Fantasy Football: WR Sleepers
BEAST DOME NATION.
Draft day is coming up, if you want me to sit in on the draft with you or be your assistant coach/secret weapon throughout the season check out the VIP packages.
Every season there are WR’s who were drafted late in your league that turn into startable options. It is not always those late guys who you have to keep an eye on, but it is that group in the middle from 20-50 where you find the real gems.
MARQUES COLSTON – NO
MUNTRADAMUS RANK #6
Marques is not one of those guys from 20-50, but last season he finally found what it takes to be a consistent WR#1 option in all leagues. Drew Brees will throw to him often with Robert Meachem now in SD. Expect Colston to be a 100 reception WR when it is all said and done, and the nice thing about him is that he rarely faces double teams.
REGGIE WAYNE – IND
MUNTRADAMUS Rank #21
ADP # 29.
Wayne should have a big season now that Collie is about one big hit away from being done. This is Reggie’s team and Luck will throw the ball to the big superstar. Wayne should eclipse 1,000 Yards and 10+ TDs.
PIERRE GARCON – WAS
Muntradamus Rank #23
Pierre is a big play WR, and RG3 has already tagged him as the go-to-guy in that offense. Expect Garcon to thrive as he will be the #1 WR for the first time. His speed combined with RG3’s abilities to keep plays alive will result in some big TDs.
Santonio Holmes – NYJ
Muntradmus Rank #27
If there was ever a minor injury in training camp that made a player drop so much. I would have to say it was Holmes’s rib injury. This could be a special year for Santonio who is basically the only option the Jets have in the passing game. Mark Sanchez and Holmes do not talk at all, but you know when Tebow is QB of that team there will be plenty of love. Tebow made Demariyus Thomas great last season, Holmes could be in a similar situation.
JUSTIN BLACKMON – JAX
Muntradamus Rank #32
Justin Blackmon has Dez Bryant type potential. The only problem is his QB is Blaine Gabbert. Still Blackmon is good enough to be a player that you can depend on most weeks this season. He is big, strong, fast, and really has the potential to be a top 15 option if everything goes to plan. He may be inconsistent as a rookie, but the potential is there.
NATE WASHINGTON – TEN
Muntradamus Rank #33
Jake Locker had a man crush on Nate, and with Kenny Britt coming in and out of games all season long, I expect Nate to see enough targets that will make him well worth how late you can get him as a backup. Not someone I would want to start reguarly until Britt is OUT.
DANNY AMENDOLA – STL
MUNTRADAMUS RANK #38
ADP # 60
Danny will be the go-to-guy for the Rams this season. He had over 80 catchers in 2010, and unfortunately for him broke his arm in week 1 of last season. With no WR stepping up to be the guy, Danny will reclaim his spot. Not a guy to trust every week, but he will be a great bye week filler.
BRANDON LAFELL – CAR
MUNTRADAMUS RANK #39
LaFell is working a lot with Cam Newton while Steve Smith heals from his weird foot infection. LaFell might not be great every week, but he brings you quality depth. Likely the #3 passing option behind Smith and Olsen.
DEVERY HENDERSON – NO
MUNTRADAMUS RANK #45
Devery is a deep burner who was used to switching off hot weeks with Meachem. Now that Meachem is gone, Henderson can breathe for the first time. He is still the #4 target on the team behind Graham, Colston, and Moore. Just keep in mind it only takes two big plays from Henderson to have a double digit week.
