2020 Fantasy Football SLEEPERS

2020 Fantasy Football Sleepers

The NFL season is still far away but what else are we supposed to do? I love reading rankings and projections but I need more! Mock drafts are cool. So are rookie mock drafts. I need more! What about fantasy football mock drafts? How many of those do you normally do? What’s an outrageous number before people say your obsessed?

I still need more. Breakouts and sleepers? Does that move the needle? Now we’re talking right? I’ll be honest breakouts are my favorite! So are bold predictions! For the sake of what I’m trying to do now lets focus on sleepers!

Missed the breakout article? Check it out here! https://www.dfscheatsheet.com/2020-massive-fantasy-football-breakouts/nfl/04/

My idea of a sleeper is a fantasy football player under the radar, limited buzz with a low ADP. You can even take it a step further and look at an early season waiver wire add as a sleeper! Fantasy football is a game of skill mixed with a ton of luck!

Darwin Thompson RB/WR-Kansas City Chiefs

Kansas City Chiefs RB Darwin Thompson

Everybody was licking their chops last season when LeSean McCoy was made inactive and KC trusted Darwin as their RB2 for the postseason. There were bumps in the road for Thompson in 2019 but rightfully so. Still cheap with limited buzz I’d pencil him in as a great late round selection.

Justin Jackson RB-Los Angeles Chargers

Los Angeles Chargers RB Justin Jackson

Melvin Gordon III is a goner! He’s in Denver now! That leaves Ekler and Justin Jackson as their RB’s. I do recall a small burst in Jackson’s value last season. It never came to fruition, 2020 it will! People forget what a stud bell cow back he was at Northwestern. There is next to nothing in terms of carries on his resume. Only 25 Justin has a lot to give! I’m excited to see what the Chargers do in 2020 in terms of splitting the RB workload.

Ronald Jones RB-Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones

This one might be shocking but I find Jones very interesting this season! Peyton Barber has moved on to Washington and TB has brought in TB at QB! I’m counting on a lot of swing routes and a ton of red-zone work for Ronald in 2020. He finished 2019 as RB25 yet he’s fallen to RB37 in the mock draft research I’ve done. I’m shocked and I may be the only one banging the Ron Jones dump in 2020!

Jamaal Williams RB-Green Bay Packers

Green Bay Packers RB Jamal Williams

At the start of the 2019 season is it safe to say we didn’t know what was what at the RB situation was in GB? Well it’s now 2020 and Aaron Jones is the RB1 there! So what’s with the J-Will sleeper talk? We all know he’s one of the more popular handcuffs but I believe in 2020 he creates his own value. Jones is the better pounding RB while Williams is better suited as a PPR back.

Nyheim Hines RB-Indianapolis Colts

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines

You may think of Hines as a stretch here. Let me tell you why he needs to be on your radar in 2020. Nyheim is more of an op in PPR formats having caught 44 balls on only 58 targets. Marlon Mack is the RB1 in Indy, for now. With the addition of Phil Rivers expect Hines to get more work in 2020. Lets be honest, Mack was often injured in 2019 so what’s the harm in adding Nyheim late in your draft?

Derrius Guice RB-Washington Redskins

Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice

I often have to set aside my personal opinions from my fantasy opinions. There is a difference! It might be reckless to say I want nothing to do with Guice but that’s not fair to you as a fantasy football fan. Let’s get back on track here. Let’s also hope Guice is fully healthy and can stay healthy in 2020. Ron Rivera is the head coach in Washington now and if you look at his track record running backs have done well under his coaching regimes. Chris Thompson has gone to TB and Adrian Peterson is in the twilight of his NFL career. Everything is set up for Guice to grab a hold of this RB1 job. To me, jury is still out. Don’t let my personal skepticism get in the way of your decision here.

Breshad Perriman WR-New York Jets

This one is very interesting to me! Perriman was thrust into the limelight late last season in Tampa. Then he spun that success to the tune of a one year 6.5 million dollar contract with the Jets. I don’t see the Jets offense lighting the word on fire but there is void left to fill by Robby Anderson heading to Carolina. 52 receptions, 779 yards and 5 TD’s are up for grabs in New York this season! Perriman is calling dibs on those numbers!

