Brendan Taffe provides one bold prediction for each NFL team for the 2020 season.
For those who didn't see this series last year, I try to take a different approach to fantasy projections than your run-of-the-mill rankings. The basis of my process is that the number one indicator of fantasy success is opportunities to touch the ball.

Therefore, if we want to make accurate projections, we need to look at each coach's scheme and how they like to spread the ball around.
There is often a disconnect between football outcomes and fantasy football production. The disconnect has its most significant impact when assessing the change in fantasy value for players on a team that drafted their new stud quarterback. In this article, we will look at the last decade of top-16 quarterbacks and analyze why you shouldn't expect increased fantasy production from any of the Bengals skill position players in 2020. However, if you think Burrow is going to be the greatest quarterback in NFL history, then you're probably going to disagree with everything in this article.
Zac Taylor’s first season as head coach of the Bengals did not go as planned. Star wideout AJ Green missed the entire season, and John Ross lost the majority of the season after starting the year off on fire. The O-line was in shambles, and the defense was awful.

Let’s take a look at their skill positions and outlook for 2020.
Drafting rookies is as much about landing spot as it is about talent and potential. Let's take a look at six rookie wide receivers and decide whether or not we should draft or fade.
