Led by a Terrific Group of RBs, The Boomstick Has a Stacked Squad

Draft Summary

Even though The Boomstick didn't have a high draft pick (seventh overall), it didn't matter, as they built a legit squad capable of taking it to any opponent that gets in their way. As far as projections go, they will probably finish third in Stampede Blue League 3 League with a record of 9-4-0 (1,626 points). With five RBs on the roster, The Boomstick has a quality backfield; their RBs are projected to average 176 points this season, close to the league average of 169. They landed the best group of RBs in the league, as they have Eddie Lacy, DeMarco Murray, and Shane Vereen to lead the way.

Nice draft. If there were a Fantasy Football Hall Of Fame, you should nominate yourself. Wait, there is? And you can??

Schedule

The Boomstick can chalk up Week 10 as a loss. They have three players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have a weaker-than-average schedule. In addition to having the sixth-easiest overall schedule, The Boomstick has the second-toughest first four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • On Autopilot

    Picking starting RBs should be an effortless exercise most weeks for The Boomstick, as there's a healthy projected point difference between their third-ranked (Shane Vereen) and fourth-ranked (Khiry Robinson) RBs.

  • The Sky's the Limit

    With five players projected to significantly beat their previous year's fantasy points, The Boomstick hopes to have found some up-and-coming stars.

  • A Dominating Duo

    The Boomstick has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Eddie Lacy and DeMarco Murray) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

  • Mr. Mendoza

    Khiry Robinson is owned in only 2% of all Yahoo! leagues. Let's hope that a.) The Boomstick has some solid inside information, or b.) he's a close friend of the family.

Player Analysis

    • Eddie Lacy, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 7
    The Alchemist

    The Boomstick chose the RB most likely to turn a small gap into TD gold. Eddie Lacy is projected to lead NFL RBs in plays over 40 yards with 3.5 and TDs over 40 yards with 1.5.

    • B. Marshall, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 18
    Stolen In Broad Daylight

    Brandon Marshall was the best value pick of the round and could be the cause of many sleepless nights for the other managers.

    • DeMarco Murray, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 31
    Is His Jersey Made of Honey?

    Because the projections for DeMarco Murray are sweet. He's projected to be the sixth-best RB in the league this season.

    • Jordan Cameron, TE
    • Round 4, Pick 42
    A Big Target in the Red Zone

    With 7.7 projected TD catches, Jordan Cameron ranks fourth in the NFL among TEs in that category.

    • Jeremy Maclin, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 55
    That Just Happened

    Why can't I find Jeremy Maclin on my draft cheat sheet? Oh wait, here he is under "mid-to-late round value."

Best Available

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..."
