Wow, what a weird year. Plenty of fantasy football studs and total duds that came out of nowhere. In the spirit of fairness, let’s look back and see who we got right and who we got wrong.
Let’s start with who we got right.
- Jalen Hurts. This was probably our #1 QB target this year and the guy put up MVP caliber numbers. The addition of AJ Brown definitely helped, but that wasn’t the only reason. Hurts took both his passing and running game to another level this year and he should be a top 5 locked-in QB moving forward.
- We predicted a big bounce-back year from Saquon Barkley and, even though he wore down a bit in the second half of the season, he put up top 6 RB numbers in PPR leagues which was a great value for where you got him.
- Amon-Ra St. Brown and Jaylen Waddle. Our favorite 5th and 6th round receivers put up top 10 WR numbers and will do so again next year (write it down).
- Tony Pollard. Called it.
- Ohio State Rookie wide receivers. Is a thousand yards in your rookie year good? How about for a 12th round pick?
Ok, now what we missed.
- Chase Edmonds. This one is puzzling considering how hard the Dolphins went after Edmonds in the off-season and handed the guy a big bag of cash. We discounted the oft-injured Mostert and once the latter started hot, there was no room for Edmonds.
- Russell Wilson. Unfortunately, we didn’t get our top target, Hurts, we were usually waiting for Wilson. A passing-first head coach with those weapons was a sure-fire recipe to let Russ cook, right? Gross.
- Josh Jacobs. Never saw it coming. We weren’t alone.
- Cole Kmet. Too little too late. Maybe NEXT year will be his breakout year (We may be saying this every year. Apologies in advance).
