Jamison Crowder’s dynasty value is too low after moving from the New York Jets’ abysmal passing offense to Buffalo’s high-powered offense led by Josh Allen. My underrated WR series has gone in order of ADP, which puts him as #6. None of these players will have an ADP under 100 and none are top 36 at the position according to DLF SuperFlex ADP.
Current ADP: 254
Positional Rank: 98
Jamison Crowder Fills the Role of Cole Beasley
Despite the Gabriel Davis hype, I think Jamison Crowder is the guy who is going to come in and garner a ton of targets from Josh Allen. Cole Beasley averaged seven targets per game in 2021 and 7.1 in 2020. When Crowder averaged 7.4 targets, in a poor offense in 2020, he averaged 14.3 fantasy points per game.
I don’t think it is hard to convince anyone that the Buffalo offense in 2022 will produce higher-value targets than Crowder has ever received with the Washington Redskins or New York Jets.
What is his 2022 Outlook?
Unlike most late-round picks, Jamison Crowder’s dynasty value is too low because he is legitimately in line for 120 targets, even if Gabriel Davis sees an increase in opportunities.
Similar to his 2019 season where he played 16 games, received 122 targets, 78 receptions, 833 yards and 6+ TD’s are a real possibility. In that season he finished as WR26 despite only averaging 12.4 fantasy points. With Josh Allen throwing to him, I think he can improve on the touchdowns, and even the yards, though likely topping out in between 900-950 on the very high end.
To put Jamison Crowder’s past production into perspective, DK Metcalf finished as WR14 in 2021 averaging 14.4 fantasy points per game. Michael Pittman and D.J. Moore finished as WR17 & WR18 with 14 fantasy points per game. Cole Beasley averaged 12.3 in 2019 and 13.8 in 2020 before his 2021 letdown.
I think Jamison Crowder’s dynasty value is low because of a down 2021 season in a really bad Jets offense. I don’t think there is any reason that he can’t match or exceed Beasley’s numbers from 2019 and 2020 with monster Stefon Diggs commanding a ton of the attention.
Keys to Fantasy Success for Jamison Crowder
The answer to this is simple. Jamison Crowder’s dynasty value will rise if he can stay healthy in 2022. He has always been an above-average slot receiver, but has been stuck in lackluster offenses, and has battled injuries three of the past four seasons. While we may not get a full 17-game season, I will never try to predict injuries.
What I am confident in, is that at worst, in games he is healthy, we can start Jamison Crowder in the FLEX at worst. At best, he ends up being a weekly WR2 while getting 7-8 targets from Allen.
Jamison Crowder’s Dynasty Value is Too Low in 2022 Conclusion
A porous Jets offense and injuries have suppressed Jamison Crowder’s dynasty value, but he now joins potentially the best QB in the NFL in an offense with a ton of touchdown upside. The beautiful part of the entire Jamison Crowder situation is that at pick 254 and WR98, there is absolutely no risk.
