“I never saw it coming.” In this bold predictions series, we’ll look at weekly matchups, using history as a contextual backdrop – as well as in-season trends – in order to unearth the unexpected events that have a chance at coming true. Last week, we were one more Eli Manning interception away from making it two weeks in a row with a correct bold call. Manning managed two interceptions against the Eagles, but just couldn’t find that third one, as I had predicted. What else we missed:
- Devin Funchess didn’t top 16.4 PPR points, despite Kelvin Benjamin leaving the game with an injury. Funchess scored 9.8 and the breakout will have to wait.
- The process of predicting Derrick Henry as a top-10 RB last week was good, as the Seahawks gave up 169 yards on the ground. I expected Seattle’s run defense to struggle, I just didn’t expect DeMarco Murray to be so involved. For what it’s worth, Henry and Murray’s combined stats would have been good for the overall RB5 in Week 3.
