I enjoy reading Gil Bandt’s takes on NFL players. This week he has provided us with his predicted stat leaders for 2016. I can’t really put up an argument with his choices. I had the honor of meeting him in Las Vegas one year and shared some good conversation, a very intuitive and respected man.
Drew Brees – I can see that, no more Peyton, Brady on the back burner, I cant say if Carson Palmer garnered any thoughts that figured into his assessment?
Plausible Rushing Yards
Adrian Peterson – has not shown signs of slowing down though he is at that age where the running backs begin to taper off, many often wondered if this guy is even human?
Jeremy Hill – That is interesting, I have Hill projected at 9 Touch downs on the year. Julio will lead the league in receiving yards and Allen Robinson will receive the most receiving touch downs SACKS, Khalil Mack This guy is a force to be reckoned with. I believe the Raiders will surprise the masses this year- Does anybody want to see a Jaguars/Raiders AFC Championship game? Now this one made me smile and nod, Gils prediction for most tackles will go to a Dallas Cowboy (of Course) Can’t have Brandt write anything that does not include a Dallas Cowboy.
His prediction for 2016 Leading Tackles: Sean Lee, with the current state of the Cowboys defensive front I can believe that, this is one LB I believe is going to get worked into the ground and I have to wonder if he will even make it to week 8.
Good Luck Guys!
