Every owner is looking for a bargain in the draft or on the waiver wire to help push their fantasy team to a championship. Whether it is a guy coming off of injury, or a player that has struggled in their current situation. Let us look at 3 possible sleeper/breakout candidate third-year wide receivers that may be able to get you to fantasy football glory.

1. Josh Doctson

Former first-round pick Josh Doctson has yet to live up to his first-round potential. Making this season a make or break season for the 25-year-old receiver. He comes into the 2018 campaign after his first full season last year, in which he caught 35 balls for 502 yards and 6 scores. Doctson finished as the WR49 in standard scoring last year, leaving him room to improve this season.

Doctson is feeling very confident going into his second full year, as he now has experience and understands the pro game. He is expected to come into the regular season as the Redskins WR1, and should see a good share of targets from new quarterback Alex Smith. Smith had his best season as a pro last year, especially with the deep ball. That should bode well for Doctson who can use his elite size to win the 50-50 balls and red zone targets in this Redskins offense. If Doctson can remain healthy and build a strong rapport with Alex Smith, Doctson can easily find his way into a solid WR2 who should rack up 60-75 receptions, 700-900 yards, and 8-10 touchdowns for your fantasy squad.

2. Chester Rogers

The Indianapolis Colts pass game was not great last year without quarterback Andrew Luck, but with the news that Luck is throwing again Colts receivers value will go up. One of those receivers is current Colts WR3, Chester Rogers. Rogers in his only season with Luck caught 19 balls for 273 yards. Sure, that’s not all that impressive but at that point, he was the Colts WR4/5. That shows that the Colts passing offense is much better with Luck taking the snaps. This season the expectations are high for Rogers, as there is no clear WR after TY Hilton to collect targets. If Rogers proves he is that guy, Rogers could be the guy to breakout this season with the possibility of 50-60 receptions, 500-700 yards, with 4-5 touchdowns for the Colts.

3. Tajae Sharpe

The Tennessee Titans 2017 passing game ranked 23rd in the league last season. The Titans did not have any receiver with 75+ catches, 850 or more yards, or more than 5 touchdowns on the season. That should change as the Titans have a new coaching staff that will put a lot of trust into their young receiving corps.
One of those young receivers is third-year pro Tajae Sharpe, who returns after a lost 2017 season, due to a foot injury. Sharpe had a solid rookie season in 2016 catching 41 balls for 552 yards and two touchdowns, finishing as the WR70 in standard scoring leagues.
Sharpe now is set on returning to the Titans this off-season and improving off of his 2016 campaign. Sharpe has been working with Marcus Mariota after practices, trying to build confidence for the 2018 campaign. With the confidence of his quarterback, Sharpe has a  chance of winning the WR3 job. If he does he has the ability to be a 40-55 reception guy with good fantasy potential for a late round/waiver wire pick. Tajae Sharpe is going undrafted in most leagues making him more of a deep sleeper, rather than a breakout candidate. His value will mostly be based on where he lands on the depth chart at the beginning of the season.
