Projecting 2016 team leaders in a variety of stats, all at an irresponsibly early time

New, comments

Fun times.

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Someone is going to have to lead these Falcons in every statistical category, whatever those final numbers may be. Today, we're interested in projecting just who those players will be, even if some are (barring injury) quite obvious.

Rather than dive into stat projections, which are better left until the summer when we have a better idea of exactly who will be on the roster, we're just going to name the likely leaders in each stat category. I expect at least one of my selections to be controversial, for reasons you'll soon discover.

Predicted Leaders

All Passing Stats: Matt Ryan

Rushing Yards: Devonta Freeman

Rushing Touchdowns: Devonta Freeman
