Kenny Stills, Devante Parker, Albert Wilson - I know, I know. But this could be the year. MIA fields one of the least talented rosters in the NFL which means these guys could be garbage time bargains. Add to this, both Rosen and Fitz aren't gunshy at all and this could finally be the year to invest in MIA receivers.
Albert Wilson is the exception here as I just think he's really good and was criminally underutilized at KC. He has Golden Tateish YAC ability and was breaking out in a big way prior to his season ending injury.
Trey Quinn - Kelvin Harmon? Josh Doctson? Don't care. Trey is by far their best slot receiver, and he's going to be Haskins security blanket as he learns the ropes in the NFL. Quinn outproduced Courtland Sutton after transferring out of LSU's WR deathzone to SMU. When you outproduced a specimen like Sutton you're probably pretty good. A lot better than his Mr. Irrelevant draft capital would say otherwise.
Speaking of SMU receivers... Courtland Sutton is a huge sleeper. What got my attention last offseason was coaches raving about how coachable the kid was. He came out extremely raw last season and the coaching staff still saw enough out of him to ship out Demaryius Thomas. He somewhat fell flat on his face after receiving WR1 treatment after Sanders went down and never proved to be more than a Vertical threat in year 1; but let's go back to the "extremely coachable" narrative from last off season. If the guy is indeed the quick learner he was made out to be, he could be in store for some big things this season. He will be one of my favorite flyers wherever his ADP happens to land.
DaeSean Hamilton gets an honorary notice here as well. My enthusiasm for him will largely depend on how well Sanders comes back from injury.
Tre'quan Smith - Will Fuller makes his bones as the explosive deep threat specialist on a high octane offense. Smith is also an explosive deep threat on a high octane offense. Ted Ginn's presence looms; but that guy's wheels have to fall off sometime; and the history of 34 year old speed receivers is not pretty.
Quincy Enunwa - This guy is a monster. He pulled an elite marketshare last season when healthy.. but that's the problem. The guy always seems to be dinged up. Is that bad luck or is his body not made for this type of abuse? Only time will tell, but after Darnold posted the highest QBR of any QB in teh month of December there exists a case where he's the number 1 receiving threat on a high octane offense. In this best case scenario, Robby Anderson would enter Tre'quan Smith levels of sleeper appeal. I don't believe Robby will overtake Enunwa's target share but I could see a Hopkins-lite/Fuller-lite scenario here.
Christian Kirk: After entering the NFL with a spectacular production profile in college (1,000 yards as a true freshman at Texas A&M!) he put to rest the claims that he couldn't play outside as a rookie. Many people will be gunshy about this guy after the recent acquisitions of Andy Isabella and Hakeem Butler... but those guys are both rookies, and have significantly less impressive resumes coming into the NFL. Larry will still command targets.. but Kirk is the guy to own here.
Honorary mentions: John Brown (BUF), John Ross (CIN), Keelan Cole/Dede Westbrook (JAX), Marquise Goodwin (SF)
