“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. We had the right idea last week in predicting Michael Thomas as the overall WR1. He snagged two touchdowns, as predicted, but couldn’t quite rack up the yardage needed to finish higher than the WR3. Other predictions were less fruitful:
- Marqise Lee never had a chance to outscore DeAndre Hopkins after leaving with an ankle injury. Hopkins was held to his lowest catch total since Week 6, however.
- Don’t fade Aaron Rodgers, kids. He’ll make you look silly, just as he did with me after finishing as the QB6 in his return after I predicted a QB17 finish or worse.
