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

NFC East

Dallas Cowboys - Miles Austin will not finish as a top ten wide receiver in 2010 while Marion Barber and Felix Jones combine for 20+ touchdowns.

New York Giants - Brandon Jacobs (pictured above) will have the best season of his career by rushing 1200+ yards and scoring double-digit touchdowns.

Philadelphia Eagles - Tight-End Brent Celek will lead the team in receiving. Additionally, Kevin Kolb will help the Eagles win at least eight games in his first full year as a starter.

Washington Redskins - Despite hiring Mike Shanahan, no Redskins' running back will eclipse the 1,000 yard mark this season because there are too many of them.

NFC West

Arizona Cardinals - First year starter Matt Leinart will throw more interceptions than touchdowns. Cardinals will not repeat as NFC West champions.

San Francisco 49ers - The 49ers will run away with the NFC West Division behind the strong play of Frank Gore and Patrick Willis (pictured above). Gore will be an MVP candidate as a top-five running back and Patrick Willis will be nominated for Defensive Player of the Year.

Seattle Seahawks - Justin Forsett will have a breakout season for a losing team in the Seahawks. Forsett will be looked at as the new Maurice Jones-Drew and Ray Rice because he's another rumbling-and-bumbling small guy who can run and catch the ball.

St. Louis Rams - The Rams are on the upswing; that's not saying much when they win anywhere from 3-to-6 games this season. Fantasy predictions are limited to say the least.

NFC North

Chicago Bears - Head Coach Lovie Smith will be fired at the end of the year. The Bears will contend for a division title in a stacked NFC North, but will fall just short when it counts in the end.

Detroit Lions - Kevin Smith will finish the season with more rushing yards and touchdowns than rookie Jahvid Best out of California.

Green Bay Packers - The Packers will be the NFC-representative in this year's Super Bowl. Jermichael Finley (pictured above) will lead all tight-ends in receiving yardage and touchdowns. Greg Jennings will also be a top-five receiver this season. That means a ton of passing yards for Aaron Rodgers.

Minnesota Vikings - Brett Favre will not start in all 16 games this season. Moreover, you will be able to count the number of fumbles Adrian Petereson commits on one hand.

NFC South

Atlanta Falcons - Michael Turner will return to form and become a legitimate number one running back in fantasy. That means 1,200+ yards and 10+ touchdowns.

Carolina Panthers - Jonathan Stewart (pictured above) will rush for more yards than DeAngelo Williams for the second year in a row. Last season, Stewart edged out Williams by a total of 16 yards.

New Orleans Saints - Drew Brees and the Saints will not make it back to the Super Bowl, but they will put up offensive record-breaking numbers. Brees will go over 4,000 and 30 touchdowns for the third year in a row.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Like I mentioned in a previous article, Arrelious Benn will win offensive rookie of the year for posting a 800+ yard season with 9 or more touchdowns.
