2012 WR Class (1 Viewer)

EBF

Footballguy
I'm always on the lookout for good players that can be had for discount prices. That usually means focusing on young, unproven players who are valued below their talent level. The 2012 WR class presents a lot of options, with 22 receivers taken in the first four rounds (including Josh Gordon).

2012s 1 2 0 0 Josh Gordon Browns Baylor

2012 1 1 5 5 Justin Blackmon Jaguars Oklahoma State

2 1 13 13 Michael Floyd Cardinals Notre Dame

3 1 20 20 Kendall Wright Titans Baylor

4 1 30 30 A.J. Jenkins 49ers Illinois

5 2 1 33 Brian Quick Rams Appalachian State

6 2 11 43 Stephen Hill Jets Georgia Tech

7 2 13 45 Alshon Jeffery Bears South Carolina

8 2 22 54 Ryan Broyles Lions Oklahoma

9 2 31 63 Rueben Randle Giants Louisiana State

10 3 5 68 Devier Posey Texans Ohio State

11 3 6 69 T.J. Graham Bills North Carolina State

12 3 20 83 Mohamed Sanu Bengals Rutgers

13 3 29 92 T.Y. Hilton Colts Florida International

14 4 1 96 Chris Givens Rams Wake Forest

15 4 5 100 Travis Benjamin Browns Miami (FL)

16 4 9 104 Joe Adams Panthers Arkansas

17 4 12 107 Devon Wylie Chiefs Fresno State

18 4 23 118 Jarius Wright Vikings Arkansas

19 4 26 121 Keshawn Martin Texans Michigan State

20 4 27 122 Nick Toon Saints Wisconsin

21 4 39 134 Greg Childs Vikings Arkansas
There are probably some impact players in this group, but as of right now most of these guys can be had for a reasonable price. What do you make of this bunch?

Who are the best players from this group?

Blackmon, Hilton, and Gordon were the most productive, followed by Givens, Wright, and Floyd. Blackmon was the highest pick of the bunch and also the most productive, so I think he'd be my clear choice for the #1 spot. After that things get more hazy. Hilton and Gordon had very good rookie years, but that doesn't guarantee progression in the future. Likewise, the fact that a lot of the rookie receivers had quiet debut seasons doesn't mean they can't blow up in the future, as many other great wideouts have done in the past.

Who represents the best value per cost?

The problem with Blackmon and Gordon is that they won't come cheap. I have tried to get Blackmon in 3-4 leagues to no avail. Everyone who owns Blackmon used an early pick on him. He's valued as a 4th-5th rounder in startups, but the people who actually own him seem to view him as a 2nd-3rd round value. With Gordon, he's become a trendy "next big thing" choice, meaning a lot of the people who are buying/selling are operating under the assumption that he's going to become a big player. So while the upside is there, it's reflected in his cost. In the deals I've seen this offseason he's commanded pretty significant value. It's the same with Hilton and Givens, albeit to a lesser extent.

On the surface, I'd say Floyd is a better value. I think his long term outlook is similar to that of Gordon and Hilton, but he doesn't seem to command as much respect. On paper he might be the best value play of last year's first round RB/WR. I also like the value of Jenkins, Randle, Toon, and Matthews. Not because they're locks to succeed. More so because they're cheap. Jeffery, Graham, Quick, Hill, Posey, and Broyles are also pretty cheap. I don't particularly like any of those players, but if you're a believer they're certainly available for less than superstar prices in most leagues.

Who will take a big step forward in 2012?

The obvious candidates are the guys who did well as rookies. Blackmon, Wright, Gordon, Hilton, and Givens should all be opening day starters for their teams. You have to figure that 1-2 of them will threaten the 1000 yard barrier with a year of experience under their belt. Jeffery, Graham, Quick, and Hill also appear to have good opportunity if they can seize it.

2-3 years from now we will probably look back at this group and know who the gems are. Right now I think a lot of that is up in the air though. I'm Interested to hear your thoughts on this WR class. Who are the best players? Who are the best values? Who, if anyone, are you going after?

I don't think it's worth trading for Blackmon or Gordon. Right or wrong, these guys are heavily valued by their owners. Wright, Hilton and Broyles also fit into this category.

The ones in bold are players I think are undervalued at the moment since they didn't have very good rookie seasons. I imagine most of them could be had for less than what they were drafted for last year. Some like Wylie and Toon may be on the waiver wire. I've even come around a bit on Floyd and drafted him with the equivalent of the 1.10 rookie pick.

By the way, Graham and Adams are total busts and not worthy of a roster spot IMO.
And your reasoning is?
Graham has some of the worst hands I've ever seen. Flat out awful. He looked terrible at the combine but I gave him a pass for having jitters. He dropped at least 3 balls against the Seahawks.Adams is primarily a punt returner who can't hold onto the ball.

