Ladies and Gentlemen it’s football season! What better way to kick off the season than some fantasy football stuff! Fantasy football has been home to around 33 million leagues according to Forbes. As a heavy fantasy football player myself, I am a huge fan of the actual sport and the game itself. We here at the The Dollars And Sense Sports Blog have compiled a list of QB predictions for the 2018 NFL season. These predictions are in no particular order.
The Big Dogs
Prediction: 4,738 Passing Yards, 41 TDs, 13 INTs
Aaron Rodgers is the man. After missing 9 games last year due to injury, Aaron Rodgers is primed for a big return. We see top stats in the league if Rodgers stays healthy.
Prediction: 4,269 Passing Yards, 28 TDs, 13 INTs, 67% Completion Percentage
From one future Hall of Famer to another, Drew Brees has been a consistent force since his early days in New Orleans. Now equipped with a prominent running game (without Mark Ingram for four games due to suspension) Drew Brees will be efficient as usual. This will not be one of those insane 5,000 yard passing seasons that we have grown accustomed to with Drew Brees, but he will have a great season nonetheless.
Prediction: 4,110 Passing Yards, 33 TDs, 9 INTs
Old man Shady Brady is still tearing up the NFL at 41 years old. The New England Patriots appear to show no sign of slowing down anytime soon. Tom Brady will go on to have another good season despite the drama and uncertainty that seems to surround the Patriots every year.
Prediction: 3,741 Passing Yards, 24 TDs, 12 INTs
Mr. Super Bowl Champion Carson Wentz was in line for the NFL MVP before he suffered a knee injury that would cause him to miss the final 3 games of the season. Although he has said that he feels fine, his status for starting Week 1 is still slightly up in the air. The Eagles would be wise to be cautious with their franchise QB which will possibly lead to soft numbers once he is healthy.
