Tyler Scott Dynasty Fantasy Football Value


A Project

A high school RB and an early declare for the NFL Draft, Scott has just three seasons of experience at WR.

It shows up on film. He’s a raw route runner with inconsistent hands.


Traits = Upside

But Scott’s speed and explosion are obvious. He clocked a 4.44-second 40 time with a strong 1.51-second 10-yard split at the Combine. And he plays even faster than that.

Scott is dangerous on deep balls and a big-time weapon after the catch.

Considering his lack of experience at WR and that he’s only 21, he should have more room for improvement than your typical rookie receiver.


Tyler Scott Team Fit: Chicago Bears

Scott was a draft loser. He fell to the end of Round 4 and was the 17th WR off the board.

And he landed in one of the league's run-heaviest offenses. In fact, the 2022 Bears ranked dead last in both pass rate and pass attempts. We're projecting them to throw a bit more in QB Justin Fields' third season, but this team still figures to finish near the bottom of the league in pass volume.

It's a fairly crowded WR corps, too. Chicago acquired WR D.J. Moore via trade this offseason and returns WRs Darnell Mooney, Chase Claypool, and 2022 3rd-rounder Velus Jones. Scott probably needs multiple injuries in this group to have a shot at 2023 fantasy value.

Situations change quickly in the NFL, of course. Mooney and Claypool are both set to hit free agency next offseason. And if Fields doesn't take a significant step forward as a passer this year, the Bears might have a new QB -- and a pass-heavier offense -- in 2024.


Dynasty Valuation

Scott looks like a weaker dynasty bet now than he did before the draft. His skill set and developmental upside still make him worth rostering in most dynasty leagues, but he sits outside the top 10 of our rookie WR rankings and isn't worth considering until Round 3 of rookie drafts.

Our Dynasty Draft War Room assigns dynamic player values based on your league’s specific settings. These values range from 100 to 0, with 100 being the most valuable player in your league and 0 being the worst rostered player. Use these values to compare players at the same position and across positions for help with draft, trade and add/drop decisions.

Tyler Scott Stats

year games Targets Receptions rec. yards yards per rec. tds
2020 10 4 3 20 6.7 0
2021 14 45 30 520 17.3 5
2022 11 88 54 899 16.6 9

Scott was a standout RB at Norton High School in Ohio, racking up a ridiculous 2,849 rushing yards and 48 TDs over his final two seasons.

He was recruited as an “athlete” and tabbed a three-star prospect by most scouting services. Scott committed to Cincinnati over offers from Michigan State, Nebraska, and Iowa State, among others.


Scott Makes the Move to WR

Scott made the transition to WR as a freshman but played just 122 offensive snaps during that 2020 season. He totaled only four targets on 55 pass routes.


More Action as a Sophomore

Scott stepped into a much bigger role as a sophomore, ranking third among Cincinnati WRs in snap rate (50.2%) and second in route rate (59.7%). That WR corps was led by senior and eventual second-round pick Alec Pierce.

Scott finished second on the team in receiving yards and third in catches and receiving scores. His market shares:

  • 11.8% of the receptions
  • 15.4% of the receiving yards
  • 15.2% of the receiving TDs


Breakout Junior Season

Pierce’s departure paved the way for Scott to take over as Cincinnati’s No. 1 WR this past year.

Despite losing QB Desmond Ridder to the NFL and missing two games (one with a right ankle injury and another after opting out of the bowl game), Scott easily set career highs across the board.

And his market shares in his 11 games were big:

  • 24.2% of the receptions
  • 31.3% of the receiving yards
  • 42.9% of the receiving scores

Scott averaged a strong 2.49 yards per route run, good for 46th among 286 qualifying WRs in the country. But he ranked just 113th among those 286 in Pro Football Focus receiving grade.


Tyler Scott Highlights

Games watched: UCF (2021), Arkansas, Miami (Ohio), Indiana


Scott’s Athleticism Pops Off the Tape

I didn’t see a DB in the four games I watched capable of keeping up with Scott downfield.

Tyler Scott's deep speed will bolster his dynasty fantasy football value.

Scott caught just six of his 18 targets 20+ yards downfield last season. But I saw three deep balls missed by his QB in the Arkansas game alone.

Here’s one of them:

Tyler Scott's dynasty fantasy football value might be underrated because he dealt with bad QB play at Cincinnati last year.

Scott’s 2022 production could have been much bigger with better QB play.


RB Skills After the Catch

His athleticism also shows up after the catch. You can tell he’s a former RB.

Scott is a slippery runner with good vision and the speed to take any touch to the house. He averaged 6.5 yards after the catch per reception in 2021 and 6.6 last year.

Tyler Scott plays like a RB after the catch. That'll boost his dynasty fantasy football value.

Surprising Contested-Catch Ability

Despite going just 5’10 and 177 pounds, Scott played the ‘X’ receiver spot in Cincinnati’s offense, running more than 95% of his routes from outside the numbers over the past two seasons.

I was impressed by his catch radius and ability to make plays in traffic.

Tyler Scott has surprising contested-catch ability, which might lead to increased dynasty fantasy football value.
Tyler Scott is capable of climbing the ladder to snare passes -- good news for his dynasty fantasy football value.
Tyler Scott shows good concentration to make catches in tight coverage, boosting his potential dynasty fantasy football value.

Scott converted a respectable 11 of 20 contested opportunities last year, according to Pro Football Focus.


Where Can He Improve?

Scott is an inexperienced and unrefined route runner. He wasn’t asked to run a wide variety of routes at Cincinnati and didn’t consistently create as much separation as you’d expect from such an athletic receiver.

Scott’s hands could also use improvement. He dropped 10.2% of his catchable targets for his career, per Pro Football Focus, including an 11.3% drop rate this past season.
