2014 Fantasy Football 50 Predictions

Predictions are a funny thing. All kinds of people make them. Analysts, experts, pundits, coaches, players, fans, and idiots, and the only thing that separates all of them is whether their predictions come true or not. I’m going to come out and say I guarantee that not everything I’m going to predict is going to come true, but I’m sure most of it will.
