Gurley of 2016 or the potential of Gurley when he was drafted? Serious question, this could go either way...

Meaning what each of their value will be a year from now. 

In general, I'm saying that foreman's value will rise and his hype will rise going into next season while Gurley's will continue to erode. After three years of "didn't live up to the great hype we expected" I think a lot of people will start to sour on Gurley by this time next year. 

 

This statement / prediction is really more about Gurley than Foreman.

I know we have a thread similar to it, but I thought this might be fun. I want only 1 prediction about fantasy football only, not teams and if you had to bet your house on it this would be what you picked.

I would take Jamison Crowder over 95 catches.

Wrong

So far other than the Crowder position. I'll take the opposite on McCaffrey, Gordon and 49ers.

Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. Half wrong.

Antonio Bryant fails to reach the top 20.  A few years ago, I did an in-depth study of how many players in the top-15 repeat the following year.  Among the many things I found was that when most players have been #1 at their position (Outside of QB) for three years straight, for some reason, they fall off a cliff points-wise.  Very few players have repeated in the top-15 past that point.  AB has been #1 at the WR position for four years straight.

Right.

As someone who is sometimes right (I was dead to right on RGIII being a bum) and often loud wrong (like that time I referenced Kobe beating Lebron in the finals :bag: ), it’ll be interesting to see if Bazinga mans up and says he was wrong or avoids the thread entirely or comes up with a lame excuse. 

Anybody want to bet their house on which?

Can't be entirely sure, but I think Bazinga is the type to avoid/disappear than to apologize to me.

Jeffery didn’t hit 800 yards. Sucked to me.

That is fair, but he was healthy, clean and in shape, scored 9 TDs, was WR18 for standard, had 219 yards and 3 TDs in the post season. I am sorry, but I have to say you were wrong. Feel free to appeal though.

Did you happen to sleep through the Trent Richardson years?  There was more mass "wrong" being thrown out on that one guy than I could ever produce if I tried full time. 

Yeah, I was dead wrong on that one.  Dead right on others.  Think it's what they call law of averages or something.

Just busting in the context of the thread. We all have many hits and bad misses - nature of the beast.

Serious question, who was more wrong: the TRich backers, or the Christine Michel truthers?

Answer is neither -- it was the Amari Cooper is the New GOAT Squad

2018 with Gruden, Cooper is a can't miss. He's got the best HC in the league, his last 7 years with Tampa he went 57-55. That's a positive record folks. He also was in charge of some high powered offenses, he ranked top 20 in offense 5 of those 7 years! He only failed to be top 17 all 7 years because of how good his defense was! And the new OC is a future hall of fame TE, Greg Olson. Oh, wait, different guy? Olsen vs Olson. Ok. So who is this guy? He's the guy who was fired from St. Louis, Tampa, Oakland, and Jacksonville. His passing offenses have been top 15 once in the last 8 years, and it was purely because of the Garbage Man, Blake Bortles, putting up huge numbers in the 4th with the team down by 4 scores.

In summary, Cooper can't fail. He's got an old school head coach who traditionally loves good D and a solid run game, and an offensive coordinator who has worked for 1/6 of the league and keeps getting fired because he's bad at his job.

Who wouldn't bet their house on that this year?

It was never any different. FF is a guessing game and you can't predict for the million factors that go into every single prediction

It gets a lot easier if you make things conditional. Aaron Rodgers will be a top 10 fantasy QB if he, Adams, and Cobb don't miss any games. Mitch Trubisky will have his best year in the NFL if he starts all 16 games this season. Drew Brees will end the season older than Jameis Winston. Saquon Barkley will be a top 3 RB if he goes to Cleveland, and Zeke, David Johnson, Leveon, Gurley, Gordon, Fournette, and Kamara all miss at least 10 games each.

I disagree.  If it was a guessing game, the FBG crowd would be right about half of the time.  They are consistently wrong about 80%+ in these types of threads.
