    Since we have a busts thread, we might as well do a thread for the guys who have been the opposite.

    I don't have him anywhere, but Pat Mahomes was a monster this year. I knew he had a ton of upside, but man, I did not see this coming. He was a borderline QB1 entering the year in one year leagues.

    Tyler Boyd is another one. I liked him coming out of Pitt, but his first few years were pretty underwhelming. I don't think I have him anywhere, either.

    (I'm only listing "don't have him anywheres" for my one year leagues.) I have Conner for one dynasty, but that's it. I don't have Mahomes at all. Same with Boyd.

    Conner - picked him in the last round of all three of my leagues (including one keeper). I have byes in all 3 because of him! Funny enough, I ended up trading him in the keeper for Barkley and Zeke (can't keep 1st round picks so I will be losing them).

    Mahomes and Conner are the most obvious. Lindsay/Peterson/Cohen/White have having some great years. I think Kittle exploded this year. JuJu really upped his production

    Mahomes and Connor.

    I targeted Mahomes as my starter in every league (only got him in 1 cause some people like to pick backup QBs), I'm not going to pretend I saw this but I knew he'd be a great fantasy player.

    I'm also so glad I took Conner with my last non-Kicker/DST pick in the league I drafted Bell #1 instead of throwing a dart.

    Robert Woods is another guy I got in the middles rounds who's been great for me.

    Phillip Lindsay !

    Shocked he hasn't been mentioned. Wish I had scooped him off the waiver wire.

    George Kittle. Wowzers, just lit up Denver's D for an 85 yard TD. He's close to being as good as Ertz at times.

    Tyler Boyd was a very nice waiver pick up.

    OJ Howard was my last pick in the draft and he was honestly awesome before the injuries.

    Mahomes for sure at QB, he was one of my late round QB targets. Matt Ryan has also been good for his cost.

    Chubb was my favorite rookie after Barkley and he's been a star. Conner, of course. Peterson was a late round guy I ended up with in some drafts.

    McCaffrey was someone I was higher on than most.

    I didn't do well with my WR picks this year, as mentioned in the bust thread. I did like Dante Pettis who has been great when healthy, but hardly a hit.

    I missed on McCaffrey in all three of my one year leagues. I didn't think he'd be doing this, but I loved him this year.

    I loved Mccaffrey and traded for him but then had him for 3 weeks where he got 0 touchdowns and traded him away thinking he wasn't going to get the red zone looks and that Cam was going to run in a bunch of tds. Now he's scored like 10 tds since then lol f***.

    I don't think he really flies under the radar at all but Travis Kelce has been even better than advertised for me. Helps that KC's offense has been next level all season.

    Kelce is averaging just under 20 points a game in PPR. That is ridiculous for a tight end. Considering the dumpster fire that tight end was this year, he was well worth a second round pick.

    I ended up "settling" for Kelce in a couple places where I wanted Gronk. He's been great.

    Mahomes has been absurd. If you drafted him, you're a team that likes to wait on a QB and probably isn't used to having anyone beyond a Matt Stafford type (at least before this year) or something that just gets you solid production. All of a sudden inserting a guy who balls out for 3/4 TDS and 300 yards a game on the regular is going to put anyone in the playoffs, along with the solid foundation you likely built up before drafting him.

    McCaffery has been a god send as well. Such a high floor in PPR leagues and has put together some big time performances down the stretch.

    And yeah, Kelce has been huge. Outside of that random first week, his next two worst weeks by a longshot were 5-61-0 and 6-46-0. In a PPR league you'd be perfectly happy to get that production from a TE outside of the top 4 or so.

    Mahomes has been such a difference maker, yeah. The best team I have I went Gurley #1, Mixon #24, then Mahomes late. Almost impossible for that team to lose the weeks Mixon has been healthy and went undefeated.

    I had a shot at both in round 2 and went with TK based solely on the fact Gronk is always good to miss a couple games. Glad I did.

    Mike Williams has a couple good games but is still behind Keenan Allen.

    Eric Ebron somehow has a bunch of TD's.

    Rams DEF was going to be good and I picked it up while everyone was fighting over MIN & JAX.

    Benched him two weeks straight. Just didn't think the Titans would commit to him like that again, they've been splitting RBs or randomly giving the ball to a certain back for a few years now.
