Jahan Dotson’s Strong Rookie Season Reaches New Heights vs. 49ers

Jahan Dotson continues to cement his status as one of the Washington Commanders’ most dangerous weapons.

Saturday afternoon in Santa Clara, Calif., Dotson broke open in the corner of the end zone, catching a four-yard touchdown pass from Taylor Heinicke, to tie the Commanders at 7 against the San Francisco 49ers.


Dotson’s touchdown was his seventh of the season, and Saturday’s game was his third consecutive game with a touchdown snag. He continues to be an ideal complement in the Commanders’ passing attack to star Terry McLaurin.

Through the first 10 games of his NFL career, Dotson has caught 27 passes for 387 yards 7 touchdowns.

Chosen by the Commanders No. 16 overall in April’s NFL Draft, Dotson was the fifth wide receiver off the board in a loaded class at the position, and has wasted no time making a significant impact. Washington quarterbacks boast a 99.9 passer rating when targeting Dotson, who has dropped just one pass.
