Despite a Formidable Set of WRs, Beaver Cleavers Needs Roster Improvements

Draft Summary

While Beaver Cleavers is no world-beater, this is a team that could potentially reach the playoffs if some things go their way. Picking eighth overall, Beaver Cleavers is projected to land in eighth place in Victory is Mine League with a record of 6-7-0 (1,881 points). If they have a bad season, it won't be due to a lack of wide receivers, as they used three of their first five selections to pick up WRs DeAndre Hopkins (first round), Mike Evans (second round), and Jarvis Landry (fifth round). They put together the worst group of RBs in the league, as they added Eddie Lacy, Thomas Rawls, and Tevin Coleman.

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

Schedule

Week 8 would be a good opportunity for Beaver Cleavers to take a yoga retreat, and who knows, having that flexibility may come in handy for the “stretch” run. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have one of the most daunting slates. Along with having the third-most demanding overall schedule, Beaver Cleavers also has the second-most difficult last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Highlight Reel

    Beaver Cleavers is stacked at WR, but QB isn't too shabby, either.

  • Putting Their Best Foot Forward

    Beaver Cleavers knows this isn't European football, right? They elected to go with two kickers, instead of stockpiling depth at other positions.

  • Team of Champions

    Beaver Cleavers is rocking a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, three of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams (DeAndre Hopkins, Thomas Rawls, and Gary Barnidge).

  • Biggest Steal

    Beaver Cleavers may have found a gem in the ninth round, grabbing Larry Fitzgerald (104th overall pick vs. ADP of 64.1).

  • Digging Deep

    Tevin Coleman is owned in only 8% of all Yahoo! leagues, but will surely reward Beaver Cleavers for their faith! Or not.

Player Analysis

    • D. Hopkins, WR
    • Round 1, Pick 8
    Diagnosis: more DeAndre!

    Hopkins' breakout was just what the doctor ordered for fantasy owners last year. Only Devonta Freeman and Tom Brady appeared more often on championship rosters than Houston's star WR.

    • Mike Evans, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 17
    Doling Out Nightmares

    Mike Evans will look to haunt the dreams of opposing corners, as he's projected to finish sixth in the NFL with 8.7 receiving TDs.

    • Eddie Lacy, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 32
    How Rebellious of You

    Beaver Cleavers said 'no' to the tradition of fantasy drafting a RB early, waiting until the third round to pick up their first (Eddie Lacy).

    • Thomas Rawls, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 41
    Move Over Marshawn

    Rawls produced a ridiculous 5.6 YPC last season, and among all RBs, only Devonta Freeman and DeAngelo Williams appeared more often on first-place fantasy rosters.

    • Jarvis Landry, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 56
    Late Bloom for Landry

    Beaver Cleavers may be sensing 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.

Best Available

Beaver Cleavers has four positions that may need to be addressed at some point, including DEF and RB, which look like the biggest areas of need.

    • Green Bay 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..."
