Dyami Brown - Commanders WR

Generating targets within the Washington Commanders' wide receiver room is a difficult proposition. The team has three highly productive individuals atop the depth chart in the form of Terry McLaurin, Jahan Dotson, and Curtis Samuel, who will all play important roles in Sam Howell's emergence next season.

This obviously makes life tougher for others looking to make their way. Dyami Brown is one who's suffered more than most, so this season is a pivotal one for the former third-round pick's future with the franchise.

Brown was considered a potential draft steal in 2021 after standing out considerably at North Carolina. This notion hasn't proved accurate as yet, but all hope is not lost as his old college quarterback gets set to become the team's No. 1 option under center.

Having a more creative play-caller in Eric Bieniemy could also work in Brown's favor. The offensive coordinator likes to spread the football around if his time with the Kansas Cty Chiefs is any indication, which could see more involvement for someone that generated just 14 targets in 2022.

What comes next is down to Brown. The chemistry with Howell is there and Bieniemy will know exactly how to put him in the best positions, so it's vital he takes advantage of every opportunity coming his way.
