Fantasy Football Forum/My NFL Preseason Projections

Nov 20, 2007

How did you do? I got smoked. This week Terrell Owens did me in. Brett Favre was great. Larry Fitzgerald was as well. I did trade Marion Barber III for Marshawn Lynch though, so my keepers are Ronnie Brown, Lynch, and Fitz. I’ve lost my 7th straight game, but have put myself in decent position for next year. Looks like I’m the frontrunner for McFadden too. How did you do?

Tracking My NFL Preseason Predictions
I made a bunch of predictions in the preseason. I profiled guys I thought would do well. I also profiled guys I thought wouldn’t meet expectations. Here are my preseason predictions are going.

Surprises
J.P. Losman – Prediction: 3400 yards, 24 TDs, 16 INTs
On Pace for: Not worth reporting.
Right-O-Meter: 1
173 yards and a TD. Not exactly a winner.

Alex Smith – Prediction: 3000 yards, 20 TDs, 14 INTs
On Pace for: Not worth reporting.
Right-O-Meter: 1
Didn’t even play.

Chris Brown – Prediction: 1000 total yards, 5 TDs
On Pace for: 648 yards, 2 TDs
Right-O-Meter: The good news, he returned from injury with 75 total yards. THe bad news, he only had three carries.

Jerious Norwood – Prediction: 1200 total yards, 5 TDs
On Pace for: 749 yards, 2 TDs
Right-O-Meter: 1
14 total yards. Puke.

D.J. Hackett – Prediction: 80 receptions, 1100 yards, 8 TDs
On Pace for: 483 yards, 5 TDs
Right-O-Meter: 4
136 yards and a TD. See.

Vincent Jackson – Prediction: 64 receptions, 1100 yards, 9 TDs
On Pace for: 614 yards, 3 TDs
Right-O-Meter: 1
20 yards. Oh boy.

Heath Miller – Prediction: 600 yards, 8 TDs
On Pace for : 731 yards, 10 TDs
Right-O-Meter: 10
36 yards. Not so hot.

Disappointments
Vince Young – Prediction: 2800 passing yards, 650 rushing yards, 16 TDs, 6 rushing TDs, 20 INTs
On Pace for: 2267, 466, 8 TDs, 5 rushing TDs, 19 picks
Right-O-Meter: 10
VY threw for 305 yards and a TD. He also ran for 74 yards and a score. That’s a real solid game. Careful though, it could lead to a sucker play next week.

Maurice Jones-Drew- Prediction: 1100 total yards, 8 rushing & receiving TDs
On Pace for: 1293 total yards, 10 TDs
Right-O-Meter: 2
Only 37 yards, but he did score.

Torry Holt – Prediction: 1100 yards, 7 TDs
On Pace for: 1208 yards, 8 TDs
Right-O-Meter: 8
55 and a TD. Solid.

Tony Gonzalez – Prediction: 700 yards, 5 TDs
On Pace for: 1104 yards, 6 TDs
Right-O-Meter: 4
46 yards. Not the greatest.

Not doing so hot, but I’m glad Hackett is coming on.
