I did 3 at each position for a reason, at current ADP/opinion all of these would classify to some degree as bold. I did 1 that I think may actually happen at each position, about 50% chance (Mahomes, Fournette, watkins, dickson). 1 that could happenand, about 25% (Jimmy G, Ballage, Davis, Rudolph). And 1 that if everything breaks right/wrong there is a 5 or so percent chance of happening (Ben, zeke, Gordon, Burton). Why would I waste my time on a post of 100 things that will never happen. I'm not sure if  you've posted a list or not yet seeing as I how I don't want to scroll through the whole thread but I would be interested in yours as most people in this thread are peoples' sleeper/breakout picks and  the more viewpoints the better.

I disagree with a ton of those, but it is a high quality bold list that you obviously put a lot of thought into.  Thanks for sharing.

Some alternative takes:

 

Arizona: Sam Bradford plays 16 games.

Buffalo: Charles Clay leads in receptions.

Cincinnati: Eifert misses the entire season.

Cleveland: goes 0-16 despite all of the roster monsters.

Denver: Keenum leads the Broncos into the playoffs as the team to beat.

GB: Rodgers uses J'Mon Moore, St. Brown, and Valdes-Scantling; DAdams busts.

Indianapolis: Luck throws.

Miami: Gore ends the season within the top 12 RBs, shows no signs of slowing down.

Oakland: Jalen Richard leads the backfield.

Pittsburgh: Burfict returns from suspension, plays two games, ends JuJu's season with a crushing injury, and ends his own via further suspension.

Seattle: Brandon Marshall takes a job on Thursday Night Football and does not play this season.

It's total bull****, but it was fun to make:

 

Arizona Cardinals: Not only does Rosen play, but he crushes it. Ends up the finest of the rookie QBs who start this year.
Atlanta Falcons: OC Sarkessian continues to f--- everything up, Falcons finish with unimpressive stats costing Sark his job.
Baltimore Ravens: Baltimore's passing game regains public respect, Crabtree finishes with 1,200 yards and 8 TDs.
Buffalo Bills: The Bills play competent football. Allen starts and looks horrible but the rest of the team covers up for it.
Carolina Panthers: Cam's ego dashes any hope of offensive cohesion, Panthers take last in the NFC South.
Chicago Bears: Nagy turns Chicago around, placing second in the NFC North and wins a wildcard game before getting stuffed by the Saints in the Divisional round.
Cincinnati Bengals: Who're they again?  Bengals remain a team in the NFL but Marvin Lewis is canned.
Cleveland Browns: The Browns make it into the post-season via a wildcard slot.
Dallas Cowboys: Leighton Vander-Esch wins DROY after brutalizing opposing RBs all season. Garrett's mis-coaching leads to another missed post-season.
Denver Broncos: Vance Joseph is fired half-way through the season, Broncos fail to make the play-offs despite solid play from Keenum.
Detroit Lions: Year one for Patricia is a brutal one, finishing 8-8. Golden Tate leaves the team by the end of the year.
Green Bay Packers: Finishes last in the NFC North, McCarthy spends the off-season in the hottest of seats.
Houston Texans: Watson cannot stay healthy, Texans take last in the AFC South. Hopkins requests trade, holds out prior to start of 2019 season.
Indianapolis Colts: Andrew Luck finishes in the Top 10 at his position, the Colts edge the Jaguars out of the play-offs at the wire.
Jacksonville Jaguars: Fournette misses at least 5 games, Jaguars miss the play-offs despite another stellar showing on defense.
Kansas City Chiefs: Andy Reid reformats his offense around Mahomes successfully but loses out to the Chargers for #1 in the AFC West.
Miami Dolphins: Finishes the season at the second-worst team in the NFL, drafts a new QB second overall.
Minnesota Vikings: Kirk Cousins earns the Superbowl MVP and establishes himself as a truly elite QB.
New England Patriots: Burkhead ends up hurt leading to Sony Michel taking the spotlight winning the OROY award. Belichick leaves NE after the season ends.
New Orleans Saints: Saints' running game collapses leading to a return of gun-slinging Drew Brees who puts up 4,000 yards through the air.
New York Giants: Despite the note-worthy additions on offense, the Giants battle fiercely with the 'skins for last place in the NFC East. Drafts a QB 6th overall.
New York Jets: Darnold busts spectacularly, Jets remain in the basement but still manage to beat the Patriots once.
Oakland Raiders: Gruden experiment fails catastrophically, Raiders take dead last leading to Carr's replacement being drafted first overall.
Philadelphia Eagles: Nearly repeats thanks to Pederson's genius coaching but loses to the Vikings in the NFC Conference championships. Wentz regresses.
Pittsburgh Steelers: Steelers narrowly lose the Superbowl to the Vikings in a shootout. 42 - 38.
San Diego Chargers: Chargers sign Dez Bryant to line up next to Keenan Allen, make it to the Division round but lose it to the Titans.
San Francisco 49ers: Niners make the play-offs, but are eliminated in the wildcard round, both JimmyG and McKinnon finish in the Top 12 of their positions.
Seattle Seahawks: Seahawks finish the year with a 5-11 record. Wilson ends up on IR for the second half of the season.
St. Louis Rams: The Great Show on Turf 2.0 fizzles out, Rams eliminated in the Divisional round. Suh leaves the Rams after one season.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: The Buccaneers turn their season around after Winston's 3-game suspension, take 3rd in the NFC South.
Tennessee Titans: The Titans win their division thanks to their newly minted elite defense.  Vrabel wins Coach of the year.
Washington Redskins: Alex Smith is miserable in Washington, Guice ends up the worst bust of the rookie RBs. Redskins prove to be nearly impossible to watch. Again.

