Fantasy Football Forum/My NFL Preseason Projections

Dec 18, 2007

Fantasy Football Forum
How are your playoffs going? In my main league, I won in the losers’ bracket. Brett Favre was solid. Andre Johnson was money. Tampa Defense was lights out. I finished 1st in three of my other five leagues so the playoffs kicked off for me. I got dumped in two of them. My best season is an NFL.com league with guys from SportingNews.com. I finished 13-1 and moved on to the title game. So, that’s my story. What’s yours?

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
Did not play.

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

Chris Brown – Prediction: 1000 total yards, 5 TDs
On Pace for: 634 total yards, 3 TDs
Right-O-Meter: 3
His 29 total yards didn’t help my projection.

Jerious Norwood – Prediction: 1200 total yards, 5 TDs
On Pace for: 885 yards, 1 TDs
Right-O-Meter: 4
Solid 71 yards of total offense.

D.J. Hackett – Prediction: 80 receptions, 1100 yards, 8 TDs
On Pace for: Not worth reporting
Right-O-Meter: 1
Did not play.

Vincent Jackson – Prediction: 64 receptions, 1100 yards, 9 TDs
On Pace for: 645 yards, 3 TDs
Right-O-Meter: 2
Thirty yards. His team scored 51 points and that’s all you got. Awful.

Heath Miller – Prediction: 600 yards, 8 TDs
On Pace for : 616 yards, 8 TDs
Right-O-Meter: 10++++
Are you kidding me? My picks have sucked this year, but Miller has been just about spot on. 24 yards and a score weren’t bad.

Disappointments
Vince Young – Prediction: 2800 passing yards, 650 rushing yards, 16 TDs, 6 rushing TDs, 20 INTs
On Pace for: 2541 passing, 429 rushing, 10 passing TDs, 3 rushing, 18 INTs
Right-O-Meter: 10
VY had a solid game this week. 191 through the air. 32 on the ground. 2 TDs without an INT.

Maurice Jones-Drew- Prediction: 1100 total yards, 8 rushing & receiving TDs
On Pace for: 1183 total yards, 9 TDs
Right-O-Meter: 9
99 total yards. He didn’t score this week though so it helped my projection.

Torry Holt – Prediction: 1100 yards, 7 TDs
On Pace for: 1206 yards, 8 TDs
Right-O-Meter: 7
Only 21 yards, but he did get in the endzone.

Tony Gonzalez – Prediction: 700 yards, 5 TDs
On Pace for: 1110 yards, 6 TDs
Right-O-Meter: 3
Only 17 yards.

This week helped a little.
