NFL Guess Who - Training Camp Hype 7/26/18

An in-depth look at nameless players

Fantasy football is a tricky game to play. Knowing the name behind the stats often obfuscates the real value, or lack thereof, in that player. "Oh that guy? That was just a fluke." or "I love that guy, he had a huge season back in 2013. Won me a ship." So we're going to take a look at NFL player profiles without the name attached, because it's not really the name that matters. All stats referenced are PPR and from 2017 unless otherwise specified. See if you can guess the player I'm detailing. Feel free to suggest my next profile in the comments!
