Wide receivers seems to be the primary position for fantasy football these days. There are so many good wide receivers in the NFL and it is probably the deepest position in the NFL. Cooper Kupp (LAR), Ja’Marr Chase (CIN), Justin Jefferson (MIN), Davante Adams (LV), and Stefon Diggs (BUF) will be some of the top wide receivers in fantasy football this season.
Some leagues play a PPR kind of setting and some leagues have a standard setting, with some bonuses involved on a week-to-week basis though. With the position so deep though, who are some of the potential sleepers this season in fantasy football at the wide receivers position?
Jerry Jeudy, Denver Broncos
Jerry Jeudy will be the second wide receiver on the Denver Broncos roster right behind Courtland Sutton. Jeudy missed some time last season with an ankle injury. He has the talent to be a primer receiver in the NFL and will finally have a quarterback to get him the football in Russell Wilson. Denver’s offense is going to score a bunch of points this season.
In 10 games last season, Jerry Jeudy caught 38 passes for 467 yards receiving and zero touchdowns. Expect those numbers to skyrocket this upcoming season.
Gabriel Davis, Buffalo Bills
Gabriel Davis was fourth on the Buffalo Bills depth chart a season ago behind Emmanuel Sanders and Cole Beasley. Davis will be the number two wide receiver on the roster behind Stefon Diggs for quarterback Josh Allen. Gabriel Davis had a coming-out party in the postseason. He is going to be a headache to cover this season.
Davis played in all 16 games last season and caught 35 passes for 549 yards and six touchdowns. Some of those numbers are going to go up big time for him.
Treylon Burks, Tennessee Titans
Treylon Burks will be one of the top rookie wide receivers in fantasy football this season. Not a lot of people are expecting much out of him because Tennessee traded A.J. Brown in the offseason to the Philadelphia Eagles. Whether you like or not, Burks is the number one wide receiver option for quarterback Ryan Tannehill. Burks will be force-fed and be fine.
Burks played his college football at Arkansas. He caught 66 passes for 1,104 yards receiving and 11 touchdowns. He also ran the football for 112 yards on 14 carries and a score.
