Editor’s Note: Make sure to also check out 9 PPR RB Sleepers.
We kicked off our Team-by-Team Backfield Breakdown series by looking at the link between RB volume and fantasy production. The connection is nearly as strong for WRs:
That’s the correlation between targets and PPR points for the top 50 PPR WRs for the last 3 seasons. More volume = more fantasy points.
So when we’re looking for WR sleepers, especially for PPR leagues, we’re hunting for volume. Specifically, let’s uncover guys with a shot at 100+ targets. 114 WRs have reached that threshold over the past 3 years. 94 of them have finished among the top 36 in PPR points. That’s 82.5%.
These 5 WRs are going in the 10th round or later in recent MyFantasyLeague.com drafts and have a real shot at 100 targets and top 36 PPR production.
