Even though g unit didn't have a high draft pick (eighth overall), it didn't matter, as they built a legit squad capable of taking it to any opponent that gets in their way. As far as projections go, they will probably finish third in LongDongs League with a record of 10-3-0 (1,510 points).
g unit took advantage of all three of their keeper slots. Their top-ranked retained players from an ADP perspective were: Rob Gronkowski (8.7 ADP), Allen Robinson (14.8 ADP), and Jamaal Charles (19.2 ADP). From an ADP perspective, their third-ranked keeper (Jamaal Charles) is more valuable than a second-round draft choice. Overall, the three keepers on g unit are projected to be slightly more productive (by 2.4%) than the draft picks they replaced.
g unit should use Week 11 to finally read War and Peace. Anything that isn't following their fantasy football team. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have one of the least difficult schedules. g unit has the opportunity to exit the gates quickly, as the first four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.
g unit has four stronger-than-average positions with TE and WR projected to lead the way.
Sky's the Limit

Defense Wins Championships?
g unit chose to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.
A Pair of Proven Winners

A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?
g unit grabbed a sleeper in Tevin Coleman with pick No. 152.
A Repeat for Rob

Possession is Nine-Tenths of the Law
- Keenan Allen, WR
- Round 4, Pick 44

Was the 68th Pick the Right Time for Melvin Gordon?
- Melvin Gordon, RB
- Round 6, Pick 68
g unit apparently believes so. The Chargers' running back is projected to put up 151 points this year, after only netting 75 last year.
g unit is projected to have a pair of below-average positions (DEF and K), but DEF is clearly their weakest unit and an area that will likely need an upgrade.

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.
