Fantasy Football Projections: New York Jets

This entry is part 24 of 38 in the series 2018 Fantasy Football Projections

The ageless wonder of Josh McCown is back at the helm to start the season for the Jets after resurrecting his career from the grave in 2017. Thirty-eight years old and a resume that would make Rex Grossman look good were the tools that McCown brought to the table last year and then proceeded to …

Fantasy Football Projections: New York Giants

This entry is part 23 of 38 in the series 2018 Fantasy Football Projections

How do you solve a puzzle like Eli Manning? Following up on three straight studly fantasy campaigns from 2014-2016, Eli went out and dropped a hot steamy dud on us in 2017 throwing for only 19 TD and 13 INT. The good news here is that Manning rarely has back to back stinkers in terms …

Fantasy Football Projection: New Orleans Saints

This entry is part 22 of 38 in the series 2018 Fantasy Football Projections

If Tom Brady was a no-brainer as a top-tier fantasy QB, Drew Brees requires even less thought. Brees is a prolific fantasy machine. Brees completed 72% of his passes in 2017 for 4334 yards, 23 TD, 8 INT and 2 rushing TD and that was a “down year” for the gunslinger. It was the first …

I’m going to climb really high on top of “Hot Take Mountain” and give you some way out there fantasy advice. Are you ready? Here it comes draft Tom Brady. Yeah, this is not a tough call to make. Brady is still a guy who makes you a fantasy playoff team, so draft him accordingly. …

Los Angeles Rams Helmet

Fantasy Football Projection: Los Angeles Rams

This entry is part 20 of 38 in the series 2018 Fantasy Football Projections

2016 gave us an up-close look at the #1 overall pick of the draft and it wasn’t pretty. HBO’s Hard Knocks showed what appeared to be an overwhelmed young quarterback and Goff’s play on the field didn’t dispel that image as he struggled mightily to a 54.6 completion percentage. Something clicked for the rising star …

This entry is part 19 of 38 in the series 2018 Fantasy Football Projections

Philip Rivers is the very model of fantasy consistency. The veteran signal caller has been cranking out 4300+ yard, 30 TD seasons on a yearly basis for the past half decade and it doesn’t look like that will change in 2018. Rivers has averaged 4366 yards, 30 TD, and 16 INT over his past ten …

This entry is part 18 of 38 in the series 2018 Fantasy Football Projections

2017 was the latest addition to the Vikings long list of seasons that came close to a Super Bowl win but failed to go the full distance. Perhaps last season was uniquely painful in that it would have been a home field Super Bowl in the Vikings brand new stadium. Whatever the case, Minnesota decided …

Miami Dolphins Helmet

Fantasy Football Projections: Miami Dolphins

This entry is part 17 of 38 in the series 2018 Fantasy Football Projections

Returning Dolphins QB, Ryan Tannehill, maybe the latest casualty to sustain the dreaded NFL label of “game manager”. The truth is, the former Texas A&M thrower has failed to do anything in his short NFL career to disprove the title. Over five seasons as the Miami starter, Tannehill has averaged just 3800 yards and 22 …

This entry is part 16 of 38 in the series 2018 Fantasy Football Projections

When it comes to young passers in the NFL who come with a lot of hype, Patrick Mahomes has to be a fixture on that list. Mahomes was a draft process darling in 2017 that lead to the Chiefs mortgaging the future to trade up and take him. After a playoff run last season that …
