Wisdom of Crowds Review: QBs and WRsThis week, our Wisdom of Crowds review finishes on quarterbacks and examines the seven wide receivers we ran projections for before the 2010 season. Spoiler alert: The Randy Moss one looks bad for everyone involved.
They did this last year as well. Love it when someone has the balls to actually show what they said, and the compare it to what actually happened.
Projected: 2,952 passing yards, 18 touchdowns, 16 interceptions
Actual: 341 passing yards, 3 touchdowns, 4 interceptions
Pro-rated: 1,819 passing yards, 16 touchdowns, 21 interceptions
This was a couple of days after Brett Favre had reportedly retired. Now, it only seems to have significant potential in UFL fantasy leagues.
Projected: 84 receptions, 1,272 receiving yards, 13 touchdowns
Actual: 28 receptions, 393 receiving yards, 5 touchdowns
And, in my infinite wisdom, I added that his average projection "... might be understating his upside. I believe he has the potential to be the best wideout in football -- even at age 33." It turns out that he was arguably the best wide receiver named Randy in football, although Randy Hymes had 18 touchdowns for the Bossier-Shreveport Battle Wings.
Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.
