2012 Three Year Wide Receivers
This list contains some hidden gems for 2012
July 19, 2012
In our classic article, Three Year Wide Receiver 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 third year wide receivers in the mid to late rounds of your fantasy football draft. The
statistical mean, median, and mode indicate the third year is optimum, and with that in mind, we offer this handy list showing all three year wide receivers
for the 2012 fantasy football season.
In this list, we have denoted 2012 third 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 2012, we have highlighted those players with a yellow background.
Yellow Background - Three year wide receivers with breakout potential for 2012.
Gray Background - Three year wide receivers that have already had breakout year.
