There is a lot of value to be had in the later rounds of your fantasy football draft. Knowing who is a good value pick versus who will be a non-factor is what will make your team a champion in your league. Whether it be injury concerns or a crowded WR corps, you should pass on these five WRs in your fantasy football draft in 2014.
Andre Johnson is aging with a quarterback who is subpar at his best. Johnson has expressed frustration with his situation and rightfully so, but it makes you wonder if the player who so often plays through minor injuries might be more apt to sit some games out if he feels even the slightest tweak. Even at full potential, Johnson is a risk just due to the quarterback talent currently in Houston.
I'm a fan of Cordarrelle. I really like his potential -- for next year that is. Sure, he could absolutely blow up and put up WR1 numbers, but be careful to not underplay Patterson's floor in fantasy terms. He's currently being drafted in the third or fourth round, which is why I suggest you don't consider drafting him. In rounds 6 or 7, he has the value for what he'll produce. Be patient and let someone else reach on Patterson.
Michael Crabtree has now been in the NFL in five years, and really only had one great year where he had 1,105 yards and nine touchdowns. That will be an uphill climb for Crabtree to be able to attain those numbers again. For that reason I'm passing on Crabtree this year. The San Francisco 49ers have Vernon Davis, Stevie Johnson and Anquan Boldin on top of Crabtree. That's a lot of mouths to feed for a team who will run the ball quite a big chunk.
Here is a guy who simply comes down to injuries. Harvin has all the physical tools in the world, but that doesn't matter because once the pads come on, Harvin will get injured and let down your team yet again.
It's hard to suggest you not to draft a key WR in a Peyton Manning offense. Wes Welker is literally probably one or two more concussions away from being done for his career. As much as I try to ignore that, I just can't. If you can live with your fifth or sixth-round pick being completely wiped from your roster during the first half of the season, by all means draft Welker. As for me, I will play it more cautiously and pass on him.
