Fantasy football players have a lot of unusual tips, one that you might have come across is the theory that wide receivers are most likely to break out in their third season. If you've been playing fantasy football for a while now then you probably already know this rule because it is fairly common. No one has ever statistically proven it or anything it just seems to be a trend every year. The theory is that the receivers take about 2 years to get used to the higher competition and how much attention to detail their route running really takes. Being a receiver is more difficult than perceived by the average fan.

For now I'm not going to go really deep into trying to prove that third year wide receivers are the best, I am just going to provide a list of all third year wide receivers, not all of this players are necessarily ready to break out. For players who are set to break out check out the Sleepers Page. More sleepers articles are available on the left side bar as well. Keep in mind that comments for each player is featured on their rankings page, so check it out.





This list is in alphabetical order. Some of these players you might consider have already broken out, like Percy Harvin. But others are actually sleeper candidates for this year like Kenny Britt and Michael Crabtree so keep your eyes open. Enjoy the list.
