Slated for a Fifth-Place Finish, FAREALDOE Will Likely Reach Playoffs

Draft Summary

FAREALDOE parlayed a solid draft slot (first overall) into a respectable performance. With a mark of 7-6-0 (1,895 points), they're projected to finish fifth in Garlo's Dominance League. They obviously understand how important the running back position is in fantasy football. They used three of their first five picks on RBs Adrian Peterson (first round), Justin Forsett (third round), and Joseph Randle (fourth round). FAREALDOE will rely heavily on this group, as they are the most prolific RB tandem 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

FAREALDOE will need to tap into their depth Week 7, as their top two projected scorers (Ryan Tannehill and Adrian Peterson) will be resting that weekend. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a more-challenging-than-average slate. Along with the fifth-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for FAREALDOE.

Draft Notes

  • Maybe You Should Add Tony Gonzalez While You're At It

    In Week 7, both Martellus Bennett and Tyler Eifert will be on bye for FAREALDOE.

  • Positional Fortitude

    FAREALDOE has four stronger-than-average positions with TE and QB projected to lead the way.

  • On the Rise

    FAREALDOE hopes to break through this season, led by four players who are projected to significantly exceed their fantasy points from last season.

  • QB Controversy?

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

  • Single-Bar Facemasks

    FAREALDOE knows this is American football, right? They elected to go with two kickers, instead of stockpiling depth at other positions.

  • A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?

    FAREALDOE nabbed a sleeper in Tyler Eifert with pick No. 140.

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..."
