Fantasy Football Notes to End 2020 and a 2021 Look Ahead


2020 Lessons Learned:

COVID was the ultimate wild-card, hopefully, we never have to deal with that again. Don’t over-react to offseason drama and don’t undersell a steady unchanging situation. Packers/Titans respectively come to mind. One other thing I noticed is that after the first wave of RB’s, it was really a crap shoot at the position. RB's picked in round 3 or later were largely duds.

2020 Right vs Wrong: I nailed some predictions heading into 2020 and was dead wrong on others. Below is my list of full-transparency for whose production I predicted correctly/incorrectly.

Right- CEH (RB 18 PPR)

Wrong- Darren Waller

Right- James Robinson (over Devine Ozigbo/Chris Thompson)

Wrong- David Montgomery

Right- Antonio Gibson (talent/opportunity > college workload)

Wrong- Michael Thomas

Right- Murray as the #3 QB coming in (Consensus: Mahomes, Lamar, then Dak, Watson, Wilson, Kyler)

Wrong- Chris Godwin (86-1333-9 in 2019 / 60-707-5 this year)

Right/Wrong- Jonathan Taylor (Finishing as RB7, 11PPG in his first 9 games, 22ppg final 5)

Wrong- Davante Parker (Almost every good performance was followed by a dud of a week)
