Donte Moncrief (ADP: WR #67)

Averaging 306 passing yards per game, the Colts flash a talented receiving corps and Donte Moncrief is no exception. Bolstered by the addition of the versatile veteran Frank Gore, the Colts will feature an elite passing game as they try to make another deep run into the playoffs. Moncrief collected a modest 444 yards as a rookie, but has a high ceiling due to his solid frame and speed. Though playing time will sometimes be hard to come by after the Colts signed Andre Johnson, Moncrief’s flashes of potential will make him a solid WR3 that will reel in big points by surprise.

Martavis Bryant (ADP: WR #28)

Despite his 4-game suspension, Martavis Bryant has the potential to be a fantasy steal during the upcoming season after exploding for eight touchdowns in ten games as a rookie last season. Scoring a touchdown once every six times he was targeted, the former fourth-round selection out of Clemson projects to be one of Big Ben’s favorite red-zone targets. Only five players saw more targets in the ten games that Bryant played. He’s a touchdown machine with tremendous upside and is a comfortable regular WR2 play.

Victor Cruz (ADP: WR #35)

The former fantasy star, whose season was cut short by a torn patellar tendon, has solid potential to have a rebound year. Projected as the 50th receiver to be taken off of the boards, Cruz’s production has slowly deteriorated year by year since 2011, and his ceiling is even further limited by the rising stardom of one Odell Beckham Jr. However, if he stays healthy, Cruz is a solid target for Eli Manning as a #2 receiver. Though he is questionable to return by the start of the season, fantasy owners can hope that Cruz can remain healthy for the entirety of the season; if so, Cruz could be a steal.

Nelson Agholor (ADP: WR #30)

Taken 20th in this year’s draft, Agholor, according to some NFL executives, already shows potential to start as the Eagles’ top receiver. In a dangerous Chip Kelly offense, Agholor will take the helm of a deep receiving corps. Collecting 1,313 yards and 12 TDs at USC last year, the rookie will provide fantasy owners with a solid point production, getting a good amount of targets week-by-week. Projected as the 34th receiver to be drafted, Agholor is an absolute steal.