Diontae Johnson WR-Pittsburgh Steelers

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Diontae Johnson

Dionate saw 90 targets in 2019 catching 57 of them. Upon further inspections Johnson had the best season out of the Steelers WR’s. Pittsburgh was hammered with injuries in last season. Next man up is a real thing! Dionate made the most of his opportunities. Look for Diontae to take the next step in 2020 with a fully healthy offense around him! Be mindful of his ADP he’s already creating quite the, “sleeper” buzz.

John Ross WR-Cincinnati Bengals

Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross

I’ve said it a few times already but Cincinnati should have a better situation going on at QB in 2020. Ross came out hot last season with two 100-yard games and 3 TD’s. He’s a legit deep threat and a rookie QB’s best friend! His time is now! – John Cena

Corey Davis WR-Tennessee Titans

Tennessee Titans WR Corey Davis

There are a ton of stats and what-if scenarios here with Corey. A.J. Brown was the guy to break-out in Tennessee last season. Davis is a fantastic WR2 for your fantasy team. A healthy competition between the two in OTA’s and preseason is just what the doctor is ordering here! If you made a list started with A.J. and Davis there is no real competition after that! Even more so, this offense can sustain two legit WR’s! We all know King Henry comes first but be on the look out for Davis in 2020!

Anthony Miller WR-Chicago Bears

Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller

Miller is more of a post-hype sleeper but sleeper none-the-less. We all know Allen Robinson is the WR1 in Chicago but really, what else do the Bears have? Miller possesses a bevy of raw skills and will put it all together in 2020. Anthony is being drafted more as a depth receiver, which is fitting, just know he can give your team much more in 2020!

Hunter Renfrow WR-Las Vegas Raiders

Las Vegas Raiders WR Hunter Renfrow

Everyone else is talking about him! Why not me? At a certain point in 2019 Hunter was seeing 5.5 targets a game. Yet in the last two games of the season he saw 18 total targets. Most people look at Oakland as a cesspool but they are actually a fantasy friendly offense. Did you know the Raiders averaged 363 yards a game in 2019? I don’t know about you but I want a piece of that!

Preston Williams WR-Miami Dolphins

Miami Dolphins WR Preston Williams

I feel like no one paid attention to all the tips and positive content on Preston last season. He’s only 23 years old and is a massive target. A 6’5 kid who is lean at 218lbs should make you rosters happy in 2020. Make no mistake, Preston and Parker will be the 1-2 punch Miami envisioned them to be from the start. Williams saw 60 targets in 8 games and I’m already sold on MIA drafting a QB with their 5th overall pick next week. I’m excited about Preston! I suggest you jump on board!

James Washington WR-Pittsburgh Steelers

Pittsburgh Steelers WR James Washington

Speaking of combos lets take it a step further and mention a trio! Washington, Johnson and Juju! You don’t know this but there was a 2-3 minute silence after that first sentence on my end. I was contemplating a funny law firm type joke with these three kids. Anyways, the biggest issue with the Pittsburgh last season was consistency. James is a speed demon and due to the horrible QB play last season he’s being drafted in the WR60 range. I find that utterly shocking and expect a full return and then some on your draft day value!

2020 Players To Buy

The NFL season is still far away but what else are we supposed to do? I love reading rankings and projections but I need more! Mock drafts are cool. So are rookie mock drafts. I need more! What about fantasy football mock drafts? How many of those do you normally do? What’s an outrageous number before people say your obsessed?

As we move closer the NFL draft you will start to see more content popping up. Mock drafts galore, tiered rankings and rookie projections. At a certain point it’ll make your head spin. If you’re like me you have your favorites. Favorite website, favorite writer and favorite articles.

So much like the Breakouts article I wanted to get in on a list of players I’m buying without any hesitation! The 2020 NFL Draft class is loaded with offensive talent. We already know this. What about players already in the league that we should buy?

