Third Year Wide Receivers

Every year there are WR’s that seem to come out of no where to shock, surprise and propel a fantasy team to victory week after week. There are statistics to prove out that WR’s in their 3rd year seem to breakout. Some have done articles on the topic and based upon their statistics it seems like a reasonable reach to go after a quality WR in their 3rd to 5th year and hope to catch a rising star. At this point, since the data has been generally accepted for many years it is just a matter of knowing who is in their third year and what their situation is. Then based on that the predictions on who will be the next breakout WR(s) can be made. We have looked at all of the 3rd year WR’s for 2006 and some are easily dismissed, others have already arrived and then we have some that appear to be on the cusp of having a breakout season in 2006. Below we will go through the list in team order:

Larry Fitzgerald, Arizona Cardinals: He is now entering his 3rd year, but has been exceptional in each of his years since becoming a pro. He would fall into the already there group of WR’s. It is actually scary to think that he can still get better. Some of his numbers from 2005 were due to the team consistantly playing catch up. For 2006, the Cardinals revamped the OL and brought in James to get a running game going. This won’t turn Fitzgerald into a has been, but we would find it difficult for his numbers to get better based upon the situation. His TD’s could improve, but the yardage may not. He is not a surprise on any one’s draft board and will be gone quite early.
