We here at the Buzz take Fantasy Football seriously. Let’s take a dive into this world and see who were some of the biggest losers, and winners of this season. Who was our Fantasy Football MVP? Let’s get it.
QB: Patrick Mahomes (457.80)- Another solid year for the third year QB. He lead all quarterbacks this year in fantasy.
WR: Davante Adams (346.80)- Adams finishes this year as the number 1 WR in fantasy football for the first time in his career. A highly talented receiver who has always been hampered by injuries. What we witnessed this year between Adams and Rodgers was for the history books.
RB: Alvin Kamara (382.24) – In what will go down as one of the greatest championship round performances ever in fantasy football is automatically a winner. Kamara put together a fantasy season for the ages at the RB position. A 5 tool player that transcends all phases of the game in reality and fantasy.
TE: Travis Kelce (314.76) – Kelce is the best TE in the game today…there I said it. A player that gets the majority of the targets at the Tight End position across the entire league. Kelce should bring smiles to all fantasy owners that drafted him in rounds 1-2. Kelce is consistent and brings owners a certain type of calmness when they have him in their starting lineup weekly.
Flex: Dalvin Cook (339.80) – Cook has inserted himself into a top 5 pick in next year drafts in 2021. Its time fantasy managers leave his injuries in the past and be confident in selecting him in early 1st rounds. A player that is another 5 tool back that managers should smile every time he gets the rock. Big year for Cook.
QB: Carson Wentz (237.40) – Wentz ADP was being drafted between 10th-12th rounds in most leagues, he finished QB 21. Wentz finished last year as QB 9. A huge drop off for the newly paid QB. Wentz was benched for the rookie Jalen Hurts which is something for dynasty, and keeper league managers need to keep their eyes on. Huge disappointment for Wentz owners this year.
WR: Cooper Kupp (211.20) – Cooper Kupp was being drafted in 4th-6th rounds. He finished this year as WR 20. In 2019 Kupp finished as WR3. This new offensive scheme that HC Mcvay inserted destroyed a lot of production for Kupp and Woods. Highly disappointing for Kupp owners in which was a highly inconsistent season for from Kupp.
RB: Ezekiel Elliot (208.60) – Zeke, oh Zeke. What happened? Only 5 TD on the year? Kamara got 6 in one game. Zeke finished as RB5 in 2019. Big expectations came with Zeke heading into this season and then Dak was lost for the year. So even more you thought Zeke was gonna kill it. Zeke was drafted between 1st-5th overall in most leagues. Definitely a disappointment this year for fantasy managers that drafted him as their 1st round pick.
TE: Jared Cook (116.10) – A rough, rough year for Tight Ends this year. There was one though who has a huge drop off from 2019 to 2020. Jared Cook was TE7 in 2019, he finished as TE20. In a Saints offense that is truly loaded…what gives Cook? Cook was going anywhere between 10th-13th rounds in most leagues. Weak year from Cook.
Waiver Wire Pickups of the Year:
RB: James Robinson (251.40) – Jaguars needed a running back after cutting Leonard Fournette. Here came the savior in James Robinson who absolutely destroyed it this season for fantasy managers who took the risk and picked him up or bid for him. He was easily the Waiver Wire pickup of the year.
QB: Joe Burrow (232.27) – A huge pickup for most managers who don’t draft Quarterbacks or lost a QB due to season long injuries. Burrow was on a tear before he was gone for the season. He is going to be truly special for years to come in the world of fantasy and reality.
WR: Chase Claypool (194.80) – Does it seem like the Pittsburgh Steelers are WR superstar developers? It’s like they can’t miss on when they draft for this position. Claypool came out and turned heads real quick with his game. Available across leagues over 75 percent by week 3. Then once he broke out he was getting snatched up everywhere.
TE: Logan Thomas (163.92) – Thomas who was a former QB in college absolutely destroyed it this year for the WFT. A guy that was highly available through 8 weeks in majority of leagues. Logan enjoyed an amazing fantasy season as he finished TE5.
RB: Alvin Kamara
