Seven players who were fantasy gifts in 2018

Think of your fantasy roster like the gifts under a tree.

The decent players are your stocking stuffers. The duds were coal. Your injured players are sweaters from grandma you pretended to like. The best of the best? They're Nintendo Switches--what every GM asked for this year.

So boot up these seven fantasy stars like a game of Super Smash Bros. and enjoy battling it out for a league championship. The rest of us will leave more milk and cookies out next year and hope for better results.

NO-LOOK MAHOMES 😱😱😱 @patrickmahomes5

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes

Rams RB Todd Gurley

Gurley was the Rudolph of running backs this year--he always delivered when called upon. It doesn't get much better than 21 TDs in 15 games. That's the kind of fantasy stat line that'll go down in history (like George Washington!)

Titans RB Derrick Henry

Henry owners know that one-surprise-present-left-behind-the-tree feeling well after the past few weeks. The Titans' monstrous running back out up 408 rushing yards and six TDs in Weeks 14 and 15 alone. Talk about a perfect last-minute gift.

Colts TE Eric Ebron

Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins

Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey

Cowboys WR Amari Cooper

Dak Prescott must've been extra nice this year. His new No. 1 target, Amari Cooper, put up 674 receiving yards and 6 TD in seven games with Dallas. He's one re-gift Cowboys fans have been thrilled to receive.
