Despite a Set of Beast RBs, KP 2.0 Needs Roster Improvements

Draft Summary

Look, KP 2.0, not everyone achieves the "above" in "above average," it has to be earned. Just be happy being an average GM, and maybe with a little hard work and a better draft next season, your team will reach that milestone. KP 2.0 didn't kill their playoff aspirations with this draft, but they'll have to do some extra work to get there. For now, they're projected to finish in sixth-place in P-TOWN HOES League at 6-7-0 (2,021 points). They wanted to shore up any RB concerns early, using three of their first five draft picks to draft RBs Matt Forte (first round), Justin Forsett (third round), and Carlos Hyde (fifth round). KP 2.0 will rely heavily on this group, as they are the best group of RBs 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.

Keeper Summary

KP 2.0 took advantage of their only keeper spot to hold on to Matt Forte (14.8 ADP). From an ADP perspective, he is less valuable than a first-round draft pick.

Schedule

KP 2.0 should use Week 9 to consider life's great mysteries, like why Greenland is ice and Iceland is green. It would be better than checking fantasy football that week. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have one of the weakest schedules. 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 KP 2.0.

Draft Notes

  • Asset Management

    KP 2.0 is loaded at RB and TE. Could they be willing to leverage some of that talent and listen to trade offers from other teams in P-TOWN HOES League?

  • Team of Champions

    KP 2.0 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, Justin Forsett, and Jeremy Maclin).

  • Apparently ADP is Overrated

    With their ninth-round pick, KP 2.0 pulled the trigger. They took Marques Colston at pick number 87 despite an ADP of just 109.7 across all Yahoo! leagues.

  • Insider Trading?

    Brian Quick is owned in only 5% of all Yahoo! leagues. Let's hope that a.) KP 2.0 has some solid insider sources, or b.) he's a close friend of the family.

Player Analysis

    • Matt Forte, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 7
    The Back to Target

    It's hard to ignore just how involved Forte is in Chicago's offensive scheme. He led all RBs with 130 total targets in 2014 -- more than DeMarco Murray (64) and Jamaal Charles (59) combined.

    • Dez Bryant, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 14
    The Power of Persuasion

    Now would be a reasonable time for KP 2.0 to encourage the P-TOWN HOES League to raise the value of receptions. They snagged Dez Bryant and his 87 projected catches (ranked 10th in the NFL).

    • Justin Forsett, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 27
    Feel the Rhythm, Feel the Rhyme

    Get on up, it's Justin Forsett time! He's predicted to run cool this season with 212 projected points.

    • Jimmy Graham, TE
    • Round 4, Pick 34
    Will His Production Drop-Off?

    KP 2.0 sure hopes not. Though he might not put up Saints-esque numbers, Graham is almost certain to be one of Russell Wilson's favorite targets moving forward.

    • Carlos Hyde, RB
    • Round 5, Pick 47
    Finding Paydirt

    With 8.4 rushing TDs, Carlos Hyde is projected to finish seventh in the NFL in that category.

Best Available

With three subpar positions on KP 2.0, QB and WR are expected to be the worst of those potential areas of need.

    • Teddy Bridgewater
    • Rank 104, ADP 119
    • Colin Kaepernick
    • Rank 108, ADP 124
    • Roddy White
    • Rank 81, ADP 79
    • DeVante Parker
    • Rank 131, ADP 127
  • Bye Week Points Lost

    Bars above zero indicate a pick was selected later than a player's ADP. Bars below zero show players that were taken earlier than their ADP.

  • Avg Points by Position vs League

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..."
