Held in check Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-17

Dotson finished with three receptions on five targets for 22 yards in Sunday's 35-33 win over Denver.

Dotson turned in another lackluster fantasy line following last week's 40-yard output. The second-year receiver has yet to find the end zone after posting seven touchdowns in 12 games as a rookie last year. Dotson has maintained regular playing time during his slow start, seeing 12 targets through two games. The production should come so long as his role isn't reduced, so frustrated managers in deeper formats should remain patient with the 2022 first-round pick as the Commanders prepare to host the Bills next Sunday.

Five grabs against Cards

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-10

Dotson caught five of seven targets for 40 yards in Sunday's 20-16 win over the Cardinals.

The Commanders' passing game wasn't particularly productive on the afternoon, but Dotson tied Curtis Samuel for the team lead in receptions. The 2022 first-round pick showed a nose for the end zone as a rookie with seven TDs in 12 games, and if Patrick Surtain matches up with Terry McLaurin during a Week 2 clash, Dotson could add to that total against a Broncos secondary that got torched for two touchdowns by Jakobi Meyers in its season opener.

Leads starters with 76 yards

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-21

Dotson caught five of seven targets for 76 yards in Monday's preseason game against Baltimore.

Washington's first-team offense played the entire first half, putting up 17 points on four drives with QB Sam Howell throwing for 188 yards and two TDs. Dotson was the only player to see more than four targets in the half, and he accounted for 40 percent of Howell's yardage while doing his damage on short and intermediate throws. The 2022 first-round pick was more of a big-play threat than a volume guy as a rookie, though that changed somewhat over the final month of the season, portending a possible Year 2 breakout. The extended playing time Monday likely means Dotson will be held out of the final preseason game in preparation for a Week 1 home matchup with Arizona.

Finds end zone Friday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-12

Dotson caught both his targets for 30 yards and a touchdown in Friday's preseason win over the Browns.

Washington's starters on offense were on the field for three drives, and Dotson ended his night in style by hauling in a 26-yard TD strike from Sam Howell on the last one. The Penn State product could be headed for a breakout second season in the NFL, and Dotson has already demonstrated his nose for the end zone by catching four touchdowns in his first four games in 2022 before injuries derailed his rookie campaign.

Confident entering Year 2

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-07-28

Dotson told reporters Thursday that he has "all the confidence in the world" heading into his second NFL season.

The 2022 first-round pick is one off the stronger candidates for a second-year fantasy breakout, coming off a rookie season in which he scored seven touchdowns in 12 games and accrued 66 percent of his yardage and 57 percent of his targets over the final five weeks. Quarterback play remains a potential problem in Washington, but Dotson doesn't see it that way and has relayed optimism about QB Sam Howell multiple times this offseason. Full-on breakout or not, Dotson at least figures to see more volume than he did last year and appears locked in alongside Terry McLaurin as one of the top two options in the passing game under new offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy.

Solid numbers to wrap up season

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-01-08

Dotson caught three of four targets for 72 yards in Sunday's 26-6 win over the Cowboys.

Sam Howell was making his first career start at quarterback and attempted only 19 passes, but Dotson was still able to flash his big-play ability. The 2022 first-round pick completes his first NFL season with 35 catches on 61 targets for 523 yards and seven TDs, and while Dotson took a back seat to Terry McLaurin in 2022, the duo could be on more equal footing in the Washington passing game next year -- whether Howell, or a veteran import, is slinging balls their way.

Held to three catches

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-01-02

Dotson caught three of seven targets for 37 yards in Sunday's 24-10 loss to the Browns.

Dotson tied TE Logan Thomas for the team lead in targets but lost a three-game TD streak with QB Carson Wentz struggling badly in his return to the starting role. It remains to be seen if Wentz or Taylor Heinicke will start Week 18 against Dallas, with the latter seemingly a better option when it comes to fantasy value for Dotson and Terry McLaurin.
