Fantasy owners are continually trying to find the next value. We love to find players who we think have a higher perceived value than their current price suggests. While I have taken a different approach in the past and have focused on players I think you should “buy high” on, sometimes the value for individual players is too great to ignore.

As you prepare for your redraft or best-ball leagues, identifying players who are being drafted as the WR3 on their respective teams can be a great, cheap way to find deeper value. The league continues to employ a more pass-heavy approach, which often means a few teams have multiple fantasy-relevant wide receivers who are only an injury away from being every-week starters.

You will notice one significant trend with each of these wide receivers. Each of them finished the year strong compared to their current ADP. While we want to avoid recency bias, it’s important to note some of the underlying reasons for these trends.

Here are three wide receivers that should provide value respective to their current cost.

James Washington – WR77

James Washington offers a unique upside heading into his third season. A mega-producer in college, Washington and the entire Pittsburgh Steelers offense should be much improved this season with the return of a healthy Ben Roethlisberger.

Washington finished last season on a much stronger note than his current ADP would suggest. Despite the inconsistent quarterback play, from Weeks 9-17 he was the WR24 overall. I don’t think many people thought he was a back-end WR2 for the entire second half of last season.
