Van Jefferson (WR-LAR), Gabriel Davis (WR-BUF), Tyler Johnson (WR-TB) - All three of these second year receivers have the goods to be everyweek fantasy starts in their potent pass offenses, they just don’t have the opportunity. That can change on any play if a starter gets hurt, and for dynasty leagues, they will eventually get their day in the sun. All three are about as cheap as they will get in dynasty, and they might be free in redraft leagues. We don’t think about injury upside for receivers very often, but this trio has enough to be compelling.
Darren Waller (TE-LV) - Waller has been on a bit of a cold streak since a massive season opener against the Ravens. At that point, it looked like he was going to join Travis Kelce atop the fantasy tight end rankings, but since then he hasn’t had a game of note in fantasy leagues, and his numbers are trending down. That should change this week against the Broncos, who gave up a 9-117 line to Waller on the last day of the 2020 regular season and notoriously have trouble covering tight ends. This is probably your last chance to buy low on Waller if you have a hole at tight end.
Laviska Shenault Jr (WR-JAX) - Shenault is a long term buy low - that is, we can’t be sure that we’ll be able to count on him at any point this year, but he absolutely has the talent and ability to become a strong weekly play once there is stability around him. The deep ball from Trevor Lawrence in Week 4 showed Shenault’s speed to get downfield and ball skills to adjust to the improvisational throw, something Lawrence won’t forget once a real adult is in charge of this football team and setting him and the rest of this young team up for growth, and hopefully eventually, success.
