Fantasy Football Predictions
September 3, 2011 by USA Post
Fantasy Football Predictions, With the start of the 2011 fantasy football right around the corner, I thought I would make a few bold prediction based on what I’ve seen the end of summer and through the preseason.
1) Chris Johnson will live up to expectations. The situation reminds me of all the redoubt of 2007, when Larry Johnson was maintained for a big contract in Kansas City after running for 1.789 yards and 17 touchdowns last season.
He came to camp last week, was used sparingly in the first three weeks of the regular season, and he worked in playing shape and played his last game of the year in Week 8 after a toe injury. Form of training is not at all “gameplay.” Please take care of this year or at least should handcuff a backup with it (to be determined between the currently injured Javon Ringer and rookie Jamie Harper).
2) Arian Foster disappoint fantasy owners. Once you start hamstring pulls suffering, which have a tendency to return, especially when trying to play again too soon. Foster is now the hamstring pull No. 2 and we are not out of the preseason. His determination to return to the opening day could be his and his downfall. The list includes former Houston Texans 1,000-yard runner Derrick Ward and sophomore running back Ben Tate, who should see more action this season after showing his considerable talent in the preseason, while the ground 20 times for 147 yards. Tate was a second-round pick last year (No. 58 in total) who missed all of 2010 with an ankle injury.
3) Matthew Stafford outscore the two quarterbacks in Texas – Tony Romo and Matt Schaub. This is particularly brave because Stafford has yet to get through a season in one piece. We know he has the talent and we know that the Lions love to throw the ball. What happened 633 times last year mainly with backup Shaun Hill and Drew Stanton in the middle. If we add a healthy mix Stafford, this is certainly credible. Stafford has a wide receiver in the top three in the Calvin Johnson, a solid veteran Nate Burleson, a rookie talented young Tito, two good tight ends in receiving Brandon Pettigrew and Tony Scheffler and Jahvid Best catching passes out of backfield.
4) Miami quarterback Chad Henne will be greatly underestimated. Henne is currently the 27th QB off the board (fantasyfootballnerd.com ranking 191), but is in a good situation. He has two talented receivers Brandon Marshall and Davone Bess, a solid tight end Anthony Fasano and pass-catching team added running back Reggie Bush to the mix. Henne threw 490 times in just 14 starts in 2010 and was a run-first offense around Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams. Henne has a decent schedule and only faces the New York Jets once in the fantasy season as the team’s second meeting in week 17 after most of the stations of fantasy.
5) Willis McGahee will more fantasy points than Knowshon Moreno. Moreno may be a starter in Week 1, but McGahee could actually be the next best performance. We do know that McGahee will be the workhorse of the goal line because the team has already confirmed this fact and given the propensity of head coach John Fox for a shared backfield (see DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart), McGahee should receive equal playing time elsewhere.
6) Brett Favre did not throw a pass this year.
