Tylan Wallace: 25 receptions 250 yards, two touchdowns
Yesterday I wrote an article predicting that Marquise Brown would have 70 receptions. I just gave 45 receptions to Bateman. That’s 115 receptions accounted for right there. Tylan Wallace was a fourth-round pick, so it’s going to be hard to give him a huge portion of the production.
Bateman was the first-round pick, he’s exempt from the Ravens’ attitudes towards rookies. Devin Duvernay was a third-round pick last year and he only had 20 grabs for 200 yards. James Proche was a sixth-round pick and he basically got nothing to his name in year one.
Wallace is a player who I have a lot of confidence in. I wouldn’t be shocked if Bateman and Wallace eventually become the top two targets of the Jackson era. In the 2021 season, Wallace has to wait his turn. Sammy Watkins will have at least 40 catches. That put’s me up to 155 completed passes. Mark Andrews is going to have 60 to 70 receptions. Nick Boyle will have 20-30 passes hauled in.
That puts me at 235 receptions from the offense before I even get to Devin Duvernay or Wallace. Remember, the Ravens had 257 completed passes last year. I’m being fairly generous here because I believe in Lamar Jackson and I like the progress Keith Williams and Tee Martin will bring to the passing game.
Put Wallace down for 25 receptions for 250 yards and a couple of touchdowns. Duvernay will have similar numbers and the two young receivers will round out the group’s performance. Wallace and Duvernay will catch it when they get their chances and there will be times when they need to chip in.
