If you're looking for depth at the wide receiver position on your fantasy football team, you've come to the right place.

Whether it's a rash of injuries or lack of production that's plaguing your lineup, I'm here to help you with your fantasy woes.

Below you will find three under-the-radar wideouts who will immediately impact your squad.

T.Y. Hilton


Buried on the Indianapolis Colts' wide receiver depth chart is T.Y. Hilton, a versatile rookie from Florida International.

With just one reception to his credit this season prior to Week 3, Hilton went for four receptions, 113 yards and a TD on Sunday, amassing 17.3 fantasy points.

Hilton was targeted eight times by Andrew Luck, which is a good sign for owners who are looking for wide receivers on pass-happy teams.

The Colts get an average Green Bay Packers pass defense in Week 5, as they're on a bye in Week 4.


Cecil Shorts

If you're in a deeper league and looking to change things up a bit, try Cecil Shorts of the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Shorts made the most of his one reception on Sunday by going 80 yards for the score.

Shorts was a surprising fantasy standout in Week 1, hauling in four passes for 74 yards and a TD.

Shorts has put up 13 fantasy points in two of his three games this season and has been effective when the ball is thrown his way.

Again, if you're in a 14 or 16-team league, you may want to give this guy a go.


Andrew Hawkins

Andrew Hawkins made two receptions for 66 yards and a TD against the Washington Redskins on Sunday, netting owners 14.2 fantasy points.

On Friday, I advised fantasy owners to add Andrew Hawkins while they could.

Hopefully they listened.

He's now found the end zone in two straight games and is cementing himself as the No. 2 wideout on the Cincinnati Bengals depth chart.

If this dude is still available, snag him before it's too late.

Or before your Week 4 opponent does.
