Fantasy Football Forum/My NFL Preseason Projections

Dec 11, 2007

Fantasy Football Forum
How did you do? My team got put out of its misery. I was asked about my team’s execution. I said “I was all for it”. Putting the NFL’s best quotes (John McKay) aside, my team sucked. Andre Johnson showed up. He didn’t have much company. Brett Favre was the only other person to record a TD for me. Randy Moss went off against me yet again. So did your playoffs start or do they start next week? How are your odds looking?

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
Buffalo had 4 TD passes sthis week. Too bad Losman didn’t throw any.

Alex Smith – Prediction: 3000 yards, 20 TDs, 14 INTs
On Pace for: Not worth reporting.
Right-O-Meter: 1
Alex Smith had 3.9 fantasy points this week. Oh wait, wrong Alex Smith. Yeah, my guy didn’t play.

Chris Brown – Prediction: 1000 total yards, 5 TDs
On Pace for: 647 total yards, 4 TDs
Right-O-Meter: 5
He only had 27 total yards, but at least he scored.

Jerious Norwood – Prediction: 1200 total yards, 5 TDs
On Pace for: 865 yards, 1 TDs

78 total yards this week. Not bad.

D.J. Hackett – Prediction: 80 receptions, 1100 yards, 8 TDs

Started off good, but only finished with 28 yards.

Disappointments
Vince Young – Prediction: 2800 passing yards, 650 rushing yards, 16 TDs, 6 rushing TDs, 20 INTs

Maurice Jones-Drew- Prediction: 1100 total yards, 8 rushing & receiving TDs
On Pace for: 1152 total yards, 11 TDs

45 total yards. When he doesn’t score a TD, he’s been dreadful.

Solid 90 yards. Didn’t find the endzone.

76 yards and a TD. That’s what you were hoping for when you drafted him.
