With Pete and J.E. making their bold predictions, I decided to jump into the ring with some “guesses” of my own. Every year is crazy and difficult to predict. I am going to toss out something for each AFC team today. Feel free to tell me how wrong I am in the comments below.
New England Patriots – Dwayne Allen finishes as a TE1 in standard leagues.
They love to run 2 TE sets. Look for defenses to struggle covering everyone here.
Buffalo Bills – Shady McCoy has 85 catches and leads team in receptions.
Honestly, where’s the competition? ROOKIE Zay Jones? Please.
Miami Dolphins – Kenyan Drake ends the year with more fantasy points than Jay Ajayi.
Ajayi was all-or-nothing last year. This year will be a lot of nothing.
New York Jets – Will score fewer than 100 points this season.
Poor J-E-T-S. I bet they will win one game though!
Baltimore Ravens – Jeremy Maclin finishes the year outside the top 40 WRs.
Flacco just can’t miss any time. Mallett is bad.
Cincinnati Bengals – Joe Mixon finishes third among Bengals backs in fantasy production.
Jeremy Hill isn’t dead and Gio seems healthy.
Cleveland Browns – Corey Coleman finishes the season as a top 18 WR in standard leagues.
He has flashed some real skills in the past. Just stay on the field!
Pittsburgh Steelers – Team DEF finishes top 5.
Outside of a couple tough games the schedule lines up well for them.
Houston Texans – D’Onta Foreman finishes the year as an RB1 in all leagues.
Lamar Miller just is not the answer for the Texans.
Indianapolis Colts – Frank Gore finishes the year as a RB1 in standard leagues.
This won’t be the year that Gore ages before our eyes.
Jacksonville Jaguars – Blake Bortles finishes the season as a QB2 and remains the JAX starter for 2018.
Maybe the boldest given that Henne is starting the third preseason game?
Tennessee Titans – Derrick Henry ends the year with a better fantasy season than DeMarco Murray.
There is a lot of wear on those Murray tires.
Denver Broncos – Anderson/Charles/Henderson combine to lead league in total rushing.
It won’t be their QBs leading them to the playoffs.
Kansas City Chiefs – Patrick Mahomes ends the year as a QB2.
Is Andy Reid coaching Brett Favre again?!
Oakland Raiders – Marshawn Lynch has less than 500 yards rushing on the year.
I am not sold that he can come back and be the same guy he was. He looks slow.
Los Angeles Chargers – Philip Rivers misses games for the first time in his career.
Rivers has started every game for the Chargers since he took over for Drew Brees.
