Despite a Powerful Set of RBs, TheBottomBitch Has a Solidly Average Roster

Draft Summary

Joe Theismann once said "a genius is a guy like Norman Einstein." No one will mistake the GM of TheBottomBitch for Norman Einstein after this draft, putting together a roster that is projected to finish sixth in Olson/Donoghue Football League and miss the playoffs. Unless changes are made, they will likely finish with a record of 6-7-1 (1,417 points). With their first five picks, TheBottomBitch focused on a balanced offensive attack, selecting QB Drew Brees (18th overall), RBs Todd Gurley (3rd) and Doug Martin (38th), and WRs Amari Cooper (23rd) and Randall Cobb (43rd). They also landed the best group of RBs in the league, as they have Gurley, Martin, and Rashad Jennings to lead the way.

Not bad, but you've still got room for improvement. Becoming a Toyota Hall Of Famer would certainly qualify. Nominate yourself now.

Keeper Summary

TheBottomBitch decided to disregard their only keeper spot, instead leaving their fantasy fate solely in the hands of the draft.

Schedule

Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, TheBottomBitch has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a more-challenging-than-average slate. Corresponding with the third-most grueling overall schedule, TheBottomBitch also has the second-most difficult last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Decent Idea, Mediocre Execution

    TheBottomBitch will need a hand from the waiver wire in Week 7, as their only K (Dan Bailey) and only DEF (Carolina) will both be on bye that week.

  • Team of Champions

    TheBottomBitch is rocking a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, three of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams (Todd Gurley, Doug Martin, and DeAngelo Williams).

  • No Back-Up No Cry

    Ignoring roster depth, TheBottomBitch chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).

  • A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?

    TheBottomBitch grabbed a sleeper in Terrance West with pick No. 118.

  • Insider Trading?

    Terrance West is owned in only 2% of all Yahoo! leagues. Let's hope that a.) TheBottomBitch has some solid insider sources, or b.) he's a close friend of the family.

Player Analysis

    • Todd Gurley, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 3
    Feed The Beast

    Over here we have a rarity in the wild named Todd Gurley. Projected to get a league-leading 349 touches, he feasts on feeble defenses.

    • Drew Brees, QB
    • Round 2, Pick 18
    Like Marino in His Prime

    Drew Brees is projected to lead the NFL in both passing yards (4,840) and passing TDs (32).

    • Doug Martin, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 38
    Feed Thy Beast

    Doug Martin will get the ball early and often, and he's projected to finish fifth in the league with 302 touches.

    • M. Bennett, TE
    • Round 6, Pick 58
    That Just Happened

    Why can't I find Martellus Bennett on my draft cheat sheet? Oh wait, here he is under "mid-to-late-round value."

    • Carolina, DEF
    • Round 7, Pick 63
    Was Defense the Best Choice at Pick No. 63?

    TheBottomBitch apparently thinks so. Carolina's Defense is projected to earn 185 points this year, after putting up 206 last season.

Best Available

TheBottomBitch could potentially upgrade TE and WR, but TE is the position they'll want to focus on first.

    • Eric Ebron
    • Rank 132, ADP 135
    • Zach Miller
    • Rank 140, ADP 136
    • Virgil Green
    • Rank 145, ADP 136
    • Vance McDonald
    • Rank 146, ADP 138

How We Grade

Draft grades are based strictly on teams' draft performances. This is calculated by counting the number of fantasy points teams are projected to score over the course of the season using their optimal line-ups. The grades do not take schedule into account. Because of bye weeks and other variables it is possible to earn a high grade yet be projected to finish in the middle of the pack. The opposite is also true. Bottom line: Fantasy Football is like the real game. You can draft the greatest talent in the world but you still need to manage your team every week to get the most out of that talent. As a wise man once said, "On any given Sunday..."
