Jamison Crowder (WR, NYJ) - 2019 Fantasy Football Sleeper


BALLER MOVE: Target Around ~140 Overall

Current ADP: ~170

Jamison Crowder is currently the WR55 in RotoBaller's PPR rankings. He has an ADP of around 170 and experts are drafting him at an average overall position of 142. All of this for someone who has racked up the 37th-most PPR points since 2016 and has produced more points per game than Mohamed Sanu (ADP 192), and more points per season than Julian Edelman(ADP 44) in that span.

What is making Crowder fall so much in draft boards is his recent 2018 season. Playing in Washington (he's now a New York Jet), he only played nine games and finished the season with 82.8 PPR points. Even with that, he was second (only behind Josh Doctson, who played 15 games) in points for the Redskins, which doesn't speak good of the team's offense.

Crowder brings a lot of upside in PPR scoring leagues given how he is used on short passes, increasing his chance to amass receptions. On top of that, he had his best season in terms of Yards After Catch last year at 7.0. In a new scenario with the Jets, it is expected that he sees an uptick in opportunities.

The highest draft position Crowder is being drafted right now is around 37, which would make him a borderline WR3 and a starting option in the FLEX position. If he can have a healthy year, though, I don't see the reason he can't feature prominently in the Jets offense and turn into a WR2-level producer. His points pro-rated to a 16-game season, and a little bump up in targets/receptions/yards could easily put him around the 185 points mark joining much more pricey receivers.
