Year 2 has always been a big year for wide receivers, and last year’s sophomore class certainly did not disappoint: four different players eclipsed the breakout threshold of 200 PPR points, the most since 2015, rewarding owners who took advantage of perhaps the biggest edge in fantasy football. Success doesn’t come cheap though, as all the previous breakouts from the 2018 draft class are being picked in the top six rounds.

Two of those WRs come with late fourth-round ADPs: Courtland Sutton and Calvin Ridley. Sutton, one of last year’s top values, broke out in a big way in 2019, but can he join other second-year breakout stars like DeAndre Hopkins in 2015 and Dez Bryant in 2012 in reaching the vaunted 300-point threshold in his third season?

Ridley broke out as a rookie but regressed to below 200 points in his sophomore campaign. Will he be able to bounce back and join players like Anquan Boldin, who returned to glory as the WR4 in Year 3? While both Sutton and Ridley should be productive players in 2020, one has a much clearer path to fantasy superstardom than the other.
