The bold fantasy football predictions continue for Week 3 of the NFL Season.
Last week I went really bold and lost. The only prediction that came close to hitting its mark was Saquon Barkley finishing with a top-5 running back performance in Week 2. Otherwise, my bold fantasy football predictions for Week 2 missed the mark.
The biggest fail was calling for Patrick Mahomes to come back down to earth. He made me look foolish by having a record setting day throwing for 326 yards and six touchdowns.
Mahomes has come out of the gate on fire and hasn’t show any signs of slowing down. He is spreading the ball around, attacking deep down field and making smart decisions. Andy Reid appears to fully trust his young quarterback and has put the team in his hands.
George Kittle let me down big-time catching only two passes for 22 yards. The bigger concern was that he only got four targets. His usage since Jimmy Garoppolo took over has been very high, but this past week that changed.
I’m not worried about his long-term fantasy outlook, but I did expect big things from Kittle against the Detroit Lions.
Jordan Howard didn’t have a big fantasy day, but he remained in involved in the Chicago Bears passing game. He is someone who will be heavily involved in Chicago’s offensive attack and should have much better fantasy production ahead.
This week I got back on that horse and put together five more bold fantasy football predictions. I’m taking the mindset of a cornerback and letting last week’s bust wash away.
