Mitchell Trubisky, James Conner, and Eric Ebron all helped many fantasy teams throughout the year.

NFL

Most fantasy football championship games were played in Week 16. Some of the players who helped to win those leagues, such as Todd Gurley and Antonio Brown, were expected to do so.

As always though, there were players, who weren’t really on draft radars, who ended up playing a large role for those that picked them up from the free agent list.

Here are the top fantasy football players in 2018 who were likely undrafted. The list features one quarterback, two running backs, two wide receivers, and one tight end.

In order to be eligible for the list, the player must have had an average draft position after 150 according to Fantasy Pros (150 players are drafted in a 10-team, 15-round league).

Some honorable mentions include Dak Prescott (Cowboys), Baker Mayfield (Browns), Lamar Jackson (Ravens) at quarterback, T.J. Yeldon (Jaguars), Gus Edwards (Ravens) at running back, Dede Westbrook (Jaguars), Chris Godwin (Buccaneers) at wide receiver, and Jared Cook (Raiders), Austin Hooper (Falcons) at tight end.

Quarterback - Mitchell Trubisky, Bears

The second overall pick in 2017, Trubisky has rebounded from a miserable rookie season. Despite missing two games, he has thrown for 3,060 yards and 24 touchdowns. The 24-year-old has also ran for 405 yards and three touchdowns. In seven of his 13 outings, Trubisky has thrown at least two touchdown passes.

Running back - James Conner, Steelers

Most drafts took place before anyone knew Le'Veon Bell would not just hold out in Week 1, but the entire season. While Conner unfortunately missed most fantasy playoffs due to injury (has missed the last three games), he filled in more than admirably for Bell. In 12 games, he has rushed for 909 yards and 12 touchdowns while adding 52 catches for 467 yards. He has five games, on the year, with multiple touchdown runs.
