Austin Ekeler outscores Melvin Gordon.

Other than the 1st one, I’m not finding these to be particularly BOLD picks. 

Adams is being drafted in the top 7 WRs - seems like and of those 7 could be WR1, especially the dude who has A-A-Ron throwing him the rock. 

Henry & Goodwyn ADP between late 3rd-late 4th so I’d expect them to be valuable pieces of every team they’re on. 

Browns look pretty solid, and while the playoff bit is truly BOLD, I think most expect “middle of the pack” (5-8 wins?)

last one is as likely as any other playoff scenario.   :shrug:

imma say your list is to BOLD picks what milk chocolate is to dark chocolate. ;)  

Ingram outscores Kamara

Luck puts up top 5 FF numbers & goes to Pro Bowl

Breida outproduces McKinnon

NE Does not make the playoffs

Browns win 8

- Kenyan Drake is a top 10 PPR RB

- Marquise Goodwin is a top 20 WR

- JuJu outscores AB

- Hayden Hurst is a top 10 TE

- Joe Mixon outscores any other RB from the 2017 draft and makes the Pro Bowl
Going to be a little tougher now.

(RotoWire) Hurst has a stress fracture in his foot and likely will be out for 3-to-4 weeks, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Hurst will have a procedure Friday to insert a screw in his injured foot, with the Ravens holding out hope he can return at some point in September. The rookie first-round pick was making a strong case to take Nick Boyle's spot atop the depth chart, getting regular run with the starting offense throughout the preseason. Boyle is now locked in as the Week 1 starter, and rookie third-round pick Mark Andrews could make a late push for a role on passing downs. With Baltimore scheduled for the Thursday game in Week 2, ESPN's Jamison Hensley believes Hurst is unlikely to be available any sooner than Sept. 23 against the Broncos (Week 3).
1) Jordan Howard finishes as a top 5 RB in standard scoring

2) Mike Evans finshes under 1000 yards receiving

3) Garoppolo leads the league in passing yards

4) Gronk has the best statistical season ever by a TE

5) L Murray scores more TDS than Dalvin Cook

David Johnson is #1 RB; shark pool laments that he is 43 years-old

Odell Beckham catches 100 passes for 1600 yards and 14 TDs; NYGs draft a WR in the 2019 first round

Michael Thomas is the runaway #1 WR this season

Carson Wentz outscores the #2 fantasy QB by 150 points; Philly fans remain more interested in Rico Gathers

Nick Vannett is a top 3 TE

Bonus prediction: I win the championship in my dynasty league.
Man, I wonder what kind of stats Michael Thomas puts up.

Ty Montgomery scores more rushing TDs than the other GB RBs combined

Julius Thomas finishes as a top 5 TE

Amendola is leading fantasy scorer for Miami and top 15 in league

Spencer Ware scores more fantasy points than Hunt

Bridgewater is traded and leads his new team to a win against MIN in an important game
Given the first 2 predictions, you're bound to hit on one of the next 3.

1. Vikings win their first Superbowl in team history.

2. Saquon Barkeley leads all RBs in total yards from scrimmage.

3. Anthony Miller leads the Bears in # of receptions

4. Raiders under Gruden make the playoffs as a Wild Card team

5. Henry and Lewis both exceed 1000 yards from scrimmage but Henry gets 10 plus TDs

Tre'Quan Smith and Jonathan Williams lead the NO offense to the Superbowl

Burton is a top 3 TE and the bears are a playoff team

Jordan Howard explodes and becomes an elite RB - and so does Joe Mixon

LeSean McCoy finishes outside of the top 25

Yogi's updated BOLD picks:

1. Devonta Freeman will be MVP

2. Cameron Heyward will be Defensive Player of the Year

3. Sam Darnold will be Offensive Rookie of the Year

4. Marcus Davenport will be Defensive Rookie of the Year

5. The Atlanta Falcons will become the 1st team to not only play a Super Bowl in their home stadium, but also win a Super Bowl in their home stadium when they beat the Patriots 27-24.

Jimmy G wins no more games with 16 starts than he did with 5 starts last year.  49ers finish with 5 wins total and the whole offense under-performs their ADP (lol at Marquise Goodwin being a true WR1 in the NFL). 

McCoy will  have a down year but come out of nowhere to be the highest scoring fantasy playoffs RB.(Jets, Lions, Patriots run defenses!).

Trey Burton will finish TE3 with 1,000/10

Both PIT and NO finish the season with winning "away" records (both are usually notoriously bad on the road) and are the #1 seeds in the playoffs.

Aaron Jones misses the first four games but still finishes as the highest scoring RB on the packers by 50 points (in PPR).

Bonus:  Luck finishes QB5+, wins 10+ games, and wins Comeback Player of the Year.
I think this one wins the thread.

This thread is a great example of just how hard it is to predict things in the NFL.

Of course making bold predictions are going to have more misses, but this thread is like a 5% hit rate.

Mike Wallace leads the Eagles in receiving yards

Chicago Bears win the NFC North

Corey Clement outscores Jay Ajayi in fantasy ppr leagues

Chris Hogan is a top 15 WR

Sam Darnold flirts with QB1 (top 12) numbers all season
2 out of 5, ain’t bad (well sure it is).

  1. The Browns win a playoff game.
  2. New England loses the AFC East.
  3. Jarvis Landry is a top 10 WR in non-ppr.
  4. The Rams are last in the NFC West. 
  5. Saquon Barkley is the 3rd best rookie running back.
I'd be shocked if any of these happen, but go Bold or go home. 
  1. 1 year early
  2. 1 year early
  3. He might be gone if they hire Gase.
  4. Not even close.
  5. Not even close. 
Titans most valuable FF back - Akrum Wadley. 

AFC East most valuable QB - Josh Allen (okay, 2nd)

Browns make it to the playoffs

Sam Bradford plays 13 games, 

Jimmy Garapolo is the 4th best QB. In the NFC West.
.400 (2/5) ain't horrible. 

And the Browns did look much improved. 

David Njoku will lead all TEs in TDs.

Dion Lewis outscores Derrick Henry in fantasy points.

JuJu Smith-Schuster is a WR1 in fantasy.

Tyler Eifert stays relatively healthy and plays 14 games, gets back to fantasy relevance.

Christian Kirk is a top 25 receiver.
Nope to Njoku.

I think I was doing okay on the Lewis Henry one until he burst out later on.

Did well on the JuJu one.

Hellz naw on the Tyler Eifert one.

And nope on Kirk.
