A friend in my fantasy football league texted me this morning saying, “Chris is projected to beat me 445 to 128. F this league.” I went to our league page and sure enough, the Cincinnati Bengals’ defense and special teams were projected to score 348 fantasy points. I checked my other league and noticed that the Cowboys (708 points), Cardinals (312) Falcons (245), Bills (173), Dolphins (172), Colts (158) and Ravens (155) all had what are probably slightly inflated score projections. I’m not sure what happened here, but if these scores are in anyway accurate we’re going to see much different approaches to fantasy drafts next August.
Who saw this coming?
