After Some Early Gambles, RG-3-PO Needs Some Help

Draft Summary

Entering the draft with the fifth overall pick, the expectations were high for RG-3-PO. Then they drafted. Those expectations quickly vanished with a projected 12th-place finish in LongDongs League at 1-11-1 (1,371 points).

We're not mad. We're just disappointed. Go nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame to make it up to us.

Keeper Summary

RG-3-PO made use of all three of their keeper spots. Their top-ranked retained players from an ADP perspective were: Amari Cooper (29 ADP), Jarvis Landry (48.6 ADP), and DeMarco Murray (52 ADP). From an ADP perspective, their top-ranked keeper (Amari Cooper) is less valuable than a first-round draft choice. Overall, the three keepers on RG-3-PO are projected to be clearly less productive (by 17.4%) than the draft picks they replaced.

Schedule

RG-3-PO might as well plan a vacation for Week 11. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have the most challenging slate. In addition to having the most grueling overall schedule, RG-3-PO also has the second-most difficult last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • QB Controversy?

    RG-3-PO may have to rely on a Ouija board each week. Their top-drafted QB (Blake Bortles) and second-drafted QB (Ryan Fitzpatrick) have fairly similar seasonal point projections.

  • Close to the Vest

    RG-3-PO was focused on a squad with minimal volatility, grabbing seven "low-risk" players out of 15 picks.

  • Chicks Dig the Long Ball

    Steven Hauschka is projected to lead the NFL with 4.8 makes from 50+ yards.

  • A Stretch of the Imagination

    Grabbing Kenjon Barner at pick 161 was, let's say, conceptually adventurous. Barner is owned on just a handful of rosters across all Yahoo! leagues.

Player Analysis

    • Jarvis Landry, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 29
    Jumping on Jarvis:

    RG-3-PO may see some WR1 potential in Landry, who was one of three players (along with Julio Jones and Antonio Brown) to see double-digit targets in each of the final four weeks of 2015.

    • D. Thomas, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 53
    The Heist Is On

    The other league managers passed over a diamond in the rough. According to ADP, RG-3-PO got a steal in snatching Demaryius Thomas in the fifth round (53rd overall pick vs. ADP of 31.1).

    • R. Jennings, RB
    • Round 6, Pick 65
    A Bit of a Reach

    RG-3-PO went out on a limb with their sixth-round pick. Across all Yahoo! leagues, Rashad Jennings has an ADP of 110.8, but he was grabbed at pick No. 65. Patience is a virtue, RG-3-PO.

    • Blake Bortles, QB
    • Round 7, Pick 77
    Was Blake Bortles the Best Choice at Pick No. 77?

    RG-3-PO apparently thinks so. The Jaguars' signal-caller is projected to earn 309 points this year, after putting up 360 last year.

Best Available

RG-3-PO has three positions that may need to be addressed at some point, including RB and TE, which look like the biggest areas of need.

    • Kenneth Dixon
    • Rank 157, ADP 127
    • Jordan Howard
    • Rank 159, ADP 129
    • Eric Ebron
    • Rank 136, ADP 136
    • Vance McDonald
    • Rank 148, ADP 138
  • Bye Week Points Lost

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..."
