Every year there are players who unexpectedly emerge as fantasy football studs, and they can be the difference between victory and defeat.

Each and every year, even the greatest of fantasy football experts are caught off guard by unproven players who shock the NFL community and impress fantasy owners with their incredible numbers.

Last season, we witnessed the likes of Justin Forsett, Jeremy Hill, CJ Anderson and Odell Beckham Jr put together breakout seasons and become starting caliber players as the season wore on.

Let’s be honest, how many of us actually drafted Odell at the beginning of the season? Not many, yet he was a major factor in thousands of championship runs for fantasy owners around the country.

Without further ado, here are ten players who have the potential to turn into fantasy studs this season.
