Maybe Cobra Kai was out partying with Gronk and autodrafted? Hopefully that's their excuse as they are projected to finish seventh in CP Power League with a record of 4-10-0 (1,569 points). They loaded up on pass-catching weapons early on, using four of their first seven selections to acquire WRs Julio Jones (first round), Jarvis Landry (fourth round), Josh Gordon (sixth round), and Kelvin Benjamin (seventh round). This group will have to produce in order for Cobra Kai to have a good season, as they are the best group of WRs in the league.
Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, Cobra Kai 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 schedule. In addition to having the third-most grueling overall schedule, Cobra Kai has the second-easiest first four games of the season.
A Pair of Strengths
Cobra Kai has two positional units projected to be better than the league average, QB and WR.
With an average of just 4.9 years of NFL experience, Cobra Kai has assembled the youngest team in the league.
Team of Champions
Cobra Kai is fielding a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, four of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most championship rosters across all Yahoo! leagues, including Julio Jones, Doug Martin, and Cam Newton.
Returning to Greatness
If special teams contributions count in CP Power League, Cobra Kai may have found a gem in Ameer Abdullah. Including his 596 projected return yards, he ranks seventh in the league with 1,545 all-purpose yards.
Just Heave it to Julio
- Julio Jones, WR
- Round 1, Pick 3
The lone NFL player to see 200 targets last season, only DeAndre Hopkins appeared on more championship rosters than Jones in 2015.
Martin is Hungry
- Doug Martin, RB
- Round 2, Pick 14
And he'll get plenty of chances to feast this season, projected to rank sixth in the NFL with 306 touches.
Did Cobra Kai Just Dab?
- Cam Newton, QB
- Round 3, Pick 19
Among QBs last season, only Tom Brady appeared on more first-place fantasy rosters than Carolina's signal-caller.
Jumping on Jarvis:
- Jarvis Landry, WR
- Round 4, Pick 30
Cobra Kai may see some WR1 potential in Landry, who was one of three players (along with Julio Jones and Antonio Brown) to see double-digit targets in each of the final four weeks of 2015.
Let Me Check it Again
- Josh Gordon, WR
- Round 6, Pick 46
Why can't I find Josh Gordon on my draft cheat sheet? Oh wait, here he is under "mid-to-late-round flier."
With four below-average positions on Cobra Kai, TE and RB are projected as especially weak units that should be upgraded first.
- Tyler Eifert
- Rank 116, ADP 108
- Jared Cook
- Rank 125, ADP 128
- Duke Johnson Jr.
- Rank 80, ADP 107
- Derrick Henry
- Rank 83, ADP 107

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.
