It's officially “My Guys” season at PFF. To create this year's list of “my guys” for 2021 fantasy football, I decided to compare my 2021 fantasy football rankings to those of my colleagues, starting with the players I have ranked higher than anyone else at PFF in both overall PPR ranking as well as positional ranking. From there, I narrowed the list down to five players I've found myself drafting most often.

This piece is dedicated to the NFL players I am most high on heading into 2021 fantasy football — the players I'm most confident will have a stellar season and beat expectations.
My Rank: QB15 | Underdog ADP: QB18
The 2020 fifth-overall pick had a forgettable first season, but several of Tua's problems were out of his control. Two of Miami's top four wide receivers heading into the season opted out, and another, Preston Williams, only lasted a game and a half after Tagovailoa was named the starter before landing on injured reserve.
DeVante Parker played only 60% of the Dolphins' offensive snaps with the rookie quarterback due to injury. Miami trotted out eight other wide receivers throughout Tua’s time as a starter — none played over 50% of the snaps or earned a PFF grade above 70.
The Dolphins changed their weakness to a strength this offseason, bringing in Will Fuller from the Texans and drafting Jaylen Waddle. Fuller finished seventh with 0.33 fantasy points per snap last season. His four deep touchdowns were more than the rest of Miami’s receivers combined, while his 314 deep yards nearly doubled the Dolphins' best deep threat. Miami spent the sixth-overall pick in 2021 on the dynamic Jaylen Waddle — Tagovailoa’s college teammate led his class in yards per route run over his college career.
Tua was the No. 2 prospect in the 2020 NFL draft according to PFF's big board. He should benefit significantly from a full training camp and more consistency at wide receiver.
