2018 Fantasy Player Predictions




If you believe that Stefon Diggs is due for a breakout year, Adam Thielen is a slot machine and the Vikings defense will create a lot of opportunities for the offense, then Kirk Cousins is most certainly your undervalued quarterback for 2018. He is currently going undrafted in a lot of drafts…Tarik Cohen has a great opportunity to become this seasons “Human-joystick” in a Matt Nagy offense designed to exploit matchups and create big plays in space…Chris Godwin has been making quite the name for himself in Tampa. Godwin may leapfrog an aging DeSean Jackson and also has versatility to line up on the outside and in the slot…Hayden Hurst may miss a few games to start the season but will be stepping into a large target share in Baltimore with the departure of Ben Watson (61 rec, 522 yards, 4 TD) and an overhauled receiver group…Saquon Barkley is the rookie running back that the Giants are hoping returns them to their once dominant “Big Blue” punishing run team status. The offensive line is certainly questionable but Barkley possesses the freak athletic ability to be the difference maker…Christian Kirk may potentially end up as the Cardinals WR2 or WR3 opposite Larry Fitzgerald. He is a solid route runner and is also versatile enough to play outside or in the slot. There is little competition from fellow receivers Brice Butler, J.J Nelson and Chad Williams…The hype train on Patrick Mahomes is most certainly chugging along, and while I am not saying he will be a total dud, bust status is appropriate due to the sheer level of expectations for him during this offseason. A developing quarterbacks best friend is a strong run game. Andy Reid knows how develop quarterbacks and will not put the entire offense on his shoulders out of the gate…LeSean McCoy is likely the centerpiece of the most non-exciting offense in the league this year. Starting a rookie quarterback, Kelvin Benjamin and Charles Clay appear as the only other worries for opposing defenses…Adam Thielen will not be a complete bust by any means, but is in the category due to the departure of Pat Shurmur, the return of running back Dalvin Cook and new quarterback Kirk Cousins. Thielen is most certainly not a total bust, but will have quite the regression in 2018…Greg Olsen could reach bust status on a Carolina team that looks likely to increase Christian McCaffrey’s targets, protect Cam Newton and implement some variety into an offense that became very predictable under former coordinator Mike Shula. New offensive coordinator Norv Turner will likely spread the targets between rookie receiver D.J. Moore, running back Christian McCaffrey, receivers D. Funchess and T. Smith.
