2014 Outlook: Super Sleeper (high risk/potential)Last updated on Jul-26-2014 by Jeb Gorham
Justin Hunter looks to be on the upswing as a wideout making strides toward fantasy prowess. Hunter is a huge target and has red-zone appeal for Jake Locker. This season, Hunter moves up to the WR2 spot opposite Kendall Wright (displacing Nate Washington). Wright tends to get the slot looks and that means Hunter becomes the big play guy on the outside. If Locker can get the ball into the vicinity of Hunter, he has the ability to make plays. Shawn Jefferson (the Tennessee WR coach) has high expectations for Hunter and thinks that in his second season the former University of Tennessee WR will be a difference maker. Given his WR ranking and fantasy owner doubts in Locker, Hunter becomes a sleeper pick in redraft. He also has dynasty value in what has to be a much-anticipated 2014 campaign. Based on his ADP (116.09, WR49), Hunter ranks as a low WR4 or high WR5, yet could end up playing like a WR3 pick. Take a shot on this upside prospect.
Editor's note: Hunter was ahead of Cordarrelle Patterson and Da'Rick Rogers on the depth chart when the trio was at the University of Tennessee a couple years back. Patterson may be a different sort of playmaker, but this speaks to Hunter's big-time potential.
