Welcome back to the fantasy forum, you place for all things fantasy football.

“Well, how’d your fantasy drafts go this year,” a friend asked me yesterday. The answer?

No idea.

In what will hopefully be the oddest offseason we’ll ever experience, it’s tough to know what to make of football in 2020. I enjoy fantasy football but it’s easy to see in a year like this just how much of a privilege football is to have in our lives. That said, I’m already sad I have no stake in Clyde Edwards-Helaire or as was going around on the Twitter machine last night, The Fresh Prince of Helaire...

Before we go any further, if you want to play some fantasy games with WCG this year, we’re running a daily fantasy league where you get to build a new team each week with a budget. It’s fun, go sign up now!

My fantasy success this year is going to depend largely on Alvin Kamara, Miles Sanders, and young wide receivers like Terry McLaurin and Jerry Jeudy. When the dust settled, those were the players on at least two of my three rosters.

I believe in the Kyler Murray breakout, grabbing one share, but failing to get significant pieces of his receiving corps. I acquired a piece of other high-powered offenses like Baltimore with JK Dobbins, the Saints with Kamara and Michael Thomas, and the Bears with Allen Robinson...

Okay, that last one was just to see if you were paying attention. Obviously, Robinson is a good bet to continue his success, regardless of the quarterback situation, but what other Bears are you willing to gamble on? I have Tarik Cohen in a 0.5 PPR league and I feel pretty comfortable plugging him into the flex role. Did anyone invest anywhere else in this offense?

Let me know who your make or break players are this season in the comments below or hit me up on Twitter @gridironborn.
