In fantasy football, too often we lament on misses and draft day mistakes. The Vanguard by Veridian founders @itsharristime & @Masterjune70 is to celebrate "our guys" that are absolutely smashing it and leading the fantasy football charge from the previous week. Sometimes you just need to celebrate being awesome.
Veridian Vanguard: Crushing Fantasy Football in Week 13
Josh Allen, Buffalo Bills
I believe we are well past the point of debate on Josh Allen. He is exceptional. A rocket of an arm with incredible rushing upside is the type of Konami Code quarterback we seek in fantasy football. The incredible thing about Allen is he continues to improve his accuracy which has historically been nearly impossible for quarter backs to do. The future is bring for this former Cowboy and Bills Mafia for many years to come.
With clear chemistry with WR1 Stefan Diggs and Allen playing the role of goal line running back, performances like he had in Week 13 (375 Yards, 4 TDs, 30.10 fantasy points) will help you win fantasy championships for years to come.
Check out the entire Buffalo lineup here.
James Robinson, Jacksonville Jaguars
You've got to love the feel good story of undrafted rookie free agent James Robinson coming in for the Jaguars and immediately making an impact in Week 1. Robinson is a Top 5 running back, and showed out again in Week 13 against the Vikings rushing for 76 yards and a TD while also putting up 30 as a receiver. Robinson's versatilty allows him to be used on every down, and he commands one of the highest running back snap shares in the league. Robinson truly is an RB1.
Justin Jefferson, Minnesota Vikings
It should be no surprise that Justin Jefferson continues to wow. In rookie drafts, talent for wide receivers should always be > than landing spot. We learnt this with A.J Brown and the Titans, and "El Jefe" continues to show the world why the Vikings were so high on him. In Week 13, Jefferson put up 27.30 fantasy points and 121 receiving yards + a TD. Jefferson is WR9 in fantasy football and is currently the #1 rookie wide receiver in the stacked 2020 draft class.
The future is bright for El Jefe and the Minnesota Vikings.
