1. Olamide Zaccheaus
Headed into the season Bryan Edwards was expected to be the first or second option at receiver with Kyle Pitts being the primary target and London likely needing time to settle into his rookie season.
Those expectations couldn’t be further than the reality six weeks into the season. Olamide has become Atlanta’s unquestioned second target making consistent big plays and clutch grabs that have put Atlanta in a position to compete for the division early in the year.
While Drake London might be getting most of the attention, Olamide trails his production by only 35-yards with 271-receiving yards on the season and 2-touchdown grabs. His emergence as Mariota’s second target has been impressive but what makes his production underrated is the fact he is doing it without even half of London’s targets and seven less than Kyle Pitts so far this season.
If you throw the ball in Olamide’s direction this season the stats say he will make the catch. Only 18-targets on the year and Zaccheaus has caught sixteen of them giving him easily the best catch rate of Atlanta’s top targets. What he is accomplished so far this season has been impressive and has him on pace to easily surpass all of his previous career highs.
