2013 Fantasy Football Breakout Players

We’re always looking for that breakout player in fantasy football — those guys that come out of nowhere to put up huge fantasy numbers.

The perfect example of this is running back C.J. Spiller and his breakout performance during the 2012 season. Take a look at Spiller’s meteoric rise in the fantasy community since he came into the league:

Year ADP Overall Ranking
2011 10.1 118.3
2012 9.03 98.6
2013 1.06 5.9

Spiller has gone from a player who could be drafted in the later rounds during his first years in the league to a first-round pick in any type of league for the 2013 season. He always had the talent, but it wasn’t until an opportunity arose that we all started to see his true value.

So, which players can be this year’s Spiller? Which players can go from being a late-round draft pick this year to become a top pick in next year’s draft? Let’s take a look at a potential breakout player at each position.
