2017 Total Win Analysis

2017 ASA NFL prediction – Play UNDER 7.5 Wins for Washington Redskins

redskinsWe have the Skins pegged for a 7-9 record this season.  The offense was one of the best in the NFL last year but look for a drop off on that side of the ball.  QB Kirk Cousins has proven he can be a top 10 type QB, however he lost some serious weapons from a year ago.  His top two WR’s from last season are both gone.  Pierre Garcon, 79 catches for 1,041 yards, and DeSean Jackson, 56 catches for 1,005 yards, have both moved on taking a huge chunk out of this offense.  On top of that, offensive coordinator Sean McVay who was the orchestrator of that offense is now the head coach of the Rams.  If it wasn’t for the offense last year this team would have really struggled.  The defense was poor allowing 378 YPG which rank them right near the bottom of the NFL.  They only beat two playoff teams last year and this season Washington has 7 playoff teams from last season on the schedule.  They travel to the west coast 3 times this year and have other out of division road games in tough venues (KC & New Orleans).  This team needed a very explosive offense last year to get to 8 wins.  With the losses on that side of the ball, we think it’s unlikely the duplicate that this year.
