Here are the top five deep wide receiver sleepers in fantasy football as we head into week three of the NFL preseason.
Floyd has looked great so far this preseason, so great that the San Diego Union-Tribune has labeled him as the runaway MVP of Chargers camp. Prior to last years injury-plagued campaign, Floyd had at least 717 receiving yards in his last four seasons and five touchdowns in his last three. Floyd is the 78th WR going in drafts and could be a solid WR 4/5.
Lee is currently the 71st WR going in drafts. Why not take a very late-round flier on a talented rookie who will very likely be a starting WR right out of the gate? Lee was criticized for a lackluster performance in Jacksonville's first preseason game, but he bounced back in Week 2, catching all four of his targets, including a touchdown.
Josh Gordon is going to be suspended, nobody knows for how long, but he's going to receive at least a lengthy suspension. If he comes back, though, halfway through the season, a 14th-round pick is great value for the No. 1 receiver. In the meantime, somebody is going to have to catch the ball in Cleveland. Andrew Hawkins is the 77th WR going in drafts and Miles Austin is 64th, any potential No. 1 receiver is worth a late-round flier.
As a rookie, Stills was a lethal deep threat for Drew Brees and the Saints (he lead the NFL with 20 yards per catch last season). The Saints said peace out to both Darren Sproles and Lance Moore this offseason which should lead to at least a few more targets for Stills, and he only needs a few to make a big jump in fantasy production.
Hunter legitimately has the potential to be a top-30 wide receiver, especially if Zach Mettenberger can supplant Jake Locker as the Titans' gunslinger. Hunter had four catches, 111 yards and two touchdowns against the Saints in Week 2 of the preseason. The opportunity for Hunter is there; the Titans' depth chart -- behind Kendall Wright -- is very unimpressive at WR and he has the size and athleticism that should allow him to blossom.
