Led by an Elite Group of RBs, F Shizzle Has the Talent to Dominate

Draft Summary

F Shizzle proved on draft day that when the lights come on, they perform, building a strong team capable of beating anyone on the schedule. They are expected to finish first in One Hit Wonder League with a record of 15-0-0 (2,587 points). RB depth won't be the issue this season as F Shizzle loaded up, drafting Marshawn Lynch (4th overall), Le'Veon Bell (13th), and Matt Forte (20th) with their first three selections. If these guys can do what they're expected to do, F Shizzle will benefit. They are the most prolific group of RBs in the league.

Looks like somebody did their homework. With a draft like that, you could nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame with your eyes closed. Go on, we dare you.

Schedule

F Shizzle should use Week 9 to consider life's deeper mysteries, like what was the greatest thing before sliced bread? No, seriously, think about it. It's better than thinking about fantasy football that week. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have one of the weakest slates. Along with having the third-easiest overall schedule, F Shizzle has the league's toughest first four games and softest last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Carrying the Load

    F Shizzle has five above-average positions with RB and WR projected to lead the way.

  • Separating the Wheat from the Chaff

    At four different positions, F Shizzle picked up projected top-two players (including Stephen Gostkowski, Buffalo, and Le'Veon Bell).

  • QB Controversy?

    The coach of F Shizzle might need to flip a coin. Their top-drafted QB (Matt Ryan) and second-drafted QB (Ryan Tannehill) have very similar seasonal point projections.

  • Close to the Vest

    F Shizzle was focused on a squad with minimal volatility, grabbing nine "low-risk" players out of 17 picks.

  • Team of Champions?

    F Shizzle is fielding a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, three of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most championship rosters across all Yahoo! leagues: Le'Veon Bell, Matt Forte, and Randall Cobb.

  • Big D

    F Shizzle elected to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

Player Analysis

    • Marshawn Lynch, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 4
    Feed Thy Beast

    Marshawn Lynch will get the ball early and often, projected to finish fourth in the league with 313 touches.

    • Le'Veon Bell, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 13
    Does Le'Veon Bell Enjoy Fajitas?

    Because his total yardage figures are sizzling. Bell is projected to rank sixth in the league with 1,577 all-purpose yards.

    • Matt Forte, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 20
    The Back to Target

    Across all Yahoo! leagues, only two RBs (L. Bell and D. Murray) appeared on first-place rosters more often than Forte last year. He also led all RBs with 130 total targets in 2014.

    • Randall Cobb, WR
    • Round 4, Pick 29
    Stolen In Broad Daylight

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

    • Alshon Jeffery, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 36
    Biggest Steal

    If other Yahoo! users are right, F Shizzle got a steal in the fifth round, when they selected Alshon Jeffery (36th overall pick vs. ADP of 23.9).

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..."
