Fantasy Football Bold Predictions
NFL and football, in general, is one of the most fun and interesting sports to try to interpret. Whether you are betting on games or trying to find that diamond in the rough to have a monster game, you rarely will be 100% right. That’s why doing research and listening to your favorite fantasy football experts is a must. Let’s dive into this week’s bold predictions to see if we can find that big game we are all hoping for.
Jameis Winston Will Be Disastrous in Week 6
Jameis Winston is about as inconsistent as you can get when it comes to NFL quarterbacks. In the two weeks prior to week five, Winston threw for 765 yards and seven touchdowns. Last week, he struggled to crack 200 yards against the division rival New Orleans Saints. So what can you expect from him on a weekly basis? The furthest you can look ahead with him is to the next game. He gets another division rival team the Carolina Panthers this week, and we can expect him to put up a dud of a game. He will struggle to get to 200 yards again this week and won’t throw a passing touchdown all while throwing 2 picks.
Dalvin Cook Struggles Against Eagles
Dalvin Cook has been the lone bright spot for the Minnesota Vikings offense who has struggled to get anything but the running game going this year. The offensive line and the zone running scheme has been very promising this year, as Cook is the second leading rusher in the NFL. This week will pose a problem against the Philadelphia Eagles. You can hone in your expectations for Cook this week as he will have less than 50 yards rushing and won’t make into the endzone.
Todd Gurley Has Less Than 7 Points
Talk about a complete 180, Todd Gurley was regarded as the best back in football last year but now this year has seen him struggle to reach more than 65 yards rushing, which he has done just once in the first five weeks of the season and he has yet to reach 100. He has found the endzone four times in the last two games which have salvaged his fantasy weeks, but this week he won’t be so lucky. The 49ers stout defensive line will hold him to under the 65 yards rushing again this week and he won’t find the endzone.
Stefon Diggs Shines
Off the field, Stefon Diggs has been apart of a lot of rumors and speculation this year. On the field, Diggs is one of the most electrifying and polarizing wide receivers in the game when his quarterback gets him the ball. The only thing is, Kirk Cousins has struggled to get him his targets and he’s had mainly a disappointing five weeks of the season. This week, however, Diggs will find his stride. Diggs will take advantage of this weak secondary in Philly and will put up his second 100+ yard receiving week and will find the end zone twice, as the Vikings will have to sling the ball all over the field in order to beat the Eagles Sunday.
Austin Hooper Will Be The Tight End 1
Austin Hooper has been one of the best and most consistent tight ends of the 2019 season. He’s very athletic a posses major matchup issues for defenses. Last week was just the second time teams have held him under 60 yards receiving this year. This week will be much like the weeks previous. Arizona has held just one tight end to under 18 fantasy points. Hooper is in for a monster week, as he will be the third tight end to put up 100+ receiving yards against the Cardinals and will find the endzone to be the top tight end of the week.
