WR Sleepers

 

Gordon, Josh - CLE

Gordon, Josh

Gordon returned to the field for five games in 2017 after missing all but five games of the 2014-16 seasons due to suspension. He didn't seem to lose a beat, ranking 21st at the position in fantasy points during the five weeks he was active, thanks to 8.6 targets per game and despite a horrid 42 percent catch rate and only one touchdown. Gordon, who posted an absurd 87-1,646-9 line in only 14 games back in 2013, is still only 27 years old. He's an elite talent and the No. 1 receiver in Cleveland's improved offense, though he figures to be limited a bit by a low-volume passing game. Gordon is a good bet for WR2 numbers if he stays out of trouble.


Hilton, TY - IND

Hilton, TY

One year after pacing the NFL with 1,448 receiving yards and posting a career-best fifth-place finish in fantasy points, Hilton fell under 1,000 yards for the first time since 2012 and matched his worst fantasy season (27th). The reason for the deep dip was, of course, Andrew Luck's season-long injury. Hilton was still his explosive self, ranking fifth at the position with a 16.9 YPR and posting a trio of 150-plus yard games. Luck is expected to be back in 2018, and assuming that's the case, the 28-year-old Hilton is right back in the WR1 discussion.


Lee, Marqise - JAC

Lee, Marqise

Lee signed a four-year contract extension, and Allen Robinson signed with Chicago, which means Lee will pick up right where he left off as the team's No. 1 wide receiver. Lee will face competition for targets from Dede Westbrook, Donte Moncrief, D.J. Chark and Keelan Cole but shouldn't have much trouble matching the 6.7 targets per game he averaged the past two campaigns. Lee finished 41st among wide receivers in fantasy points in 2016 and 40th in 2017. Durability is a concern ' he's held up for a 16-game regular season just once in his career ' but Lee's role should allow him to flirt with flex numbers again in 2018.


Cooper, Amari - OAK

Cooper, Amari

Cooper set a career-high with seven touchdowns in 2017, but other than that, it was a highly disappointing campaign. The 2015 fourth overall pick had managed 70-plus receptions and eclipsed 1,000 receiving yards during each of his first two years, but he missed two games and was held to a 48-680 line in 2017. He was limited to a 52 percent catch rate and posted one of the three worst drop rates at the position for the second time in his career. On the plus side, Cooper finished strongly with a pair of top-15 fantasy weeks. He's also only 24 years old, and new coach Jon Gruden plans to feature him as the team's top receiver. There's risk here, but Cooper is an intriguing post-hype target.


Fuller, Will - HOU

Fuller, Will

Fuller is one of the hardest players to project this season. During the four weeks both he and Deshaun Watson were healthy last season, Fuller posted a 22-13-279-7 line and was fantasy's No. 2 scoring wide receiver. During his six other games in 2017, Fuller posted a 28-15-144-0 line and failed to post a single top-40 week. He has also missed eight games to injuries in two seasons. The 2016 first-round pick has ranked in the league's top four in aDOT each of his two seasons and has tremendous upside as the team's vertical complement to DeAndre Hopkins with Watson back under center. He's a risky midround investment, but there's breakout potential here.


Goodwin, Marquise - SF

Goodwin, Marquise

Goodwin was nothing more than a situational deep threat during his four seasons with Buffalo, but the world-class speedster took his game to a new level in San Francisco last season. Goodwin totaled 49 receptions for 780 yards and six touchdowns during his tenure with the Bills but posted a 56-962-2 line in 2018. Goodwin finished as fantasy's No. 31 wide receiver and could've done even more damage if not for unlucky touchdown numbers. Goodwin ranked 17th at the position in OTD (5.6) and 13th in end zone targets (10). Pierre Garcon is back in the fold in 2018, but Goodwin could easily lead the team in receiving yards. Goodwin has a shot at WR3 numbers with Jimmy Garoppolo under center.


Golladay, Kenny - DET

Golladay, Kenny

Golladay missed six games of his rookie season due to injury, but it was otherwise a successful campaign for the third-round pick. The Northern Illinois product was on the field for 69 percent of the team's pass plays when healthy, and he caught 28 of 47 targets for 477 yards and three touchdowns. Golladay, who stands 6-foot-4 with 4.50 wheels, will enter his second season buried behind Marvin Jones and Golden Tate, but he has shown flashes to suggest that a breakout could be on the horizon. At the very least, he'll play a significant role near the goal line and make for a high-ceiling handcuff.


