5 Late-Round Wide Receivers You Should Be Targeting

Bonnema analyzes five wide receivers who offer lots of upside for little draft capital.

There’s football on TV and school is back in session, which means it’s time to take ADP seriously. A lot can and will change between now and the start of the season, but late-round sleeper picks rarely see wild swings barring a major injury or suspension. To keep track of risers and fallers, keep an eye out for ADP risers and fallers updates. You can find our consensus ADP list here, which can be sorted by a variety of different formats and ADP tracking sites.

When targeting late-round wide receivers, we’re looking for these specific qualities:

  • Players attached to high-volume passing attacks.
  • Players who either have the WR2 role locked up or could after a few weeks.
  • Players who could be the WR1 for their team, even if that team is bad (Bills).
  • Players that offer weekly flex appeal thanks to deep-threat abilities.

The following wide receivers boast those qualities and could end up being solid WR3 options or better as the season wears on. As far as what “late-round” means, the following list only includes players that have fallen out of the 10th round in 12-team PPR leagues based on our consensus ADP list from August 12, and will be updated as necessary.
