We barely made it to the divisional round of the NFL playoffs, but I think I can speak for the majority of the fantasy football community when I say it’s never too early to look ahead to next season! Whether you’re looking to defend your title already or looking to redeem yourself for a rough ending, fantasy managers’ rest is short; there is never a perfect time to prepare – because it is ALWAYS the perfect time to prepare.
So fantasy football analysts Andy Behrens, Matt Harmon and Tank Williams make some bold predictions for the 2023 season in the video above!
Which of these fantastic predictions will come true in 2023?
Andy starts the game with a player that many people are talking about now: the quarterback of the Jacksonville Jaguars, Trevor Lawrence. Lawrence just completed one of the most incredible comebacks in playoff history, but his fantastic performance last season was no laughing matter either. Lawrence finished the eighth-highest-scoring fantasy quarterback in 2022, and Andy believes he’ll be in the top 3-5 in 2023!
Speaking of quarterbacks, Matt thinks the 2023 draft season will mark the return of elite quarterbacks to the first round — even in non-Superflex leagues!
Let’s be honest: The quarterback was pretty messy in fantasy 2022. You’re lost in the middle of nowhere if you either A) didn’t pick a top 3 option, or B) didn’t find a quality gem late. Everything in between, from the vets to the new school, more often than not left us with a lot to be desired. So the value Jalen Herts, Patrick Mahomes and/or Josh Allen gets even bigger – maybe enough to bring them back in the first round.
Tank moves away from the signalers to highlight the running back he thinks will be in the top five at his position in 2023: Seattle Seahawks rookie Kenneth Walker! He explains the young man’s case in the video above – watch it now to see all of our analysts’ data for next season!
