The Matchups Game and Predictions for the Future

If you’re not sure what these Italian Flag-looking charts mean, check out last week’s posts on QBs and RBs and WRs and TEs.  This week, I’m providing you with the stats and the schedules going forward once again. However, instead of the buy/sell/add/drop format from last week, I’m going to give you some actual predictions at each position.

QB Schedules and Predictions

Predictions:

  • Nick Foles has another big game this week against Dallas (too easy).
  • Nick Foles plays well enough to keep the starting job in Philadelphia the rest of the season (now we’re talking, but give me more).
  • Nick Foles is a top-eight fantasy quarterback the rest of the wayNow that’s provocative!
  • Sam Bradford heads into the offseason surrounded by question marks, and rumors swirl about the Rams drafting a replacement.
  • Robert Griffin III has at least two games of 25+ fantasy points down the stretch, reminding us of the 2012 RGIII.
  • I’m sticking with last week’s prediction of Philip Rivers as a top-10 fantasy quarterback with top-five weekly upside.

Predictions:

  • Eddie Lacy has 270 rushing yards so far this season. He’ll finish with 1,400 or more.
  • Matt Forte has 686 yards from scrimmage. He’ll finish with over 2,000 and will not submit any fantasy games of fewer than 10 points in 0.5 point per reception leagues.
  • Le’Veon Bell will not surpass 900 rushing yards.
  • Steven Jackson has 130 yards from scrimmage in just over one game played so far. He will not get to 1,000.

Predictions:

  • Rueben Randle currently has 333 receiving yards and three touchdowns. He will surpass 1,200 and get to nine touchdowns as the Giants look toward their Hakeem Nicks-less future.
  • Antonio Brown has 41 receptions. He’ll pass 115 for the season.
  • Justin Blackmon has 326 yards in two games (an average of 163 yards per game). He won’t average more than 80 the rest of the way, leaving him shy of 1,100 for the season.
  • Terrance Williams has 309 receiving yards to date. He will surpass 1,100 for the season.

Predictions:

  • Jimmy Graham (currently at 37/593/6) “cools off” to finish around 90/1,450/13.
  • Jordan Cameron (30/360/5 in his first four games and 8/100/0 in his last two) rights the ship. Cameron will finish with 88/1,150/11.
  • Jared Cook (141 yards in Week 1, 170 since then) finishes under 900 yards for the season. He’s droppable if you haven’t already.
