Projected to Finish Sixth, King Kong Ballz Is Good Enough to Barely Miss Playoffs

Draft Summary

If there was a Hall of Average, King Kong Ballz would have a plaque. Unfortunately, there isn't, so instead they'll just have to settle for losing more often than not. This team is projected to finish in sixth-place in ManderQuat FFL League at 7-7-0 (1,845 points). 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 Allen Robinson (second round), Alshon Jeffery (third round), and Amari Cooper (fourth round). They also built the worst group of RBs in the league, as they added Ezekiel Elliott, Jeremy Hill, and Tevin Coleman.

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


Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, King Kong Ballz has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have a more-difficult-than-average schedule. Corresponding with the third-most grueling overall schedule, King Kong Ballz also has the second-toughest first four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Big D

    King Kong Ballz elected to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

  • A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?

    King Kong Ballz grabbed a sleeper in Tevin Coleman with pick No. 133.

  • Earning His Keep

    Projections have Philip Rivers finishing with 28.6 passing TDs and 4,548 yards, good enough to rank him at eighth and fifth respectively.

  • If the Defense is Smithers, then Rivers is Mr. Burns

    Philip Rivers likes to burn defenses over the top, ranking fifth among all QBs with 11.2 plays over 40 yards.

  • Insider Trading?

    Tevin Coleman is owned in only 8% of all Yahoo! leagues. Let's hope that a.) King Kong Ballz has some solid insider sources, or b.) he's a close friend of the family.

Player Analysis

    Biggest Steal

    If other Yahoo! users are right, King Kong Ballz got a steal in the fifth round, when they selected Andrew Luck (48th overall pick vs. ADP of 36.9).

    • Jeremy Hill, RB
    • Round 6, Pick 53
    Milk Was a Bad Choice

    And so was drafting Jeremy Hill, the weakest value of the round.

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..."
