Here are my first set of bold predictions for fantasy football 2018
1.) Jared Goff scores more fantasy points that Tom Brady.
Jared Goff was a top tier QB in fantasy last year, having 3,804 passing yards for 28 touchdowns and a QBR of 100.5. Goff, who is ranked 18th among the ESPN Quarterback rankings, is in line for a great fantasy season this year with new addition Brandin Cooks and returning veterans Robert Woods and Todd Gurley to pass to. On the other side, Tom Brady has been a powerhouse QB for what has seemed like forever and some people say that he’s not even close to stopping. Personally, I do believe that he has been a star, but I think that it is going to come to an end soon. Brady recently turned 41 years old and is entering his 19th season with the Patriots, who mind you, lost target Brandon Cooks and OL Nate Solder. Brady and the Patriots have had an amazing run together, but there are factors pointing towards a worse season for Tom. Now, obviously, this is Tom Brady, but when your 41 playing football, injury stakes are high.
Jared Goff and Tom Brady are both top 15 QBs in my mind, but Goff is a much more mobile Quarterback than Tom, and there is a 18 year difference between the two. There is a possibility of the two being very close in fantasy points, and there is also a chance that Goff scores more than Brady.
2.) Julio Jones is the best WR in fantasy.
Julio Jones had a tough season for touchdowns last year, only catching 3 TDs. Jones was projected a lot more points than he scored, but he did put up the yards, catching 88 balls for 1,444 yards with Atlanta. This season, Jones is not ranked in the top 3 receivers, but it Matt Ryan can have good year for the Falcons, than Jones can produce and put up the yards and more touchdowns. As for the other top 3 receiver, OBJ, Hopkins, and AB, there QBs are all not guaranteed great seasons.
There is a slim chance of Julio becoming the top fantasy receiver, but if everything goes well for him, then you may see Julio passing every receiver in the rankings.
