The Hunt For a Breakout WR

Le’Veon Bell. David Johnson. Ezekiel Elliott. We all know exactly who is going to be at the top of the draft boards this year. But you don’t win a Fantasy Football championship in round 1. You win it in the middle rounds by grabbing sleepers or breakout players before your rivals have the chance. But how do you keep from getting burned by selecting flops with these picks? Trust the experts at This year, they have identified a breakout player with WR1 potential written all over him.

The Fantasy are putting their money on Martavis Bryant this year. With health on his side for the first time in his young career, Bryant has a real chance to explode in the Steelers high powered offense. In 2014, he snagged 32 grabs on 57 targets with an impressive 8 TD’s (one every four receptions). In 2015, he proved those numbers were no fluke by hauling in 67 receptions and 6 scores (all while being rarely slated as a starter). Unfortunately, 2016 ended up being a big disappointment for owners of Bryant in keeper leagues. He ended up getting himself suspended for the entire year by failing a drug test.

But many experts agree (including that Bryant will be back with a vengeance this year. Now that he is off suspension, health is on his side and light pressure due to the presence of Bell and Brown, there is no reason why he shouldn’t pick up right where he left off. Will he end up in the conversation of WR1 at the end of the year? Time will only tell. But believe in him; And you should too.

(On a side note, it is actually my dream to write a Fantasy Football blog. It has been my intention to explore blogging web sites to start this process. However, if your site is looking for a writer, I would be very interested in learning more about the opportunity. My email address is [email protected] Thank you for your time.)
