With a Projected Finish of Sixth, Joe J's Crazy Team Is a Team to Watch

Draft Summary

Joe J's Crazy Team delivered a solid draft performance, taking the first overall draft slot and turning it into a team with playoff potential. With an expected record of 6-7-0 (1,844 points), they're projected to finish sixth in Deflaters Gonna Deflate League. With four RBs on the roster, Joe J's Crazy Team has a quality backfield; their RBs are projected to average 171 points this season, close to the league average of 174. They also built one of the best WR combos in the league, as they added Odell Beckham Jr. and Alshon Jeffery to their fantasy roster.

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

Keeper Summary

Joe J's Crazy Team used their only keeper slot to hold on to Jameis Winston (119.2 ADP). From an ADP perspective, he is less valuable than a first-round draft pick.

Schedule

Week 8 may not be very fun for Joe J's Crazy Team, as their top two projected scorers (Odell Beckham Jr. and Eli Manning) will be off with byes. Looking at the entire season, they have one of the least difficult slates. Along with the fourth-easiest overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for Joe J's Crazy Team.

How We Grade

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.
