QB-Lamar Jackson

Who else but Baltimore Ravens Lamar “Action” Jackson. Coming into the season Jackson was widely considered a solid backup Quarterback in fantasy, but nobody predicted he would turn into one of the best Quarterbacks in the league. So far this year he is the second best quarterback in fantasy football averaging 28.6 ppg, and only trailing the raining league MVP Patrick Mahomes. If could keep this up he will remain one of the threatening Fantasy football players in the league.

RB- Dalvin Cook

In Dalvin Cook’s first two seasons in the NFL, he has dealt with multiple injuries that has caused him to play only 15 games in his first two seasons. So entering his 3rd year in the league many fantasy owners were cautious in picking due to the fear that he will get injured yet again, but he made everyone who didn’t pick him regret it. In the last three games, he has been the best running back in fantasy, averaging 26.1 ppg. If Cook’s can just stay healthy there is no question he will remain one of, if not the best running back in all of fantasy.

WR-  Terry Mclaurin

Coming into the season almost nobody even heard of Terry Mclaurin, but he is now making a big name for himself. Mclaurin was drafted in the third round this year in the 2019 draft by the Washington Redskins, and because he was drafted so late, nobody had a clue of how good he was. Yet so far this year he has proven to be one of the best up and coming players, averaging the 10th most points by a wide receiver with 19.9 PPG. If he is able to produce the same volume year round, he could be in discussion as a WR1.

TE-  Darren Waller

Darren Waller has made the biggest turnaround in all of the NFL. Just a couple of years ago he had a drug problem, and was suspended from the NFL. After cleaning his life up he is back in the NFL, and joined the Oakland Raiders. Yet since he was suspended for two years and was joining a new team, nobody knew if he would be any good, well he has proven that he is. So far this year he is averaging 17.8 PPG, and is the third best Tight Ends in the league. If Waller doesn’t slow down, he will end up as one of the best Tight Ends in fantasy.
