Team-By-Team Bold Predictions for the 2010 Season (AFC Edition)

AFC East

Buffalo Bills – Fred Jackson (pictured above) will rush for more yards than C.J. Spiller and Marshawn Lynch combine for together.

Miami Dolphins – Brandon Marshall will lead the league in receptions, but not even come close in yards.

New England Patriots – The Patriots will miss out on the playoffs like they did in 2008. Don’t think Tom Brady will even get close to his 50-TD performance in ’07, the over-under is 25 this season.

New York Jets – LaDainian Tomlinson will eclipse the 1,000 yard mark for the ninth time in his career. Guess what, he will also score double-digit touchdowns to continue the trend which has been in effect his entire career (9 straight seasons).

AFC West

Denver Broncos – Unfortunately, Tim Tebow will start at least four games this season for a struggling Denver squad.

Kansas City Chiefs - The Chiefs' fifth overall pick out of Tennessee, Eric Berry, will win the defensive Rookie of the Year Award. This will be the first notch en route to a successful career from the safety position for Berry.

Oakland Raiders - Newly acquired quarterback Jason Campbell will help lead the Raiders to a surprising playoff berth in '10. Running Backs Darren McFadden and Michael Bush will also play through at least three-fourths of the season.

San Diego Chargers - Rookie running back Ryan Mathews will not even crack the top 20 in fantasy backs this season. Somehow he's ranked 14th in the preseason fantasy rankings.

AFC North

Baltimore Ravens - The Ravens will be the AFC-representative in this year's Super Bowl. Joe Flacco and Ray Rice will have monster fantasy years and the defense will continue to do what they do.

Cincinnati Bengals - Carson Palmer will eclipse the 4,000 yard mark for the third time in his eight-year career. Newly acquired Terrell Owens will not be a problem all year in Cincinnati.

Cleveland Browns - Mohamed Massoquoi and Jake Delhomme will hook up for at least ten touchdowns. That's at least four more than they will have in the win column.

Pittsburgh Steelers - The Steelers will miss out on the playoffs for the second year in a row. However, Rashard Mendenhall will be a top-ten running back when it's all said and done.

AFC South

Houston Texans - Steve Slaton will finish with more all-purpose yards than Arian Foster.

Indianapolis Colts - Pierre Garcon will lead the team in receiving yards and touchdowns. Yes I said it, Reggie Wayne will be behind Garcon in both of those catergories at the end of the season.

Jacksonville Jaguars - Mike Sims-Walker will rank higher among fantasy wide receivers than does Maurice Jones-Drew among fantasy running backs.

Tennessee Titans - Vince Young will be a legitiamite number one option as a fantasy quarterback. Young and Kenny Britt will combine for more fantasy points than the ever-so-popular Chris Johnson.