If I had to add one of these guys right now, it'd be Randle.

He showed flashes of talent in 2012, enough for me to think that he could be a productive starting WR, but not enough to drive his value higher than when he was drafted.

There's question marks on both guys ahead of him at the moment, with Cruz being an RFA and Nicks having one year left of his rookie deal. While the Giants have said they want both guys back, there is sure to be interest from others as well.

These are the 4 I ended up with. I'm kind of on a size kick at the moment. These are players that could become productive starters, could become red zone specialists or could end up productive & guys targeted in the red zone. Not interested in getting a Receiver that will catch 70 balls with 3 or 4 TDs. These are all guys who could get the catches plus 8-10 TDs if they pan out.

I would buy Jarius Wright and T.Y. Hilton. Although, their value may have temporarily gone up. Jarius is better than A.J. Jenkins and T.J. Graham.

Hilton is good but his price is a 1st now. Jarius could be a good buy but it seems like bad timing considering the Vikings will add at least one WR in the draft.

big fan of this class. :thumbup:

i wasn't a believer of blackmon coming into the NFL... just didn't think he had the speed or strength to cut it. i still don't think he'll be elite but he looked solid and will be a perennial top 15-20 guy in my eyes. i'd buy but the price is way too high in my eyes... i'd actually be looking to sell high if i could, but that's just me.

i'm highest on gordon. i tried to get him where i could last year (spent a 2013 2nd on him as supplemental pick in one league)... i didn't expect him to have as big of an impact as he did. i think he has what it takes to be elite with his size, speed, strength and ball skills. i've offered the 1.01 for him in a devy league (so patterson would be the likely pick) and was turned down. i'll likely be upping the anti, but will probably wait until after the draft. he's a buy buy buy for me - but the price is high.

i'm still a big believer in jeffrey and think he could also be elite. he was my favorite WR in this class (before Gordon entered into the supplemental draft) and i still think he fell because of that silly picture of him that popped up last year. jeffrey showed that, when healthy, he can be a difference maker last season. i expect him to train up this off season and continue to improve. i'd be buying if i didn't own him everywhere. he's a value guy who's price isn't that high and could pay off big IMO.

i bought into hill last year too... after the first week i thought he was golden but we never saw that guy again. i'm a bit concerned that he didn't improve much at all throughout the season, though he was dinged up pretty much throughout. raw was an understatement for him last season, there were glimpses of expectations being met but he's got alot of work to do. he's got all the talent in the world... with hard work and his measurables he has the tools to be special. i'm holding for now and again, would buy if i didn't own him everywhere. his price isn't going to be any lower than it is now... buy if you believe!

there were alot of doubters of k.wright after a slow 40 at the combine... he proved them wrong by showing what he showed on saturdays at baylor. he plays fast. he was impressive and showed poise as a rookie. he's another guy that i see as a perennial top 15-20 guy but not elite. i like him but those who own him likely wont be giving him up easy. if the price is right, buy.

hilton surprised. i like brazill and thought he would be the guy to own but hilton and luck seem to have a nice connection. i still think brazill could develop into the go-to guy in indy but hilton clearly had the better start. he's similar to givens in their abilities to stretch the field. they both surprised (me) and they seem to have the special speed that many corners cant keep up with. i'm not a huge fan of the smaller speedsters but if that's your cup of tea i'd be looking to see where the hilton/givens owners value them and try to pry them away.

broyles (if you believe he's healthy and can stay that way) and randle are promising possession guys - i'm not buying them personally but they could definitely present good value in ppr leagues at the right price.

again, big fan of this class and i'm excited to see what the 2013 class will bring us too, they both seem to be deep with promising talents.

Knowing what I do about this class (2013) and what we saw in glimpses of the 2012 class I would still take a few of them over the likes of most of the 2013 WR's. I hold Blackmon/Gordon/Floyd/Jeffery/Sanu/and even Quick well above the 2013 WR's except for Patterson/Austin.

Who are the best players from this group?

Blackmon, is probably the most talented but his team and QB stink. I'd go with Hilton.

Who represents the best value per cost?

Hilton will be expensive but he will produce. Jeffrey will be very good if he is healthy. Wright should be good too if esp if Nate Washington leaves.

Who will take a big step forward in 2012?

Jeffrey.

Keep in mind the he, like Gordon and Randle, are younger than most of the receivers in this year's draft.

