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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The Back to Target
- Matt Forte, RB
- Round 1, Pick 7
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.
The Power of Persuasion
- Dez Bryant, WR
- Round 2, Pick 14
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).
Feel the Rhythm, Feel the Rhyme
- Justin Forsett, RB
- Round 3, Pick 27
Get on up, it's Justin Forsett time! He's predicted to run cool this season with 212 projected points.
Will His Production Drop-Off?
- Jimmy Graham, TE
- Round 4, Pick 34
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
With 8.4 rushing TDs, Carlos Hyde is projected to finish seventh in the NFL in that category.
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

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.
