Week 17 Rankings Analysis: Nick Mariano vs. Industry Consensus

To recap Week 16: Matt Ryan did well, but so did a lot of other quarterbacks – a group that Matt Barkley wasn’t part of. Robert Kelley got hurt, but so did Carlos Hyde.

Biggest Breakouts of 2019: Quarterback

2019 was a very interesting season of fantasy football, to say the least. It's safe to say no one was banking on the season that we saw from Lamar Jackson but he wasn't the only one to stand out.