If you’re in any dynasty leagues there is no off-season! Lets get to it! Here is an in-depth list of players I’m buying in 2020!

QUARTERBACKS

Matthew Stafford QB-Detroit Lions

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford

Stafford has always been a stats monster. I’ve read a lot of comments on social media where people were doubting Matthew’s durability and injury history. I find that argument completely ridiculous. From 2011-2019 Stafford has missed 8 games. Out of those 9 seasons and 144 total games, Matt has missed 8 games. All being from the 2019 season. Stafford started all 16 games for 8 straight season. I just find this argument to be lazy and the whole, “what have you done for me lately?’ rationale. People forget about Stafford due to him being stuck playing for a lousy Detroit Lions team. This is fantasy football people, real life NFL wins and losses don’t matter. Our fantasy points do. I trust Matthew this season. We don’t know what the 2020 Draft will bring the Detroit Lions but with a healthy Kerryon, Golladay and Marvin Jones I’m buying Stafford as my QB1!

Kyler Murray QB-Arizona Cardinals

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray

I’ve been vocal in the past about not trusting Kyler’s ability to get it done in the NFL. I’ve also admitted I was wrong. Now I will take it a step further and tell you I’m sold and we should buy! That’s the beauty of sports! It’s also the beauty of writing! If I’m open and honest with myself I’m able to be honest with you! We’ve seen Murray’s value boom after Arizona landed Hopkins last month. I mean, why wouldn’t it? Kyler’s value has always been his ability to run and rack up rushing yards. Now you can add another level to his game. With Drake showing us late last season what he can mixed with Hopkins sure hands and big play ability, Kyler Murray should soar into the top ten of quarterback rankings in 2020. Buy! Buy! Buy!

RUNNING BACKS

Miles Sanders RB-Philadelphia Eagles

Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders

I’m a big fan of Miles and what he can do on the football field. For most of the 2019 season it felt like Philly had no idea how and what to do with Sanders. That’s just a personal opinion of mine. Sanders is the quintessential stud pass catching back. I’m not saying anything new here but 2020 is going to be a big year for Miles Sanders. In 2019 he had 63 targets for 50 receptions, 509 yards and 3 touchdowns. In PPR formats I’m buying as often as I can. Buy! Buy! Buy!

David Montgomery RB-Chicago Bears

Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery

Before the start of the 2019 season I viewed Montgomery and Sanders as the same type of back. Half way through the season I was ripping my own hair out. The Chicago Bears clearly had no idea how to use Montgomery. Is he a must start? Is he a sit? He was only on the field 57% of the Bears offensive snaps in 2019. Was it due to poor game scripts? Were the Bears really that bad in 2019? If you look into it they finished .500 so why the heck didn’t David get more action? I’m not a beat writer for the Bears for so I have no answer. Could it have been head coach Matt Nagy? 2019 was his second year at the helm? PPR specialist Tarik Cohen? Regardless of circumstance, I firmly believe David Montgomery makes the leap in 2020. Much like Sanders, their respective teams know what they have now. Time to cut them loose! Buy! Buy! Buy!

Joe Mixon RB-Cincinnati Bengals

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon

Another guy I had no interest in drafting last season. Watching him go so high in all the 2019 mocks and then again in real drafts was shocking. For a moment I felt as is I missed something. What does everyone else know? For the first 10 games of the 2019 season my hesitations were well warranted. Then Cincinnati’s head coach Zac Taylor removed his head from his own ass and the results were fantastic! Joe Mixon had a stud like final 8 games. Racking up 817 rushing yards, 5 touchdowns and 16 receptions for 177 yards. In this case it was of no fault to Mixon himself but an issue with his coaching staff. As it stands now Cincy will look to draft LSU QB Joe Burrow #1 overall. All reports are pointing to a fully healthy A.J. Green along with fellow WR’s Tyler Boyd and John Ross. The arrows are no doubt pointing up for Mixon. I want in! Buy! Buy! Buy!