Bold seasonal calls: 

 

1. Ty Montgomery outscores Dalvin Cook

 

2. Michael Gallup outscores Allen Robinson and Brandin Cooks

 

3. Jerick McKinnon outscores Le'Veon Bell

 

4. Jordan Reed outscores Evan Engram and David Njoku combined

 

5. Kenny Stills outscores Tyreek Hill

1 .0% chance without an injury.

2. 0% chance without an injury to Robinson. Cooks is a remote possibility if Gallup is the #1 WR from day 1. 

3. 0% chance without an injury or suspension. 

4. Unlikely, but Reed could have a huge year IF he stays healthy.

5. This one could actually happen if Watkins emerges as the number 1, and Stills has a good year.

Stop with the qualifiers. Nothing worse than cowardly criticism of a bold take ("without an injury"). Especially in the bold predictions thread.

Fine, I rescind the qualifiers. 3 of those predictions are absurd, not bold. Yes, I get that it's the "Bold" predictions thread. I've made some bold predictions in here too. However, Ty Monty over Cook, and Gallup over ARob are much more crazy than bold, no matter how excited you are about Gallup's path to targets, or Monty's role as a pass catching back.

 

If you're okay with those, here are bold predictions from similar ADP players. 

 

Corey Clement will outscore Leonard Fournette

Danny Amendola will outscore Stefon Diggs

 

Meanwhile, McKinnon over Bell is the most unlikely, given how consistently excellent Bell has been. I know people are ridiculously high on McKinnon, but he is not in the same conversation as Bell. 

 

Honestly, I hate to be "that" guy, right now.

Buffalo- No QB gets more than 7 starts this year

Miami- Albert Wilson becomes a solid WR3 in fantasy

New England- Jordan Matthews becomes an every week WR2.  NE still wins East

NY Jets- Sam Darnold starts right away and with lack of receiving options, Chris Herndon is a top 10 TE in fantasy

Baltimore- They'll finish as the #1 fantasy D,  Hurst/Andrews combine close to top 5 TE fantasy points

Cincy- Frustrated after a bad start, the Bengals trade AJ Green before the deadline

Cleveland- They have a lot of talent and make the playoffs

Pittsburgh- With Bryant's targets gone, JuJuSmith Schuster comes within top 5 fantasy WRs

Houston- Watson is figured out and has a sophomore slump in year 2 but HOU makes the playoffs and Watson flashes there

Indy- Jack Doyle puts up top 3 fantasy TE numbers with Luck back and lack of reliable receivers

Jacksonville- With a tough early schedule, The Jags start 2-6 and struggle to recover

Tennessee- Matt Lafleur in '16 turned Matt Ryan into gold, '17 Goff into gold, Mariota will put up top 3 fantasy QB #s as TEN makes playoffs

Denver- D will put up +20 fantasy points vs Seattle in Week 1 and will be the #1 waiver wire pick in FAAB

KC- Mahomes is good as advertised, puts up air show with Tyreke, Watkins and Kelce and KC wins AFC West again

LA Chargers-  LA will fall on tough luck again with injuries as they'll lose key piece on offense & defense struggling to get to .500

Oakland- Amari Cooper solidifies himself as first round pick in '19 drafts but OAK falls short of playoffs

Dallas- Dak gets benched at some point for poor play

NY Giants- They'll pull a Dallas from a few years ago as Barkley will live up to expectations and Odell has a resurgence.  They'll win NFC East.

Philly-  They'll be the six seed in the NFC as the defense regresses

Washington- Jordan Reed plays 13 games

Chicago- excellent rush attack with top notch D gets them in the playoffs as a WC

Detroit- Golladay becomes a WR2 after Tate or Marvin Jones goes down with injury

Green Bay- #1 seed in NFC and this time they're going back to the Super Bowl

Minnesota- Cousins melts down in final four weeks (3 games on road) to keep Vikings from playoffs

Atlanta- Tevin Coleman finishes with better fantasy numbers than Freeman and ATL wins the South 

Carolina-  Norv Turner doesn't mesh well with the offense and is fired shortly into the season 

New Orleans- Kamara sees TD regression, gets dinged up and has sort of a sophomore slump season

Tampa- Ryan Fitzpatrick goes 2-1 during Winston's suspension but the Bucs go hot and cold during Winston's starts

