Matt Waldman’s RSP Cast: Rashod Bateman’s 2022 Outlook and Using Fantasy Projections


Matt Waldman’s RSP Cast discusses his outlook for Baltimore Ravens receiver Rashod Bateman’s 2022 campaign and shows you how to use fantasy football projections to understand the process behind the totals.

“Why no love for Bateman?

This is what Jacob, a long-time reader, and listener, asked me about Rashod Bateman on Twitter after seeing the June update for the RSP’s 2022 Dynasty Rankings and Projections Package. He included Matt Harmon’s assessment of Bateman as a talent with a lot of qualities similar to Keenan Allen and Justin Jefferson.

It’s a great subject to discuss something many fantasy GMs and fans don’t understand about assessing talent–especially in fantasy leagues: Talent is only part of the equation.

Usage, the skills of the supporting talent (OL and QB for a WR), and the history of the offense – a scheme that isn’t expected to make a significant change—are all important factors.

This week, I take you through the RSP’s projection process to explain why Bateman qualifies as a breakout player with my data but with production that isn’t on the level of Justin Jefferson, or even Keenan Allen’s recent totals. I also share what to look for when examining projections so you know if the process behind the data is sound.

And of course, if you want to know about the rookies from this draft class, you will find the most in-depth analysis of offensive skill players available (QB, RB, WR, and TE), with the 2022 Rookie Scouting Portfolio for $21.95. 

Matt’s new RSP Dynasty Rankings and Two-Year Projections Package is available for $24.95

If you’re a fantasy owner and interested in purchasing past publications for $9.95 each, the 2012-2020 RSPs also have a Post-Draft Add-on that’s included at no additional charge.

Best yet, proceeds from sales are set aside for a year-end donation to Darkness to Light to combat sexual abuse.
