Now that the draft is over, people are putting in their final predictions for next season. I’ll hold off until June cuts/early training camp injuries roll around. However, I figured now is a good time to publish a recap of how I did last year compared to the actual results. I made these predictions in August, and they turned out pretty solid. Unfortunately I deleted the article and video of these predictions, so it’s up to you to believe me. But seeing as this blog has under 25 followers, I really have no reason to lie. Starting this year, I’ll keep them up as proof and see if I can keep performing well. Anyways, here they are.
