If there was one running back I that I trust the least, it’s Dalvin Cook. This guy cannot be trusted due to the fact that he is the most injury prone top running back in the NFL. The fact of the matter is that he has not finished a season in the past three years and I like to study history when it comes to players and fantasy football. In his first 2 years he played 15 games in 2 seasons. In 2019 he missed two full games, and half of two other games.
On top of all this he has not played in a fantasy football championship ever. Yet the mainstream currently have Cook ranked top 4 amongst RB’s going into 2020. My mind is blown with the recency bias. There is also talk about Cook potentially holding out for the 2020 season, unless he gets paid a big mega contract.
Do yourself a big favor and don’t take the risk of draft Cook in the first round, he will get hurt again.
When I look at players that could bust at the running back position, the first person that comes to mind is Nick Chubb. The reasoning here is very simple. As long as Kareem Hunt is there, Nick Chubb’s fantasy football value will suffer. The facts are there, Kareem Hunt outscored Chubb in 6 out of the 8 games they played together in 2019 in PPR scoring. To be quite honest, talent wise Kareem Hunt is the better back and people forget that a few years ago he was the leagues rushing leader.
The problem with the mainstream consensus aside from a lot of things, is that they have a lot of recency bias. Nick Chubb is currently ranked in the top 10 RB rankings because of his solid performance in 2019. No one is looking at the Kareem Hunt factor seriously. Once you factor in Kareem for an entire season, then Chubb falls down to a low end RB 2 Status.
I would genuinely hate for you guys to draft Chubb at the end of the 1st round only to be disappointed with Hunt stealing away more than 50% of the fantasy points. Stay away from Nick Chubb in 2020 fantasy football! Be sure to get my 16 Rounds Draft Solution to know who to draft and when.
You know how I typically feel about players going to new teams, I usually stay away. In this case, we are talking about one of the best receivers in the game, DeAndre Hopkins. I am going to stay away from him in this case and here is why. The Cardinals have a system that is designed to line up with 4 wide receivers. Kyler and Hopkins have not developed the rapport together. Also, Larry Fitzgerald led the Cardinals in targets last season and maxed out at 109 which was ranked 25th amongst wide receivers. Based on last year there doesn’t seem to be enough targets to go around to make Hopkins a top 5 wide receiver. Yet no one is talking about this.
The mainstream yet again by default and player popularity have Hopkins ranked top 5. I am staying far away from DeAndre Hopkins in 2020 fantasy football. He is a potential bust in my eyes based on the research I have done.
Alvin Kamara and Josh Jacobs
You are going to have to watch the video here. I don’t agree with the Bald Guy on Josh Jacobs and Kamara busting. I would consider drafting both of them in Fantasy Football 2020. The only concern is that Alvin is always in a committee and that is something I avoid in Round one of my fantasy football draft.
