Last season was a record-breaking one for the first-year wide receivers, as Odell Beckham Jr., Mike Evans and others made good use of extensive playing time and supplied serious numbers to their NFL teams and fantasy owners. But as I’ve written in blog entries recently about quarterbacks and running backs, we leave rookies out of the discussion for breakout performers, concentrating more on names that have had various degrees of chances but might not have reached expectations commensurate with their skill level. At wide receiver, breakouts come in many shapes and sizes.
