For some, drafting a fantasy football league is more important than Christmas. Generally speaking, picking your fantasy football team requires a lot of preparation. You have to select your draft, keep an updated log of player performance, stats, injuries, keep an eye on sleepers with potential breakout and draft high scoring positions (RB, WR, QB). It’s a lot of work, so we’ve decided to help you out! Here’s a list of players to get you into the finals!
Quarterback: Aaron Rodgers – Green Bay Packers
Considering that the Packers’ main wide receiver, Nelson, back in the lineup it’s safe to assume that Rodgers will improve in 2016. In case you’re wondering what his statistics are, has has made 31 touchdowns thrown and 3,821 yards.
Running Back: Arian Foster – Free Agent
Although Arian Foster’s best years might be behind him, this does not make him a bad player. We still think that he’s pretty good. The 2010 NFL champion has still got a lot to give and his current situation as a free agent makes him a player to follow in the upcoming weeks. We think that he’ll recover from 2015 achilles tendon rupture.
Foster was let go of by the Texans in March this year, and rumor has it that the New England Patriots or Denver Broncos are going to be hosting him. He made 1,246 yards in 2014, and we’re waiting for a comeback this season!
Wide Receiver: Amari Cooper – Oakland Raiders
Coming in at 4th place in a Raiders draft last season, Amari Cooper had a fantastic year in 2015, and we expect him to thrive even more. Cooper has impressive stats: 72 receptions, 1,070 yards, and 6 TDs. The 21-year-old has potential for improvement, but you should definitely not hesitate to include Cooper in your fantasy football team, because the kid is aiming for the skies.
Tight-End: Nick Vannet – Seattle Seahawks
Including a rookie is a great way to balance out your draft rounds. Consider Nick Vannet when drafting your team. He is a bit of a surprise that might be worth it. Jimmy Graham is missing the start of the season due to a torn right patella tendon. This gives Vannet the possibility to get time on the pitch at the beginning of the season.
Kick: Justin Tucker – Baltimore Ravens
A popular pick in 2015 fantasy football leagues, Justin Tucker is an excellent choice for your team’s kicker in the 2016 draft. At the age of 26, Tucker is reaching the peek of his career. In 3 seasons with NFL he has an average of 89.9% field goals, 33 average field goals. The Ravens placed a franchise tag on him in February. As John Harbaugh’s offense give Tucker a lot of scoring possibilities, the 2012 AFC Champion should make your fantasy team look good once again.
Feel ready to draft? All of these players have what it takes to give your fantasy league draft an excellent payback. But do keep an eye on their general shape, and check out bookie predictions on their performances this upcoming season.
