    Want to wager on it? Of course you do.

    Before you walk to the betting counter, review our player projections including the Top 350 Fantasy Rankings and read our value picks below.

    Passing Leader

    Favorite: Andrew Luck – 7/2
    Projected Stats: 4,804.2 passing yards, 38.8 touchdowns

    Luck is the favorite to win the passing title after finishing third in passing yards last season (4,761 passing yards). The Colts young star posted career highs in attempts, completions, yards and touchdowns a year ago. We project Indy's quarterback to finish with the most passing yards in 2015.

    Value Pick: Eli Manning – 12/1
    Projected Stats: 4,532.7 passing yards, 33.5 touchdowns

    Luck has the best odds to lead the league in passing but Peyton's little brother has value. Eli is one of three quarterbacks (Luck and Ben Roethlisberger are the others) projected to throw for over 4,500 yards. Eli also has arguably the best receiver (Odell Beckham Jr.) in football, yet has the seventh best odds to be the passing leader.

    Player Odds
    Andrew Luck 7/2
    Aaron Rodgers 4/1
    Peyton Manning 7/1
    Ben Roethlisberger 7/1
    Drew Brees 9/1
    Matt Ryan 10/1
    Eli Manning 12/1
    Matthew Stafford 12/1
    Tom Brady 20/1
    Joe Flacco 25/1
    Tony Romo 25/1
    Philip Rivers 28/1
    Ryan Tannehill 33/1
    Sam Bradford 50/1
    Carson Palmer 66/1
    Teddy Bridgewater 100/1
    Jay Cutler 100/1
    Nick Foles 100/1
    Marcus Mariota 100/1
    Cam Newton 100/1
    Russell Wilson 100/1
    Jameis Winston 100/1

    Rushing Leader

    Favorite: Adrian Peterson - 7/2
    Projected Stats: 1,344.0 rushing yards, 13.8 rushing touchdowns

    Despite only playing one game last year and dealing with off-field issues, Adrian Peterson is the favorite to lead the league in rushing. A case could be made for the Vikings' running back to be the first pick in fantasy but Peterson won't be the rushing leader. Remember, this is a back that has only played in all 16 games in a season once in the last five years and in that same time frame has finished in the top five in rushing just twice.

    Value Pick: Eddie Lacy – 9/1
    Projected Stats: 1,507.8 rushing yards, 12.0 rushing touchdowns

    No one expects Green Bay to be a run-first team while Aaron Rodgers is under center and perhaps that is why Lacy is undervalued. The Packers' back is projected to lead the league in rushing and is the only running back projected over 1,500 yards.

    Additional Value Play: Cincy's Jeremy Hill has the second highest projected rushing total (1,442.7 yards) in the NFL but has the seventh best odds to win the rushing title behind Eddie Lacy at 11/1.

    Player Odds
    Adrian Peterson 7/2
    Jamaal Charles 8/1
    Marshawn Lynch 8/1
    DeMarco Murray 8/1
    LeSean McCoy 17/2
    Eddie Lacy 9/1
    Jeremy Hill 11/1
    Le'Veon Bell 14/1
    C.J. Anderson 16/1
    Joseph Randle 20/1
    Alfred Morris 20/1
    Justin Forsett 25/1
    Matt Forte 25/1
    Melvin Gordon 33/1
    Latavius Murray 33/1
    Carlos Hyde 40/1
    Frank Gore 50/1
    Todd Gurley 50/1
    Mark Ingram 50/1
    Doug Martin 50/1
    Lamar Miller 50/1
    T.J. Yeldon 50/1
    Jonathan Stewart 66/1
    Joique Bell 100/1
    Andre Ellington 100/1
    Chris Ivory 100/1
    Rashad Jennings 100/1

    Receiving Leader

    Favorites: Antonio Brown – 11/2
    Projected Stats: 1,466.5 receiving yards, 14.6 touchdowns

    Big Ben's favorite target led the league in receiving yards last year and is the favorite to repeat. Roethlisberger threw for a career-high 4,952 yards last season and Brown was his main target leading the league in receptions (129) on his way to 1,698 yards and 13 touchdowns. Brown is No. 1 in our fantasy receiver rankings but he isn't projected to have the most yards.

    Value Pick: Julio Jones – 13/2
    Projected Stats: 1,549.3 receiving yards, 7.3 touchdowns

    Atlanta's wideout only had six touchdowns in 2014 but he finished in the top three in targets, receptions and yards even though he missed a game due to injury. Jones isn't being drafted like a stud, not only will he lead the league in receiving yards but he also has a chance to be the No. 1 receiver in fantasy.

    Player Odds
    Antonio Brown 11/2
    Julio Jones 13/2
    Odell Beckham 9/1
    Dez Bryant 9/1
    Calvin Johnson 9/1
    Demaryius Thomas 9/1
    T.Y. Hilton 12/1
    A.J. Green 16/1
    Alshon Jeffery 20/1
    DeAndre Hopkins 25/1
    Andre Johnson 25/1
    Randall Cobb 33/1
    Mike Evans 33/1
    Emmanuel Sanders 33/1
    Brandin Cooks 50/1
    Amari Cooper 50/1
    Rob Gronkowski 50/1
    DeSean Jackson 50/1
    Jordan Matthews 50/1
    Larry Fitzgerald 66/1
    Jimmy Graham 66/1
    Jarvis Landry 66/1
    Golden Tate 66/1
    Vincent Jackson 75/1
    Brandon Marshall 75/1
    Sammy Watkins 75/1
    Keenan Allen 100/1

    Marques Colston 100/1
    Victor Cruz 100/1
    Julian Edelman 100/1
    Jeremy Maclin 100/1
    Steve Smith 100/1
    Torrey Smith 100/1
    Roddy White 100/1

    04/24/2017 Highlight: With baseball season now in full swing, we can leverage our ResultsFinder tool to profile our season-to-date numbers. MLB sides, totals, and run lines have all been profitable to date, generating a total of $580 for an average $50 bettor. There are have been a total of nine "normal" or better positions year-to-date, and those positions are a sparkling 8-1 (88.9%), producing $393 in total profits. There is a ton of variance in baseball and there will be ups-and-downs along the way, but the early returns on the Predictalator's baseball projections are promising.

    The NBA Playoffs tipped off this week and the Predictalator is off to a stellar start. With a full season's worth of data to work with, the Predictalator has historically fared very well in the postseason across all sports, and this year has been no different. NBA playoff sides are 9-7 (56.3%) ATS, while NBA playoff totals are 15-9 (62.5%) through Sunday's action. A $50 bettor would have amassed $401 in total profits through the first week of the postseason alone.
