3 loss to the Bills on Sunday.
Spin: Dotson was largely held in check by an aggressive Bills defense that made the Commanders' air attack a check-down fest for the most part by pressuring Sam Howell relentlessly. Dotson has disappointingly seen his receiving yardage total drop in each of the last two weeks, and he'll have another tough matchup on his hands in a Week 4 road battle versus the Eagles.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Dotson is entering his second NFL season following an impressive, but fairly unheralded rookie campaign. The 2022 first-round pick missed five games due to injury but finished the year strong. He handled a target share of at least 21% in each of the team's final five games, which produced a 21-344-3 receiving line and 14.7 fantasy PPG (17th among WRs). And that came with Terry McLaurin averaging 15.5 PPG (13th-best) during the same span. Dotson's WR-high 11.3% TD rate isn't sustainable and his vertical role (14.4 aDOT ranked fourth) may lead to volatile production, but he's a good bet for a boost in volume in Year 2. He's a breakout candidate who you should be on your radar in the middle rounds.
