Sportsbooks have prop markets available for receiving yards totals for the top NFL rookie wide receivers, and those totals provide an opportunity to see how bookmakers view the upside of this year’s class of unproven pass-catchers from a betting perspective.
While they’re definitely of note to futures bettors, these props are also a chance for fantasy managers to look at how the rookie wide receivers rank through the sports gambling lense.
2022 NFL Rookie Receiving Yards Prop Totals

Treylon Burks, Tennessee Titans
The draft-night trade of wide receiver A.J. Brown to the Philadelphia Eagles opened the door for Burks to be selected by the Titans with the 18th overall selection in the 2022 NFL Draft. Burks immediately becomes the Titans most talented receiver and projects to line up opposite savvy veteran Robert Woods, albeit in the Tennessee run-happy offense.
Drake London, Atlanta Falcons
Stylish London was the first wide receiver selected in the 2022 NFL Draft. He has already hit the field during rookie minicamps to prove his health after sustaining a broken ankle in October that capped off his final collegiate campaign. London currently projects as the clear-cut No. 1 receiver for the Falcons.
Garrett Wilson, New York Jets
Gang Green landed the betting favorite to be the first wide receiver selected in the 2022 NFL Draft with the 10th overall selection, but Wilson has more competition for targets than the previously noted wideouts. Veteran Corey Davis is a capable chain-mover, whereas 2021 second-rounder Elijah Moore impressed in spurts as a rookie last year.
Chris Olave, New Orleans Saints
Speaking of a crowded receiving corps, the Saints already boasted established wideouts, Michael Thomas and Jarvis Landry, in addition to Marquez Callaway, Tre'Quan Smith, and Deonte Harris, before selecting Olave with the 11th overall selection in the 2022 NFL Draft. Bookmakers seem to think the rookie will carve out a meaningful role in a hurry, though.
Skyy Moore, Kansas City Chiefs
Former Kansas City wide receiver Tyreek Hill leaves a massive opening at the position, and the Chiefs brought in wideouts JuJu Smith-Schuster and Marquez Valdes-Scantling through free agency to compete with Mecole Hardman before selecting Moore in the second round of the 2022 NFL Draft. The cookie's still crumbling in KC, but the potential's sky-high for Moore.
Christian Watson, Green Bay Packers
The Last time the Packers picked a wide receiver higher than Watson – 34th overall – was in the 2002 NFL Draft when the organization snagged Javon Walker with the 20th overall selection. Now, can Watson develop the chemistry needed to connect with reigning, two-time NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers?
Jahan Doctson, Washington Commanders
The Penn State alum will probably settle into a ho-hum role behind No. 1 wide receiver Terry McLaurin and quietly have a modest freshman campaign catching passes from quarterback Carson Wentz. Doctson not garnering buzzy headlines ahead of, during, or after the draft might also foreshadow his claim to a decent target share in the Washington vertical attack.