GARCON, PIERRE - SF

GARCON, PIERRE

Garcon was averaging 9.0 targets per game and, despite having failed to score a single touchdown, sat 20th among wide receivers in fantasy points prior to suffering a season-ending neck injury last season. The heavy volume and low touchdown production was nothing new for Garcon. In 10 years in the league, he has yet to find the end zone more than six times in a season. Since 2009, he ranks sixth in the NFL in targets (969), but 21st in end zone targets (65). Garcon turns 32 this year and has posted only one fantasy season better than 24th (13th in 2013), but he has WR2 upside as Jimmy Garoppolo's top target.


Hogan, Chris - NE

Hogan, Chris

Hogan was one of the offseason's biggest 'winners,' and his biggest jolt forward came when the Patriots traded Brandin Cooks to the Rams. The trade sets up Hogan with a clear path to an every-down perimeter role and consistent target share. Hogan has never finished a season better than 60th at wide receiver in fantasy points, but he posted a 54-33-438-5 line and sat 10th among wide receivers in fantasy points prior to suffering a shoulder injury last season. Hogan's big-play ability and role as one of Tom Brady's top targets supply him with big upside and make him a flex target.


Wilson, Albert - MIA

Wilson, Albert

Wilson spent the first four seasons of his career as a situational receiver in Kansas City but managed to land a three-year, $24 million deal with Miami during the offseason. The former undrafted free agent posted a career-best 61-42-554-3 line in 2017 and is handling 3.5 targets per game in his career. Of course, Wilson is on the fantasy radar because he's the favorite to replace Jarvis Landry as Miami's primary slot man. Landry soaked up 9.5 targets per game in that role the past three seasons and, though Wilson is unlikely to match anything close to that, his hefty paycheck should assure him a significant workload. He's a fine WR5 target and should be downgraded in non-PPR formats.


Miller, Anthony - CHI

Miller, Anthony

Chicago finished a nearly complete overhaul of its wide receiver position by selecting Miller in the second round of the draft. The Memphis product is 5-foot-11, 201 pounds, isn't particularly fast and has had struggles with drops (eight last season). On the plus side, he's a polished route runner with good quickness and post-catch ability. Miller is positioned for a massive rookie-season role behind Allen Robinson. Miller, who turns 24 this year, has a good shot at earning the No. 2 gig over Taylor Gabriel and Kevin White in what should be a pass-heavy offense under new coach Matt Nagy. He's worth a look late in your draft.


Hurns, Allen - DAL

Hurns, Allen

Hurns is now with the Cowboys after spending the first four seasons of his career in Jacksonville. The 2014 undrafted free agent burst onto the NFL scene with 115 receptions for 1,708 yards and 16 touchdowns in 31 games during his first two seasons. Injuries have limited the former Miami Hurricane to 74 catches for 961 yards and five scores in 21 games over the past two campaigns. Hurns is going from one run-heavy offense to another but could emerge as Dak Prescott's top target with only Terrance Williams, Cole Beasley and rookie Michael Gallup as his primary competition. Hurns is in the flex mix and has WR2 upside.


Woods, Robert - LAR

Woods, Robert

Woods averaged a healthy 23 percent target share (6.9 per game) and ranked 10th among wide receivers in fantasy points during the 12 regular-season weeks for which he was active last season. And that doesn't even include the career-high 14 targets he had against Atlanta in the playoffs. Woods has missed at least one game because of injury during four of his five NFL seasons (including three straight campaigns), but he's clearly a fantasy force as Jared Goff's top target. Even with Cooper Kupp and Brandin Cooks in the mix, Woods shouldn't see a dip in usage in a Sean McVay offense built around picking apart defenses with good route-running possession receivers. He belongs in starting lineups again this season.


Moore, DJ - CAR

Moore, DJ

Selected by Carolina 24th overall, Moore was the first wide receiver picked during the draft. The former Maryland Terrapin is 6 feet, 210 pounds and enjoyed a breakout season with 80 catches for 1,033 yards and eight scores in 2017. He's quick and tough with solid speed (4.42-second 40-yard dash), hands and post-catch ability. Moore is extremely young (turned 21 in April) but could make noise early with the likes of Devin Funchess, Torrey Smith and Curtis Samuel his primary competition for snaps. Rookie wide receivers have struggled to make an impact in recent years, so Moore is best-viewed as a late-round flier.
