DAL WR Jalen Tolbert - Week 1 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 1 vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
If you don't know this name, you soon will after this season. There has been nothing but positive reports on rookie wide receiver Jalen Tolbert this summer. With Michael Gallup currently rehabbing an injury, the WR2 role on this Dallas team is wide open.

There is no better week than this week for Tolbert to try and make a run for the WR2 job. There should be plenty of opportunities to put up yards and even find the end zone. With that said, I am not willing to roll the dice in the first week of the season. Keep Tolbert on your bench for now and let's see how this Dallas wide receiver corps shapes up.

DAL WR Jalen Tolbert - 2022 Fantasy Football Outlook

2022 Fantasy Upside
The WR2 role in Dallas is very much unknown, which translates to the perfect opportunity for rookie Jalen Tolbert. He was a mega-producer at South Alabama, where he totaled 82 receptions, 1,474 receiving yards, and eight touchdowns during his senior season. Tolbert’s 4.49 speed and third-round draft capital provide the perfect foundation to make an immediate impact on an explosive offense during his rookie season.

2022 Fantasy Downside
Tolbert didn’t break out until his age 20 season, an area of concern when projecting a strong rookie season. His 4.49 speed is impressive, but his speed and burst scores are only average for his 6-foot-1, 194-lb frame (PlayerProfiler). While the unknown potential of a rookie is always tantalizing, whether the coaching staff will trust Tolbert to make plays remains to be seen.

2022 Bottom Line
Tolbert has been turning heads all offseason, from OTAs to training camp. With Michael Gallup unlikely to return until early October, Tolbert has a legitimate chance to grab a starting spot in Week 1. Opportunity is king in fantasy football, and this talented third-round wideout will have a great chance to make a big first impression come September.
