With Football about to start, everyone is excited for there team in the upcoming NFL season. But let’s face it, not everyone’s team is going to do as well as they hoped. So once your team’s season has seemed to be finished, we can all turn to something we can excel at: Fantasy Football.

Everyone is always looking to find the next big guy in Fantasy, someone to help your team down the stretch late in the season. These players are crucial to find and are necessary if you want to make a playoff run in your league. In this article I’m going to go over four guys I think are going to have breakout fantasy years that will help carry you to fantasy glory.

Kenny Golladay– Detroit Lions WR

Kenny Golladay enjoyed an excellent year last year after the departure of Golden Tate and the Injury to Marvin Jones Jr, Detroit’s #1 and #2 receivers. In the spotlight he stepped up and finished with 1063 yard receiving and five touchdowns. This year he’s expected to be the #1 WR, and with a pass-happy quarterback like Mathew Stafford you can expect him to get the Lion’s share of the passes. I expect another 1000 yard season and ten, if not more receiving touchdowns.

Courtland Sutton– Denver Broncos WR

Courtland Sutton would be one of your big risk players. He had an ok season last year under a Case Keenum led offense that was unimaginative and boring. After the Broncos cleared house last year they brought in Rich Scangarello, a long time QB coach for teams on all levels including the College of Idaho for a time. His new spin on the offense, influenced from Kyle shanahan’s tutelage over the last two years has molded him into something of a quarterback whisperer. With Joe Flacco coming in, I’m expecting a career renaissance, influenced by Scangrello’s offense and Flacco’s newfound confidence, you can expect to see Sutton have a breakout year and became a large and important cog in the Broncos offense.

T.J Hockenson– Detroit Lions TE

T.J Hockenson Was drafted 8th by the Lions in the first round of last year’s draft. From interviews he took, he was very clear that his mindset and outcome were that of a person that was ready to produce. He is expected to start for the Lions right away, and his size and mobility will make him an excellent target for Matthew Stafford to rely on. Stafford has not had a Tight End who could catch the flu for the past four but before that he was throwing a fifth of the time to his tight ends. In Darrel Bevell’s offense T.J will be a major redzone target and rack up lots of touchdowns in his rookie year, and will most likely put up an effort to earn him a spot on the all rookie team. T.J Hockenson is going to come charging out of the gates and you’re going to want to get him before your opponents do.

Darren Waller– Oakland Raiders TE

Darren Waller is a player most people have probably not heard of.  All of last year he had a forgettable year backing up Jared Cook at TE, but since Cook has been traded to the Saints, Waller is poised for an excellent year. This year you can expect Darren Waller to come out of nowhere and fill the gap that Cook has left in a big and explosive way. In an offense that favors the tight end coupled with a Quarterback that loves the Tight End, you can expect Waller to have a huge breakout season, to be conservative maybe 700 yards and 4 touchdowns, excellent for a TE. Darren Waller is your biggest lock to fantasy greatness this season.
