Betting over-unders for 2021 NFL win totals will be a popular option for NFL futures wagering. Now that the Draft has passed, most books have released their NFL odds on projected win totals for each team. This year, the numbers will be inflated as the NFL moves to an expanded 17-game schedule.

Leading into the 2021 NFL Draft, I looked at the historical relationships between fantasy football average draft position (ADP) and NFL draft position for running backs and wide receivers, and then I compared the 2021 classes for each position against historical trends.
