2023 Season Outlooks

After breaking out for 11 touchdowns as a rookie, Claypool has totaled three scores with an average of 3.5 catches per game over the last two years. It was even worse in seven games with the Bears last season, getting a cool 2.0 grabs per outing (many of which without Darnell Mooney playing). Since then the Bears added D.J. Moore, all but eliminating Claypool as the team's possible go-to receiver. Claypool's past performance as a plus-size receiver is literally the only reason to even think about taking him in drafts. It certainly isn't his recent play, nor is it Chicago's offense, which isn't expected to become pass-heavy. Late-round picks can be better spent than on Claypool this summer.

Claypool is entering his first full season with Chicago after the Bears acquired him from the Steelers last season. The 2020 second-round pick looked like a budding star as a rookie (889 yards and 11 TDs and a 23rd-place fantasy finish) but took a step back the last two seasons (1,466 yards and three TDs in 30 games). Claypool was brought along slowly and struggled during his seven games with Chicago last season, totaling a 14-140-0 receiving line on 28 targets. The 25-year-old was a big investment by Chicago, so he's sure to play a sizable role in 2023. Of course, he'll be working behind DJ Moore and scrapping for targets with Darnell Mooney and Cole Kmet. Claypool's ceiling is limited a bit in Chicago's run-first scheme, but he could flirt with flex value and is a fine late-round flier.
