2016 Fantasy Football - Late-Round Wide Receivers







By Chet Gresham - @Chet_G
Follow @walterfootball for updates.

Below, I have compiled a list of very late-round wide receivers to target in your fantasy drafts. You'll see their ADPs near their names and my analysis that follows.

J.J. Nelson, Cardinals - WR 96, 305 overall
Nelson is one of the best deep-pass receivers in the league, but is currently the odd man out in Arizona with Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Floyd and John Brown ahead of him. The reason I like Nelson as a flier is due to his ability, Bruce Arians and Carson Palmer. If anything were to happen to the receivers in front of him, Nelson would immediately have some value as a home-run hitter.

Jamison Crowder, Redskins - WR 86, 289 overall
Crowder has plenty of competition this season with Josh Doctson now with Washington, but Crowder is going to be tough to unseat from his slot position, where he has good route running and hands, both of which helped him to 59 receptions as a rookie. I'll only take a flier on him in PPR leagues, but I believe Cousins likes him and will continue to use him.

Sammie Coates, Steelers - WR 74, 197 overall
Coates is probably my favorite flier this year. Martavis Bryant is suspended for the year, and Markus Wheaton is just another guy, whereas Coates is a physical freak with the ability to shine and take Wheaton's job. All reports are that Coates really stepped up his commitment to the game this offseason and offensive coordinator Todd Haley noticed, saying he's had a "tremendous offseason." I could see Coates and Wheaton hurting each other's numbers, but I like Coates' upside more and he can be had later in drafts.

Chris Hogan, Patriots - WR 68, 187 overall
Trying to find a non-Julian Edelman wide receiver for fantasy on the Patriots can be a tough task, but I think Hogan has a good shot at winning significant time in their offense. Edelman and Danny Amendola have been out due to injuries, and during that time Hogan has looked like the best receiver on the field according to the Boston Herald's Jeff Howe, who is usually a reliable source of information. It's always tough to know what offense the Patriots will run, and if they were to go to more two-tight end sets, it would hurt Hogan, but I think he's in their plans, especially if they have anymore injury concerns from Edelman or Amendola.



Phillip Dorsett, Colts - WR 66, 175 overall
The Colts let Coby Fleener go this offseason and look to use more three-wide receiver sets this year, which is good news for Dorsett as the third receiver on the team. He has plenty of ability, but of course, will be behind T.Y. Hilton and Donte Moncrief. Even then, this offense should throw enough to give Dorsett some value in deeper leagues, but his real value comes if either of those guys ahead of him is injured, because this offense is going to be a great on to mine fantasy points from and Dorsett would be right up there.

Devin Funchess, Panthers - WR 65, 175 overall
Funchess has been getting a lot of praise for his work this offseason. He seems poised to be the No. 2 receiver behind Kelvin Benjamin this season and could even overtake him if he continues to improve. Funchess looked good at the end of last season and has continued that into the offseason. As a converted tight end, Funchess had a steep learning curve coming into the NFL, and it appears he's above the curve now.

Kamar Aiken, Ravens - WR 54, 174 overall
Aiken isn't flashy, but he's reliable, and for the Ravens, that's exactly what they need. Breshad Perriman and Steve Smith are both hurting to some degree, while Aiken is one of the few players on the team who we can depend on right now. I expect another strong season from him despite the addition of Mike Wallace and possibilities of Smith and Perriman staying healthy.
