1. Montee Ball Will Score 3 Touchdowns

I have HUGE hopes for Montee Ball this season. I think he’s going to be a flat out beast in this offense, and the absence of Welker means that Manning is going to rely heavily on what he knows the most. Aside from Demaryius Thomas and Julius Thomas, Ball is the guy that is going to have the most weight on his shoulders in this offense. I think if the Broncos’ offense is able to punch it close, Ball will be able to do the rest.

And who knows? He might even break a long one and give us a glimpse of those old Wisconsin legs.
