    With NFL training camps underway, we check in on a few key position battles around the league including NFL rookies. (2014 projections for rookies are based on this analysis which projects rookie seasons for all NFL prospects as if they were starters on average NFL teams).



    In the lead up to the release of our 2014 NFL Preview, we look at some of the most prominent clashes occurring in NFL training camps.

    The 2014 NFL Preview will be available on August 6th.

    Green Bay Packers – Tight End competition

    Incumbent: Andre Quarless
    2013 Stats – 312 receiving yards, 2 TDs

    Jermichael Finley's season (possibly career) ending neck injury opened the door for Quarless as a starter. In ten games as the No. 1 tight end Quarless averaged nearly three catches a game and 30 yards; the majority of those games were without Aaron Rodgers.

    Quarless, the de facto starter, would be an interesting fantasy option with a full season from Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay's up-tempo passing attack. Quarless is currently being taken as the 40th overall tight end in fantasy drafts.

    Challenger: Richard Rodgers
    2014 Projections – 445 receiving yards, 5 TDs

    The rookie third round draft pick received a lot of high praise during OTAs. One of seven tight ends on the roster, Rodgers will be active in the highly competitive battle for playing time. Rodgers biggest weakness is blocking, something the 270 pound tight end is looking to improve.

    Challenger: Brandon Bostick
    2013 Stats – 120 receiving yards, 1 TDs

    The second year player caught seven passes last season before sustaining a foot injury. The best athlete of the group, Bostick has seen action with the first team and has impressed in training camp. Like Rodgers, blocking is an area of weakness and one that could limit his potential to get on the field.

    03/13/2017 Highlight: Using our ResultsFinder tool, it's evident that the Predictalator is entering March Madness in incredible form. The Predictalator posted 59 "normal" or better plays in March (plays with greater than 57% confidence) and went a stellar 36-23 (61.0%) on those plays. An average $50 bettor would have profited $678 using our recommended wager sizes. After posting an outstanding 8-1 (88.9%) ATS record on "normal" or better sides in last year's NCAA Tournament, the Predictalator looks poised to produce more NCAA Tournament winners.

    NBA predictions continue to follow the same heat wave of college hoops, as all playable sides are 30-25 (54.5%) ATS in the month of March. More importantly, top plays continue to produce at a staggering clip, with all "normal" or better sides off to a solid 9-3 (75.0%) ATS mark in March, producing $284 in profits for an average $50 bettor.

    The Predictalator's NHL picks continue to cash in consistenly as "normal" or better ML and PL plays are an outstanding 32-18 (64.0%) on the season, amassing $507 in total profits. While the betting market has really tightened up with NHL in recent months, the Predictalator continues to find success and is now 449-367 (55.0%) on all playable ML and PL plays this season.
