This season, there seems to be a lot more wide receiver sleepers than usual. In the 2011 fantasy football season, there are sure to be three or four WRs that come out of nowhere and shine. Here’s our look at the 2011 wide receiver sleepers.
Chad Ochocinco, New England Patriots
Yes, Chad Ochocinco is annoying. Yes, Chad Ochocinco has slowed down. But he has Tom Brady passing him the ball — which could make him elite.
Lee Evans, Baltimore Ravens
Joe Flacco and Lee Evans are a perfect match: a big arm and a big play wide receiver.
Plaxico Burress, New York Jets
Plaxico Burress has looked good in preseason. If he’s even 75% of what he used to be, he’ll be a fantasy football steal.
Danario Alexander, St. Louis Rams
Whoever emerges as Sam Bradford’s number one target with the Rams will be 2011 fantasy football gold. That may very well be Danario Alexander.
