Congratulations, Danny O'Shea has earned a participation award. Because that's just about all they did in this draft, participate. This delightful roster (for the opposition) is projected to finish 11th in LongDongs League with a record of 2-11-0 (1,442 points).
Danny O'Shea took advantage of all three of their keeper positions. Their top-ranked retained players from an ADP perspective were: LeSean McCoy (29.7 ADP), T.Y. Hilton (31.8 ADP), and Latavius Murray (52.4 ADP). From an ADP perspective, their top-ranked keeper (LeSean McCoy) is less valuable than a first-round draft choice. Overall, the three keepers on Danny O'Shea are projected to be substantially less productive (by 15.2%) than the draft picks they replaced.
Week 10 is not looking like a fun one for fantasy football. Danny O'Shea should look into the joys of scrapbooking, or bird-watching, or just anything that isn't fantasy football. It might not be pretty. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have a weaker-than-average slate. Danny O'Shea has the opportunity to close with a hot streak, as the last four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.
Picking starting RBs should be an effortless exercise most weeks for Danny O'Shea, as there's a healthy projected point difference between their third-ranked (Latavius Murray) and fourth-ranked (Derrick Henry) RBs.
Stockpiling Talent at TE
Danny O'Shea should be in good shape with five position groups projected to be better-than-average. TE is definitely the strongest among them.
Danny O'Shea may have to rely on a Ouija board each week. Their top-drafted QB (Derek Carr) and second-drafted QB (Jameis Winston) have fairly similar seasonal point projections.
Show Some ID
Danny O'Shea isn't afraid to rob the cradle, drafting the youngest team in the league with an average of just 4.1 years of NFL experience.
Decent Idea, Mediocre Execution
Danny O'Shea will need a hand from the waiver wire in Week 6, as their only K (Blair Walsh) and only DEF (Minnesota) will both be on bye that week.
Danny O'Shea minimized risk by choosing eight consistent players among their 15 picks.
Apparently ADP is Overrated
- LeSean McCoy, RB
- Round 1, Pick 7
With their first-round pick, Danny O'Shea pulled the trigger. They took LeSean McCoy at pick number 7 despite an ADP of just 29.7 across all Yahoo! leagues.
- Brandin Cooks, WR
- Round 4, Pick 43
Danny O'Shea may have found a gem in the fourth round, grabbing Brandin Cooks (43rd overall pick vs. ADP of 23.7).
A Big, Strong Weapon
- Coby Fleener, TE
- Round 6, Pick 67
Coby Fleener ranks fourth in the LongDongs League among TEs with 129 projected fantasy points.
Was the 79th Pick the Right Time for John Brown?
- John Brown, WR
- Round 7, Pick 79
Danny O'Shea apparently believes it is. The Cardinals' wide receiver is projected to get 145 points this year, just a bit better than last year.
If Danny O'Shea is looking to make a roster move, DEF is a position they could look to upgrade first.
- Cincinnati Defense
- Rank 201, ADP 137
- Pittsburgh Defense
- Rank 219, ADP 134
- Green Bay Defense
- Rank 246, ADP 133
- Indianapolis Defense
- Rank 253, ADP 129

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.