I targeted Kendall Wright last year after the draft and acquired him. He's the guy I think will end up the best value/producer from last season's class. Wright checks off in every way for me. In order of importance (imo), here are all the check marks:

High draft pick - Kendall Wright was a 1.20 pick in 2012. My data implies a pretty strong correlation with draft order and probability of success. It's important to understand that prognosticating is really about using probability to gain leverage. Nobody is Nostradamus and therefore, you can only limit your chance of failure, you can't eliminate it. So my point, obviously superstars come from all rounds in the draft. However, the higher the pick, the higher the probability that person becomes "elite". Of the 15 or so "elite" WRs currently in the league, 9 of them were 1st round picks. We can argue all day about what 15 or so I consider the "elite". That's not the point - make your own list and see how many are 1st round picks.

Explosion/Burst - Wright measures in the top echelon in basically all combine and/or pro-day metrics. 38.5 vert, 10+ foot broad, under 7 seconds in the 3 cone, under 4.2 in the 20 yard shuttle, 10,20,40 yard dash times are more than respectable (1.53, 2.65, 4.42). He doesn't have the very best metrics, but certainly in the area where you sit up in your chair and notice. This combined with his 1st round status, increases his probability to be WR1 in FF.

SOLID rookie year - We've been spoiled in the last several years to see 1st and 2nd year WRs really produce upper-tier stats. This hasn't always been the case and in fact, is more the exception than the rule historically. Sure the times are changing and this might be the new norm. But with Wright, he didn't post AJ Green/Julio Jones rookie numbers but 600+/4TD is more than solid for a rookie. I will now look for him to build on that in 2013. If he can get 800+ this season, the trend will be more obvious - that he's heading toward WR1 territory.

"Man Weight" - Some might call this BMI. Regardless of his 5'10 height - not ideal for stud WR1 types - his weight balances his relative shortness. Wright is similar to Victor Cruz in many ways, although Cruz is 6'0. Both players, while not really stocky, possess thicker trunks than many WRs. Miles Austin is the staple of the build I'm referring to. Not comparing Wright in this case - but just painting a picture. Next time you watch the Cowboys, see how thick Miles Austin is below his waist. While not as obvious, Wright has a similar and proportionate build.

Because he's on my dynasty team - The final reason why I believe in Wright - I went after him and got him. Of course I'm the best FF prognosticator I know, so the fact that I seeked him out must mean I'm wright about his future!!

Of course Blackmon passes all the tests too but there's just something about that JAX team that gives me a grim outlook for anything related to FF. I'll throw a quick plug for AJ Jenkins too. Many of the same arguments but he didn't play much, if at all, last season. Keep your eye on him though as SF appears to be creeping up on dynasty type status.

Good post. I have Wright in dynasty as well. I also have Jeffrey and am higher on him but I like Wright too esp if Washington is gone.

Thanks. I like your avatar.E2A: I also targeted Alshon and AJ Jenkins and only scored Jenkins in 1/2 dynasty leagues. Wright was my favorite rookie WR from last season, followed by Jenkins and Alshon as 2a/2b. Really close between those two and really won't know until they get some more PT. Alshon looked good until he got injured. We haven't seen anything from Jenkins yet. Those are the only guys outside of Blackmon who I think have WR1 potential. There are other WRs I like but more as WR2s (like TY Hilton).

I also really like a few WR's in this class. Personally, I see Blackmon as a ell high right now. He's a talented WR, but the uncertainty with the Jaguars QB situation scares me and I don't see him as that special WR that will still put up very good numbers with a mediocre QB and I actually like Cecil Shorts almost as much as him. I wasn't too sure what to make of Gordon, and still would look into selling him high if someone else believes that he has elite WR talent. I know that Floyd is a hot buy-low right now, but the bottom line is that I've never been a fan of his talent level to become a solid FF contributor unless he's in a really favourable situation. I would actually buy high on T.Y. Hilton, obviously I love his QB and I thought that he was one of the best speed/small WR's of this class, he should be a solid WR2 for years to come. Guys I'm trying to buy low on and still believe in are A.J. Jenkins, Stephen Hill, Alshon Jeffery and Mohamed Sanu(not really a buy-low but I think a lot of owners wouldn't mind moving him). Also not a big of Kendall Wright, Brian Quick and Rueben Randle.

I try to stay honest to my original rookie rankings as much as possible with limited adjustments(I obviously like Gordon a lot more now and I also downgraded Hill and Jenkins a bit based on what I saw and heard about them so far).

Gimme Brian Quick for the upside/cost ratio.

Below is Les Snead discussing his young receiver and a video of all of his targets.

Quick Hits

Les compares Quick to Vincent Jackson (in terms of coming from a small college and needing some time to develop). I think he has the size/speed/jumping ability you look for in a number one wide receiver. This offseason will be an important one for Mr. Quick. If/Once he starts showing those flashes more consistently his value will spike aggressively. I am willing to pay today's price for his upside.

*Now I know were I saw this video - thanks to lyon812 in the Rams thread.

But not a big fan of using upper case.

