As we wait to see exactly what the NFL Season will look like, we start to do our research and see which players are poised to have breakout seasons in 2020. These are the players that will carry you to your fantasy football championship.
I am going to highlight my favorite breakout candidate for each NFL team as well as mention some players that are being undervalued in Fantasy Football drafts. I have identified players that are poised for breakout seasons similar to what we saw last year from Lamar Jackson, Chris Godwin or Kenny Golladay.
These players are being ‘slept on’ currently in fantasy football. These are the players that will greatly exceed everyone’s expectations. When I search for a breakout candidate, I look for players that are being drafted later in your fantasy drafts. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to tell you to draft Christian McCaffrey or Patrick Mahomes. We are looking for players that are underrated and will return great value from where you will be taking them in your draft.
Today, we focus on the AFC West. Home to the Broncos, Chargers, Chiefs and Raiders. The Broncos and Chargers are in rebuild mode after drafting quarterbacks early in the last two drafts. The Chiefs are the reigning Super Bowl Champs and have Pat Mahomes so they are set for the next decade plus. And then you have the Raiders. Yikes. Not really sure what they are doing, but then again, I don’t know if they know what they are doing. Regardless, let’s highlight a breakout fantasy football player for each of these teams.
First up, the Denver Broncos.
