1. Jamison Crowder (WAS)
The top spot on this sleepers list of wide receivers for 2017 goes to Jamison Crowder of the Washington Redskins.
Crowder is now the top receiver in Washington after the departures of DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon via free agency. He will be taking full advantage of the extra opportunities this season.
Crowder only got to start in nine games in 2016 and still managed 847 yards and seven touchdowns. This type of production from a third wide receiver is great, and now he has a chance to take that level of play into the top spot on an offense.
Kirk Cousins looked to Crowder often when under pressure, and there will be more of that this season. The Redskins play against some very tough defensive lines in the NFC East in the Giants and Eagles. The quick passing game is what Crowder excels at most, and that puts him over the top, fantasy-wise, this season.
Crowder is going a little higher in fantasy drafts than most of the other players on this list, but he has the potential to be a top-15 receiver. What separates Crowder from most other wide receivers is that he catches nearly everything thrown his way.
In his first two seasons, he has caught 75 and 67 percent of the passes thrown his way, respectively.
Translate those numbers into the role as a top option on a good Redskins offense, and you get fantasy football gold.
