Rookie Receivers - Dynasty Sleepers

Here's a list of WRs to target after the 3rd round in your Rookie Draft or in Free Agency:

Eagles WRs - John Hightower and Quez Watkins

The Eagles used this off-season to address their biggest need; receivers. They traded for Marquise Goodwin and drafted Jalen Reagor with the 21st overall pick. Then they used their 5th round pick on Hightower out of Boise State and a 6th round pick on Watkins out of Southern Miss. With DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffery battling both age and injuries, the starting jobs are up for grabs.

Watkins had the 2nd fastest 40 time at the combine with a 4.35. Hightower ran a 4.43, which is the same time as Justin Jefferson and slightly faster than Jerry Jeudy.

Darnell Mooney - Bears

The Bears drafted this 5-10, 175 pound speedster out of Tulane in the 5th round. Mooney had the 3rd fastest time at the combine with a 4.38 and added a 37 inch vertical to go with it. Mooney had a very durable college career by playing in 46 games over 4 years for Tulane. His speed, ability to make big plays, and durability should help him have a productive NFL career.

Ravens WRs - Devin Duvernay and James Proche

Duvernay was drafted in the 3rd round by the Ravens after running a 4.39 and weighing in at 200 pounds at the combine. He had an absolute monster year at Texas during his senior season. Duvernay had 106 catches, 1,386 receiving yards, and added 10 total touchdowns last year. He's also stepping into one of the most high powered offenses in the NFL. He should not fall to the 5th round. His ADP is the 4th round, but you may need to reach for him at the end of the 3rd if you really want him.

The Ravens used a 6th round pick on Proche, who also had a monster senior season. He had 111 catches, 1,225 receiving yards, and 15 tds last year. He finished his 4 year career at SMU with 301 catches, 39 touchdowns, and 51 yards shy of 4,000 receiving yards.

Joe Reed - Chargers

The Chargers used a 5th round pick on the 6-0, 225 pound Senior out of Virginia. Reed had 77 catches for almost 700 yards and added 7 touchdowns last season. Although his college stats don't jump off the page, he has fallen into a perfect situation. He'll be able to use his 4.47 speed to get open on short routes across the middle, which the Chargers love to use. With the lack of depth at the WR position, he should see immediate playing time.

Freddie Swain - Seahawks

Swain is a 6-1, 200 pound 6th round pick out of Florida. He only had 500 receiving yards and 7 touchdowns last season, but he shows a ton of potential at the next level. With Russell Wilson, any Seahawks WR can be the next big thing. Is this the next Sleeper in Seattle?

Other options:

Gabriel Davis - Bills, 6-2, 215 pounds

Dezmon Patman - Colts, 6-4, 225 pounds

Collin Johnson - Jaguars, 6-6, 225 pounds

Isaiah Coulter - Texans, 6-2 200 pounds
