The more picks there are in a fantasy draft, the greater the opportunity to separate yourself from the rest of the pack. This can go in one of two directions, a positive outcome or a negative one. We want to focus on a positive outcome. You can do this by drafting players who will make an impact that you can potentially insert into your weekly lineup. Finding the right players to draft makes all the difference. Let's take a look at late-round wide receivers to target.
Breshad Perriman, NY Jets
The Jets and fantasy offense don't exactly go hand in hand, but Breshad Perriman, the former first-round pick had a strong second half to the 2019 season. Only Michael Thomas and DeVante Parker had more fantasy points in a PPR setting than Perriman from Week 13 on last year. Some of that could be due to the Buccaneers' high-volume passing offense, but at some point, we must credit Perriman for executing. Can he do it again in 2020 with the Jets? Did his confidence soar to the point where he knows he can compete with the league's best? If the answer is yes or maybe, he's worth the gamble as a receiver that you can draft as your WR5.
