2020 Fantasy Football Draft Kit

2020 Fantasy Football Deep Wide Receiver Targets

on

In our 2020 Fantasy Football Deep Wide Receiver Targets, the main focus is going to be identifying wide receivers that you can draft late in your leagues that have high upside or are good plug and play guys during bye weeks.

The key to identifying a potential sleeper or diamond in the rough is the opportunity they have to succeed. Did a player ahead of them get hurt, opt-out or sign elsewhere in the offseason are all things to look for.

The ADP (average draft position) of these players is all 200 or more according to our friends over at Fantasy Pros and these are based on a PPR based scoring system.

You can see where our Staff has them ranked in our 2020 Rankings.

Steven Sims, Washington Football Team (ADP 294/WR 81)

Sims makes this list based on sheer opportunity. The WR corps in Washington was already looking pretty barren. Then Kelvin Harmon went down with a season-ending injury. With Terry

McLaurin as the only established WR and the fact that Washington will probably be playing from behind a lot, there will be a lot of balls coming Sims way. He did flash some potential as a rookie, catching 34 balls for 310 yards and four touchdowns.

Parris Campbell, Indianapolis Colts (ADP 215/ WR 69)

The former second-round pick in 2019 finally seems to be fully healthy headed into this season. Combine that with TY Hilton already hampered with an injury, Campbell should see targets early and often. The slot is the perfect spot to utilize his 4.3 speed on the underneath routes, and that is exactly where he will line up week one.

Danny Amendola, Detroit Lions (ADP312/WR 109)

After coming off a season in which he caught 62 balls, Amendola may not seem like much of a sleeper. However, the only wide receiver the team signed in the off-season, Geronimo Allison, opted-out of the season. With Stafford back and healthy, Amendola is primed to man the slot in Denver.

Josh Reynolds, Los Angeles Rams (ADP 269/WR 80)

Reynolds was a bit of an afterthought last season in LA, playing primarily in four WR sets, but he set to start as the WR with the departure of Brandin Cooks. When Cooks was hurt, Reynolds played 90% of the offensive snaps. With defenses keying in on Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp, Reynolds should see a lot of single coverage.

Reggie Begelton, Green Bay Packers (ADP 533/ WR 166)

The Packers choose not to draft a WR in the draft and really did not address the position at all in the offseason. One of their only additions, Devin Funchess, opted-out creating one of the shallowest WR corps in the NFL.

Begelton signed with the Packers this offseason from the CFL and has already gained some high praise from his coach for his work ethic. He tore up the CFL in 2019 with 102 receptions, 1,444 yards, and 10 touchdowns. With Rodgers throwing the ball, Begelton is a lotto ticket worth grabbing in the late rounds of your draft based on talent alone.

KJ Hamler, Denver Broncos (ADP 339/WR 96)

Hamler was drafted in the second round by Denver but is overshadowed by their first-round pick Jerry Jeudy. Hamler can line up in the slot and has the speed to break the top off of the defense. He looks like a day one starter who could see a lot of check downs from a young second-year quarterback.

Miles Boykin, Baltimore Ravens (ADP 307/351 WR 88/99)

Boykin has as good of a chance as anyone to emerge as the WR2 in the Baltimore offense. Yes, it is a run-heavy offense, but outside of Marquise Brown, it is a very thin WR group. At 6’4″/220lbs, Boykins is a big target for Lamar Jackson to hit. Only 23 years old, and fully healthy, the former third-round pick has a lot of room to grow in Baltimore.
