Entering the draft with the fourth overall pick, the expectations were high for Kurgans Angels. Then they drafted. Those expectations quickly vanished with a projected mediocre eighth-place finish in Takataboyz League at 6-7-0 (1,414 points). They put together a three-headed monster in the backfield with their first three picks, selecting Eddie Lacy 4th overall, followed by Alfred Morris in the second round, and Lamar Miller in the third. These guys could be the key to the season for Kurgans Angels, as they are the top group of RBs in the league.
Kurgans Angels should use Week 8 to consider life's great mysteries, like why abbreviation is such a long word. It would be better than checking fantasy football that week. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have the hardest slate. Along with having the most demanding overall schedule, Kurgans Angels also has the second-most difficult last four games of the season.
Kurgans Angels is stacked at RB, but DEF isn't too shabby, either.
The Best Player Plays
Kurgans Angels is the youngest squad in the league, with an average of just 4.3 years of NFL experience.
Good to Have Balance, Right?
While the bottom half of the Kurgans Angels roster is one of the strongest in the league (projected to be No. 2), the top of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 11).
You Snooze, You Lose
While the rest of the league slept on Devin Funchess, Kurgans Angels pounced on him at pick No. 148.
My One and Only
Ignoring roster depth, Kurgans Angels chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).
Feed Thy Beast
- Eddie Lacy, RB
- Round 1, Pick 4
Eddie Lacy will get the ball early and often, projected to finish third in the league with 329 touches.
Maybe Morris Will Surprise
- Alfred Morris, RB
- Round 2, Pick 21
Despite being an above-average player at his position, Alfred Morris was the weakest value pick of the round.
Feel the Rhythm, Feel the Rhyme
- Lamar Miller, RB
- Round 3, Pick 28
Get on up, it's Lamar Miller time! He's predicted to run cool this season with 190 projected points.
Was the 69th Pick the Right Time for Jordan Cameron?
- Jordan Cameron, TE
- Round 6, Pick 69
Kurgans Angels apparently believes it is. The Dolphins' tight end is projected to improve to the tune of 95 points this year, after only putting up 54 last year.
Apparently ADP is Overrated
- John Brown, WR
- Round 7, Pick 76
With their seventh-round pick, Kurgans Angels pulled the trigger. They took John Brown at pick number 76 despite an ADP of just 112 across all Yahoo! leagues.
Kurgans Angels has four positions that may need to be addressed at some point, including QB and WR, which look like the biggest areas of need.
- Marcus Mariota
- Rank 134, ADP 121
- Alex Smith
- Rank 165, ADP 119
- Anquan Boldin
- Rank 76, ADP 106
- Brandon LaFell

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.
