Despite a Powerful Set of RBs, Cohen Seal Team 6 Is Good Enough to Barely Miss Playoffs

Draft Summary

With the right set of circumstances, Cohen Seal Team 6 could potentially make the playoffs. A tough draft spot led to a fairly tough draft. Picking 10th overall, they're projected to land in seventh place in Deal Fantasy Football League with a record of 6-7-0 (2,125 points). With five RBs on the roster, Cohen Seal Team 6 has a quality backfield; their RBs are projected to average 163 points this season, close to the league average of 156. They built one of the best groups of RBs in the league, as they have C.J. Anderson, Frank Gore, and Carlos Hyde on the roster.

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


Ever wonder what exactly was inside the briefcase in Pulp Fiction? Cohen Seal Team 6 should use Week 10 to solve the mystery, since they certainly won't be winning. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a less-challenging-than-average schedule. Corresponding with the fourth-easiest overall schedule, Cohen Seal Team 6 also has the league's second-easiest first four games and second-softest last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Highlight Reel

    With four better-than-average positions on Cohen Seal Team 6, QB and RB are projected as especially strong units.

  • Sky's the Limit

    With four players projected to significantly beat their previous year's fantasy points, Cohen Seal Team 6 hopes to have found some up-and-coming stars.

  • Great Idea, Poor Execution

    Cohen Seal Team 6 will need a hand from the waiver wire in Week 6, as their only K (Dan Bailey) and only DEF (St. Louis) will both be on bye that week.

  • No Back-Up No Cry

    Ignoring roster depth, Cohen Seal Team 6 chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).

  • A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?

    Cohen Seal Team 6 grabbed a sleeper in Robert Griffin III with pick No. 131.

  • Biggest Steal

    Cohen Seal Team 6 may have found a gem in the 10th round, grabbing Carlos Hyde (91st overall pick vs. ADP of 45.9).

Player Analysis

    • C.J. Anderson, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 10
    Anderson is Hungry

    And he'll get plenty of chances to feast this season, projected to rank eighth in the NFL with 304 touches.

    • Julio Jones, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 11
    Hopping for Julio

    Jones was the lone NFL player to log 30 catches of at least 20 yards last season, and only Odell Beckham, Jr. averaged more receiving yards per game in 2014.

    • Matt Ryan, QB
    • Round 3, Pick 30
    Take One Play Off and He Burns You

    Cohen Seal Team 6 drafted one of the most explosive QBs in the league in Matt Ryan. Among NFL QBs, he's projected to rank fourth in plays over 40 yards with 11.4 and TDs over 40 yards with 4.4.

    • Cam Newton, QB
    • Round 5, Pick 50
    Return on Investment

    The Panthers inked their signal-caller to a nine-figure contract this offseason, and Cohen Seal Team 6 hopes Cam will pay immediate dividends for Carolina.

    • M. Bryant, WR
    • Round 6, Pick 51
    Was Martavis Bryant the Best Choice at a Pick at No. 51?

    Cohen Seal Team 6 apparently thinks so. The Steelers' wideout is projected to put up 129 points this year, after getting 104 last year.

Best Available

If Cohen Seal Team 6 wants to upgrade, TE and WR are areas they could go after first.

    • Josh Hill
    • Rank 115, ADP 128
    • Owen Daniels
    • Rank 119, ADP 104
    • Pierre Garcon
    • Rank 96, ADP 116
    • Stevie Johnson
    • Rank 122, ADP 131

  • Avg Points by Position vs League
        Team     League

    The average projected points for all the players at each position versus the average projected points for all players at that position in the league.

  • Schedule by Opponent Points

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..."
