3. WR Devin Duvernay, Baltimore Ravens
I listed Duvernay as one of my wide receiver sleepers for Week 1, and he did not disappoint. Against the New York Jets, he had four receptions for 54 yards and two touchdowns.
Entering the 2020 NFL Draft, Duvernay was one of the most productive wide receivers in college football. In his senior season at Texas, he had 106 receptions for 1,386 yards and nine touchdowns.
In his first two NFL seasons, he flashed upside, but playing behind Marquise Brown and Sammy Watkins, his opportunities were limited. This season, he has a clear path to targets. Duvernay and Rashod Bateman were the Ravens’ top two wide receivers on Sunday, and I would not expect that to change.
Duvernay showcased his elite hands on his first touchdown reception, as he made a tough, contested grab in the end zone.
His top-level speed makes him a dangerous deep threat, and Lamar Jackson should connect with him for many more big plays this season.
Duvernay may not score 21.4 fantasy points every week, but he should draw consistent targets. His skillset gives him consistent upside. He is firmly on the FLEX radar.
