Fantasy Football Bonus Potential – WR – 2020

The difference between winning and losing in fantasy football week to week often comes down to a point or two. The potential for bonuses if your league scoring allows are really the cherry on the top. They can make the difference between a gloating filled victory and curse laden verbal assault loss. For the quarterback position the bonus usually comes in the 300, 400 or 500 passing yard category. For running backs and receivers the 100, 150- and 200-yard mark is the standard.

Michael Thomas dominated last season in every category including cashing in on several weekly bonuses. Chris Godwin also reached the bones threshold several times. Thomas had a career year and there is little chance of a repeat. Not that his skill or the Saints offense has regressed, it’s just hard to repeat with stat levels that high. Godwin has a more stable quarterback, but his bones potential was based on the wild west that was a Winston led offense.

The big surprise was A.J. Brown. The bonus calculation demonstrates the potential for Brown to have big games, but the game log exposes his inconsistency. Coming into his second year with Ryan Tannehill as the full-time starter, the sky is the limit for Brown.
