2020 Fantasy Football – 5 Early Undervalued Players

on

Each new fantasy football season brings along great value as players recover from injury-plagued campaigns, bouncing back to fantasy relevance. Some were able to give out great results in the last season, though the fantasy football community does not buy-in for various reasons. Here’s a laydown of the most undervalued players in fantasy football.

Baker Mayfield – Cleveland Browns Quarterback

After being among the top five 2019 quarterbacks, Baker Mayfield is currently ranked outside the top 15 QBs. As such, Baker is the perfect definition of a post-hype player. Last year, Baker faced the most challenging schedules for any quarterback, though such difficulty will most likely regress this year.

Even with such a lackluster offensive lineup, Mayfield was able to record a 40.6% completion under pressure, which was the sixth-best in the league. Besides the schedule, the team’s head coach is the only difference between this year and 2019 for Mayfield.

Hunter Renfrow – Las Vegas Raiders Wide Receiver

Last season, there weren’t many fantasy football bright stars, though Hunter Renfrow managed to start making his presence widely known starting from week 8.  Starting from week to 12 of the regular season, Renfrow managed to increase his workload, averaging more than five targets per game.

Renfrow managed to record an impressive 12.8 yards per catch in the last season, becoming a solid starter for the Raiders. However, his performance remained intriguing after coming back from his injury break. As such, Renfrow is among the best players to wager if you’re looking for the most valuable betting tips on the NFL.

Curtis Samuel – Carolina Panthers Wide Receiver

Arguably the unluckiest wide receiver in the NFL, Curtis Samuel was among the most fierce players in the Carolina Panther’s squad last season. In 2019, his low production was extremely disappointing to the Panthers’ fans considering his enormous preseason hype, though he managed to record a better performance than his numbers indicate.

Samuel had the most significant discrepancy between his actual receiving yards and the air yards in the NFL, recording 200 yards above the second-best player. His 2019 record includes many overthrows besides blazing over opposing secondary player’s, though the Panthers are set to upgrade the QB position this offseason.

Raheem Mostert – San Francisco Running Back

When a player records a good postseason game, fans tend to over evaluate his performance in fantasy football in the coming season.  However, the opposite is true when talking about the San Francisco football squad. Most fans don’t give credit where due.

Mozart managed to record 220 yards and four touchdowns in the NFC championship match against the Green Bay Packers, clocking ten goals and 952 yards from scrimmage in the regular season. Despite failing to record double digits between week 4 and 12, he managed to rank 24th in the fantasy running back list.

John Brown – Buffalo Bills Wide Receiver

As a Buffalo Bill, John Brown managed to record six touchdowns, 1060 yards and 72 receptions. John was the first wide receiver to record 1000 yards for the Bills since Sammy Watkins in 2015. Brown surprised many fans after managing to be among the top 15 drafts in April’s NFL draft, so don’t get surprised if he manages to continue with his resurgence in 2020.
