32 BOLD NFL FANTASY FOOTBALL PREDICTIONS FOR 2021

AFC EAST:

BUFFALO BILLS: Many believe that Josh Allen is due for regression in 2021. My bold prediction is that Josh Allen replicates his 2020 season and has an almost identical statistical season in 2021, and is once again a Top 5 quarterback at the position.

MIAMI DOLPHINS: Not DeVante Parker, and not highly-touted rookie speedster Jaylen Waddle, but Will Fuller will lead the Miami Dolphins receiving core in Fantasy production during the 2021 season and finishes as a Top 25 Fantasy receiver.

NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS: Damien Harris dominates the New England Patriots backfield, and with rookie quarterback Mac Jones under center, the goal-line work will be his as well. Damien Harris surprises many with a Top 12 Fantasy running back season.

NEW YORK JETS: Zach Wilson immediately propels the New York Jets offense. Building rapport with Corey Davis, Elijah Moore, and Jamison Crowder, Wilson is a Top 15 fantasy quarterback in his rookie campaign.

AFC NORTH:

BALTIMORE RAVENS: Lamar Jackson rushes for 1,000 yards for the third time, leads the team in rushing, is a highly effective passer, and is second in fantasy points to only Patrick Mahomes by season’s end. Bonus Bold Prediction: Lamar Jackson leads the Baltimore Ravens to the Super Bowl.

CINCINNATI BENGALS: Even with highly-touted rookie receiver Ja’Marr Chase in tow, Tee Higgins leads the Cincinnati Bengals in catches, yards, and touchdowns as he becomes a Top 12 fantasy wide receiver.

CLEVELAND BROWNS: The Cleveland offense begins to sway a bit more in favor of their passing game. The Browns become a more balanced offense, and by their shift in play-calling, Baker Mayfield becomes a Top 15 fantasy quarterback and MVP candidate.

PITTSBURGH STEELERS: Ben Roethlisberger has a surprising resurgent season and lifts all the playmakers for the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Steelers offense is Top 5 in the league, and Pittsburgh surprisingly wins the AFC North.

AFC SOUTH:

HOUSTON TEXANS: Many around the team have buried him this off-season, but David Johnson has a resurrection this season and outshines both Mark Ingram and Phillip Lindsay en route to leading the team in fantasy points at the running back position. 

INDIANAPOLIS COLTS: Carson Wentz locks on to the second-year wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. Pittman Jr. becomes the focal point of the passing game and becomes a Top 15 fantasy wide receiver in 2021.

JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS: Following the unfortunate injury to Travis Etienne, James Robinson takes flight. Robinson picks up where he left off in 2020. Robinson produces solid RB1 numbers during the season and finishes as a Top 12 fantasy back in 2021.

TENNESSEE TITANS: Ryan Tannehill leads a higher volume passing attack featuring A.J. Brown and Julio Jones. Ryan Tannehill is a Top 10 fantasy quarterback in 2021 and leads the Tennessee Titans to an AFC South division title.

AFC WEST:

DENVER BRONCOS: Javonte Williams is the top rookie fantasy running back in 2021, even outscoring Najee Harris. Williams takes the reigns of the Broncos’ backfield from game one and never looks back. Javonte Williams is a Top 15 fantasy back in 2021.

KANSAS CITY CHIEFS: Patrick Mahomes replicates his 2018 season and throws 50 touchdown passes en route to being the top player in all of Fantasy Football and winning a 2nd MVP award.
