Fantasy Predictions: Did They Make You Money?
Last week I made predictions on who was a sure fantasy stud. Hit on a few, missed on a few more. Below is how they faired.
WRs who were sure to light up the box score:
Antonio Brown - 5 Rec 84 Yards
Victor Cruz - 3 Rec 22 Yards. Eli threw to 7 different receivers while Preston Parker led the team in receiving. Oops.
Steve Smith - 5 Rec 34 Yards. Hmm
Kelvin Benjamin - 3 Rec 38 Yards. Umm
Julio Jones - 11 Rec 105 Yards. Endzone Julio?
TY Hilton - 9 Rec 90 Yards. TY is warming up.
Value WRs who were going to tear it up:
Golden Tate - 7 Rec 134 Yards 1 TD. Nailed one.
Andrew Hawkins - 3 Rec 26 Yards. Hoyer throws for 290 yards and 3 TD and Andrew Hawkins saw none of it.
Brandin Cooks - 9 Rec 56 Yards. If you're in a PPR league you aren't too mad at me.
What running backs were going to run wild?
DeMarco Murray - 192 total yards. Easy.
Le'Veon Bell - 118 total yards. He doesn't like finding the end zone this year.
Rashad Jennings - 10 Car 55 yards. Injured in the 3rd quarter. Rookie Andre Williams ended up with 65 yards and a TD. Could have been a big day for Jennings.
Matt Forte - 166 total yards 1 TD. Welcome back Matt.
Doug Martin - 74 total yards. Should be improving every week.
Value back in a week to week fantasy league
Chris Ivory - 9 Car 44 yards. He was the only Jet who participated last week.
What defense will give you more than 10 points this week?
The Detroit Lions. Yes Sir! Pick 6, 3 sacks, 3 FF.
