Led by a Stellar WR Corps, Ceasar's Imperials Can Compete With Anyone

Draft Summary

Ceasar's Imperials parlayed a solid draft slot (first overall) into a respectable performance. With a mark of 9-4-0 (2,055 points), they're projected to finish fourth in Apollo M.O.V.E. League. If they have a bad season, it won't be due to a lack of wide receivers, as they used three of their first five selections to pick up WRs Antonio Brown (first round), Alshon Jeffery (second round), and Doug Baldwin (fourth round). This group will have to produce in order for Ceasar's Imperials to have a good season, as they are the most prolific group of WRs in the league.

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

Schedule

Ceasar's Imperials should drop off the grid during Week 10. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have one of the least challenging schedules. In addition to having the third-easiest overall schedule, Ceasar's Imperials also has the league's easiest first four games and softest last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Highlight Reel

    Ceasar's Imperials is stacked at WR, but DEF isn't too shabby, either.

  • Separating the Wheat from the Chaff

    At three different positions, Ceasar's Imperials picked up projected top-3 players (Antonio Brown, Greg Olsen, and Carolina).

  • Best Days are Behind Them?

    With six players projected to score significantly fewer points this season, Ceasar's Imperials will be hoping the experts are wrong.

  • Single-Bar Facemasks

    Ceasar's Imperials knows this is American football, right? They elected to go with two kickers, instead of stockpiling depth at other positions.

  • Big D

    Ceasar's Imperials elected to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

  • A Dominating Pair

    Ceasar's Imperials has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Antonio Brown and Tom Brady) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

Player Analysis

    • Antonio Brown, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 1
    Get a Grip

    Check that dude for stickum! Antonio Brown figures to be a PPR monster this season, with an NFL-leading 131 projected catches.

    • Alshon Jeffery, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 24
    On a Scale of 1 to America

    How free will Alshon Jeffery be in the secondary? He's projected to rack up 1,344 receiving yards this year.

    • C.J. Anderson, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 25
    If it Ain't Broke

    Do fix it? Laughing in the face of decades of fantasy tradition, Ceasar's Imperials didn't grab their first RB (C.J. Anderson) until the third round.

    • Doug Baldwin, WR
    • Round 4, Pick 48
    Rethinking That One

    While drafted 48th overall, Doug Baldwin isn't projected among the NFL's top-30 in either receiving TDs (32nd with 6.4) or receiving yards (31st with 950).

    • Greg Olsen, TE
    • Round 5, Pick 49
    All Over the Field

    Greg Olsen is projected to rank among the top-5 for TEs in both receiving TDs (fourth with 6.9) and receiving yards (third with 941).

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..."
