5 Wide Receivers to Target With Your Final Picks (2022 Fantasy Football)

K.J. Osborn

Let’s take a look at wide receivers to target late in your fantasy football drafts.

Fantasy Football Redraft Draft Kit

K.J. Osborn (MIN): Consensus ADP – WR78 | 226th Overall
“Minnesota Vikings WR K.J. Osborn flashed at times during the 2021 season, but never more so than when he filled in for Adam Thielen. From Weeks 13-17, the second-year pro averaged 12 half-PPR fantasy points per game to go along with six targets. Osborn also cracked starting lineups as a fantasy WR3 at a 44% clip and posted just one fewer top-24 finish than his veteran teammate during the entire 2021 season. If Thielen starts to break down entering his age-32 season, Osborn would be the prime beneficiary in a more pass-happy, fantasy-friendly Vikings offense under new head coach and play caller Kevin O’Connell. The Rams ran 11 personnel at a league-high 86% of offensive plays last season; Minnesota ran 11-personnel at the fifth-lowest rate in the league.”

Will Fuller (FA): Consensus ADP – WR82 | 252nd Overall
“Will Fuller is still a free agent, but I bet he’ll sign with a team by August, and when that happens, his draft position and consensus ranking will rise, so I’m looking to get ahead of that now. For his career, Fuller has averaged 9.2 yards per target. Over the past five years, Fuller hasn’t played more than 11 games in any season, so he’s the human embodiment of a red flag — but his 166-2,501-22 receiving stat line for the past half-decade prorates to 1,037 yards and nine touchdowns over a 17-game season. You can’t ignore Fuller’s upside at his price.”
Matthew Freedman

Jalen Tolbert (DAL): Consensus ADP – WR67 | 191st Overall
“The Cowboys have 31.1% vacated targets, and 44.4% vacated targets inside the 10-yard line. Most of those targets are WR targets. Amari Cooper is gone, and Michael Gallup is probable to start the season on the PUP list. Tolbert could earn the starting role opposite CeeDee Lamb, and that’s huge in a prolific offense. In every one of his three years in college, he averaged at least 17 yards per catch. In 2021, he was sixth in deep targets. He has very good speed and acceleration.”
Mauricio Gutierrez

Wan’Dale Robinson (NYG): Consensus ADP – WR85 | 261th Overall
“Wan’Dale Robinson’s ADP is set to climb after he’s been setting camp on fire. Take advantage of the field’s oversight. With Sterling Shepard‘s health still up in the air, Robinson could be the Giants’ full-time slot all season. Last year he was fourth in yards per route run and 10th in yards after the catch as the fifth-highest graded collegiate wide receiver, per PFF (minimum 50 targets). In an offense screaming for playmakers, Robinson could challenge for the team lead in targets this season. ”
Derek Brown

Nico Collins (HOU): Consensus ADP – WR90 | 276th Overall
“Nico Collins has oodles of potential. The Texans entrusted two rookies last year to be their QB and X-receiver, with Davis Mills impressing enough to earn the reins going forward. Collins is a big body who wins at contested catches. He comps to Courtland Sutton and even registered higher success rates than Sutton last season, according to Reception Perception. One step forward from both Mills and Collins in 2022 would obliterate their respective ADPs.”
