Unless you get sadistic pleasure out of watching Richard Bartel short-arm out routes, last night's Hall of Fame game lacked entertainment. Not to worry, loyal FO reader, NFL entertainment -- at least the fantasy kind -- returns today in the form of our "Wisdom of Crowds" feature. Over the next four weeks, we'll use our @fboutsiders Twitter account to get your fantasy projections for a player or two each day.
At the end of each week, I'll compile the responses, and have a post the following week about what our readership had to say. Last year, you were pretty darn prescient.
So, if you want to participate, make sure to follow us on Twitter, and check in every day for the next month. For quarterbacks, predict passing yards, passing touchdowns, and interceptions. For running backs, predict carries, rushing yards, and rushing touchdowns. For wide receivers, predict receptions, receiving yards, and receiving touchdowns. For all players, assume a full 16-game season.
Here's a running list of players we've done so far. Feel free to tweet us predictions for any of these players at any time between now and the beginning of the season. For the weekly columns this month, I'll only be able to use predictions submitted by the previous Sunday (e.g., by 8/12 for players from 8/6 to 8/10), but I'll use all predictions (no matter how "late" they are) for the purposes of the review piece after the season.
August 6 -- Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III
August 7 -- Philip Rivers and Jay Cutler
August 9 -- BenJarvus Green-Ellis and DeMarco Murray
August 10 -- Fred Jackson and James Starks
August 13 -- David Wilson
August 14 -- Doug Martin
August 15 -- Matt Forte
August 16 -- Darren McFadden
August 17 -- Jamaal Charles

August 22 -- Pierre Garcon

August 28 -- Robert Meachem
August 29 -- Randy Moss
August 30 -- Vincent Jackson
Thanks a lot, Dak Prescott. Now more people will think the fourth round is still a gold mine for quarterbacks, but the data says otherwise. The update to our quarterback draft study for 1994-2016 shows little has changed: finding a good QB is really hard.
