Jordan Love, QB, Green Bay Packers

Just when the "bust" label was starting to be thrown around prevalently, Jordan Love responded with a fantastic season. His 32 touchdown passes trailed only Dak Prescott in the entire league and his 4,159 passing yards were good for seventh.

He also made some throws that would have made the man he used to sit behind, Aaron Rodgers, quite proud. If you are a manager that has Love on your dynasty roster, his young corps of wide receivers is also quite enticing, leading many to believe that this level of play will only get better in the future.

Love had to wait his turn behind Rodgers and in the games he had played prior to this season where he became the starter, his performance was a little shaky. That likely led many to believe that this would be a quiet year for the first-round pick, but he turned in a solid season.
