Each NFL offseason has the potential to leave fantasy managers with more questions than answers. Rookies find themselves on their first official rosters, veteran free agents transition to new squads searching for better pay or a shot at a title, and star players returning from injuries light up social media with rehab workouts.

During this time, we have so much information available, but we often have zero clear answers. Training camp is still weeks away, and the first preseason games have yet to be played. Only then will we have a semi-clear understanding of depth charts, health updates, and various holdouts. Until then, all we can do is speculate. With that in mind, I think fantasy managers must embrace the unexpected and lack of clarity. Here are three wide receivers who, as of today, I believe provide the realistic potential to finish ahead of their current ADP for the 2021 season.

Tyler Boyd – Best Ball ADP (WR36)

The drafting of Ja’Marr Chase in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft pushed Tyler Boyd down the depth chart to battle it out with sophomore sensation Tee Higgins. Higgins completed an impressive rookie season of his own, but Boyd will still produce, especially in PPR leagues. Over his last three seasons, Boyd has averaged a healthy 8.1 targets/game.

While his target volume is likely to take a dip with Chase commanding his fair share, Boyd will still be heavily involved moving forward. The way rookie quarterback Joe Burrow ran the offense last season suggests the Bengals can support three fantasy-relevant wide receivers. While Burrow was under center (Weeks 1-11), only Tom Brady had more passing attempts and completions than Burrow, and Brady played one more game. From a team perspective, the Bengals totaled the most offensive plays during that stretch, even topping the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
