The most undervalued wide receiver in fantasy football this season is a guy who hasn't actually stepped foot on the field in over a year.
That's right: Per Pro Football Focus, your best value grab of your draft will be Pittsburgh Steelers lanky wide receiver Martavis Bryant, the man who was just recently cleared to participate in NFL preseason activities.
Here's what PFF said:
Don’t go telling all your friends, but there is justification for Bryant as a backend WR1 in fantasy. His career numbers bear it out. Bryant’s career 16-game pace would have seen him finish as last year’s WR8 in standard scoring (167.9 points) and WR11 in PPR (231.2). Heck, let’s bake in some regression and knock 25 percent off his TD rate. Bryant’s 16-game average would still equate to last year’s WR11 in standard (151.9) and WR12 in PPR (215.2). Touchdown scoring aside – Bryant led all WRs in fantasy points per snap in 2014 and was third in 2015 – he ranked seventh in yards per route run across his only two seasons. This is a guy who said he never used to train in the offseason, and we haven’t even accounted for any progression in his overall skillset entering his de facto Year Three with refocused dedication to his craft and the proverbial chip on his shoulder.
