Bold predictions for the fantasy rookies
We’ve been making bold predictions all week, and in a bid to top all my coworkers — who have been making some pretty dang bold predictions — I’m going to be making bold predictions exclusively about the hardest group to predict: rookies.
We’ll get the boring, bonus sixth bold prediction out of the way first, which is that no rookie quarterbacks or tight ends will be worth starting in fantasy this year.
As such, these five bold predictions will focus on rookie running backs and wideouts. We’ll also stay away from Ezekiel Elliott predictions, since a couple of other already made the bold prediction that he’ll finish as the No. 1 overall running back.
And at the end, I’ll be giving my single boldest prediction, so stick around.
1. The Giants give Paul Perkins 12-plus touches per game by Week 8.
When was the last time anyone said, “Wow, that Rashad Jennings guy is a really good running back”?
