Q: Which one player Listed in 25% of Yahoo Consortiums or less Should fantasy directors be in hiding now and why?

Jahan Dotson (WR – WAS): 21% included in listings
“Jahan Dotson needs to be selected in all formats. In the first week of the season, Dotson played 100% of QB Carson WentzHe snaps and ran a course on 100% of his drop downs. In Week 2, Tied to No. 1 WR Terry McLaurin With 18 first team shots and 10 first team tracks. Then in the third week, he rested with the starters. He’s the captains’ lock-down No. 2 receiver, has NFL draft capital (No. 16 overall) and college production (2,084 yards, 21 touchdowns in 21 games in two final seasons) to be a future relevant to the immediate imagination.”
Matthew Friedman (fantasy)

Jahan Dotson. The Penn State rookie hit the ground running in training camp and pre-season, showing off his exceptional speed and hands, in line for an early share north of the 80%. Rookie wide receivers drafted in the first round are good fantasy bets Ja’Marr Chase had an ADP from last year’s WR31, according to Fantasy Football Calculator, Jaylen Waddle was WR42, and Amon-Ra St. Brown was WR64. In 2020, CeeDee Lamb was a WR39 and Justin Jefferson was a WR49 at some point. ADAP pre-season. Like these junior receivers, Dotson is ready to take on the humble ADP.”
Pat Fitzmaurice (fantasy)

Eno Benjamin (RB – ARI): 8% included in listings
“It was rather indecisive as to who is just in handcuffs James Conner – Although Eno Benjamin seems to have the greatest stand-alone value. I remember that Chase Edmonds She ranked fourth in the NFL in receptions among runners-up (four catches and five goals per game) last year before injuring his week seven ankle in a role that Benjamin could seize this season not to mention many of the Cardinals were dealing with injuries, including Zach Ertz And the Rondell Mor. And the Cardinals play Kansas City in Week 1, a defense that ranked fifth in catches, yards and goals for RBs in 2021. Benjamin has an actual road to uninjured fantasy production early in the first week and more fantasy points scored tied to a higher assignment for bids the following week. “
Andrew Erickson (fantasy)

KJ Osborn (WR – MIN): 11% included in listings
“If the new coach Kevin O’Connell Bringing a scheme of 11 heavy-duty personnel (three receiver groups) from his time with the rams, the KJ Osborn receiver could be an under-the-radar benefit. For the past two seasons as offensive coordinator, O’Connell oversaw the Rams’ offense which ranked 14th and 1st in 11 individual groups. In contrast, the Vikings ranked 32nd and 28th in the same time period. With Minnesota now turning into an offense that would power the third-receiver on the field much more, Osborne could theoretically be consistent with the kind of opportunity that the Rams’ initial WR3 presented last year, Van Jefferson, was last year (WR36 overall in last year’s PPR, averaging 9.9 points per game). “
Hermes (lateral)

Zee Jones (WR – JAC): 16% included in listings
Zay Jones is the perfect player to stock on your pre-season roster. It’s clear Christian Kirk He is the main man, but who is the second recipient? Reports from the camp praised Trevor Lawrence’s chemistry with Jones, and if Lawrence could turn back the clock to his college days, this passing attack could be fairytale gold. The Jaguars averaged 11 pass attempts per game last year and opened the 2022 against the Leaders, who allowed four pass yards per game. This may not be indicative of the 2022 season, but if Jones sees a strong target share, it could easily be relevant to the imagination. If not, I cut it off after the first week – but I think it would be the first. “
Ellis Johnson (True North Fantasy Football)

Braxton Piraeus (WR – NYJ): 3% included in the listings
“Braxton Piraeus. Before any season, fantasy directors want to own this surprisingly surprising candidate – the deep nugget. Berrios has an interesting career streak that’s hard to ignore and maybe that guy is. Going from 55 to 65 goals in the past two seasons might not sound impressive, but an eye test in pre-season has revealed what kind of plans Robert Saleh might put in place for him on the offense. If you are still not satisfied with one of your late choices or you are not satisfied with one of your late choices and Piraeus is still in the pond, get it now.”
Richard Savile (Fantasy Six Pack)

Jeff Wilson Jr (Right Back – SF): 10% is included in the listings
“Given what could be described as the ‘Kyle Shanahan disorder’ affecting the background in San Francisco, I love 49ers RB Jeff Wilson Jr. as a bunker. In 2021, the RB outbreak Elijah Mitchell He was permanently damaged and missed six matches. Wilson may not be close to the best player available in your league, but he has a clear path to touches in volume, can contribute to all three defeats and plays in an attack that wants to control the clock and run the ball. It’s one of the most widely overlooked handcuffs.”
Matt Delima (Sports Illustrated)

Joshua Palmer (WR – LAC): 21% included in listings
“Joshua Palmer has to be hidden by the owners. All reports indicate that Palmer will be a WR3 in prolific Charger swipe offense. So not only can he provide weekly flex value, but if Mike Williams or Keenan Allen gets injured, Palmer plays an important role in One of the best offenses in football.”
Dylan Liciardo (FF . players)
