Commanders HC Ron Rivera said Monday that WR Jahan Dotson's hamstring injury "might keep him out a week or 2." So expect the rookie to at least miss this Sunday's game vs. the Titans. We'll see about his Week 6 availability. WR Dyami Brown picked up Dotson's snaps after he exited Sunday's loss to the Cowboys.
Commanders WR Jahan Dotson led the team with 9 targets in Saturday's loss to the 49ers. He caught 6 of them for 76 yards and a TD. Dotson beat WR Terry McLaurin in targets a game after he tied McLaurin for the team lead. TE Logan Thomas followed Dotson in this one, catching 6 of 8 targets for 35 yards. WR Curtis Samuel added a 5-52-1 receiving line on 5 targets. McLaurin went 4-77-1 on 5 looks.
Commanders WR Jahan Dotson roped in 4 of 6 targets for 105 yards and a touchdown in a loss against the Giants on Sunday. Dotson is starting to heat up again after a hamstring injury derailed his rookie season in October. The former Penn State product has now seen 15 targets in the Commanders' last 2 contests. Veteran Terry McLaurin also had a solid outing, hauling all 6 of his targets for 70 yards. Curtis Samuel saw muted success by comparison, though 3 receptions for 44 yards is a respectable stat line. The Commanders WR corps will face off against a 49ers defense that presents a middle-of-the-pack matchup in terms of adjusted fantasy points per game in 2022. That said, QB Taylor Heinicke's ability to deliver the ball will be diminished by the strength of the 49ers' stout defensive front, relegating all Commanders WRs into flex consideration at best with McLaurin being the favorite. It would be best to look elsewhere for WR help in Week 16 outside of deep leagues.
Commanders WR Jahan Dotson saw his playing time rebound in his 2nd game back from a hamstring injury Sunday. He matched WR Terry McLaurin in running a route on 82% of Taylor Heinicke's dropbacks. WR Curtis Samuel trailed them by just 2 routes, returning the trio's playing time to where it was at the start of the year. McLaurin still led the team with 7 targets, catching 4 for 55 yards. Dotson and Samuel finished with just 2 targets and 1 catch apiece. Samuel, though, scored the team's only offensive TD on a 10-yard run. A Week 12 date with Atlanta presents upside for everyone on offense.
Commanders WR Jahan Dotson (hamstring) is not listed on the final Week 10 injury report after putting in full practices on Friday and Saturday. The rookie will play vs. the Eagles on Monday night for the 1st time since Week 4. Dotson scored 4 times through the season's first 4 games but averaged a middling 5.5 targets and 3.0 catches per game. We'd keep him on season-long benches against Philly's 4th-ranked WR defense.
Commanders WR Jahan Dotson (hamstring) got in a limited practice on Thursday. We'll see if the rookie can make it back for Monday night, but he wouldn't be a recommended fantasy play vs. the Eagles' 4th-ranked WR defense.
