The 2016 fantasy football season has come and pass before our eyes. Now we are going to look back on a couple of cheers (good) and a couple of jeers (bad) players this year. We’ll also pick one colossal bust and another player that suffered from injuries.
Cheers: Surprise Players of the Year
Johnny Slokes: Jordan Howard - How great has this guy been? 9 games over 100 yards from scrimmage, 7th in the league in rushing yards with 1,178 with another 298 receiving. He only needs 61 yards to break the Bears rookie rushing title. Waiver wire darling of the year.
K-Mill: Michael Thomas - In a year with a lot of focus going towards Laquon Treadwell and Corey Coleman, it was Michael Thomas that out produced both of them. Finishing at WR11 in PPR scoring, has 8 TDs and was either drafted late in drafts or was found on the waivers.
Honorable mentions: Matt Ryan, Jay Ajayi, Spencer Ware, Rishard Matthews and Tyrell Williams.
Jeers: The Busted and Bruised
Johnny Slokes: Allen Robinson - What do Rishard Matthews, Garcon, Crowder, Pryor, Mike Wallace, Thielen, Kenny Britt, Tyrell Williams, and Devante Adams all have in common? They all have more PPR points than Allen Robinson. Certainly it was going to be hard to duplicate 80 receptions for 1,400 yards and 14 TDs but 68 receptions for 801 yards and 6 TDs is not what we had in mind.
K-Mill: Keenan Allen - I know me and Johnny were both high on Keenan this year and it’s just terrible that he loses another year of his prime and another year with the aging Phillip Rivers. If you were one of those people that took Hopkins in the first then followed up with Keenan, it was probably a long year for you.
Dishonorable mentions: DeAndre Hopkins, Adrian Peterson, Doug Martin, Sammy Watkins, Jamaal Charles and Michael Floyd
We will have our full rewards show later on this week to highlight more players!
