Despite a Powerful Set of RBs, BRUNSWICK COWBOYS Probably Should Have Done Some Research

Draft Summary

"With the fourth pick in the draft, BRUNSWICK COWBOYS selects: Tim Tebow." OK maybe it wasn't that bad, but it might as well have been. Despite being gifted a favorable draft position (fourth), BRUNSWICK COWBOYS is expected to struggle, finishing eighth in ONLY 8 C League with a record of 0-13-0 (5,076 points). They went after guys who can tote the rock with their early picks, using three of their first five picks to scoop up RBs Adrian Peterson (first round), Jeremy Hill (second round), and Melvin Gordon (fourth round). These players will be heavily relied upon by BRUNSWICK COWBOYS, as they are the highest-scoring group of RBs in the league.

Yikes. At least it can't get any worse. In fact, if you nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame, you'll be an official nominee. Feel better?


While Week 9 has the most players on bye for BRUNSWICK COWBOYS (seven), Week 5 is actually projected to have the team's highest number of idle fantasy points. Looking at the entire season, they have the toughest slate. Along with having the most taxing overall schedule, BRUNSWICK COWBOYS has the league's toughest first four games and softest last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Carrying the Load

    BRUNSWICK COWBOYS has four above-average positions with RB and WR projected to lead the way.

  • Show Some ID

    BRUNSWICK COWBOYS isn't afraid to rob the cradle, drafting the youngest team in the league with an average of just 5 years of NFL experience.

  • Super Sleepers

    At picks No. 196 and 212, BRUNSWICK COWBOYS snagged a couple of late-round fliers with upside in Ameer Abdullah and Marcus Mariota.

  • A Multifaceted Machine

    Ellington is a dual-threat back for BRUNSWICK COWBOYS, racking up points on the ground and through the air. He ranks fifth among RBs in projected receiving yards with 470.

  • Dual-Threat Dynamo

    Marcus Mariota can deliver fantasy glory to BRUNSWICK COWBOYS with his arm and his legs. Mariota has 549 projected rushing yards, and ranks fourth among QBs in that category.


    Grabbing Asa Jackson at pick 237 was, let's say, conceptually adventurous. Jackson is owned on just a few rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.

Player Analysis

    • A. Peterson, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 4
    Adrian Peterson Doesn't Read the Playbook

    The playbook reads him. BRUNSWICK COWBOYS should be in decent shape if Peterson gets his 333 projected touches this year.

    • Jeremy Hill, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 13
    Old Fashioned

    BRUNSWICK COWBOYS stuck to the tried-and-true fantasy strategy of going RB-RB to start the draft, taking Adrian Peterson and Jeremy Hill before targeting other positions.

    • Julio Jones, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 20
    Hopping for Julio

    Jones was the lone NFL player to log 30 catches of at least 20 yards last season, and only Odell Beckham, Jr. averaged more receiving yards per game in 2014.

    • Melvin Gordon, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 29
    Rarely Seen in the Wild

    With 1,189 projected yards on the ground, Melvin Gordon is an elusive three-down back.

    • Mike Evans, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 36
    On a Scale of 1 to America

    How free will Mike Evans get in the secondary? He's projected to put up 1,262 receiving yards this year.

Best Available

BRUNSWICK COWBOYS has a couple positions they may look to upgrade (QB and TE), but QB is the area they'll want to focus their attention first.

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..."
