This week we bring you a special all-Thanksgiving Day edition of Bold Predictions with an extra helping of gravy in the form of a few guest predictions. First, a quick recap, and after a string of near misses in previous weeks, last week was just one air ball after another. At least I didn’t have to sweat any close ones.
- Eli Manning sure didn’t outscore Tom Brady, but he did manage to beat the Chiefs while throwing for 205 yards and no touchdowns, which is quite the feat in itself.
- I predicted a combination of six QB1s, RB1s, and WR1s to emerge from the Rams-Vikings matchup, but defense won the day, and the only hits were Latavius Murray and Adam Thielen finishing as the RB5 and WR5 respectively.
- Tyler Kroft did score a TD against the Broncos but only saw three targets on the day and didn’t return top-six value.1
- He was TE13. (back)
