The Money Shots Draft Report Card


Led by a Stellar WR Corps, The Money Shots Can Compete With Anyone

Draft Summary

Learning to handle success will be the biggest obstacle for The Money Shots, as they figure to be at the top of the standings all season. They are expected to go 8-5-0 (1,973 points) and finish in second-place in Garlo's Dominance League. With their first five picks, The Money Shots aimed for balance, selecting QB Matt Ryan (46th overall), RBs Eddie Lacy (6th) and Frank Gore (35th), and WRs Julio Jones (15th) and Brandin Cooks (26th). They ended up with one of the highest-scoring groups of WRs in the league, as they have Jones, Cooks, Jarvis Landry, and Allen Robinson on their team.

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


Week 5 could be a frustrating one for The Money Shots, as their top two projected scorers (Julio Jones and Matt Ryan) will be relaxing at home that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have one of the weakest schedules. Along with the second-easiest overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for The Money Shots.

Draft Notes

  • Asset Allocation

    TE is the strongest position for The Money Shots, though RB and WR aren't too shabby either.

  • Afraid to Step Outside Your Comfort Zone?

    With six "low-risk" players among their 15 picks, The Money Shots is looking for dependable help.

  • Great Idea, Poor Execution

    The Money Shots will need to get busy on the waiver wire in Week 9, as their only TE (Travis Kelce) and only K (Justin Tucker) will both be off that week.

  • Defense Wins Championships?

    The Money Shots chose to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

  • Super Sleepers

    DeVante Parker and Danny Woodhead are a couple of late-round fliers with upside for The Money Shots.

  • Single Serving

    Going with just a single TE (Travis Kelce) and K (Justin Tucker), The Money Shots opted to add depth at other positions.

Player Analysis

    • Eddie Lacy, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 6
    Eddie Lacy Doesn't Read the Playbook

    The playbook reads him. The Money Shots should be in decent shape if Lacy gets his 329 projected touches this year.

    • Julio Jones, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 15
    Better Lucky Than Good?

    The rest of Garlo's Dominance League overlooked a gem, and The Money Shots made the smartest value pick of the round by taking Julio Jones.

    • Matt Ryan, QB
    • Round 5, Pick 46
    Caught Reaching

    The Money Shots will probably regret their fifth-round choice. Matt Ryan, taken with the 46th overall pick, has an ADP of only 56.5 across all Yahoo! leagues.

    • Travis Kelce, TE
    • Round 6, Pick 55
    A Big, Strong Weapon

    Travis Kelce ranks second in the Garlo's Dominance League among TEs with 193 projected fantasy points.

    • Jarvis Landry, WR
    • Round 7, Pick 66
    Returning to Greatness

    If special teams contributions count in Garlo's Dominance League, The Money Shots may have found a gem in Jarvis Landry. Including his 1,218 projected return yards, he ranks first in the league with 2,169 all-purpose yards.

Best Available

DEF, the only subpar position on The Money Shots, is one area that could potentially be upgraded.

    • San Francisco Defense
    • Rank 215, ADP 140
    • Indianapolis Defense
    • Rank 222, ADP 143
    • Detroit Defense
    • Rank 233, ADP 138
    • Cleveland Defense

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..."
