Predict Top-5 QBs, RBs, WRs, and TEs By End Of Season
who knows, this thread could either reveal your fantasy football genius or make you look like an idiot if it's revisted by the end of the year
who do you think would end up the top-5 players at each major fantasy position in a standard scoring league by the end of the year?
1. aaron rodgers
2. tony romo
3. tom brady
4. peyton manning
5. joe flacco
dud - drew brees, madden curse will inevitably lead to some kind of injury
1. adrian peterson
2. chris johnson
3. ray rice
4. jahvid best
5. jamaal charles
dud - maurice jones-drew, already concern over his knees and season hasn't even started yet
1. randy moss
2. andre johnson
3. calvin johnson
4. reggie wayne
5. roddy white
dud - larry fitzgerald, derek anderson is no kurt warner and no anquan boldin = double teams all year
1. jermichael finley
2. dallas clark
3. jason witten
4. brent celek
5. antonio gates
dud - vernon davis, had a great year last season but every other year he's been beyond disappointing
5.Anderson(he is my pick to surprise. He actualy has some recievers and a great coach)
5.fitzgerald(If Anderson plays the way I think he will be just fine)
QB's - Rodgers, Manning, Brady, Romo, Flacco
WR's - Jennings, Welker, Wayne, Andre Johnson, Calvin Johnson
RB's - Chris Johnson, Peterson, Gore, Rice, Jackson
TE's - Clark, Gates, Gonzalez, Witten, Cooley
*Honorable Mention (not top 5 but up there...)
QB's - Favre, Schaub, Eli Manning, Henne, Rivers
WR's - Marshall, Moss, Fitzgerald, Ochocinco, Crabtree
RB's - Mathews, Spiller, Charles, Harrison, Jacobs
TE's - Celek, Daniels, Zach Miller, Heath Miller, Finley
Dud-Kolb, he's going to struggle with the rest of the Philly offense.
Dud-Jahvid Best, just a feeling he's going to get hurt.
Dud-Mike Sims-Walker, he's going to do virtually nothing.
Dud-Owen Daniels won't be the same player.
Dud - Kolb. Word is Vick might take some of his redzone opportunities.
Dud - MJD. He really wore down last year, and the knee is a concern.
3. Calvin Johnson
4. Miles Austin
5. Roddy White
Dud - Reggie Wayne. I'm not saying he'll have a terrible year, but too many mouths to feed in Indy.
Dud - Daniels. He just won't be the same this year on that knee.
1. Drew Brees
2. Aaron Rodgers
3. Peyton Manning
4. Tom Brady
5. Eli Manning
1. Adrian Peterson
2. Chris Johnson
3. Maurice Jones Drew
4. Matt Forte
5. Michael Turner
1. Andre Johnson
2. Reggie Wayne
3. Randy Moss
4. Calvin Johnson
5. Larry Fitzgerald
1. Dallas Clark
2. Jason Witten
3. Jeremichael Finley
4. Brent Celek
5. Antonio Gates
Dud - I don't think Peyton could even be considered one as it's too obvious, so I'll go Ryan.
Dud - Not sure if MJD would still count. Same for Turner. So aside from those two, I'll say CJ.
2. Andre Johnson
3. Calvin Johnson
4. Roddy White
5. Vincent Jackson
Dud - Not sure if Reggie Wayne counts. I'll go Jennings due to Finley's return.
Dud - Again, not sure if Clark would count here. That's the only top guy I think will struggle. I also think Daniels and maybe even Hernandez could approach top 5 numbers.
Always thought this was interesting to do. I see I was the only one who did it last year, but we'll give it another try. Lol.
Dud - Vick. I just don't see him staying healthy.
Dud - Well needless to say if I don't have Foster in my top 5, he's the guy. I just have a feeling he's gonna get hurt.
Brown/Decker (yes they will tie for 5th. Lol)
Dud(s) - I don't see AJ, Jennings, or Jordy doing as well as expected
Dud - Finley. He missed a lot of camp, and hasn't been the healthiest guy in the past.
I'm realizing a lot of my duds are Packer receivers, and that's not good as I have Rodgers in my money league. Hopefully I'm wrong. :laugh:

I'm not much of a Football expert, so I was wondering why, before the start of the season, every one was saying that Rice, McCoy and Foster were the undisputed top 3 RBs (and arguably the top 3 overall picks) in any fantasy draft, and now hardly anybody ranks all three of them in their RB top 5? Rice seems to be making most poeple's lists, but McCoy and especially Foster are left out often. Any insight is greatly appreciated.
And also, what do people thing of C J Spiller? He seems to be doing really well.
Foster is still a top 5 RB, the only reason I can think of for him dropping out is that his backup, Ben Tate, is taking carries from him. McCoy hasn't got off to a good start.
Also, Fred Jackson looks like he will be back in a couple weeks, and Spiller will split the load with Jackson. He will be GREAT for fantasy until then, but then become a flex play at best. Gailey has already said he doesn't want to overwork either of them, he wants to keep them fresh, so you're looking at ~15 carries a piece maybe. Also, his pace is unsustainable...averaging over 10 yards per carry through two games.
When Fred comes back he'll be lucky to get 10 carries a game, this is CJs team now.CJ has superstar potential, Fred doesn't.CJ is one of if no the most explosive RB in the league with home run threat every touch of the ball.
CJ is ending up with 1600+ total yards with 15+ TDs if healthy.Fred is a backup at best, injury prone 31 year old ain't taking over the starting job from CJ.
It will be a split at best for Spiller...
Who is getting paid the money?
They are not going to let Jackson sit the bench, he put up just as big of numbers Spiller has and regardless of age, they are to vested with Jackson.
When he comes back 50-50....you are simply mad if you think otherwise
I'm glad my view on Spiller turned out true, told ya guys he is a beast. Cannot wait for next season with a competent head coach, next year Spiller will get 2,000+ total yards and 15 TDs .
And in no way shape or form am I ripping AmericanDream, its not a bad list and isn't a big deal or anything, it just wasn't a "perfect list"
Yeah, um, I'm going to pretend I didn't re-read my predictions :laugh:
