In our classic article, Wide Receiver Three Year Rule, we demonstrate statistically how wide receivers often make a dramatic improvement in fantasy football production entering their third year in the league. It is a classic fantasy football draft strategy to target these hidden gems in the mid to late rounds of your fantasy football draft. While the statistical mean, median, and mode indicate the third year is optimum, there is a statistically significant portion of four year wide receivers that have had a breakout season entering their fourth year in the league. With that in mind, we offer this handy list showing all "Four-Year" wide receivers for the 2016 fantasy football season.

In this list, we have denoted 2016 four year wide receivers that have already had a breakout season with a gray background. Since these players have already broken out, they do not represent potential value picks in the mid to later rounds of your draft as they will require a higher draft pick to obtain. However, all other players listed are fair game for consideration and warrant a little further investigation to see if they are breakout candidates this season. To help draw attention to three year wide receivers with upside in 2016, we have highlighted those players with a yellow background.

Table Key:
Yellow Background - Four year wide receivers with breakout potential for 2016.
Gray Background - Four year wide receivers that have already had breakout year.
