Maybe Dik Bikum was out partying with Gronk and autodrafted? Hopefully that's their excuse as they are projected to finish 11th in Victory is Mine League with a record of 2-11-0 (1,830 points). Despite having five WRs on the roster, Dik Bikum might need to hire a WR scout to watch the waiver wire. Their receivers are projected to average 181 points this season, which is less than the league average of 197. They also built the lowest-scoring TE combo in the league, as they have Antonio Gates and Virgil Green on their team.
Dik Bikum can write off Week 5 as a scheduling injustice and use that time to consider other injustices: for example, why doesn't Chewbacca get a medal during the ceremony at the end of Star Wars? Wookie bias? They have six players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have the hardest schedule. Along with having the most grueling overall schedule, Dik Bikum also has the toughest first four games of the season.
The 12th Man Would be Proud
The fantasy hopes of Dik Bikum rest heavily on the fortunes of Russell Wilson and crew, as they loaded up with four Seahawks on their roster.
Anyone Else Need a Tight End in Victory is Mine League?
The trade market may heat up around Week 11, as both Antonio Gates and Virgil Green will be on bye for Dik Bikum.
With four better-than-average positions on Dik Bikum, RB and DEF are projected as especially strong units.
Separating the Wheat from the Chaff
At three different positions, Dik Bikum picked up projected top-3 players (David Johnson, Denver, and Russell Wilson).
Close to the Vest
Dik Bikum was focused on a squad with minimal risk, grabbing seven "low-risk" players out of 15 picks.
While the bottom half of the Dik Bikum roster is one of the strongest in the league (projected to be No. 2), the top of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 11).
He's a Touchy, Feely Kind of Guy
- David Johnson, RB
- Round 1, Pick 6
With 314 touches, David Johnson is projected to rank third in the NFL in that category. How touching, Dik Bikum.
- Russell Wilson, QB
- Round 2, Pick 19
Dik Bikum will probably regret their second-round choice. Russell Wilson, taken with the 19th overall pick, has an ADP of only 35.7 across all Yahoo! leagues.
Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?
- T.Y. Hilton, WR
- Round 3, Pick 30
Despite being an above-average player at his position, the selection of T.Y. Hilton had less value than any other pick of the round.
Better Lucky Than Good?
- Denver, DEF
- Round 4, Pick 43
The rest of Victory is Mine League overlooked a gem, and Dik Bikum made the highest value pick of the round by taking Denver.
Rethinking That One
- Doug Baldwin, WR
- Round 5, Pick 54
Doug Baldwin went with the 54th pick, but is projected to fall outside of the top-30 in the NFL in both receiving TDs (33rd) and receiving yards (31st) with 6.3 and 955 respectively.
Dik Bikum is projected to have a pair of subpar positions (TE and WR), but TE is clearly their worst unit and an area that will likely need an upgrade.
- Clive Walford
- Rank 155, ADP 129
- Charles Clay
- Rank 162, ADP 133
- Jordan Cameron
- Rank 170, ADP 135
- Ladarius Green
- Rank 176, ADP 120

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.
