Five Big Fantasy Breakout Candidates for 2015

In fantasy football, Breakout players have already established their skill but also have real potential for advancement. They are the ones to draft before another league may snatch them. These investments can pay dividends. Who are 2015’s players to watch?

1. Miami Dolphins- Running Back Lamar Miller

Last year was a record-setting one for Miller. He had 1,099 rush yards and eight touchdowns. Miller is in his third pro season. He needed some time to acclimate to the NFL, but the former Miami Hurricane player has done well. It is anticipated that he will have at least ten scores this year and 1,700 rush yards. He is in the prime of his career. He is a real value in Round 4, especially for owners who stock up early.

2. Dallas Cowboys-Running Back Joseph Randle

When DeMarco Murray left the Dallas Cowboys, it left the team with a real deficit. However, Randle is not the only one taking the slack. Darren McFadden and Lance Dunbar are also getting numerous touchdowns too. Randle does come with a few risks though the potential is there. The offensive line is built for run-blocking; this helps the dynamic back ease into their starting role. Randle has 105 professional carries, and he isn’t much of a receiver. As a rookie, he had a 3.0 yards-per-carry average that was not so hot. However, in 2014 his average went up to 6.7. He’s never going to be a successful full-time player, but he has explosive playmaking ability. He is a bit risky but should work fine as a running back that can come in at the fourth round.

3. Kansas City Chiefs-Tight End Travis Kelce

With 67 receptions and five touchdowns, 2014 was a breakout year for Kelce. He was a rookie in 2013, but he tore his anterior cruciate ligament during regular duty. Many doubt that he will have the ability to improve over last season, but there is potential. Jeremy Maclin was added as a wide receiver to the team. The Chiefs will pass progression so that Kelce is second. With his track record, there is no reason Kelce won’t win the battle 9 out of 10 times. The former Cincinnati Bearcat player will be strongest in the red zone.

4. Oakland Raiders-Running Back Latavius Murray

Many say that Murray reminds them of Bo Jackson. He has record speeds at 4.38 on the 40. His vision seems to be above-average too. He played his second year in 2014. He received a 90-yard touchdown and four carriers that went over 20 yards. His average of 5.2 yards is impressive. He makes for a fascinating RB3. The odds are good that Murray will remain healthy and shine in the game.

5. Minnesota Vikings-Tight End Kyle Rudolph

Dubbed the “Red Zone Reindeer,” Rudolph shows real talent. In 2012, he scored nine touchdowns on 53 catches in 2012. He is also desirable as he is in the prime of his career. At 26, he has several years ahead of him. When he was in the fifth-year offseason, he worked with Vikings quarterback, Teddy Bridgewater. The focus of this training was conditioning. A former Golden Domer, he had many injuries last years that caused him to sit out. While some may not consider him a breakout candidate, topping his scores will be difficult. His TE2 price will come with a promise, though.