Devin Singletary RB-Buffalo Bills

Buffalo Bills RB Devin Singletary

Look, am I buying into the hype that the Buffalo Bills are good again and can push for the AFC East title? Absolutely! As a life long Detroit Lions fan I get along with other long suffering fan bases. In my personal opinion, the NFL is just better when the Bills are good. Guess I just like to see other historically bad teams succeed. Although the Bills have had some major success in the past. Something something four straight Super Bowl appearances. I’ve gotten a tad off track. Where were we? Devin Singletary! In 2019 Devin found some run and did quite well with it. He did play second fiddle here and there while Frank Gore also got some playing time. Singletary only started 8 games yet finished with 969 all purpose yards. Gore is no longer under contract with the Bills. Devin is the man in Buffalo, for now. Meaning, does Buffalo draft a RB later this month? I’m not a mind reader so I can’t answer that question. However, the Bills don’t have a first round pick this year. Their first pick is #54 in the second round. All odds are pointing to Devin being the RB1 in Buffalo this year. Josh Allen, John Brown and newest addition Stefon Diggs make up the offensive core. With an up-and-coming offense and a Tom Brady-less Patriots team the division is theirs for the taking. Another second year RB, Singletary will get all the carries he can handle! Buy! Buy! Buy!

WIDE RECEIVERS

Calvin Ridley WR-Atlanta Falcons

Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley

Sometimes I have to stop and think before making certain comments. My first thought was to say, “I’m sure you’ve all heard about Ridley!” That would be crazy right? Calvin isn’t a household name! He’s not even his teams WR1! Julio Jones is! In this case Ridley has thrived as the WR2 in Atlanta. Doesn’t take a genius to figure out why. Calvin Ridley is a weapon. A weapon I want on my side when I go to fantasy war. Ridley absolutely explodes off the line while leaving the defender guessing at his next step. I’ve owned Ridley in a dynasty league since day 1 and I’ve studied his every move. He never runs a lazy half ass route. His footwork is tremendous and this kid get major separation. What I find shocking is the fact Ridley is still learning and growing. 2020 will be his third year in the NFL and I’d be willing to bet the best of his young career to date. Buy! Buy! Buy!

Davante Adams WR-Green Bay

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams

This one should come as no surprise. Only reason I mention Adams is because I may be higher on him then most. It’s not really a, “gutsy” call to mention a top 5 WR as a buy. I’m just here to give Adams the credit he deserves. 2019 was no fun for his owners. After a 111 reception, 1,368 yard and 13 TD 2018 season, 2019 was supposed to be glorious! That damn turf toe! However, Adams was able to play 12 games in 2019 and salvaged his season because of it. The targets and receptions were there, just light on the touchdowns. I am fully expecting a monster season out of Adams in 2020. Easily a top 10 draft pick, I will not hesitate to pull the trigger. Do some homework if you’re in a dynasty league. Check on his value and see if you’re able to acquire him from a less than thrilled owner. 100+ receptions, 1,200+ yards and 8 TD’s is his floor. I mean c’mon! What else are you waiting for?! Buy! Buy! Buy!

Christian Kirk WR-Arizona Cardinals

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk

Let me be upfront and honest here. I have no strong feelings for Kirk here one way or another. Let me also tell you that I felt a strong obligation to mention Christian here for two reasons. First, I’ve seen a lot of talk about Kirk and why he’s such breakout candidate in 2020. Something about DeAndre Hopkins now being in Arizona and pulling coverage away from Kirk. So I decided to join the masses instead of making my own way. Second, I wouldn’t tell you do anything I wouldn’t do myself. I like the idea of buying Kirk but not for the same reasons as most. To me, buying Kirk is a strategic move. If you’re able to add him pre-draft or grab him after I would turn around and sell him to the highest bidder in a heart beat. Buy! Buy! Trade!

