3 Crazy Bold Predictions for Week 3!
Every Sunday morning our team of Rob Willette, Ryan McDowell, and Sal Leto bring you their Bold Predictions of the week. Maybe they are out of their minds or maybe they have the player that can win it all for you this week.
Ian Thomas will Total 75 yards and a touchdown
In his first start for injured veteran TE Greg Olsen last week, the rookie Thomas saw a huge opportunity, playing over 90% of the snaps and running 43 routes, more than all TEs except Zach Ertz and Evan Engram. Those also had a sure touchdown, but couldn’t quite hang on. This week, Thomas and the Panthers face the Bengals who have given it up to tight ends this year. Cincy is allowing an average of 26 fantasy points per game to the tight end spot, easily the most in the league. – Ryan Mcdowell
Antonio Brown will Have 300+ Yards Receiving
That’s right, checking in from the squeaky wheel gets the oil department, if Pittsburgh wants to right the ship and keep their star diva wide receiver happy they will feed him ALL GAME LONG! If Big Ben wants to make nice after a former PR employee for the Steelers claimed he is the one who makes AB great he will get on board as well. It’s Monday night and the stage will be set with all the pregame buzz about Bell still not reporting and Brown wants to be traded. Throw road/home splits out the window and settle in on your couch because the only two teams worse than the Chiefs at stopping the pass are locking up in Prime Time! – Sal Leto
Two Patriots Running Backs Rack Up 100+ Total Yards
The Lions have been roasted by both Isiaiah Crowell and Matt Breida already this season. Noboody exploits weaknesses better than The Hoodie. Detroit simply does not have the personnel to slow down New England, and this game could be heavy on Sony Michel, Rex Burkhead, and James White. Only White has returned any value of the three this year but all make for intriguing flex plays in a game which could easily hit the over. – Rob Willette
