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:
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.