TIGHT-ENDS

Jack Doyle TE-Indianapolis Colts

Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle

There’s this huge relief that has come over me as a Jack Doyle owner. I’ve finally figured out what it is! Eric Ebron leaving to play in Pittsburgh! Ebron is the most over rated TE than I can think of. He’s basically a construction barrel that just happens to be placed on a football field. Guy had one good season in 2018 after wasting all our time in Detroit from 2014-2017. Go crowd another teams TE depth chart! I’m sorry Jack! This portion of the article is dedicated to you, not Mr. Construction Cone! Have you heard Phil Rivers is now the QB in Indy? Have you ever heard of a guy named Antonio Gates? How about a kid named Hunter Henry? Look, I’m not saying Jack Doyle is a Hall of Fame TE like Gates. Just pointing out how much Phil likes to feed his tight-end. It wouldn’t take much for Doyle to have a career year statistically in 2020. How much would it cost to grab Doyle in a trade or in your draft? Next to nothing right? Do it or don’t say I never warned you! Buy! Buy! Buy!

O.J. Howard TE-Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard

Another huge shock right? Sometimes it’s best to point out the obvious! That way my horrible calls don’t look as bad! Jokes aside, what the hell happened with OJ in 2019? He started 14 games, played in 69% of the offensive snaps and only scored one flipping touchdown? That is flat out miserable. It’s actually disgusting! Which will make 2020 that much sweeter! Unless you’ve been living on Mars then you know Tom Brady is the QB in Tampa Bay. Bruce Arians is also the new coach. See what I’m getting at here? Something awesome is brewing in Tampa. Bruce is no stranger to the offensive coordinator position as well. If you Google him you can easily find his favorite motto, “No risk-it, no biscuit!”. He is an aggressive play caller with arguably the greatest quarterback of all-time! That was a long winded way to tell how much I love OJ Howard in 2020. The come back is always sweeter then the set back!

2020 MASSIVE Fantasy Football Breakouts

2020 Fantasy Football Breakouts

Chris Robin https://twitter.com/DetroitBeastie

The NFL season is still far away but what else are we supposed to do? I love reading rankings and projections but I need more! Mock drafts are cool. So are rookie mock drafts. I need more! What about fantasy football mock drafts? How many of those do you normally do? What’s an outrageous number before people say your obsessed?

I still need more. Breakouts and sleepers? Does that move the needle? Now we’re talking right? I’ll be honest breakouts are my favorite! So are bold predictions! For the sake of what I’m trying to do now lets focus on breakouts!

As we move closer the NFL draft you will start to see more content popping up. Mock drafts galore, tiered rankings and rookie projections. At a certain point it’ll make your head spin. If you’re like me you have your favorites. Favorite website, favorite writer and favorite articles.

I’m of the old adage, “No such thing as too much content!” Until now! Listen, hear me out! This time of the year there is just so much content. It’s hard to wade through all of it. The excitement in spring is so high that anyone and everyone picks up a pen and goes to town. Once the season starts and we get into the thick of the NFL season there will be a ton of drop off.

We all have our favorites! Keep following and show love to your favorite writer or comment on your favorite article! I can’t speak for anyone else but I love it! I’m very appreciative and quite grateful to all of you.

QUARTERBACKS
Daniel Jones New York Giants
Drew Lock Denver Broncos
Dwayne Haskins Washington Redskins
New York Giants QB Daniel Jones
After an impressive rookie year Daniel Jones should continue to grow in the system. If the Giants continue to beef up the O-Line it should give Jones more time to pass and fumble less.Lock had a few impressive starts last season.. He has one of the best young WRs in Sutton and a new RB in Melvin Gordon to pair with Lindsay. He has a chance to be a good late round QB that has could maybe have top 15 or better upside!

Most think Washington could move on from Haskins after 1 year but I’m coming from the opposite side. Last game or two they change the offense some and Dwayne was excelling. They need to help him out and give him a chance. He could be a good FA pick if he starts off hot.

RUNNING BACKS

David Montgomery Chicago Bears

Chicago RB David Montgomery

Damien Williams Kansas City Chiefs
Kerryon Johnson Detroit Lions
Justin Jackson Los Angeles Chargers

Montgomery was one of my favorite rookie backs last year!  His seasons didn’t go as planned. He is talented and the coach used him wrong. Hopefully they have learned from there mistakes and feeds the kid.

