Fantasy Forecast: Early season corrections

Every year, the talking heads (myself included) inundate the readers and listeners with a host of candidates to regress, step up, find new roles and maintain previous production. Every year, we're wrong on so, so many of those predictions.

As such, it's time to take a step and recollect our thoughts with the new information available to us. What has gone right? Who has surprised even the most unsurprising of people?
