Jaylen Waddle Agrees To Three-Year Extension With Dolphins

Thursday, May 30, 10:17 AM

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle is signing a three-year contract extension worth up to $84.75 million that includes $76 million guaranteed, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The $28.25 million average salary ranks fourth among NFL wideouts, trailing only A.J. Brown, Amon-Ra St. Brown, and Tyreek Hill. Since entering the league as a first-round pick in 2021 out of Alabama, Waddle has hauled in 251 of his 361 targets for 3,385 yards and 18 touchdowns. He's caught at least 72 passes and racked up 1,000-plus yards in each of his first three campaigns. Although he is the clear No. 2 wide receiver in Miami behind Hill, he remains a strong fantasy football asset with WR1 upside in an explosive passing offense. Last season marked his first year without a WR1 finish, but he should bounce back after setting career lows on catches, yards, and touchdowns. He's a screaming value at his low-end WR2 price tag in early fantasy drafts.

Jahan Dotson Looks To Reclaim Playmaking Ability

Wednesday, July 3, 7:41 PM

Washington Commanders wide receiver Jahan Dotson has raised eyebrows this spring as he hopes to have a big bounce-back season. According to John Keim of ESPN the Penn State product has looked quite well against press coverage, which was an area he struggled in last season. Dotson caught seven scores in his rookie campaign in 2022 and gained 20 or more yards on 28.6% of his catchers. However, he experienced a significant sophomore slump where he caught only four touchdowns and gained 20 or more yards on a much lower 10.2% mark. In addition, his average air yards per target dropped from 14.35 in his first season to 9.25 last fall. Wide receivers coach Bobby Engram has also expressed the importance of improving his press releases, which will, in turn, get him downfield and provide him with more opportunities to make a big play. The 24-year-old currently sits with an ADP of 154.6 in standard leagues, but he could be a steal as the newly revamped Washington offense with Jayden Daniels at the helm can get Dotson's career back on track.