I am one in the scouting community that believe The Chiefs do not address the RB position in the draft. Leaving William’s with the chance to shine in his final contract year. If he can put together a full season of what he did in the playoffs last 2 years. He could be a top 10 Fantasy RB!

It hurts that I love Kerryon so much and want him to succeed so bad. Lions need to run the ball more and refuse to, but this is the year Kerryon has to step up and shine or the team will move on from him. Here’s praying the situation works out best. I have faith!

Jackson is talented in the flashes he has shown. Averaging around 5 ypc. Most believe Eckler is the man there and that he has his role. If they don’t draft another RB, Jackson could shine in a split carry role with Eckler and been a solid flex option.

WIDE RECEIVERS
Diontae Johnson Pittsburgh Steelers
Darius Slayton New York Giants
Hollywood Brown Baltimore Ravens
Breshad Perriman New York Jets

Giants WR Darius Slayton

Diontae Johnson shows the ability to be a big piece in the Steelers offense which they lacked a lot last year. With Big Ben back and hopefully a healthy Juju, Johnson could see a lot of passes as a WR 2.

Slayton had a big year in the TD department year 1. If Daniel Jones continues to improve that helps Slayton who seemed to make a connection with the new franchise QB.

Hollywood showed big play flashes with MVP QB Lamar Jackson. His speed is undeniable. If he continue to grow and stays healthy. Sky’s the limit with in this BAL offense!

Perriman balled out last few weeks of the season with the Buccaneers. Now getting the chance to being the WR1 for the wide out desperate Jets. He has a chance to eat up targets. Which should result in some cheap fantasy points where you will be drafting him.

TIGHT END
Mike Gescki Miami Dolphins
Noah Fant Denver Broncos
Hayden Hurst Atlanta Falcons

Denver TE Noah Fant

Gescki is a talented TE who hasn’t shined much in the Dolphins offense. Now they might be getting a legit QB that can utilize his skills

Hurst moves to Atlanta from Baltimore where he got buried on the depth chart. He is a great blocker with good hands. Hoping to fill in as a similar role to Hooper last year.

Fant showed flashes with Denver. He needs to take the next step and be that threat for his young QB.

I’m starting to get the feeling this is like a stand up comedy show and I’m the host. Next up, coming to the stage is Ethan Cowlbeck! The young teenage phenom! Ethan burst on the scene recently with his late round 2020 NFL mock draft articles! Show him some love and tip your bartenders! Follow him here! https://twitter.com/DJ_Beck_

QUARTERBACK 

Detroit QB Matthew Stafford

Matthew Stafford Detroit Lions

When going through the final few rounds of a draft, there’s one player who almost always manages to show up: Stafford. His season last year was full of fireworks early on until a lingering injury sidelined him for the remainder of the year. The injury is a serious risk, but the performance of Stafford could easily result in a top 10 season.

RUNNING BACK

San Francisco RB Raheem Mostert

Raheem Mostert San Francisco 49ers
Last year he only had flashes during the regular season. Something clicked during the playoffs though, and while I still expect a committee backfield, Mostert should be the go-to for this year.

Buffalo RB Devin Singletary

Devin Singletary Buffalo Bills

Regardless of whether Frank Gore comes back to the Bills from free agency, Singletary showed last season that he can be a very consistent player when healthy.

LA RB Darrell Henderson

Darrell Henderson Los Angeles Rams

Gurley is now out of the picture, and if the Rams learned anything last year, forcing the ball through the air is not a viable strategy. Malcolm Brown is unlikely to be able play a workhorse role, so the door is open for Henderson.

WIDE RECEIVER

Denver WR Courtland Sutton

Courtland Sutton Denver Broncos

Sutton is about to be the direct beneficiary of a greatly improved offense where he is still the clear number one receiving option. Drew Lock is the real deal and there’s no reason Sutton won’t perform as a result.

Atlanta WR Calvin Ridley

Calvin Ridley Atlanta Falcons

We’ve seen that the tandem of Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley makes for a great fantasy offense, but I expect an uptick in touchdowns this year from the offense and from Ridley.

