NFL FANTASY BUSTS 2020
Article written by Dylan Devine (7/21/20)
In today’s article I will be giving my picks on one player at each position that I believe you should avoid in your fantasy drafts.
Deshaun Watson (Houston Texans) – Watson is one of the best quarterback’s in the NFL without a doubt. But I don’t see him being a top five fantasy QB. The loss of Deandre Hopkins is going to really hurt Watson and his production. Hopkins had 1,100 of Watson’s 3,800 passing yards last season. The Texans have Will Fuller and Brandin Cooks as solid options for Watson to pass the ball to, but I don’t see Watson matching the same production he has had in past seasons due to the loss of Hopkins.
Devin Singletary (Buffalo Bills) – Buffalo has a top rushing QB in Josh Allen who takes away plenty of touchdown’s from the RB’s. The Bills also picked up Zack Moss which could lead to Singletary getting less touches. I’d avoid Singletary in your draft’s this year.
Courtland Sutton (Denver Broncos) – Courtland Sutton is great, don’t get me wrong. But I strongly believe his number one spot is going to be taken away by rookie WR Jerry Jeudy this season. Sutton not being WR1 anymore means he’ll be getting less targets. I wouldn’t completely ignore Sutton in your draft’s, but I wouldn’t bet on him as your WR1 or WR2.
Rob Gronkowski (Tampa Bay Buccaneers) – I feel like this is an obvious one. Gronk is coming off a year of “retirement”. Yes he’s kept himself in shape, but he’s going to be playing under a whole new offense, new coach, and new teammates aside from TB12. Gronk was always Brady’s number one guy in New England but I don’t see that happening in Tampa Bay. Brady has Mike Evans and Chris Godwin to pass the ball to. Gronk will still get some targets obviously, but I see no chance of him having the same production he had in New England. Don’t waste any of your first at least five picks on him. There are plenty of other tight ends to pick up before Gronk.
