With the arrival of NFL training camp come the final chances to acquire players at some of their best possible prices. Not long into training camp, rumors about players will begin circulating and ADPs will rise.
As these ADPs rise, we’ll begin to get the sense that we may have been criminally low on some guys — players we viewed as being nothing more than a second or third fiddle could have a chance to see every-down roles. Other times we are low on guys because we didn’t go deep enough in our research.
Perhaps we ignored end of season trends, or just didn’t look closely enough at their 2019 body of work that could suggest an impending breakout. Regardless of what we have or haven’t done, it’s still early enough to change course.
This article looks at wide receivers entering their third season who showed favorable upside in 2019, and that the market is currently too low on heading into August. While we only have one full month of drafting left, a closer look at these players could convince us that a 2020 breakout is on the horizon.

- 10-plus YPR
- 10th round BB10 ADP or later (2020)
