The Official 2022 Board Bets/Predictions Thread

Recommended Posts

Lots of discussion on here always back and forth between great posters (yes even AxeElf) about how we see things playing out in the football season. So let's start a thread where we can create a repository for the bets and predictions we make throughout the year.

Here are a few to get us started.

TBay and I have a bet on Trevor Lawrence being a top 14 QB this year. If he is 14 or higher I win, 15 or lower and TBay wins. Currently Lawrence is 23rd.

Axe Elf said CeeDee Lamb would outscore Terry McLaurin by 61 points this season. So far McLaurin is on top.

AxeElf also said Derrick Henry would be the #1 RB in fantasy. So far he is not.

AxeElf said Kmet/Ertz/Goedert would stay close to Mark Andrews in points. He never specified what is "close" so he may need to clarify.

Lastly, AxeElf and I were trying to make some bet about IDPs. I offered a ton of concessions and AxeElf still tucked tail and ran on it. So we can close the book on this one.

Context, my little baboon, context.

Wow, you gave that a whole week before you made the call?  lol

Within 100.

A "bet" in which this poosie wouldn't send money over the internet.  And when you made it clear you wouldn't "bet" for money, it was axually Axe Elf who closed the book on that one when after ten posts I still couldn't get you to differentiate the situation in which we were making the bet--a league that started 2 IDPs--and another situation involving a league with 7 IDPs.  I only have time to teach fantasy football.  You'll have to learn reading comprehension on your own and then get back to me.

This isn't even a "board bets" thread; it's a thinly veiled "mock Axe Elf" thread.

I'm putting you in the Ignore bin with Weepaws.  This will be my last response to you, as you have nothing of value to say, nothing of substance to axe, and nothing but nonsense for arguments.  You will no longer be blessed by Axe Elf assistance in fantasy football, except that which you gain through osmosis when Axe Elf helps others.

Buh-bye.

What a whiny beeyatch you are. And no one else has put there stuff here yet.

I said "So far" on the Henry one...that indicates time will still tell.

As to the IDP one- I reasonably said I didn't want to send money thus potentially giving my shoot name over the message board. I said- "Winner gets to pick the other's screen name until next football season." Your response was "The name AxeElf carries too much clout to give it up..." which would be hilarious if I thought you were being sarcastic. I then tried to explain my league with 7 IDPs  WHILE going along with the 2 IDP list. I even selected my two guys and gave you the list of the next 20 ranked IDPs outside of the ones already selected. Basically I gave every concession you wanted and you still tucked tail on it. 

You are thin skinned and play in comfortable leagues you always play in and couldn't handle some real competition from me and the others here. It's fine. But you chickened out.

Crank it up guys, yeah. Like to see these predictions as it creates good conversations. Like to see some more guys post some bets/predictions on the season. So, after week 1 their's people already calling for Trey Lance's head. It was a rather putrid showing against the Bears but conditions were pretty bad too and I'm sure he had the jitters because of the expectations. It is calling for rain in the 49ers/Seattle gamebutI think Lance will bounce back this week. In factI believe he'll stay the starter for the whole season and we won't see Jimmy G unless Lance has an injury. He's going to have his struggles but hey you gotta let the guy play. He'll get better with more reps.

Thanks for posting this.  I knew our bet had to do with Lawrence, but for the life of me, I couldn't remember what it was.  :thumbsup:

A week 2 update on this:

The Trevor Lawrence bet between TBay and myself- Lawrence is currently sitting at QB #14 on the season. Big jump for him. I'm winning but obviously lots of season to go.

AxeElf predicted- Lamb would outscore McLaurin by 61 points. Currently McLaurin is ahead by 8. Perhaps AxeElf should've avoided the hubris and just taken Lamb by 31.

AxeElf predicted Derrick Henry as the #1 RB in fantasy. So far he is still not. Lots of season to go as well.

AxeElf said Kmet/Ertz/Goedert would stay within 100 points of Andrews. Andrews is 7 ahead of Ertz. 10 ahead of Goedert. 29 ahead of Kmet. So this looks good for AxeElf

AxeElf I guess has tucked tail on the IDP bet still. I don't blame him. 

Added 09/23 from Weepaws: N Harris in half point ppr won’t finsh in the top 12, so a first round pick, adp top six , he won’t finish as a rb1.