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton

T.Y. Hilton Indianapolis Colts

Hilton saw regression last year in his overall performance for fantasy. Regardless whether Brissett or Rivers wins the starting job, more consistency should result in great numbers for Hilton.

Houston WR Will Fuller V

Will Fuller V Houston Texans

The absence of Hopkins won’t stop Deshaun Watson from being a high caliber quarterback, and Fuller will be the source of that production. He is capable of being a proficient WR1 on a quality team.

Giants WR Darius Slayton

Darius Slayton New York Giants

After Daniel Jones came along and instantly changed the Giants offense, Slayton was not far behind. If Slayton really is going to be Jones’ favorite target, he could be in line for a huge year.

TIGHT-END

Indianapolis TE Jack Doyle

Jack Doyle Indianapolis Colts

Finally the Colts have just one tight end. As long as it remains like this, Doyle should receive most of the work formerly given to Ebron. He’s proved he’s a good player, so this change in the team should be for his benefit in fantasy.

Moving on to Mr. Ben Anderson! You should all Ben by now and what he brings to the fantasy sports discussion! Not to mention his love for peanut butter and cake! Follow him here! https://twitter.com/bennieboy26

QUARTERBACKS

Denver QB Drew Lock

Drew Lock Denver Broncos

Denver has been looking for a QB for years. If Lock’s second-half numbers last year translates to the NFL like his college numbers were the wild west is going to be fun to watch!

Buffalo QB Josh Allen

Josh Allen Buffalo Bills

Allen made big Strides forward last year without a number one receiver to throw to, imagine what his numbers will be this year throwing to someone like Stefon Diggs.
Cleveland QB Baker Mayfield

Baker Mayfield Cleveland Browns

Cleveland overall last year was a disappointment but Baker Mayfield with a real head coach still having Jarvis Landry Odell Beckham Jr. Newly signed Austin Hooper, Along with one of the best running games in football with Nick Chubb and Kareem hunt Baker Mayfield Will be the guy we all want him to be.

RUNNING BACKS
Miami RB Jordan Howard
Jordan Howard Miami Dolphins
Howard has never really gotten any love was a good running back in Chicago who rushed for over a thousand yards has never really been able to be the number one running back for a team until this year. With him being the game Miami I fully expect Jordan Howard to emerge as a top 10 running back this year.
Buffalo RB Devin Singletary
Devin Singletary Buffalo Bills
Last year as a rookie you saw the potential Singleterry has in spurts. Coming in the year two with a better Josh Allen with a guy like Stefon Diggs on the outside force them to fenders to play further out than stacking eight or nine in the box watch out for Devin Singletary this year.
Los Angeles RB Austin Ekeler
Austin Eckler Los Angeles Chargers
With Melvin Gordon out of town, Austin Eckler should be able to take over the Number one running back spot finally for the course of a whole year and in PPR league easily a top-five running back.
New England RB Sony Michel
Sony Michel New England Patriots
With Brady, not New England any more patriots are going to need to find a definitely a football to go to this year I can see them going to more of a running game heavy offense using Sony Michel way more than they have over the last couple years
WIDE RECEIVERS
Las Vegas WR Hunter Renfrow
Hunter Renfrow Las Vegas Raiders
Renfrow last year had an overall good season until he got hurt. Playing mostly in the slot, Hunter Renfrow could easily be the next Wes Welker or Julian Edelman type for years to come.
Indianapolis WR Zach Pascal
Zach Pascal Indianapolis Colts
Indianapolis doesn’t have a number two wide receiver and last year Zach played fairly well this year with hopefully a fully healthy T.Y Hilton and a better quarterback and Philip Rivers. Pascal should be able to take the next step.
New Orleans WR Emmanuel Sanders
Emanuel Sanders New Orleans Saints
Two words here, Drew Brees!
Arizona WR Christian Kirk
Christian Kirk Arizona Cardinals
Arizona now, probably has the best wide receiving corps in football. Old man Larry Fitzgerald, Mr. consistency DeAndre Hopkins, and third-year wide receiver Christian Kirk. Fitzgerald plays mostly in the slot and that allows Kirk to play on the outside more, and you can only double-team so many people with Hopkins taking on all the double teams. Christian Kirk is a lock to get 70-80 catches this season with 1000 yards receiving.

