Whether or not Suck my Ditka was talking trash in the draft chat room is irrelevant and you have no proof. What there is proof of, though, is a dominant draft performance by Suck my Ditka that led to a season projection of 11-2-0 (2,118 points) and a first-place finish in Another Sunday League. After exiting the draft with five RBs on the roster, Suck my Ditka is set at that position heading into the season. Their RBs are projected to average 271 points this season, right around the league average of 253. They built one of the highest-scoring groups of WRs in the league, as they have Antonio Brown, Pierre Garcon, Kendall Wright, and Terrance Williams on their team.
Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, Suck my Ditka 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 one of the easiest schedules. In addition to having the fourth-easiest overall schedule, Suck my Ditka has the second-toughest first four games of the season.
Carrying the Load
Suck my Ditka has six above-average positions with TE and WR projected to lead the way.
Separating the Wheat from the Chaff
Suck my Ditka drafted top-3 players at a trio of different positions (Jimmy Graham, Matt Forte, and Dan Bailey).
The coach of Suck my Ditka might need to flip a coin. Their top-drafted QB (Tom Brady) and second-drafted QB (Nick Foles) have very similar seasonal point projections.
Better Late Than Never
Suck my Ditka finished on a high note, accumulating the most projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.
Team of Champions
Suck my Ditka is rocking a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, three of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams (Matt Forte, Jimmy Graham, and Antonio Brown).
If other Yahoo! users are right, Suck my Ditka got a steal in the ninth round, when they selected Nick Foles (101st overall pick vs. ADP of 64.9).
Does Matt Forte Enjoy Fajitas?
- Matt Forte, RB
- Round 1, Pick 5
Because his all-purpose yardage figures are sizzling. Forte is projected to rank fourth in the league with 1,698 total yards.
A Return to Huge Numbers
- Jimmy Graham, TE
- Round 2, Pick 20
Sean Payton's return to the Saints' sideline seemed to work out for Jimmy Graham, who was owned on more championship rosters across Yahoo! than any other TE.
The Power of Persuasion
- Antonio Brown, WR
- Round 3, Pick 29
Now would be a reasonable time for Suck my Ditka to encourage the Another Sunday League to increase the value of receptions. They grabbed Antonio Brown and his 95 projected catches (ranked fourth in the NFL).
Was Joique Bell the Best Choice at Pick No. 68?
- Joique Bell, RB
- Round 6, Pick 68
Suck my Ditka apparently thinks so. The Lions' RB is projected to get 271 points this year, after producing 300 last season.
Suck my Ditka's Stud Signal-Caller
- Tom Brady, QB
- Round 7, Pick 77
Tom Brady is projected to rack up 566 points this year, enough to rank sixth among all QBs.
Although Suck my Ditka can pretty much hold tight with this roster as is, DEF is one area they could potentially upgrade if they get the itch to make a move.
- Chicago Defanse
- Rank 212, ADP 121
- Indianapolis Defanse
- Rank 225, ADP 144
- Tampa Bay Defanse
- Rank 241, ADP 141
- New York Defanse
- Rank 242, ADP 126

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.
