Despite Some Early Steals, TRW Isn't Going to Win Much

Draft Summary

As Ricky Bobby's dad once told him, "If you ain't first you're last." TRW really took that message to heart as they're projected to finish near the bottom of league of greatness League with a record of 4-9-0 (1,639). While they'll try to blame their poor season on the bad draft slot, the other GMs will know TRW simply just dropped the ball. With seven WRs on the roster, TRW loaded up on solid pass catchers; their WRs are projected to average 125 points this season, close to the league average of 126. They landed one of the lowest-scoring groups of WRs in the league, as they have Keenan Allen, Victor Cruz, Andre Johnson, and Mike Evans for their rotation.

Stupid autodraft! Right? Since you can’t be blamed for that draft, go ahead and nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame.

Schedule

TRW should pick up a new hobby, like bird watching, during Week 4. They have eight players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have a tougher-than-average schedule. Along with the fourth-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for TRW.

Draft Notes

  • A Dominating Pair

    TE and RB are both projected to be really solid units for TRW.

  • The Sky's the Limit

    With seven players projected to significantly beat their previous year's fantasy points, TRW hopes to have found some up-and-coming stars.

  • Next Year, Just Show Up On Time

    The coach of TRW must have arrived late to the draft party. After picking up the fewest projected points in the league over the draft's first half, they accumulated the most during the second half.

  • Officially Mediocre

    While the bottom half of the TRW roster is one of the strongest in the league (projected to be No. 1), the top of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 10).

  • Fantasy Fútbol

    This is the American version, folks. TRW elected to go with two kickers, rather than adding depth at other positions.

  • Better Late Than Never

    TRW finished on a high note, accumulating the most projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

Player Analysis

    • Marshawn Lynch, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 9
    Is His Jersey Made of Honey?

    Because the projections for Marshawn Lynch are sweet. He's projected to be the sixth-best RB in the league this season.

    • Montee Ball, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 12
    An All-Purpose Stat-Stuffer

    Montee Ball is projected to finish eighth in the league with 1,454 total yards (1,030 rushing, 424 receiving).

    • Keenan Allen, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 29
    Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?

    Despite being an above-average player at his position, the selection of Keenan Allen had less value than any other pick of the round.

    • Jordan Cameron, TE
    • Round 5, Pick 49
    The Tightest of Ends

    Jordan Cameron is projected to rank among the top-5 for TEs in both receiving TDs (fourth with 7.9) and receiving yards (fifth with 835).

    • Andre Johnson, WR
    • Round 6, Pick 52
    Was Andre Johnson the Best Choice at a Pick at No. 52?

    TRW apparently thinks so. The Texans' wideout is projected to get 150 points this year, after putting up 171 last year.

Best Available

With four below-average positions on TRW, K and QB are expected to be the worst of those potential areas of need.

    • Graham Gano
    • Rank 239, ADP 146
    • Matt Bryant
    • Rank 247, ADP 135

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..."