Atlanta TE Hayden Hurst

With Austin Hooper no longer in Atlanta, it leaves a huge hole it Atlanta offense. His back to back all-star seasons show you that a TE in Atlanta’s high flying and throw heavy offense can be very successful as long as you can stay healthy.
Tampa Bay TE OJ Howard
OJ Howard Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Is this the year OJ Howard finally breaks out and becomes that top-five tight end? He’s in a new offense and with a new quarterback! Everybody knows Tom Brady loves throwing his tight ends! Meaning Howard is in for a monster season.

Last but certainly not list its my turn! Who can I mention that hasn’t been talked about already? I planned on getting bold to begin with a little bit of common sense. Here’s who I’ve come up with!

QUARTERBACKS

Arizona QB Kyler Murray

Kyler Murray Arizona Cardinals

I’ve caught some heat for this on Twitter but why? I get it. Murray was the 8th best QB in fantasy last season. So how can I mention him as a breakout? That was his rookie season and I think he pushes for MVP in 2020. What happens if ARZ drafts a stud WR like Lamb or Ruggs? Arizona has already traded for Hopkins! Kenyan Drake is their RB. Along with Murray’s rushing abilities he’s no doubt a kid to watch in 2020!

New Orleans QB Taysom Hill

Taysom Hill New Orleans Saints

Hill was used as a Swiss Army knife last season for the Saints. New Orleans also placed a first round tender on Hill all but assuring he stays in New Orleans for the 2020 season. Last season Taysom scored 9 touchdowns. With Teddy gone Hill is in line for a ton of work. With Sean Payton as their coach look for lots of plays to come Hill’s way!

RUNNING BACK

Arizona RB Kenyan Drake

Kenyan Drake Arizona Cardinals

Word is out on Drake. The move to Arizona was too sweet. Believe it or not he was underutilized last season. I’d just chalk that up to growing pains on a new team. All the advanced stats suggest a massive jump in productions for Drake. Like top 5 RB jump! Get a piece of him and thank me later.

Philadelphia RB Miles Sanders

Miles Sanders Philadelphia Eagles

I’m going to keep this one short and sweet. Philly had no idea how to use Miles last season. I drafted both Sanders and Montgomery and by seasons end I was tearing my hair out! I don’t have any to begin with so it was all bad. Nothing fancy here, no cool stats. The Eagles know what they have and I fully expect Miles to get a ton of work in 2020!

WIDE RECEIVERS

Cincinnati WR Tyler Boyd

Tyler Boyd Cincinnati Bengal’s

In 2019 Boyd was in the top 10 of targets (148). The QB play in Cincy was awful so can you imagine how Boyd will do if Joe Burrow is his QB? Yes please!

Carolina WR Curtis Samuel

Curtis Samuel Carolina Panthers

Carolina needs a new QB. Cam is gone. Olsen is gone. People have been writing about a Samuel breakout since 2017. Someone has to get it right one of these years! Samuel has 4.3 speed and still his QB’s couldn’t get him the ball. Only 62% of his targets were catch able and there were a lot of them. If Carolina can land a stud or even a decent QB expect Curtis to break out in a major way! FINALLY!

TIGHT-END

Seattle TE Will Dissly

Will Dissly Seattle Seahawks

His 2018 and 2019 seasons were both ended due to injury. When Will is on the field the targets and catches are there. His average yards a game rank 4th behind Kelce, Kittle and Mark Andrews. I’d say that’s pretty good company! He has an excellent QB on team that lines up with a TE quite often. If Will can stay on the field he’s going to breakout big time!

New York TE Evan Engram

Evan Engram New York Giants

Evans yards per game have increased every season. Only problem is he cant stay on the field much like Dissly. The Giants are slowing putting it togther with Jones, Saquon and Shepard. If Engram can get it dialed in, stay healthy and get some legit snaps in this season he will easily become a TE1!
