5 Late-Round Wide Receivers to Target in Fantasy Football Drafts in 2015
For the casual fantasy football manager, the latter rounds of the draft are the least exciting part of the season. With marquee names long gone, it's a time to let your guard down, and perhaps a chance to switch over to auto-draft status while you search your fridge for a snack as defenses and kickers start coming off the board.
But for seasoned fantasy football veterans, we know that these finals rounds are when championship teams are forged.
Last season, game-changing picks were drafted in these late rounds and had average draft positions (ADP) in or near the triple digits. Odell Beckham, Jr. (178th ADP), Mike Evans (109th), Golden Tate (77th), DeAndre Hopkins (121st), and Kelvin Benjamin (89th) were drafted well outside the first six rounds of the draft, yet finished 1st, 10th, 13th, 15th, and 17th in fantasy points per game by season's end.
It's finding these hidden gems in your draft that can transform your team from a playoff hopeful into a title contender.
So as drafts for the upcoming season get underway, which undervalued players have the potential to help bring your team a championship in 2015?
