WR Sleepers

 

FITZGERALD, LARRY - ARI

FITZGERALD, LARRY

The Cardinals offensive game plan figures to be much improved in 2019 if only because it would be hard for it to be much worse. Fitzgerald considered retirement, but Kliff Kingsbury really wanted him back and they paid the veteran a handsome sum to return. That suggests he'll be heavily involved in the game plan and should be a good value in PPR leagues once again. Fitzgerald had three straight seasons with at least 100 catches before last year. He'll be 36 years old when the season starts and is coming off a season where he didn't reach 800 yards. The odds are Christian Kirk is the No. 1 receiver in this offense now and the Cardinals drafted both Hakeem Butler and Andy Isabella. Kingsbury's offense will be predicated on speed which will make it hard for Fitzgerald to stand out amongst all the young talent.


Lee, Marqise - JAC

Lee, Marqise

If you're looking for a low-risk, late-round receiver with some good upside, look no further than Marqise Lee. Before suffering a major knee injury last preseason, Lee was considered a breakout candidate thanks to his good speed and route-running ability. With Chris Conley and D.J. Chark as his only serious competition for playing time along the outside (receiver Dede Westbrook figures to man the slot), Lee should see significant snaps with the Nick Foles-led Jaguars passing game this fall. Get a look at him during the preseason - if he seems back to normal, there's no reason not to take him with a pick after Round 12.


Anderson, Robby - NYJ

Anderson, Robby

Anderson has already been a top-25 receiver once in his career and looked like one again after he formed a bond with Sam Darnold. On a team full of slot receivers, Anderson stands out as the big-play threat, and he's hinted this offseason that the Jets plan on using him as a more complete receiver instead of just sending him deep on every snap. If Sam Darnold takes a step forward in his sophomore season, Anderson figures to be the main beneficiary as the No. 1 receiver in New York. The only receiver we saw put up big numbers under Adam Gase in Miami was Jarvis Landry, and it's hard to imagine a receiver less like Anderson than Landry. The Jets signed Le'Veon Bell and Jamison Crowder in the offseason, which will put a serious dent in Anderson's target upside. He looks like a very good third receiver in best-ball leagues, but he'll be maddening to own in a league where you have to choose when to start him.


Treadwell, Laquon - MIN

Treadwell, Laquon

It's downright sad that Laquon Treadwell has just 517 yards and one touchdown through three NFL seasons. How could a former first-round pick be this bad? Don't even bother thinking about that - go look for another sleeper receiver to draft because Treadwell isn't it.


Taylor, Trent - SF

Taylor, Trent

The 49ers selected Taylor in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL draft, and the Louisiana Tech product quickly took control as their slot man. Taylor was on the field for 54 percent of the team's pass plays as a rookie and caught 43 passes for 430 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Extremely undersized at 5-foot-8, 179 pounds, Taylor was a short-area target (his 6.6 aDOT and 10.0 yards per reception were both fifth-lowest) with minimal work near the goal line (three end zone targets). With Pierre Garcon and Marquise Goodwin ahead of him, Taylor is no more than a sleeper in PPR leagues.


Moore, David - SEA

Moore, David

David Moore could be a potential starter in Seattle this season with Doug Baldwin gone, and Moore could be someone to draft with a late-round pick in deeper Fantasy leagues. Tyler Lockett will definitely start for the Seahawks, but behind him are several question marks with Baldwin out. Rookies D.K. Metcalf and Gary Jennings are expected to play a prominent role, but don't be surprised if Moore gets plenty of targets from Russell Wilson this year. He was one of the top reserve receivers for the Seahawks last year, but he managed just four games with double digits in PPR points. That should change if he earns the starting spot opposite Lockett in training camp.


Hamilton, DaeSean - DEN

Hamilton, DaeSean

DaeSean Hamilton should be among the top three receivers for the Broncos this season along with Courtland Sutton and Emmanuel Sanders, but Hamilton's role could increase if Sanders in slow in his recovery from last year's Achilles' injury. As a rookie, Hamilton played sparingly until Sanders got hurt prior to Week 14. With Sanders out, Hamilton manned the slot in Denver, and he closed the final four games of the year averaging 13.3 PPR points per game, including two games with at least 16 PPR points. We hope Denver keeps Hamilton in the slot this year, but that could depend on Sanders. Hamilton is worth drafting with a mid-round pick in all leagues, with his value slightly higher in PPR, and he could have a big season if Sanders suffers a setback in his recovery.


Washington, James - PIT

Washington, James

Antonio Brown has left the building and left 168 targets in his wake. Washington won't come close to that number, but he's the most talented receiver on the roster outside of JuJu Smith-Schuster. The Steelers threw the ball 689 times in 2018, so it's not hard at all to find 120 targets for Washington, who profiles as a big-play receiver who should have success in the red zone. Only Justin Hunter had a worse catch rate in this offense in 2018. The Steelers still have James Conner and Vance McDonald. They also added Donte Moncrief and Diontae Johnson in the offseason, who Washington will have to beat out for the No. 2 role.


