Another fantasy season and another plethora of star players flaming out instead of flying high, unanticipated injuries and downright weird bounces of the ball have left many of us on the outside looking in at the fantasy playoffs. However, if you had a great #FFL season, we can guarantee that you had an unanticipated pick-up emerge and dominate the competition.Vote below and tell us who you think was 2015’s best after-draft addition in the Fantasy Sports Radio’s 2015 Most Valuable Pick-Up poll!

The seven year veteran came out of nowhere to seize Cleveland’s starting tight end job out of training camp. Barnidge is on his way to surpass 1,000 receiving yards and already has more receptions this season than in his entire career coming into 2015.

Most people who drafted Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles assumed Knile Davis would be his backup, but when Charles went down with a season-ending injury in Week 5, it was West who took over. The second year pro had a stretch of three straight games with at least 20 carries and a touchdown.

The Seahawks were so impressed with Rawls in training camp, they released Robert Turbin and traded much-hyped Christine Michael away to create a spot on the roster. When Marshawn Lynch was injured, the fantasy football world saw why Seattle made the moves. Rawls looked dominant when given the opportunity, rushing for over 5 yards a carry and eclipsing the 100-yard mark 4 times including a 209 yard effort in Week 11.

 

Dion Lewis, RB, New England

In his fourth year in the league, Lewis found a home when he signed with the Patriots, his 3rd NFL team. While undrafted in fantasy football leagues, he became a “must-add” after Week 1 and helped his owners position their teams for a playoff run prior to suffering a season-ending injury.

No longer “CJ2K” but Chris Johnson proved to be more than effective when he signed with the Cardinals. Though he didn’t return to his 2,000-yard form from 2009, he did bring stability to the backfield in Arizona and to fantasy teams everywhere.

 

Travis Benjamin, WR, Cleveland

If there were any Cleveland wide receivers on your roster this preseason, you probably weren’t too happy with your team. Then, in walked Travis Benjamin, who quickly became the one to own in the Browns passing game by scoring touchdowns in the first three games of the year.
