6 PPR WR Sleepers

By Kevin English 9:08am EDT 8/2/19


The WR position is historically deep.

What’s that mean for fantasy drafting? You can attack RBs earlier in drafts, especially in best-balls where workhorses are extra valuable.

Quite simply: The mid-to-late rounds are ripe with guys able to jump into -- and perhaps beyond -- WR3 range.

Of course, you still need to pinpoint your top targets. So let’s get to it — 6 PPR sleepers boasting rosy combinations of talent, volume and efficiency.


Trey Quinn, Washington

Quinn’s coming off the board at WR80 in recent best balls on PlayDraft.com.

That’s a true sleeper.

You won’t find another WR with a path to 100 targets in Quinn’s range. Just look at Washington’s WR depth:

Josh Doctson

Paul Richardson

Brian Quick

Terry McLaurin (rookie)

Kelvin Harmon (rookie)

The list includes 2 rookies — 3rd and 6th-rounders — and a trio of pass-catchers with lengthy injury histories. The latter description also applies to TE Jordan Reed.

Quinn’s drawn media praise for his acrobatic catches and route-running ability. WR coach Ike Hilliard shared the following observation, per Redskins.com:

"Trey's a good player, man. I've said it for a couple of months now. It's his job in the slot, he's going to dominate it. The world will see.”

Locked into the slot role, Quinn’s an ideal late-round stash.
