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 NFC West. This will likely be the most competitive division this year. The 49ers, Rams and Seahawks were all good last year. This year, many expect the Cardinals to be much improved with the addition of DeAndre Hopkins and the improvement of Kyler Murray. Only time will tell.

Coming up first, a breakout star on the San Francisco 49ers.
