Led by a Stellar WR Corps, Kiss the Ring Has the Studs to Reach Playoffs

Draft Summary

Playoffs?! Are you kidding me, playoffs?! Actually, yeah that could happen. Kiss the Ring put together a quality team and is projected to finish in fifth-place in Welcome Levi Stadium League at 7-7-0 (1,710 points). They stocked up on pass catchers right out of the gate using their top three selections to snag WRs Demaryius Thomas (7th overall), A.J. Green (14th), and Alshon Jeffery (27th). These players will be heavily relied upon by Kiss the Ring, as they are the best group of WRs in the league.

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

Schedule

While Week 4 has the most players on bye for Kiss the Ring (five), Week 9 is actually projected to have the team's highest amount of idle fantasy points. Looking at the entire season, they have a more-challenging-than-average schedule. Corresponding with the fifth-most grueling overall schedule, Kiss the Ring also has the second-most difficult last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • A Pair of Strengths

    Kiss the Ring has two positional units projected to be better than the league average, WR and DEF.

  • Show Some ID

    Kiss the Ring isn't afraid to rob the cradle, drafting the youngest team in the league with an average of just 4.3 years of NFL experience.

  • Team of Champions

    Kiss the Ring 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 (Demaryius Thomas, Alshon Jeffery, and DeSean Jackson).

  • It's How You Finish

    Kiss the Ring made every other squad look silly after some amazing halftime adjustments, accumulating the most projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

  • A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?

    Kiss the Ring grabbed a sleeper in Jake Locker with pick No. 147.

  • My One and Only

    Ignoring roster depth, Kiss the Ring chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).

    • Round 4, Pick 34
    If it Ain't Broke

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..."
