All through the off-season, we work to give DLF readers an edge in their dynasty leagues. That’s useless unless we can prove we’re OK at actually making decent predictions. This series looks back through our final preseason projections and sees how good or bad they were.
The Ravens D-line disappointed a little in 2018 in IDP terms. They were clearly a good unit on the field. Willie Henry sadly missed most of the year at tackle and came nowhere near the numbers expected of him. Michael Pierce, Chris Wormley, Brandon Williams and Brent Urban all played significant volume and came in broadly where they were predicted to do so. Urban had eight more solos, Pierce failed to get his sacks and a few other minor changes but none of them were big moves.
At linebacker C.J. Mosley actually came in a bit light. It’s gone under the radar a bit in the IDP world, but he had a somewhat down year. He missed almost all of weeks two and three which explains some of it but he was also just less efficient than in 2017. Patrick Onwuasor and Kenny Young picked up some of the slack together. Individually neither were useful or accurate but together they were a useful foil. This is a strange situation and will be one to watch in the off-season. Kamalei Correa is included for completeness’ sake here but was traded away very early.
