1. NFL’s longest playoff drought will end at 16 years – Cleveland Browns will win the AFC North division.
2. QB Jacoby Brissett steps right in for Andrew Luck and leads the Colts to a 9-7 record and playoff appearance as a wild card team.
4. After 6 straight years of 80 catches, 1200 yards, 8 TDs for WR Antonio Brown, he will not reach any of those marks in 2019.
5. The Redskins, not the Dolphins, will finish with the worst record in the NFL (they are starting Erick Flowers at LG!!! That’s all you need to know…)
6. Giants QB Eli Manning will make the final start of his career on Thursday Night Football on October 10th vs Patriots. After the loss, Giants will fall to 1-5 and with a few extra days of prep, and the Cardinals at home the following week, rookie Daniel Jones will make his first career start and never relinquish the job again.
7. Does anyone really know the health status of Todd Gurley? I think he’s fine and he runs for 1,200 yards for the third consecutive season.
8. Titans QB Marcus Mariota is benched at some point during the season in favor of Ryan Tannehill
9. RB Melvin Gordon reports to the Chargers by week 10, as mandated and debuts week 11 vs the Chiefs. He finishes the season with five 100 yard rushing performances in the final six games.
10. WR Josh Gordon leads the Patriots in receiving yards, eclipsing 1,000 yards for the first time since 2013
11. Packers RB Aaron Jones finishes top 6 in the league in total rushing yards.
12. Cardinals RB David Johnson will succeed in his goal from two years ago – to be the third NFL player (and first since 1999) to have 1,000 yards rushing AND receiving
13. New Jets RB Leveon Bell will rush for more yards than his replacement, Steelers RB James Connor
