Fantasy Football Forum/My NFL Preseason Projections

Oct 2, 2007

Fantasy Football Forum
Did you win your matchup this week? What’s your record? Tom Brady’s solid Monday night helped me remain undefeated. Luck was on my side as I had the 3rd lowest score in my 8 man keeper league. Nonetheless, I’m the only one at 4-0. Aside from Brady, I got a solid performance from Laveranues Coles and recently acquired Travis Henry. I dealt Rudi Johnson and Mark Clayton for Henry and Santana Moss. My opponent had a huge game from Addai, but an injury kept him from finishing. Also, MeO did nothing despite Dallas scoring 2 TDs. I got cute and started Benson over Larry Johnson. LJ had a solid 14.8 points for my bench. I also had Dallas Clark and his 2 TDs on the bench in favor of Heath Miller.

That’s how my weekend of fantasy football went. How did you do?

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 mypreseason predictions are going.

Right-O-Meter: 10
Had a bye. My predictions are on target, but a further review of my projections, and those numbers wouldn’t be that bad.

Maurice Jones-Drew- Prediction: 1100 total yards, 8 rushing & receiving TDs
On Pace for: 832 total yards, 0 TDs
Right-O-Meter: 10
Had a bye.

Torry Holt – Prediction: 1100 yards, 7 TDs

He finally picked up a TD. He’s coming around. I think I’m way off on this.

I’m sucking at my predicitions, although my bust picks are pretty good still.
