Arizona Cardinals

J.J. Nelson (ADP 189, WR64)
There’s quite a fuss in Arizona over which receiver – outside of Larry Fitzgerald – will offer the most real-world and fantasy value in 2017. Considering Nelson has shown some chemistry with Carson Palmer already (34 catches, 568 yards, six TDs in 2016) and is the closest match to the health-embattled John Brown (both small, outside blazers), my money’s on Nelson.

Atlanta Falcons

Mohamed Sanu (ADP 182, WR63)
Most will point to Taylor Gabriel as the sleeper receiver in Atlanta. But Gabriel is returning from a lower-leg strain, and is a boom-or-bust player no matter what happens in 2017. Sanu, on the other hand, is a reliable veteran who figures to be the WR1-in-waiting behind Julio Jones. Should Jones miss time, which he often does to some degree, Sanu could step up in fantasy on an explosive offense.
