Led by a Talented WR Corps, Shake It Goff Has a Squad Built to Reach the Playoffs

Draft Summary

Shake It Goff put together an underrated roster that might not dominate week in and week out, but will be firmly entrenched in a playoff spot by season's end. They're projected to finish the season with an 8-5-0 (1,843) record in Guts & Glory League, which will be good enough for fourth. They used their first three picks on wideouts Julio Jones (1st overall), Brandin Cooks (20th), and Mike Evans (21st), giving them a competitive "500" team that should dominate the playground in no time. If these players can play up to expectations, Shake It Goff can have some success. They are the best group of WRs in the league.

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

Schedule

While Week 11 has the most players on bye for Shake It Goff (three), Week 5 is actually projected to have the team's highest number of idle fantasy points. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a harder-than-average slate. Along with the fourth-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for Shake It Goff.

Draft Notes

  • The Best Player Plays

    Shake It Goff is the youngest squad in the league, with an average of just 4 years of NFL experience.

  • Afraid to Step Outside Your Comfort Zone?

    With eight "low-risk" players among their 15 picks, Shake It Goff is looking for dependable help.

  • Decent Idea, Mediocre Execution

    Shake It Goff will need some help from the waiver wire in Week 4, as their only TE (Zach Ertz) and only DEF (Philadelphia) will both be idle that week.

  • You Snooze, You Lose

    While the rest of the league slept on Tevin Coleman, Shake It Goff pounced on him at pick No. 140.

  • My One and Only

    Ignoring roster depth, Shake It Goff chose only one player at three different positions (TE, DEF, and K).

  • Basic Math is Optional

    Michael Vick once claimed, "I have two weapons; my arms, my legs and my brain.” With 498 projected rushing yards, Tyrod Taylor can channel his inner Vick to help Shake It Goff this year.

Player Analysis

    • Julio Jones, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 1
    Does Julio Jones Enjoy Fajitas?

    Because his total yardage figures are sizzling. Jones is projected to rank second in the league with 1,754 all-purpose yards.

    • Brandin Cooks, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 20
    Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?

    Despite being an above-average player at his position, the selection of Brandin Cooks had less value than any other pick of the round.

    • Mike Evans, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 21
    211 More Reasons to Appreciate Mike Evans

    Evans ranks 10th in the Guts & Glory League among WRs with 211 projected fantasy points.

    • L. Murray, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 40
    If it Ain't Broke

    Do fix it? Laughing in the face of decades of fantasy tradition, Shake It Goff didn't grab their first RB (Latavius Murray) until the fourth round.

    • Russell Wilson, QB
    • Round 5, Pick 41
    Effective, Efficient, and Elite

    Wilson joined Brady and Rodgers as the only QBs to throw for more than 25 touchdowns and have fewer than 10 interceptions last season.

Best Available

With four below-average positions on Shake It Goff, RB and DEF are projected as especially weak units that should be upgraded first.

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..."
