Led by a Stellar WR Corps, Legalize Weeden Is a Team to Watch

Draft Summary

Legalize Weeden took a high draft pick and turned it into a playoff-caliber squad with a projected record of 11-3-0 (2,092). They should be able to roll through most of Any Given Sunday League on their way to a projected third-place finish. They used a conservative plan early to fill out their lineup, selecting QB Cam Newton (42nd overall), RBs Doug Martin (22nd) and Jamaal Charles (39th), and WRs Antonio Brown (2nd) and Allen Robinson (19th). They put together the top group of WRs in the league, as they added Brown, Robinson, John Brown, and Marvin Jones Jr.

Looks like somebody did their homework. With a draft like that, you could nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame with your eyes closed. Go on, we dare you.

Schedule

Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, Legalize Weeden 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 entire season, they have one of the softest slates. Along with the third-easiest overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for Legalize Weeden.

Draft Notes

  • Highlight Reel

    Legalize Weeden is stacked at WR, but RB isn't too shabby, either.

  • Close to the Vest

    Legalize Weeden was focused on a squad with minimal risk, grabbing six "low-risk" players out of 15 picks.

  • Nearly There

    The top half of the Legalize Weeden roster is one of the strongest in the league (ranked No. 1). However, the bottom of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 9).

  • Team of Champions

    Legalize Weeden is rocking a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, five of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy rosters, including Antonio Brown, Allen Robinson, and Doug Martin.

  • Defense Wins Championships?

    Legalize Weeden chose to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

  • Full Control Early On

    Legalize Weeden began things with a bang, nabbing the most projected points in the league during the draft's first half.

Player Analysis

    • Antonio Brown, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 2
    Ambitious Antonio

    Legalize Weeden fully endorses the wideout's quest for 150 receptions in 2016. Shoot for the moon, Mr. Brown. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars.

    • Allen Robinson, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 19
    188 More Reasons to Appreciate Allen Robinson

    Robinson ranks ninth in the Any Given Sunday League among WRs with 188 projected fantasy points.

    • Doug Martin, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 22
    If it Ain't Broke

    Do fix it? Laughing in the face of decades of fantasy tradition, Legalize Weeden didn't grab their first RB (Doug Martin) until the third round.

    • Jamaal Charles, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 39
    Mr. Do-It-All

    Jamaal Charles is projected to finish ninth in the league with 1,438 total yards (1,096 rushing, 341 receiving).

    • Cam Newton, QB
    • Round 5, Pick 42
    The Heist Is On

    The other league managers passed over a diamond in the rough. According to ADP, Legalize Weeden got a steal in snatching Cam Newton in the fifth round (42nd overall pick vs. ADP of 20.8).

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..."
