Andre Johnson and Other Cheap Number-One WR Targets for RB-RB-RB Drafting
With all the talk on RotoViz and on Twitter these days about going RB-RB-RB in the first three rounds of your draft, I figure it’s more important than ever to help you find wide receivers in the later rounds who could produce like legitimate starters. I think of production via the colloquial “talent+opportunity” equation, and I can think of no better way to represent the “opportunity” variable than as pass targets. And since no site that I’m aware of produces pass target projections, I’m going to go with the next best thing – receptions! Full-blown point projections take into account YPR and TDs (both of which can be highly variable) so, I thought it would be worthwhile to just look for places to find a lot of receptions, even if the experts aren’t projecting a lot of yards and touchdowns. As you PPR-league guys know, receptions in and of themselves can be quite helpful in finding later-round WR values.