From a value per acquisition cost:

Quick-lowest cost and quickest possible return.

Posey-He's going to have value but the injury sets him back. This time next year he will look to be a solid up and comer, may help late in 2013 runs.

Toon-I think by mid 2014, he will be a regular part of what they are doing and he can be a very solid player.

Wylie-The wild-card of the group. Reid could turn him into Wes Welker. Reid could play around with Baldwin and Dexter and we could sit on Wylie for a long time.

Floyd- The fringe guy of this group because he is the biggest name/perceived talent that is still cheaply obtainable until the Cards show signs of life at QB.

The other guys (Gordon, Randle, Broyles, etc) are better talents/bets for FF but not worth the cost. Adding gordon, Hilton and even to a degree, Randle is a higher price than just drafting your own guy in this year's draft but the first four I mentioned can be had for not much and could be in your starting lineup fairly soon.

For the most part, go with the guys who you liked coming out of college. From the analysis I did here, prospects to watch (based on their college production) are:

Kendall Wright

Ryan Broyles

Stephen Hill

Alshon Jeffery

Juron Criner

Michael Floyd

Justin Blackmon & T.Y. Hilton would also be on that list, but they're no longer just prospects.

Based on their college production, these are guys to avoid (from worst production to least bad):

Devon Wylie

Keshawn Martin

Mohamed Sanu

Danny Coale

Marvin Jones

Joe Adams

Travis Benjamin

DeVier Posey

T.J. Graham

Josh Gordon and Greg Childs would be on this list, but they get asterisks because their unusual college experiences limited their opportunities to produce.

Good post. I have Wright in dynasty as well. I also have Jeffrey and am higher on him but I like Wright too esp if Washington is gone.
Just wondering, why would Washington be gone?? He isnt a FA and hasnt been cut yet. Britt hasnt been a model of health, on and off field.And so Im not off-topic totally, I like Jeffery and Randle as buys right now that can be had reasonably. If not for his injury, I think Jeffery wouldve had a solid rookie year and not be undervalued now. The 2 soon to be pricy studs ahead of Randle make him a smart "opportunity cost" buy to me.

there was talk of trade/cutting... it's a possibility but you're right, it's not inevitable or anything. agreed with jeffrey, price is right now... won't be for long though imo!

in attempt to salvage this here thread (sorry, thugs these days) ...

the rams didn't do much in free agency as far as WR... with amendola and gibson out quick and givens should get a bump. i'm curious if they'll be looking for someone in the draft but it seems like they've made a bit of statement that they trust them as starters. the quick or givens owner may be even more reluctant to move them now but i think they're even more-so buy guys, if you can that is. thoughts?

I like alot of the top guys, but the problem is like EBF said, a lot of them were high picks and will likley cost quite a bit. But i do believe there are some quality targets at all price ranges:

Top Shelf Johnny Walker Crown Royal Reserve Tier:

Josh Gordon Browns Baylor

Justin Blackmon Jaguars Oklahoma State

T.Y. Hilton Colts Florida International

Michael Floyd Cardinals Notre Dame

Kendall Wright Titans Baylor

Of this group I think I would prefer Hilton. He has the best QB in the group and a clear path to future production with Reggie Wayne walking off into the sunset sooner than later. No one in this group will come cheap, but I do believe Hitlon is worth over paying for.

Jack Daniels-Jim Beam Tier

A.J. Jenkins 49ers Illinois

Brian Quick Rams Appalachian State

Stephen Hill Jets Georgia Tech

Alshon Jeffery Bears South Carolina

Ryan Broyles Lions Oklahoma

Rueben Randle Giants Louisiana State

Chris Givens Rams Wake Forest

The guys in this group I feel are a little more available. Most of them have were affected by Free Agency. ( Boldin to SF, Cook to STL, Bennet to CHI, Reggie Bush to DET) Of this group I prefer Stephen Hill. Yes Sanchez is awful, but I think Stephen Hill offers the most raw talent of the group. We saw flashes during his rookie year and maybe if Garrard or Kolb win the job in NY, they can get Hill the pigskin and he can continue to develop.

Canadian Mist-Windsor Tier

Mohamed Sanu Bengals Rutgers

Devon Wylie Chiefs Fresno Stat

Jarius Wright Vikings Arkansas

Nick Toon Saints Wisconsin

Wright probably doesnt belong in this tier any more, but now maybe after the Jennings signing, you can get him cheap. Questions surround all of these players. I really liked Toon and Wylie coming into last season, unfortunatley neither of them showed much in 2012. I think they are both worth a flier at this point in the year, you might be able to even find both of them on the Waiver Wire. My pick out of this group however is Sanu. I think Sanu can eventually become a TJ Houshmanzadeh type of player. AJ Green needs a running mate, maybe Sanu can be that guy this season.
