Fantasy Football Sleepers: 5 Best Sleeper Picks at WR
Who is going to have a big year from the group of perceived second or even third tier of receivers in the NFL.
There is always a Lance Moore or Stevie Johnson in every NFL season. Who will those guys be this year?
Pierre Garcon - Colts
It seems the Colts are always finding quality receivers or maybe its just Peyton Manning making it easy for these young guys to succeed.
We saw Garcon excel last year in relief of the oft-injured Anthony Gonzalez. In the very high likelihood that Gonzalez were to get injured again this season, Garcon has already shown his ability to succeed in the system.
With a healthy Manning, which is up in the air right now, Garcon will definitely get his share of targets. Even with Kerry Collins under center, Garcon should still be a good late-round pickup.
Mike Williams - Seahawks
Big Mike rejuvenated his career under Pete Carroll in Seattle last year and I expect the ascension to continue this year.
Williams is extremely physical and succeeds in possession areas on the field. Intermediate routes and slants will likely be a favorite of Tavaris Jackson as well as his backup Charlie Whitehurst, if Jackson gives way this season.
Williams is a sure handed, big-bodied receiver. That is always an attractive target for unproven QBs.
Mike Thomas - Jaguars
Little Mike Thomas only stands about 5'8" but he proved last year that he could put up some nice fantasy numbers. He improved from his rookie totals to grab 66 passes for 820 yards and 4 TDs while playing in all 16 games.
While not spectacular, it will definitely prevent you from laying an egg in the bye weeks of your best receivers.
Greg Little - Browns
Little is an extremely talented yards after the catch WR. He started the final preseason game and with Cleveland's less than stellar starters Josh Cribbs and Brian Robiskie, it is possible Little could get a lot of playing time this year.
Julio Jones - Falcons
Jones is the best rookie WR in the NFL. Yes, even better than AJ Green in my opinion. As far as fantasy is concerned, he is in the best spot. He has a proven and capable QB, a true star WR on the other side of the field who will garner his share of double-teams and all time great at TE.
Jones should have a nice TD output this season.
