NFL Fantasy Football Rookie Sleepers From 2016 NFL Draft Offensive Skill Positions

If you’re struggling at the wide receiver position in your fantasy football league, especially in a PPR league, take a look at the receivers drafted this year.  So far, it has been a deep receiving draft class, with standouts below:

  • Corey Coleman (2 tds last game)
  • Sterling Sharpe (first career 100 yard game last week)
  • Tajae Sharpe (clear #1 WR on Titans, played all 67 offensive snaps last week)
  • Will Fuller (back to back 100 yard games to start his career)

These wideouts likely are no longer available on the waiver wire, but keep an eye out for the other highly drafted rookies that’s just settling in, you can likely get them on the cheap.
