6. Andre Williams rushes for 8 TDs.
At Boston College Andre Williams rushed for 2,177 yards and 18 TDs. Williams is going to start the season as the goal line back for the New York Giants. He is going to get a lot of opportunities at the goal line this season.\

7. Christine Michael will be a Top 10 fantasy back.
This is a very bold prediction, because Marshawn Lynch will need to get injured early into the season for this to happen. Michael is one of the most talented back up running backs in the NFL. In the YouTube clips, click here and here you will notice Michael has an elite level burst, and the ability to make defenders miss in the open field. I am very excited to see what Michael can do when he gets the opportunity to start or even split carries with Robert Turbin.
8. Three of the five top running backs drafted won’t be in the top 5 once the season ends (McCoy, Charles, Peterson Forte, Lacey)
Odds are the current Top 5 running backs drafted won’t finish the season in the Top 5. There are a lot of factors that may cause this, and injuries are usually the biggest factor. Also, there’s usually a running back or two who steps up their game and make their way into the Top 5. Sometimes the elite running backs have bad seasons and wind up finishing the season outside the Top 5.

9. Browns will finish the season 5-11 and Johnny Manziel will be a great fantasy QB
This is almost a guarantee about one of the most talked about teams of the preseason. Their defense is good enough to keep them in a lot of games their passing game is horrid and will prevent them from winning a lot of their games.
Johnny Manziel will eventually be the staring quarterback, and he will take the media by storm more than he already has. He will be a great fantasy quarterback compared to what Tim Tebow was like when he was with the Broncos. Manziel may not be the greatest NFL QB, but for fantasy purposes he will be great to have because he will get a lot of rushing yards.
10. Saints beat the Bengals in the Super Bowl
It’s not to far-fetched for the Cincinnati Bengals to make the Super Bowl, they are solid on both sides of the ball. They have a great passing game (A.J. Green at wide receiver makes any team have a great passing game), and they can run the ball. For a bonus, the Bengals have one of the best defenses in the league.
The Sants has the most prolific offense in the league, they can score points at will. Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan will have their defense more developed this year and will the Saints will be one of the top contenders out of the NFC this year.
Both do these two teams are full of stud fantasy players from Brees to Green, and a Super Bowl between these two teams would be fun two watch.
