After a slow stretch from 2013 to 2017 where Davante Adams was the only third-year wide receiver to crest 200 points for the first time, the last two seasons brought Tyler Boyd, Chris Godwin, and Cooper Kupp into the ranks of the elite. And Godwin and Kupp didn’t just break out. They scored 270 points a piece, capitalizing on the promise of earlier seasons and helping their owners to fantasy titles. Should Godwin and Kupp reinvigorate our interest in third-year WRs?

If you’re a Wrong Read fanatic, you know that the exploitable relationship between WR age and opportunity is one of the biggest edges in fantasy. And if you’re a long-time reader of the Breakout Series, you know that targeting second-year WRs is the key to fantasy titles. But there’s just as important a reason to also own third-year candidates.

Third-year breakouts still trail second-year breakouts by a wide margin, but owners targeting third-year receivers often land mega-breakouts that balance the draft risk. In Part 3 of the WR Breakout Series, we’ll delve into their key characteristics. What traits should you buy and who should you avoid?
