Note: Here’s our original list of 12 sleepers.
Preston Williams, WR, Dolphins
DeVante Parker has missed a week of practice with a “minor undisclosed injury,” per ESPN. It’s probably nothing to worry about. But let’s remember who we’re talking about here: a chronic underachiever and an injury-prone talent prior to 2019.
Williams, of course, needs to overcome his own injury obstacle. And a much more serious one. Recall that he tore his ACL last November. He's recovered smoothly, though, and looks ready to play Week 1. The 6'5 former UDFA is likely to build off a rookie year that included 60+ yards in 4 of 8 games.
With Miami’s target tree bare behind Parker, Williams and Mike Gesicki, Williams brings ample upside as a mid-to-late-round stash.
Bryan Edwards, WR, Raiders
Compared to Davante Adams by Derek Carr, Edwards -- a Round 3 pick -- has worked his way into a starting outside role. And that shouldn't be shocking.
He produced at South Carolina at only 17 years old (44-590-4) with help from plus size (6’3, 212 pounds) and physicality. Those traits have shined at training camp; Vic Tafur of The Athletic noted that HC Jon Gruden has tried to “hide” his love for the rookie in interviews.
That’s especially noteworthy for a HC who loves his veterans.
Carrying the upside to see 90-100 targets, Edwards looks like a potential year 1 contributor to fantasy squads.
