League winners. We’ve been looking for them all season. Now, the time has come for players to truly earn the moniker of “league winner”. Let’s take a look at who we’re trusting to lead us to the promised land this year.
Justin Jefferson isn’t going to win Offensive Rookie of the Year, but he is certainly in the conversation for runner-up. Coming into the season, it was expected that Jefferson would establish himself as the future for the Vikings at the wide receiver position following the departure of Stefon Diggs. Little did we know he would also establish himself as the present. His route running already ranks as among the best in the league and, with Adam Thielen drawing the opposing team’s best corner, Jefferson is feasting against weaker competition. He has a great matchup against Tampa Bay in Week 14 followed by a tougher game against Chicago before finishing against New Orleans. I’d leave him on the bench Week 15, but I’d bet on him to score big points the other two games.
Gaskin is a great example of a waiver-wire gem that will likely be over-drafted next season, in my opinion. For now, though, he serves as an RB2 on an offense that is growing and has invested in him as their bell cow for this year. In his return from IR, he rushed the ball 21 times for 90 yards and added two catches for 51 yards. Clearly, he’s healthy and ready to roll and if you gave him in your lineup at the flex position he’s going to be a reason why you win your league.
It’s incredible and a miracle. After being left for dead by fantasy managers everywhere, Corey Davis has established himself as a solid WR2 for the rest of the season. Chances are if you’re in the playoffs, Corey Davis is more of your flex than your WR1. Davis has every chance to continue producing as he operates in a prolific Titans offense and is a league-winner. I believe it’s a sign of things to come as he becomes a solid WR2 for the rest of his career.
