Which players landed in the best spots for fantasy in 2020

    Former NFL safety Matt Bowen is a veteran of four teams over seven seasons, and now provides analysis for ESPN Insider.

LSU running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire looks like a prime fit for the Kansas City Chiefs offense. I could say the same for Arizona State wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk out in San Francisco. And Michael Pittman Jr. could post numbers in the Colts’ system given his pro-ready traits.

Let’s go back through the 2020 NFL draft class and focus on the rookies who are in a position — based on scheme fit and opportunity — to produce for your lineups this season. Here are the 15 players I’m putting on my fantasy radar.

RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Kansas City Chiefs

Since 2018, Patrick Mahomes leads the NFL with 7.7 yards per attempt when targeting running backs and has a 16-0 touchdown-interception ratio, via ESPN Stats & Information. That’s why I love the fit here for Edwards-Helaire, who caught 55 passes last season in LSU’s pro route tree. He’s a dynamic talent in the passing game, with the wiggle, shake and burst to separate from linebackers in coverage. And he can do work on the ground, too, with the contact balance and downhill juice to get to the second-level. Yes, Edwards-Helaire will share touches with Damien Williams in Kansas City, but the receiving traits put him in the RB2 range, with RB1 upside in the Chiefs’ explosive offense.
