The “Third-year WR breakout” is discussed often. Essentially, if a wide receiver fails to show significant production by year three, most fantasy players give up on them. In this article, I’ll discuss three players who all have breakout potential from the 2017 NFL Draft class of wide receivers. Of course, there are third-year players like Cooper Kupp, Kenny Golladay, Chris Godwin, Mike Williams, and most notably Juju Smith-Schuster who have already broken out and had long stretches of fantasy relevance. You won’t hear about that level of player in this article. The players here have shown some flashes of talent and even production, but have never been a consistent producer for a whole season. I’ll also quote Fantasy Football Calculator’s half PPR ADP as a reference throughout the article.