Arizona- Bradford gets injured in preseason.  Rosen starts Week 1

LA Rams- Go 2-4 in their final 6 games to just miss playoffs which includes Suh giving up on plays, Peters losing his composure and drawing a crucial 4th quarter penalty and Goff making some bad crucial throws.  SF/Rams Week 17 will be winner goes to playoffs match  

Seattle- Russell Wilson gets pounded by Von Miller in the first game and deals with injuries all year long.  The Seahawks collapse and get #1 pick

SF- The Niners make the playoffs with Breida/McKinnon splitting work.  SF loses a playoff game because of late game playcalling by Shanahan

Many of these are not bold, I recognize that, but I did a prediction for each team.  Ones I thought were truly bold are in bold.

 

Pats - Chris Hogan ends up a top 18 WR

Jets - Sam Darnold takes over in the 5th Game, and proceeds to put up top 12 numbers the final three quarters of the season.

Dolphins - Kenyan Drake is the only player on the team to finish in the top 25 at his position.

Bills - Lesean McCoy plays less than 8 games, and finishes outside the top 30

 

Steelers - Antonio Brown sets the NFL receptions record as Ben freelances way more without Haley around.

Bengals - After a sub-par first half of the season with Joe Mixon, the Bengals rely more on 26 yr old Giovanni Bernard who becomes a top 12 PPR back in the 2nd half.

Browns -  Josh Gordon regains form for 70-1,300-10 to finish as a top 10 WR

Ravens - Able to hold off Lamar Jackson all season with 11 wins, Joe Flacco puts up career highs with 4,400 yds and 28 TD.

 

Titans - Corey Davis hype train smashes into a wall as he finishes outside the top 40 WR while Rishard Matthews again is the most reliable/consistent option.

Jaguars - overconfident from the surprise 2017, they fail to break .500, with Marquise Lee being the only player to exceed his statistical ranking from prior year.

Colts - Andrew Luck regains form and finishes as a top 7 QB option under the tutelage of Frank Reich

Texans - Deshaun Watson doesn't miss a beat, and leads the Texans to the #1 Seed in the AFC, and the #1 QB ranking.

 

Raiders - Derek Carr establishes career highs in both yards (4,400) and TD (34) while the Raiders support three different 1,000 yard WR.

Chiefs - Pat Mahomes does his best Jay Cutler mixing jaw dropping ability with head scratching inconsistency en route to an 18th overall finish and 8-8 record.

Broncos - After a 2-0 start, a Case Keenum injury sends the team into immediate free-fall with a 4-12 record, and little value from the entire team for fantasy purposes.

Chargers - Melvin Gordon and the Chargers finally put an injury free season together, and he ends up the #1 RB in all of fantasy.

 

Redskins - Alex Smith leads the Redskins to the Division Title, and he leads Jamison Crowder to career highs of 80-1,120-8

Cowboys - with quite possibly the worst passing game in the NFL, the Cowboys are unable to mask Dak Prescott and finish 6-10 while he is outside the top 25 QB.

Eagles - Zack Ertz finishes as #1 TE.  But losing OC Reich, and oozing Hubris, they fail to make the playoffs as Wentz stats look closer to 2016 than 2017.

Giants - Riding the back of rookie Saquon Barkley, the Giants return to the playoffs, while Sterling Shepard (due to OBJ injury/holdout) is the most productive WR.

 

Vikings - Kyle Rudolph will be a top 4 TE

Bears - Tarik Cohen ends the season top 12 in PPR at RB

Lions - Kenny Golloday will be impossible to hold back, as he leads the Lions in Receiving Yards

Packers - the #1 seed in the NFC, but shocked in the Divisional Round as their inability to stretch the field is exposed.  Ty Williams finishes highest ranked RB.

 

Saints - Fail to make the playoffs, but Brees still throws for 40 TD for the first time since 2012.

Panthers - Cam Newton transitions into a pure pocket passer and rushes for a career low in attempts, yards, and TD while leading the Panthers to Division Title.

Falcons - Julio Jones contract issues linger as he puts up his worst receptions and yards since 2013.

Bucs - Dirk Koetter is fired after Week 7, when the Bucs go 0-6 with a loss to the Browns.  Lost season for everyone except Mike Evans who finishes top 5 as WR.

 

49'ers - Jimmy Garoppolo wins league MVP in year 2 of Shanahan's system, similar to Matt Ryan.  George Kittle ends season in top 10 TE.

Seahawks - Chris Carson regains lead dog status after his ability is impossible to deny despite rookie threat Rashaad Penny.

Rams - Brandin Cooks finishes outside the top 50 WR, as he resumes Sammy Watkins enigmatic decoy role.

Cardinals - on the clock for the 1st pick in the draft in 2019, going 2-14.  Rosen takes over in week 5, and finishes with more INT than TD.

Webb is the best QB on NY Giants roster.  Coaching staff realizes this by week 5 and makes the change.
