Robert Woods is one of the most well-rounded wide receivers in football. He's probably not a top-five player in any particular aspect of the position – he just does a little bit of everything at a high level.

His real-life value is pretty much mirrored by his fantasy football value, as his WR14 finish in PPR leagues last year is as solid as it gets. But it seems as if some are taking Woods for granted this season, and he looks like a great value at his current average draft position (ADP).

Woods is currently the WR19 in terms of ADP, per FantasyPros. He outperformed that ranking pretty easily last season (in just 15 games), and the numbers show he should've been even better.

Despite handling some astronomical volume (139 targets and 90 receptions), Woods only found the end zone twice through the air, adding one more score on the ground. That's a ridiculously low TD total for someone with just shy of 140 targets.

In fact, Woods' 2019 season is actually something of a historical outlier. Since targets became an official stat (1992), Woods is one of just two wide receivers ever that saw at least 135 targets, caught 90-plus passes and totaled more than 1,100 receiving yards while scoring 2 or fewer receiving TDs. The other was Keyshawn Johnson (2001).

That's a long way of saying that Woods is likely to see the end zone a lot more often than he did last year. He's not a flashy pick by any means, but he's a rock-solid WR2 and an incredibly safe option.

We have Woods ranked as the WR23 in our 2020 rankings.
