“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 unexpected events that have a chance at coming true. The slump is over thanks to a record rookie performance and the Jets pass defense. We hit two of four Bold Predictions in Week 6, with a career-worst rushing outing from Kareem Hunt being the only thing keeping us from a perfect week:
- Hunt needed 96 rushing yards, two TDs and 3.4 fantasy points to become the leader in those categories through the first six games to start a career. While Hunt had 89 yards receiving, he was held to just 21 yards on the ground.
- As predicted, the New York Jets made Tom Brady look human, holding him to just 257 yards passing.
- Christian McCaffrey needed 49 receiving yards to give him the best such mark through the first six games of an RB’s career since 2016. It took him 10 receptions to get there, but the rookie put up 56 yards through the air to pass Reggie Bush and Jahvid Best for the record.
- The fourth prediction was that we’d go three for three on those predictions, but we missed on Hunt.
