Which of the NFL’s fairy tale characters is the best?

The best NFL player is a mystery.

You might think he’d be the player of the year, but in reality he’s been the most interesting player to watch.

This is due in part to his uncanny ability to pick up new habits, and he has the ability to create an entirely new identity for himself every time he plays.

In his career, he has become an enigma, but there is no way to know if he is a good or bad player.

Here are our five best fantasy football players this season.


Josh Norman, Panthers QB (11th) Norman was the NFL Player of the Week for Week 12 after completing 21 of 34 passes for 243 yards and two touchdowns.

He also had three picks.

Norman was on pace to finish with a career-high in interceptions (13) and touchdown passes (17).

He has an uncanny ability as a quarterback, as he’s averaged a completion percentage of 75.4 and completed 64.6 percent of his passes in the regular season.

His biggest problem has been avoiding bad throws and has had to rely on his legs to carry him the entire way.

If he stays healthy, this will be a solid fantasy option.

Norman will be available in multiple leagues.


Tom Brady, Patriots QB (10th) Brady had the NFL Rookie of the Year award this week.

The Patriots are currently 5-1 with Brady at the helm.

He’s been a top-five fantasy quarterback in every season since 2010, including this season, when he completed 61.9 percent of passes and threw for 4,918 yards and 29 touchdowns.

His accuracy has improved each season, which is one of the reasons he’s become a very solid fantasy quarterback this year.

Brady will be one of your top quarterbacks if he’s on your roster.


Matthew Stafford, Lions QB (8th) Stafford is the only quarterback in fantasy football history to win at least 10 games in every year he’s started, with three of them coming in his first three seasons.

His last three seasons have been equally productive.

Stafford had the highest completion percentage in the NFL during the regular-season, completing 61.3 percent of the passes and throwing for 3,983 yards and 21 touchdowns.

There’s no question Stafford has improved this season and is a more complete player this year than he was in 2015.

He has more passing yards, touchdowns and touchdowns thrown than any quarterback in NFL history, and his completion percentage is up from 75.2 in 2014.

He was ranked as the No. 10 fantasy quarterback heading into the season, but now he’s ranked as a top 10 fantasy player.

Stafford has a chance to become the first quarterback in history to throw for more than 3,000 yards and four touchdowns in three straight seasons, which would make him the first player since Teddy Bridgewater in 2010.


Blake Bortles, Jaguars QB (7th) Bortels has had a rough go of it as a starter over the past couple of seasons.

He completed only 47.2 percent of throws in 2016, which was the second-worst rate in the league.

He struggled throwing deep in 2016 and struggled completing deep passes this year, with two interceptions and seven drops.

He’ll need to improve his accuracy, and there’s no way he’s a top five fantasy quarterback.


Dak Prescott, Cowboys QB (5th) Prescott had an incredible week in Week 12, completing 25 of 31 passes for 265 yards and a touchdown.

He had three interceptions and four passes batted down, but he also had seven rushing touchdowns.

Prescott was able to make the most of his opportunities, with a completion rate of 70.9, which ranked sixth among quarterbacks.

His best game came against the Saints, where he had an interception and two sacks.

He won’t be a fantasy player in your league unless he’s an elite fantasy quarterback, and you should probably avoid him this week in leagues that have a playoff bye.
