21 Deep Sleepers at Wide Receivers - Footballguys

The Footballguys staff digs deep for sleepers at wide receiver

A fantasy draft is all about obtaining the most value with each selection. There is value available throughout a draft, and grabbing it is one of the most important keys to a successful fantasy team. This article specifically targets deep sleeper value (players that can be found very late in a fantasy draft). In an attempt to point out this value, we asked our staff to look deeper than the Top 150 and identify players that should significantly outperform their late draft position. These players should be your targets after the 12th round of your draft.

John Brown, Baltimore

Phil Alexander: Sometimes the preseason drum beat grows too loud to ignore. Since training camp started, we haven’t gone more than a few days without hearing about Brown exceeding expectations, standing out, or building chemistry with Joe Flacco. Brown is only two years removed from a 101-65-1,003-7 season as a second-year player. His two seasons since were derailed by injuries and complications from his sickle-cell trait. There’s obvious risk Brown can miss action at any time, but it’s also more than baked into his ADP. Playing with a big-armed quarterback, Brown has legitimate WR2 upside you won’t find in players like Eric Decker, who are currently being drafted in the same tier.
