One of the biggest questions at the wide receiver position this offseason was whether the Bills would add major competition for Gabriel Davis. The answer is no. The Bills drafted Khalil Shakir in round five and added Jamison Crowder in free agency, but neither move threatens Davis’s ability to step into a WR2 role in the offense with one of the league’s best quarterbacks. He should see a rise in value.
Rashod Bateman will get the opportunity to be the WR1 in the Baltimore offense after Marquise Brown was traded to the Cardinals. The lack of production in his rookie season is a concern, as he ranked 70th in points per route run. Bateman was hurt during the season and played with backup Tyler Huntley, which should give him some cover for a weak start to his career. Now Bateman will be thrown into the WR1 role and should see a big uptick in value. His value has climbed up to WR24 range, which would be an easy cash-out opportunity for a 2023 1st-round rookie pick.
The trade of A.J. Brown leaves Robert Woods as the de facto WR1 in the Tennessee offense. Woods is returning from a torn ACL after changing teams, factors that typically do not combine well for fantasy success, but he should have a big opportunity for target volume. The Titans selected Treylon Burks, but he may need time to develop before taking a lead role in the offense.
