Title: Puka Nacua’s Breakout Causes Fantasy Football Ranking Dilemma
In a surprising turn of events, Puka Nacua’s breakout as the Los Angeles Rams’ top wide receiver is causing a dilemma in fantasy football rankings. The dynamic playmaker has earned an impressive 38% target share and is quickly climbing the rankings for Week 3.
While some experts have ranked Nacua as the 14th wide receiver, they believe he may be underrated and could potentially be a WR2 even with the return of Cooper Kupp. With his exceptional performance and chemistry with quarterback Matthew Stafford, Nacua could easily crack the top five rankings.
Another wide receiver facing challenges is Ja’Marr Chase, whose performance has been affected by the struggles of quarterback Joe Burrow, particularly on deep throws. Burrow’s recent calf injury may prevent him from playing in Week 3, raising concerns about Chase’s performance. Nevertheless, due to his exceptional playmaking abilities, Chase is still ranked as a WR1.
On a positive note, Nico Collins has had a strong start to the season, racking up 13 catches for 226 yards and one touchdown. With a solid 22% target share, Collins has emerged as a viable option in the WR2/3 range with significant upside.
In contrast, Jahan Dotson’s breakout has not materialized as expected due to a lack of targets in Washington’s offense. Dotson’s targets per route run rate currently ranks 61st among wide receivers in 2022, limiting his fantasy football potential. It may be premature to consider Dotson as Washington’s best wide receiver over the talented Terry McLaurin.
As the fantasy football season progresses, it is clear that breakout performances, injuries, and quarterback struggles significantly impact player rankings. Nacua’s rise, Chase’s struggles, Collins’ emergence, and Dotson’s disappointment are just a few examples of the constant adjustments needed in the ever-changing world of fantasy football.
