Deep Sleepers: 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.

Michael Gallup, Dallas

Hester: After releasing Dez Bryant, the current wide receiver depth chart reads as follows: a mediocre sixth-year player recently arrested for public intoxication in embarrassing fashion; a former undrafted free agent who is often injured; and a diminutive slot receiver with a slot-receiver ceiling. Are Terrance Williams, Allen Hurns, and Cole Beasley really going to keep a talented rookie third-round pick off the field? Gallup was the ninth receiver taken in this year's draft, but he might be closer to a WR1 role than any rookie picked. The league's most run-centric offenses will still attempt at least 475 passes. It's not out of the question to think Gallup sees 16-20% of those. That's 76-95 targets, even if Dallas throws as few passes as any team in the league over the last two seasons.
