It is pretty clear that drafters are going to emphasize the wide receiver position this year over most other options. Let's close out the position and find some overpriced and underpriced wide receivers.
Note: All answers assume the following criteria:
- Start 1 QB, 2 RBs, 3 WRs, 1 TE
- 4-point passing TDs
- Full PPR
- $200 cap
- 12 teams
Underpriced Wide Receivers
Name one or two wide receivers you feel will be too cheap in salary cap drafts that you'll be chasing.
Ben Cummins: In full PPR, by the time Keenan Allen is nominated, he’ll likely be acquirable for cheaper than he’s worth. Plan accordingly beforehand.
Jason Wood: Tyler Lockett is criminally undervalued in all draft styles due to the arrival of rookie Jaxon Smith-Njigba. While Smith-Njigba likely means Lockett is gone in 2024, he remains a cornerstone of the Seahawks' offense in 2023. Nothing has changed.
Andrew Davenport: I know DeAndre Hopkins has more warts on his fantasy prospects for this year than in years past, but he can still play. The Titans are not making moves like they'll be tanking and turning to Will Levis this year. I don't see Hopkins having a huge year, but his price has slipped since his deal to go to Tennessee. Now it is quite possible he goes for around $12 and can serve as a WR3 for your team at that price.
Amari Cooper continues to be a target of mine for his price in the upper teens or low twenties. Last year's WR10 in PPR (WR16 in points per game) is set up for another strong season, and rostering him as a WR2 for around $20 feels like a free square.
Jeff Bell: Starting at the top with Cooper Kupp, a healthy version has proven to be WR1. Jaylen Waddle stands out as a player viewed as the #2 who could outperform his value. Brandon Aiyuk, DJ Moore, Jaxon Smith-Njigba, and Quentin Johnston are other values I like on Footballguys salary cap values.
