Hello Razzballers! We are going to just have to pretend that there will be a full season of football this year and use our ability to block out those things that we rather not think about. School loans? Huh, what’s that? Global warming? Never heard of it!
So let’s look ahead! I thought I’d take a look at the wisdom of crowds. Loosely defined it says that if enough people predict the stats of a player, the mean will be closer than any individual’s projections. This is often the case when a large group of people make guesses about things like the number of jelly beans in a jar or the weight of Ted Washington. But of course projections are a different animal since we believe we know what we the hell we are talking about and outside influences will also have a huge impact, but it’s still fun to see what happens!
I thought I’d choose players that have some questions, have changed roles, etc… The first is Jonathan Stewart who should be the main back for the Panthers with Mike Goodson as the third down back. DeAngelo Williams is most likely gone, so for this exercise let’s say he is out the door. So let’s see if this shizz works. Give it your best shot!
So throw your projections in the comments — rushing attempts/rushing yards/rushing TDs — receptions/receiving yards/receiving TDs
