Jan 1, 2008

Happy New Year’s!

Fantasy Football Forum
Was this week your championship? How’d you do? My leagues all wrapped up last week so I have nothing to report.

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’s how I did.

Surprises
J.P. Losman – Prediction: 3400 yards, 24 TDs, 16 INTs
Actual: Not worth reporting.
Right-O-Meter: 1

Alex Smith – Prediction: 3000 yards, 20 TDs, 14 INTs
Actual: Not worth reporting.
Right-O-Meter: 1

Chris Brown – Prediction: 1000 total yards, 5 TDs
Actual: 590 total yards, 5 TDs
Right-O-Meter: 6
LenDale had a much better season than I anticipated. Brown did have TDs in four of the last five weeks though.

Jerious Norwood – Prediction: 1200 total yards, 5 TDs
Actual: 892 total yards, 1 TD
Right-O-Meter: 2
He was never used properly. Maybe next year.

D.J. Hackett – Prediction: 80 receptions, 1100 yards, 8 TDs
Actual: Not worth reporting
Right-O-Meter: 1

Vincent Jackson – Prediction: 64 receptions, 1100 yards, 9 TDs
Actual: 623 yards, 3 TDs
Right-O-Meter: 1
He was a chic pick my many a prognasticator. He left many fantasy owners with egg on their face.

Heath Miller – Prediction: 600 yards, 8 TDs
On Pace for : 566 yards, 7 TDs
Actual: 9
He was solid overall, but faded down the stretch.

Disappointments
Vince Young – Prediction: 2800 passing yards, 650 rushing yards, 16
TDs, 6 rushing TDs, 20 INTs
On Pace for: 2546 passing, 395 rushing, 9 passing TDs, 3 rushing, 17 INTs
Actual: 10
My projections weren’t great for VY, but I was right that he would disappoint his fantasy owners.

Maurice Jones-Drew- Prediction: 1100 total yards, 8 rushing & receiving TDs
On Pace for: 1175 total yards, 9 TDs
Actual: 9
My numbers add up because he skipped the last game, but he was pretty solid.

Torry Holt – Prediction: 1100 yards, 7 TDs
Actual: 1189 yards, 7 TDs
Right-O-Meter: 9
Holt was a little better than I projected.

Tony Gonzalez – Prediction: 700 yards, 5 TDs
Actual: 1172 yards, 5 TDs
Right-O-Meter: 6
He had a solid year, but he was drafted higher than he should have been.
