We talked about crazy deep sleepers in the PPR running backs, so let’s keep that up here.
Derek Hagan takes over as the No. 3 receiver for the Titans with Justin Hunter’s departure. He’s got 8 catches, 129 yards and a touchdown in limited targets this season. More interestingly, he has a 25-yard catch, a 2-39 game and a 2-45 game. It’s a long shot, but maybe he provides the long threat Hunter couldn’t.
Here’s another maximum risky, super-long shot: Cordarrelle Patterson. Wait, come back. No, I’m not kidding. Just give me a couple words. Patterson is an unbelievable talent, I think the whole fantasy community can agree on that. We can also agree he’s raw. However maybe losing his starting gig to Charles Johnson and only seeing three snaps last week provides a wakeup call. Both Patterson and Jarius Wright face a New York Jets team allowing 54.4 yards per game to opposing No. 3 and 4 wide receivers.
Obviously, if he only plays three snaps again he’s a bust, but nobody in their right mind is going to roster him, he has the talent to turn any play into a touchdown and he’s minimum-priced at Draft Kings.
