The Fantasy Football WR Sleepers That Sleepers Haven’t Heard Of

So this is my foray into the deepest of deep sleeper wide receivers. This list is primarily for players that have a dynasty team. Though I figure one of these folks could be the Mark Clayton of 2010 (not Brandon Llyod).

Jason Hill WR JAX – He was slop in the three season he spent in SF. However, in JAX there is a serious void at WR. The only legit WR on that team is a short Mike Thomas — he is a mere 5’8″ — less then ideal for a #1 WR.  Jason Hill may lack speed but he is at least a respectable 6’0″ 202 lbs. At the end of last year Hill did catch an average of 60 yards/game. Lets not forget that the midget Thomas will now have the #1 cornerback covering him so his production may dip. The Jags are for sure to be behind in many a games so Hill might catch multiple garbage passes.  

Adrian Arrington WR NO – If Henderson falls out of favor in NO then Arrington’s value skyrockets. I don’t see that happening but stranger things have happened and the Saints are known to surprise people. Arrington is more of a vertical threat and may catch some deep bombs from Breeze— key word here is “may”. He is 6’3″ so he has the height to fight.

Antonio Brown WR PIT – His height is lacking at a mere 5’10” but he has speed similar to another receiver who goes by the name of Mike Wallace. With Ward and Sanders injured Brown may have a chance to move up. The Steelers are obviously worried because they signed a has been Jerricho Cotchery. It is totally feasible for Brown to overtake Cotchery on the depth chart.

Danarius Moore WR OAK – I already did an entire article on him last week – click here for details.  Don’t forget who found him first— the fantasy flukie 🙂

Dezmon Briscoe WR TB – He is fighting for a roster spot and he is winning the war. He caught 4 passes for 60 yards against KC in the first preseason game. He is a big boy weighing in at 210 lbs and has a respectable height of 6’2″. Granted, I never heard of him until this game but with Josh Freeman as his QB and a gimpy Arrelious Benn it may just be the perfect storm.

    Dez Briscoe is going to be a steal in deeper leagues

    Titus Young!!!!

  3. The Fantasy Flukie says:

    I’m more a Torrey Smith guy… But Titus Young is a interesting one— that is if TO doesn’t sign there!

  4. AC Slater says:

    Fluckie Cecil Shorts will be the WR to watch in Jacksonville not Jason Hill. Remmeber where you heard it first.

  5. The Fantasy Flukie says:

    @AC – well, if that is gonna happen he is gonna have to stop bobbling handoffs from Garrad.

  6. […] Brown – He has been on my radar for a couple weeks. I referenced him as a sleeper back on August 16th. I read somewhere that he might be the busiest number 3 receiver in all of the NFL. Well, if that […]

    How was Jason Hill “Slop”? He didn’t play much, but when he did he played well, very few drops- look at stats. You say he lacks speed. In the 2007 Combine he ran the fastest time of any receiver (4.32 in 40) again, go look it up. He is a much better “sleeper” than you think.

    @benito. He is slop, look who is throwing him the ball, Luke McCown?!? Ouch…
