Casey Washington Catching as Much Buzz as Footballs in Atlanta
1 month ago

Without an established number 2 wide receiver behind Drake London, the Falcons may have an uncut gem in Casey Washington.

When the Atlanta Falcons opted to select Michael Penix Jr. with the 8th overall pick, they chose against boosting their wide receiver room behind Drake London. A trade for Rondale Moore and the signing of Darnell Mooney have been the only significant waves for the Falcons wide receiver room this offseason. 


In a much lauded wide receiver class, Casey Washington has not registered much buzz. Drafted in the 6th round from the Illinois Fighting Illini, the rookie has ascended from the 3rd and 4th-string offense up to a mixture to the 1st and 2nd-team units during team OTAs. Wide receivers coach Ike Hilliard praised Washington’s strong hands and hand eye coordination.


There has been early chemistry with Michael Penix Jr. and praise given by wide receiver counterpart Drake London. For fantasy gamers who are having difficulty exhibiting some ingenuity in selecting different players in the last round of your Best Ball drafts, Casey Washington is a new player to build into your drafting portfolio, particularly with Atlanta Falcons stacks and correlated to Falcons late season opponents.
