Last year saw the breakout of first year starter Patrick Mahomes as he took the league by storm, throwing for 50 touchdown passes. George Kittle broke the record for receiving yards by a Tight End. James Connor went from the back of the depth chart to near the top of the rushing list. Every year Fantasy Football brings us its surprises and disappointments and every year there is someone worth taking a late round flier on. Today we'll look at which players are worth the risk and have the potential to make your fantasy football season a success.
Passing Yards - Derek Carr
Carr has proven that he can put up numbers even on a losing squad. Making the Pro Bowl in 2017 despite going 6-10. During Carr's last season he put up 4000+ yards even with the poor Raiders squad that went 4-12. This was with his best receiver being an inconsistent Amari Cooper and not even a full season of him at that. Never before has Carr had the amount of weapons at his disposal as he has this year. All-World receiver Antonio Brown is sure to boost Carr's numbers and when he isn't taking the top off defenses, burner Tyrell Williams is sure to make a difference as well. These two weapons coupled with a stronger offensive line has all the makings of a career season for the 3 time Pro Bowler.
