Jahan Dotson - Commanders WR

Hopes could not have been much higher for Jahan Dotson entering the season. The wide receiver looked like he could finally become the running mate opposite Terry McLaurin long-term after flashing as a rookie, but the 2023 campaign hasn't gone according to plan for the player or the Washington Commanders.

Whether it's the scheme or not is debatable. Dotson hasn't taken anything like a leap forward this season, struggling to become a prominent feature in Eric Bieniemy's pass-heavy system and struggling with drops earlier in the campaign.

It's far too soon to be giving up on Dotson just yet after just two seasons at the professional level. But with 44 receptions for 458 receiving yards and four touchdowns through 13 games, fans have every right to expect more.

The former first-round pick out of Penn State has everything one could look for in a productive NFL wideout. It just hasn't clicked for Dotson as yet, but a different set of ideas throughout the offseason might be enough for a potential bounce-back campaign in 2024.

Curtis Samuel is out of contract and Dyami Brown might be released under a new coaching regime. Dotson and McLaurin appear safe, but the Commanders will be adding to their pass-catching weapons as a matter of urgency to increase competition and raise standards.
