The 2021 Fantasy Football season is here. You may be drafting this weekend or you may have drafted already. We want to make sure you are ready for the season. Above all, we want you to dominate this year. Here are 10 bold predictions on what will happen during the 2021 fantasy football season.
Nick Chubb will lead the league in rushing yards in 2021
Chubb is running behind PFF’s number 1 graded offensive line this year. Chubb got paid this summer, Kareem Hunt is of no threat to his job, and because the Browns have an easy schedule, he will be the league’s leading rusher.
Clyde Edwards-Helaire does not finish Top 24 at Running Back
First, the Kansas City Chief’s starting running back suffered lower body injuries last year and is currently dealing with an ankle injury in training camp. Also, there’s a chance Clyde loses goalline work to the bigger Darrel Williams. Also, a chance Clyde loses some work in the passing game to the explosive Jerick McKinnon. Finally, he will always be at best the third option any given play behind Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce. Don’t expect Clyde to finish Top 24 for running backs in the 2021 fantasy football season.
Myles Gaskin finishes in the Top 15 at Running Back
Myles Gaskin was tremendous in the games he played last year. For example, he averaged 16.8 fantasy points per game. Therefore, if he can stay healthy, this year we should expect more great numbers. I do not believe Malcolm Brown and Salvon Ahmed will cut into Gaskin’s workload a significant amount. For where he is going in drafts, he is a steal. Gaskin can very well finish Top 15 at running back in the 2021 fantasy football season.
Robert Tonyan is a Top 3 Tight End in 2021
The Tight End 3 last year is being drafted in the middle rounds this year. Aaron Rodgers will still be his quarterback and by all reports, he looks great in training camp. As a result, I expect similar numbers to last year if not better for the 2021 fantasy football season
Lamar Jackson finishes as 2021 Fantasy Football’s Quarterback 1
I expect Lamar to rush for over 1000 yards. No JK Dobbins and a banged-up receiving core, Lamar will run wild. Therfore, he can put up decent passing numbers and still finish the Quarterback 1 because of his rushing ability.
Julio Jones does not finish Top 20 at Wide Receiver
The Tennessee Titans offense will still run through Derrick Henry. In the passing game, I expect AJ Brown to be the number 1 receiver. Jones has more red flags this year. For example, he dealt with injuries last year, hasn’t practiced much with his new team this training camp, and has never been much of a touchdown scorer.
Corey Davis finishes Top 20 at Wide Receiver
The New York Jets number 1 has a massive value this year. Zach Wilson looked his way often in the preseason and I expect that to continue into the regular season. Because of his volume, Davis can finish as a Top 20 wide receiver.
5 Teams will have two Top 24 Wide Receivers in Fantasy Football this year
Dallas Cowboys – Amari Cooper and CeeDee Lamb
Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Mike Evans and Chris Godwin
Pittsburgh Steelers – Dionte Johnson and Chase Claypool
Seattle Seahawks – DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett
Carolina Panthers – DJ Moore and Robby Anderson
Raheem Mostert/Trey Sermon/Trey Lance will win you Fantasy Football leagues
The San Francisco 49ers have an easy strength of schedule. Their playoff schedule is one to target. Week 14 – at Cincinnati Bengals, Week 15 – Atlanta Falcons, Week 16 – at Tennessee Titans, Week 17 – Houston Texans. In conclusion, get 49ers come playoff time.
Tom Brady is the 2021 League MVP
Tom Brady is league MVP: For fantasy purposes, I think Brady will finish Top 5 at the quarterback position. With the weapons around him including Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Antonio Brown, Giovani Bernard, Leonard Fournette, Rob Gronkowski, and OJ Howard. There is just too much firepower for Brady not to succeed. Most importantly, combine this offense with a top defense in the league. Your 2021 NFL MVP will be Tom Brady.
