Fantasy NFL 2018 Review: Top Overachievers and Busts by Position

Our goal with this analysis is to not only tell you who the best players will be, but also tell you who the most underrated and overrated players are. This season Tyreek Hill was the number one wide receiver averaging 15.1 FPs per game. And he is has exceeded expectations. Based on average draft position he was expected to be the #11 wide receiver. Another good value this season was Jordan Thomas, the #27 ranked tight end based on total fantasy points who has greatly exceeded his draft expectation (#146 highest drafted tight end). On the other hand, a lot was expected from the #17 drafted quarterback, Alex Smith, but he was just the #32 quarterback based on total fantasy production making him the biggest disappointment among players who played a significant number of games. The table below shows the Top 10 Fantasy Players by Position, the Top 10 Overachievers and the Biggest Busts
