This season teams have many new faces in new places- as a big free agency took place earlier this offseason.

PACKERS over PANTHERS
STEELERS over TEXANS
CARDINALS over PACKERS
Super Bowl LI-
CARDINALS over STEELERS 32-29
MVP- Carson Palmer 367 Pass Yds, 3 TD’s
That’s a wrap for the team predictions- but now let’s get to the players…
MVP- BEN ROETHLISBERGER (STEELERS QB): In 2016, a fired up Big Ben lives up to his biggest hype this season- leading Pittsburgh to the Super Bowl using his weapons of RB Le’Veon Bell (who plays his first career full season) and end of season top 3 WR; Antonio Brown.
(Runner Ups: Aaron Rodgers, David Johnson, Deandre Hopkins, Antonio Brown)
O-ROTY- EZEKIEL ELLIOT (COWBOYS RB): Coming straight out of Ohio St.- the 2016 4th selection by the Cowboys goes off to lead the NFL in rushing yards behind a top level Cowboys O-Line leading the way.
(Runner Up- Sterling Shepard, Carson Wentz, Dak Prescott, Tajae Sharpe)
D-ROTY- JALEN RAMSEY (JAGUARS DB):
Ramsey is major part of the Jaguars D transformation- as they’re suprisingly solid this year. Ramsey shuts down his matchup game to game with an overall solid rookie season.
(Runner Up- Myles Jack, Robert Nkemdiche, Darron Lee)
OPOY- DAVID JOHNSON (CARDINALS RB):
This kid is a monster… Coming off a strong 2nd half of the year- Johnson lives up to the insane hype and is Carson Palmer’s biggest weapon this season- racking up reception and rushing yards in the act…
DPOY- TYRANN MATTHIEU (CARDINALS DB):
The Honey Badger is in for a year. Matthieu will lead this Cards D by being all over the field- with the help of DB Patrick Peterson…
(Runner Up- Khalil Mack, JJ Watt, Josh Norman, Aaron Donald)
COTY- GUS BRADLEY (JAGUARS HC):
The Jags are new, young, fresh, talented and ready to rock and roll after a long stretch of being a bottom 3 team in football. They have a strong Offense led by QB Blake Bortles, and WR Allen Robinson. They also have a developing defense made up of rookies Jalen Ramsey, Myles Jack- and reigning SB 50 champion Malik Jackson… Gus does a great job with this team in their breakout year winning the Coat=ch of the Year…
CPOTY- JOSH GORDON (BROWNS WR):
Gordon makes his return to the field this year after a year long suspension last year. He returns to his old dominant self- helping RG3 start to turn his career back around.
(Runner Up- Jordy Nelson, Jamaal Charles, Keenan Allen, Victor Cruz)
*Most Improved Player- ROBERT GRIFFIN III (BROWNS QB):
I believe in RG3. He’s in a great position to improve as he has a running back option in Duke Johnson Jr. , a rookie WR in Corey Coleman, a dangerous WR in Terelle Pryor, a big TE in Gary Barniadge and my CPOTY pick Josh Gordon. Don’t be surprised with a top 15 season…
That’s all guys… Good luck to everyone in their fantasy leagues and enjoy the season! Stay tuned on @coleonsports on Instagram and Twitter…
