2024 Fantasy Football Hidden Gems

Dontayvion Wicks

2024 Fantasy Football Hidden Gems (July 2):

This is a list of my favorite 2024 fantasy football hidden gems – players who don’t have an opportunity at the moment, but could become steals if circumstances change. All of these players are 16th-round picks or undrafted players according to the Average Draft Position (ADP) found on FantasyPros.com.

The sleepers from 2022 were a hit with George Pickens, Dameon Pierce, Christian Kirk, and Jerick McKinnon. Last year, we had Tank Dell as the No. 2 sleeper. Also on this page were Rashee Rice, Tyjae Spears, and Kendrick Bourne.

Dontayvion Wicks Dontayvion Wicks, WR, Packers. ADP: 16.08.

Dontayvion Wicks had some big games last year when Christian Watson suffered an injury. He caught three passes for 91 yards versus the Chargers, six balls for 97 yards against the Buccaneers, and six receptions for 61 yards and two touchdowns in the season finale versus Chicago. Wicks is a talented player, but is buried on the depth chart. If some Packer receivers were to get hurt, he would likely put together some nice performances again.

RickyPearsall Ricky Pearsall, WR, 49ers. ADP: 18.05.

There was some hype surrounding Ricky Pearsall recently when Brandon Aiyuk seemed likely to be traded. Recent reports suggest that Aiyuk won’t be on the move, so Pearsall is back to being undrafted. This is a mistake because Deebo Samuel tends to get banged up often, so if he or Aiyuk misses time, Pearsall could have some big performances.

Demario Douglas Demario Douglas, WR, Patriots. ADP: 18.07.

Demario Douglas was New England’s top receiver last year after Kendrick Bourne tore his ACL. Given that Bourne is coming off that injury, and Ja’Lynn Polk has no experience, Douglas is expected to lead the Patriots in receiving.

D'Onta Foreman D’Onta Foreman, RB, Browns. ADP: 19.07.

D’Onta Foreman has done well wherever he’s gone. He’s performed well for the Texans, Panthers, and Bears. He’ll have a chance to play in Cleveland because Nick Chubb is coming off a brutal knee injury. Jerome Ford is ahead of him on the depth chart, but it’s not like Ford is all that great. Foreman will also be running behind the best offensive line he’s ever seen in the pros.

Greg Dortch Greg Dortch, WR, Cardinals. ADP: 27.04.

Greg Dortch did nothing in the first half of the season, but had some nice outings in the final two months. He hauled in six passes for 76 yards against the Texans and seven balls for 82 yards at Philadelphia. The catalyst was the Rondale Moore trade. Dortch, an extremely hard worker, projects as Arizona’s starting slot receiver.

Brenden Rice Brenden Rice, WR, Chargers. ADP: 27.05.

People have asked me whom I believe will be the next Puka Nacua. First of all, there may not be another Nacua in a very long time. If there is one this year, however, I think it’s Brenden Rice. The son of Jerry Rice was supposed to be drafted in the third or fourth round, but slipped to the final frame. This is not like the Lakers drafting LeNepotism James; Brenden Rice is a legitimate talent, and it’s not like he’ll have much to compete with in San Angeles.

Andrei Iosivas Andre Iosivas, WR, Bengals. ADP: 28.06.

Andrei Iosivas, a sixth-round pick from 2023, flashed some potential as a rookie. In the final two games, he had a 4-36 line versus the Steelers and then a 5-36 performance against the Browns. This was without Joe Burrow. Iosvias could be very productive if one of Ja’Marr Chase or Tee Higgins were to get hurt.
