The problem with bold predictions is people only use one part of the phrase. They say bold shit, without actually wanting to say it's a prediction. People just say shit to say it. Most of them are lazy.
Three of the top 5 fantasy RBs come from this division. I wanna include Guice here but I think any hot take on Guice finishing really high is just kind of lazy. And not based on anything that's happened here on earth. Maybe over there in Guiceland. (Insert Viceland -> Guiceland picture)
Obviously I'm talking about Adrian Peterson, Tony Pollard and Boston Scott.
Robert Woods scores the single-most fantasy points of any player in the division (non-QB)
Other candidates: kenyan drake, d-hop, kupp, mostert, kittle, would've been deebo, carson, lockett, metcalf.
With the running backs, you have Drake, who is yet to show us a full season, Carson, who is incredible but guy gets banged up more than mr. glass, im not betting on any SF RB to be the guy. I think Metcalf/Lockett cannibalize each other and both end up with around 1000-1100 yards. Woods had 1250 last year, which was almost 100 more than DeAndre Hopkins who was averaging 10 targets/game last year - moving to a new offense one with other weapons, i dont think he balls this year statistically.
I think easiest path to this not happening is obviously just carson or drake staying healthy for 15 games, or kittle could do it if deebo starts on the PUP he should get off to a roaring start.
I just absolutely love what we say from Woods over the 2H of the year in 2020 when they starting using 12 personnel more right after the Rams bye week, Kupp had to move outside and Woods became a legitimate top 5 fantasy WR
The guy wasn't scoring any touchdowns and still averaged 15.5 half ppr and almost 20 ppr points.
It's bold but I love Woods this year and the guys he's competing with, I think there are a ton of outs for them to not do well this year.
D'Andre Swift scores the most fantasy points of all rookie running backs. Over the second half of the season, he will a top-5 fantasy running back.
I love that Swift is being written off as sort of the rookie back not to own of the mount Rushmore bykes. He was my rookie RB1 pre-draft. The landing spot is far from ideal, but not as bad as people are making it out to be.
2. Davante Adams beats Michael Thomas' fantasy numbers from 2019.
Jared Cook will
