Jordan Matthews, ADP: 11.09
Funny that two guys on this list are rookies, despite the fact that we usually avoid rookie WRs. The case for Jordan Matthews is simple: he’s a very talented WR, he’s on a really good Eagles offense, and he’s cheap. It doesn’t hurt that beat writers can’t stop talking about him. Even LeSean McCoy said, “Sky’s the limit for that kid, for sure… I’m very optimistic about his career.”
Aaron Dobson, ADP: 12.02
Dobson’s current foot injury is keeping his ADP down. Don’t be scared away – sometimes ADP can help lower the price on players despite the injury having little to no effect on the player during the season. Like Julio Jones. Dobson, if healthy, will be the Patriots’ starting ‘X’ WR. His RotoViz freak score of 76 shows that Dobson has a very solid speed/size combination; we can classify him as another cheap investment on a really good offense.
Justin Hunter, ADP: 12.04
At 6’4”, 203 lbs. Justin Hunter is a special athlete. Titans WRs coach Shawn Jefferson considers Justin Hunter “the receiver that puts us in the playoffs.” Titans OC Jason Michael believes that “the sky’s the limit” for Hunter. We know that WRs often break out in their 2nd year – think Josh Gordon and Alshon Jeffery last season. Hunter has tremendous upside for a late round selection.
Marqise Lee, ADP: 14.06
With Cecil Shorts out, Marqise Lee should slowly rise up fantasy owner’s draft boards. Despite being a little undersized, Lee proved at a young age that he has all kinds of ability. He did struggle later in his college career when he was hampered by injury. Now healthy, the Jags are “finding ways to feed (Lee) the ball.” He has a chance to lead all rookies in receptions despite being selected in the middle of the 14th round.
