With Multiple Seahawks, South Side Hitmen Is a Team to Watch Out For

Draft Summary

Putting together a decent team, South Side Hitmen didn't want to show up the Olson/Donoghue Football League and build some unbeatable juggernaut. They instead focused on building a team with a good chance to make the playoffs. Humbly, they are expected to finish in third-place in Olson/Donoghue Football League at 9-5-0 (1,474 points). They went with a balanced approach early, selecting QB Russell Wilson (30th overall), RB Jamaal Charles (31st), WR Julio Jones (10th), and TE Rob Gronkowski (11th) within the first five rounds. They also built the highest-scoring TE pair in the league, as they have Gronkowski and Jimmy Graham on their team.

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

Keeper Summary

South Side Hitmen used their only keeper slot to hold on to Julio Jones (3.9 ADP). From an ADP perspective, he is as valuable as a draft pick in the top half of the first round.

Schedule

Week 5 would be a good opportunity for South Side Hitmen to take a yoga retreat, and who knows, having that flexibility may come in handy for the “stretch” run. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have one of the least difficult schedules. In addition to having the third-easiest overall schedule, South Side Hitmen has the toughest first four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Emerald City Expectations

    The fantasy hopes of South Side Hitmen rest heavily on the fortunes of Pete Carroll and crew, as they loaded up with four Seahawks on their roster.

  • Team of Champions?

    South Side Hitmen is fielding a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, three of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most championship rosters across all Yahoo! leagues: Julio Jones, Rob Gronkowski, and Tom Brady.

  • Big D

    South Side Hitmen elected to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

  • Tom's Trophy Delivery Service

    Only Devonta Freeman appeared on more first-place fantasy rosters than the Patriots signal-caller last year.

Player Analysis

    • Julio Jones, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 10
    Just Heave it to Julio

    The lone NFL player to see 200 targets last season, only DeAndre Hopkins appeared on more championship rosters than Jones in 2015.

    • Rob Gronkowski, TE
    • Round 2, Pick 11
    Haters Gonna Hate

    The rest of Olson/Donoghue Football League overlooked a gem, and South Side Hitmen made the swaggiest pick of the round by grabbing Rob Gronkowski.

    • Russell Wilson, QB
    • Round 3, Pick 30
    Effective, Efficient, and Elite

    Wilson joined Brady and Rodgers as the only QBs to throw for more than 25 touchdowns and have fewer than 10 interceptions last season.

    • Jamaal Charles, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 31
    How Rebellious of You

    South Side Hitmen said 'no' to the tradition of fantasy drafting a RB early, waiting until the fourth round to pick up their first (Jamaal Charles).

    • Donte Moncrief, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 50
    Rethinking That One

    While drafted 50th overall, Donte Moncrief isn't projected among the NFL's top-20 in either receiving TDs (23rd with 7.3) or receiving yards (24th with 1,014).

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..."
