With the end of preseason fast approaching, this is the prime time for fantasy football drafts. The wide receiver position always holds the most question marks, with top-ranked players often becoming busts while guys you’d never given serious thought end up having good production. Here are the top five deep sleepers at the WR position for you to consider.
Brian Hoyer was groomed in the New England Patriots' offensive system in which the quarterback tends to give undersized slot receivers an abundance of targets. Andrew Hawkins could very well become that safety net for Hoyer, at least while Josh Gordon is serving his suspension.
Brandon LaFell may be in the midst of a crowd of New England Patriots receivers, but keep an eye on the former Carolina Panther because he has been getting a lot of looks with the first team throughout the month of August. His 6-foot-3 frame makes him a desirable target for Tom Brady.
Even though the quarterback situation in Oakland makes fantasy owners cringe, it’s worth noting that James Jones will carry much of the load for the Oakland Raiders in the passing game. In the event that Matt Schaub turns his career around or rookie Derek Carr bursts onto the scene, Jones will be a very valuable player.
With the departure of Darren Sproles and Lance Moore over the offseason, there is an opportunity for Stills to take on a larger role in the New Orleans Saints' offense. Rookie Brandin Cooks will get the attention of most fantasy owners, but Kenny Stills could end up being a late-round gem.
Josh Gordon can be considered a deep sleeper because of his looming, unknown suspension — it’s pretty likely that no one in your league will want to touch Gordon with a 10-foot pole. Although he will undoubtedly miss a big chunk of the season, you won’t regret it later in the season when he returns from suspension and is putting up monstrous production.
