Renfrow had a career season in his third year in 2021, and now he will look to build on it. But that could be tough to do given the addition of Davante Adams in Las Vegas, and Renfrow could be headed back to Fantasy mediocrity. He's worth drafting in Round 8 in PPR, with his value lower in non- and 0.5-PPR leagues. Prior to last season, Renfrow averaged 10.2 and 8.2 PPR points per game in his first two years in the NFL. Then his production popped last season when he averaged 15.2 PPR points per game. Part of that was the natural maturation process in his third season in the NFL, but Darren Waller (knee) also missed five games, putting Renfrow in a prominent spot. Waller is back, and with Adams now in the fold, we could see Renfrow's stats decline. He's still worth drafting as a No. 3 PPR receiver, but don't overvalue him based on last year.
Renfrow set career highs across the board and finished as a top 14 fantasy WR across scoring formats last year.
His 128 targets played a big part in that, though. And that’s a number he’ll have trouble matching in 2022 with Davante Adams in town and Darren Waller likely healthier.
Still, Renfrow has obvious rapport with QB Derek Carr and will be playing in a Josh McDaniels offense that’s been friendly to slot receivers. Consider him a WR3 in full PPR drafts and a WR4 in half and non-PPR.
Renfrow is entering his fourth NFL season fresh off a breakout 2021in which he finished no lower than 13th among wide receivers in targets, receptions, touchdowns and fantasy points. Renfrow has lived in the short area, ranking in the eighth percentile or lower in average depth of target all three seasons. Of course, his efficiency has been great, as he's second at the position in catch rate and sixth in RAC since he was drafted (min. 200 targets). As good as Renfrow has been, the 26-year-old is ticketed for fewer targets this season with Davante Adams in the mix and Darren Waller back to full health. A repeat top-10 fantasy campaign is unlikely, but Renfrow will see enough work to keep him on the WR3 radar.
