Who gets your vote as the fantasy Comeback Player (or players) of the Year?
It is a tie for comeback player of the year. Todd Gurley at RB or Keenen Allen at WR. Gurley almost doubled his yards from scrimmage and tripled his TDs (19 up from 6 in 2016'). A lot of that is due to the revamped OL and better play from 2nd year QB Geoff, but a comeback is a comeback. On the other hand Keenen Allen's comeback is due primarily to his staying healthy for a change. The talent with Allen has never been in doubt. He just has not been on the field long enough to show case it. Honorable mention goes to DeAndre Hopkins if we are picking a WR who played a full season last year and stunk it up and then came back this year. Again like Gurley much of 2016 can be blamed on QB play.
