2022 NFL Fantasy Football Season WR Sleeper Picks

By Jeff Stinger

As always, drafting reliable wide receivers in one’s fantasy football draft could be trivial, especially with the NFL still being a pass-happy league. That being said, finding a sleeper WR gem in the middle-to-late rounds of the draft is just as pivotal as locking down a true top-tier WR1 option. We’ve come up with a list of five wideouts worth keeping tabs on as possibly league-winning moves if these players are picked up at the right time.

Top 5 WR Sleepers in the 2022 Fantasy Football Season

Gabriel Davis (Bills)

No other wide receiver boosted his fantasy draft capital thanks to a magnificent postseason as Buffalo’s Gabriel Davis. The former fourth-round pick out of UCF connected with (+650) front-runner NFL MVP candidate Josh Allen for a total of 10 receptions, 242 receiving yards, and a whopping five touchdown catches over his last two playoff starts. Davis’ four TD catches in the wild Bills-Chiefs AFC Conference Game showdown put his name on the fantasy map and is slowly climbing his way up the online pre-draft rankings as a top-20 WR candidate.

Amon-Ra St. Brown (Lions)

Speaking of fourth-round picks, USC’s Amon-Ra St. Brown had himself quite a rookie season in the Motor City, finishing the second half of the 2021 season strong with a total of 90 catches, 912 receiving yards, and six offensive touchdowns. Although the Lions’ passing game will still be limited with Jared Godd under center, nobody comes close to St. Brown’s skill and reputation in Detroit, which is why he’s an intriguing reach of a pickup as a high-upside WR2 despite ranking somewhere between 30th and 35th-overall amongst all wide receivers in pre-draft rankings.

Jerry Jeudy (Broncos)

Jerry Jeudy’s sophomore campaign in the big leagues was mired by a high ankle sprain and zero trips to the end zone. Thankfully, Russell Wilson has arrived as the savior of Mile High after the Broncos have struggled to find their next starting quarterback. Wilson is a significant upgrade at that, with Jeudy and fellow wideout Courtland Sutton being the biggest benefactors from Russ’ arrival. In turn, Jeudy has better value than Sutton, with the latter being a borderline top-20 wide receiver and the former having more mid-to-late-round sleeper value just inside the top 30.

Allen Robinson II (Rams)

Eight-year veteran Allen Robinson II also has a better play-caller throwing him the rock this season, but it was he who had to move to a new location. The Rams (+975 favorites to win Super Bowl 57) signed the former Pro Bowl selection to a three-year deal and Robinson is now freed from the shackles of mediocre QBs from his relatively lengthy stints in Chicago and Jacksonville. The 28-year-old has three 1,000-yard receiving seasons in his career, and a fourth could easily be attained by him now that Matthew Stafford is his partner in crime and for him to finally shine under the media spotlight as the successor to Odell Beckham Jr., who also revitalized his career in Los Angeles.

Drake London (Falcons)

Outside of multi-tool talent Cordarrelle Patterson, Atlanta’s receiving corps was extremely barren. That’s where rookie wide receiver Drake London steps in. The Falcons selected London with the eighth overall pick at the 2021 NFL Draft and is another former USC Trojan like the aforementioned St. Brown who’s expected to turn a rebuilding franchise around. London is currently flying off mock drafts in the later rounds as a fringe top-40 wideout, yet many fail to recognize that he’s likely the Falcons’ best receiving threat, especially with Calvin Ridley’s NFL career still up in the air due to a suspension.
