The NFL season is slowly getting closer, which means that the fantasy football season is even closer. Before the real season starts, fans need to hold their fantasy draft. Without any preseason games, it’ll be a little more difficult to decide on the players you want. Fortunately, we have decided to help by putting together a list of the players you must have on your fantasy football this season.
Odds are, you aren’t going to be able to grab Patrick Mahomes, Lamar Jackson, or even Kyler Murray in your fantasy draft. Those guys are hot commodities who are going to be drafted a little too early for quarterbacks. But most fans will forget about Wilson, who was an elite fantasy quarterback last season and a legitimate MVP candidate.
The Seattle defense is average, meaning it’s on Wilson to carry the Seahawks. Fortunately, he has the playmakers around him to put up big passing numbers. He’ll also do enough damage with his legs to make him a great value pick once Mahomes and Jackson are off the board.
Whether you realized it or not, Sutton is now someone who should be an automatic starter on fantasy teams. The Broncos are loaded with young receivers, but there’s no way of knowing what they’ll get from them.
That means young Drew Lock will be looking in Sutton’s direction a lot. He’s already proven that he can be the focal point of Denver’s passing game and has a good rapport with Lock. That makes him a safe bet to be a steady fantasy contributor week after week.
One word: touches. The Eagles have no proven options sitting behind Sanders on the depth chart, which means the second-year man out of Penn State is going to get an abundance of touches this season. Keep in mind that Sanders also caught 50 passes last year, so he’s an important part of the passing attack as well.
The Eagles have a solid offensive line and will want to keep as much pressure off Carson Wentz as possible, which means Sanders is going to have a lot of opportunities every week to rack up yards on the ground.
Ridley has flown a little under the radar during his first two seasons, but his third pro season could be his coming-out party. The Falcons have lost some of their complementary receivers, which means that Matt Ryan is going to look at Ridley when defenses double-team Julio Jones.
With the speed to get behind the defense and the quickness to create missed tackles in space, Ridley has big-play ability and will be a fantasy gem in 2020.
Despite scoring just four touchdowns, Moore did a lot of great things in 2019. Just think of how much better he can be with Teddy Bridgewater at quarterback as opposed to Kyle Allen.
Remember that teams will stack the box against Christian McCaffrey, creating space in the secondary for Moore to use his speed. The amazing part about Moore is he’s still 23 and already has two productive seasons under his belt. The best could be yet to come in 2020.
