I made one fantasy football bold prediction for every team before the season. Let's see how it turned out
Dallas – Dak Prescott will finish as a top 5 QB in PPG
Dak finished #2 in PPG. Nailed it!
Philadelphia – Zach Ertz will finish outside of the top 5 TEs
Zach Ertz ended up finishing 5th, so just missed this one.
Washington – Jordan Reed will finish as a top 6 TE in PPG
NY Giants – Saquon Barkley will finish out the Top 5 RBs
Injury and a slow start helped me on this one, although he made a strong push to end the season.
Atlanta – Calvin Ridley will outscore Julio Jones in non-PPR
Whatever chance this had went away when Calvin went on IR.
Carolina – Cam Newton will lead the league in Passing TDs
New Orleans – Drew Brees will finish out the top 15 QBs in PPG
Brees finished tied for 7th, thanks to two huges games to end the season.
Tampa Bay – Ronald Jones will rush for 1,000 yards
Ronald ended up with 724 Rush Yards, but did have 1k total. I will accept the L.
Green Bay – Marquez Valdez-Scantling will finish as a top 20 WR
After week 1, this looked promising, but it wasn’t even close, as he finished WR100.
Detroit – Kerryon Johnson will have 2,000 total yards
This was optimistic, but was far off, even without the injury.
Minnesota – Dalvin Cook will finish as the RB1 in PPG
Had a realistic shot as he finished tied for 2nd. CMC was unreal.
Chicago – Tarik Cohen will outscore David Montgomery in PPG
Only TDs saved Montgomery as he had 7 to Cohen’s 3.
San Francisco – Tevin Coleman will finish as a top 10 RB
This may have had a chance if not for injury………… and Coleman sucking.
Seattle – Tyler Lockett will finish as a top 8 WR
Lockett finished as WR 24, but there were flashes.
Arizona – Larry Fitzgerald will finish as a top 20 WR in PPR
LA Rams – Darrell Henderson will outscore Todd Gurley in PPR
New England – Sony Michel will outscore James White in PPR
Even with White missing a game, Sony couldn’t pull this off. Sad.
Buffalo – John Brown will finish as a top 24 WR
John Brown finished as WR 22, which was a steal given his ADP.
NY Jets – Jamison Crowder will outscore Robby Anderson in PPR PPG
In hindsight, this wasn’t that bold, but I will take it.
Miami – Albert Wilson will finish as a top 24 WR in PPR
Not sure why I didn’t say Devante Parker here. Oh Well.
Jacksonville – Leonard Fournette will finish as a top 5 RB.
Fournette ended up finishing 9th, thanks to only having 3 TDs.
Indianapolis – Jacoby Brissett will finish as a top 15 QB in PPG
Brissett finished 28th. Yikes.
Tennessee – Derrick Henry will have 50+ catches
Only 18 catches, but Henry ended up winning the rushing title.
Houston – Carlos Hyde will outscore Duke Johnson in non-PPR
Carlos Hyde ended up outscoring him in all formats. Duke sucks.
Cincinnati – Andy Dalton will finish as a top 12 QB in PPG
Dalton finished 21st in PPG. Benching and no AJ Green, didn’t help.
Pittsburgh – Donte Moncrief will score 15+ TDs
Cleveland – Jarvis Landry will outscore Odell Beckham in PPR
Landry was flat out better than Odell, outscoring him in all formats.
Baltimore – Lamar Jackson will finish as the QB1
BOOM BABY! Carried me to several fantasy titles as well.
Denver – Desean Hamilton will lead the team in Receiving yards
At least he finished second…………… by 900 yards. Whoops!
Kansas City – Sammy Watkins will outscore Tyreek Hill
After week 1, this was a LOCK. After week 1, the lock rusted and fell in the
Oakland – Derek Carr will finish as a top 10 QB in PPG
To be fair, this was made with the idea of him having Antonio Brown.
LA Chargers – Hunter Henry will lead all TEs in receiving TDs
Finished with only 5, thanks to injury and Rivers’ regressing majorly.
Overall, I got 7 right outta 32, which isn’t too bad. Enjoy the off season!