Miller, Anthony - CHI

Miller, Anthony

As a rookie, Anthony Miller led the Bears with seven receiving touchdowns. He'll aim to lead them in more categories in 2019 presuming offseason shoulder surgery doesn't keep him off the field. One stat where he'll look to make a jump: targets. Last season he averaged just 3.6 per game while working mostly out of the slot. His role figures to be the same in 2019, albeit with more targets headed his way. It helps that the Bears didn't add any major names to their receiving corps, opening the door for Miller to be a bigger contributor. It's tempting to draft him ahead of teammate Allen Robinson as a Round 9 value pick. Miller's a nice receiver to stash on your bench and see how he begins his second season, though we'd prefer the likes of Christian Kirk and Courtland Sutton ahead of him.


St. Brown, Equanimeous - GB

St. Brown, Equanimeous

Aaron Rodgers' No. 2 receiver is tough to identify at this stage of the offseason, and that makes St. Brown a potentially huge bargain. Marquez Valdes-Scantling clouds the picture in Green Bay’s receiving corps, but ESB actually outproduced MVS in the last six games they played together. Each player had 12 catches, but St. Brown accumulated 46 more receiving yards between Weeks 11 and 16 last year. Both receivers have upside to outplay their rankings, but I prefer taking the draft-day discount and getting extra room for growth with the younger player in St. Brown.


Allison, Geronimo - GB

Allison, Geronimo

Allison is the Packers' clear No. 2 receiver, which means he'll get close to 100 targets from Aaron Rodgers. Just about anyone would be good in those circumstances. In the four games before he got hurt in 2018, he was on pace for 1,156 yards and eight scores. Allison has been in the NFL for three seasons and has a total of 55 catches and four touchdowns. There is no guarantee he bests Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown in training camp. And even if he does, there's no guarantee he's relevant. In 2017, 42% of the Packers' targets went to Davante Adams and Jimmy Graham. Another 17% went to the running backs. That doesn't leave much room for Allison to get to a 20% target share.


Foster, Robert - BUF

Foster, Robert

Robert Foster should be among the top four receivers for the Bills this season, but it's unknown where he'll be on the depth chart heading into training camp. The additions of John Brown and Cole Beasley could push Foster to No. 4 behind Zay Jones as well, or Foster could emerge as the No. 1 target for Josh Allen. We need to see how Buffalo decides to use all of its receivers and where Foster slots in on the depth chart, but he played well to close last season with at least 12 PPR points in three of his final four games. He's worth a late-round pick in all leagues on Draft Day this year.


Moncrief, Donte - PIT

Moncrief, Donte

After trading away Antonio Brown to the Raiders for a couple of measly picks, the Steelers signed Donte Moncrief to "replace" him. At 6-foot-2, Moncrief gives Pittsburgh a big-bodies receiver to work the sideline and haul in high-percentage passes from Ben Roethlisberger. Before Moncrief suffered some nagging injuries, he was a good touchdown target for Andrew Luck. Unless the Steelers get James Washington or a rookie to step up opposite JuJu Smith-Schuster, Moncrief could be a suitable starter for them and a bottom-of-the-barrel bench receiver for your Fantasy team. You won't get laughed at if you take Moncrief with one of your last two picks on Draft Day.


Funchess, Devin - IND

Funchess, Devin

The Colts are excited to add Devin Funchess to their receiving corps, but will he transform into a reliable Fantasy option? Funchess has been subpar throughout his career, notching career-highs in 2017 when he was the de facto No. 1 receiver for the Panthers and was pelted with targets. Odds are slim he'll come close to 100 targets in Indianapolis, making Funchess more of a touchdown-dependent receiver. That being said, Andrew Luck is an absolute maestro in the red zone and Funchess gives him another big body for defenses to deal with. Funchess also could be the pet project of coach Frank Reich, who admitted to liking his route-running skills. Don't be surprised to see Funchess get picked late in Fantasy drafts as a low-risk sleeper, and also don't be surprised if he winds up being a taller version of Donte Moncrief, who never amounted to huge numbers in Indy's offense.


Hardman, Mecole - KC

Hardman, Mecole

We don't know if the Chiefs are going to have Tyreek Hill or not, but if they don't Hardman profiles as exactly the type of receiver who could fill Hill's shoes. He's very good around the line of scrimmage and has the speed to get behind the defense. Those two attributes are enough to succeed with Patrick Mahomes.. Hardman is extremely raw and it's not like Hill was a gadget player made elite by Mahomes. He had improved greatly as a receiver since he joined the league and Hardman still needs that seasoning. The most likely scenario has him fourth in the pecking order behind Travis Kelce, Sammy Watkins and whoever starts at running back
