Fantasy Football WR Sleeper List

Sleeper picks can make or break anyone fantasy owners season. Here's a look at Tyler Baddick's list of great value selections.

When looking for sleepers in fantasy football, you have to look at best value for these players. When you can get almost the same amount of points by a sleeper pick(late round selection) than one of your mid round selections, that is excellent value for your team. Sleepers are crucial for every fantasy owner and it can really make or break your season. These sleepers are graded off of offensive scheme, schedule, and their ability to play the position.

Jarvis Landry- Not even ranked as a top 30 receiver heading into this year, there is a ton of value for Mr. Landry. Showing elite skills as a slot receiver last season, Jarvis had an amazing rookie season. With the departure of Mike Wallace, I believe that Jarvis will lead the Dolphins in targets this upcoming season. If you are able to get a top target on any team, especially in the later rounds, this is tremendous value. All fantasy owners should keep a close eye on Jarvis as one of their top sleeper plays heading into this season.

Cody Latimer- Cody was one of my huge sleepers last season but ended up not doing anything. But with the departure of Julius Thomas, I expect Cody to play a vital role in the Denver offense this season. He will be worth a shot as your last pick in the draft or a waiver pick up during week 1. Latimer certainly will be someone to keep an eye on especially when week 1 approaches.

Dorial Green-Beckham- Dorial had to take a seat and miss out on all of last season in college. But before his troubles, Dorial was arguably the best receiver in all of college football. With megatron physical traits, look for Dorial to be a mismatch for any corner in the NFL when dealing with size. He could possibly overtake Kendall Wright as the Titan's number 1 target this year. Doral will be someone you will want to draft in the very late rounds.

Cole Beasley- With the departure of Demarco Murray, I have a feeling that Dallas will throw the ball a little more than last year. Cole really showed improvements the second half of last year and will look to keep building off of that. Especially in a PPR format, Beasley could rack up a solid amount of points with an elite Tony Romo throwing him the ball. Cole will be someone to look for once the draft is over and around week 1.

Victor Cruz- Victor Cruz was an elite wideout before he tore his ACL. But with him expected to be ready when the season starts, Cruz has outstanding value with him going outside the 10th round. With Odell Beckham opposite of Cruz, this could be one of the most deadly passing attacks in the NFL next year. Do not forget about Mr. Cruz, as he will be ding plenty of salsa dancing in the end zone next season.
