Coinciding with Some Early-Round Reaches, Luvs2Spooge Should Have Paid for Expert Advice

Draft Summary

Despite selecting in the top half of the first round (third overall), Luvs2Spooge might as well have been blindly heaving darts at the draft board to decide their picks. Opponents are going to enjoy beating this team, which is projected to finish ninth in BeerDrinkersUnite League with a record of 1-12-0 (2,338 points). They put together a three-headed monster in the backfield with their first three picks, selecting Todd Gurley 3rd overall, followed by Eddie Lacy in the second round, and LeSean McCoy in the third. They put together the worst WR pair in the league, as they added Randall Cobb and Tyler Lockett.

Yikes. At least it can't get any worse. In fact, if you nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame, you'll be an official nominee. Feel better?

Schedule

Luvs2Spooge should use Week 10 to finally read War and Peace. Anything that isn't following their fantasy football team. They have four players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a harder-than-average slate. Along with the third-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are pretty average for Luvs2Spooge.

Draft Notes

  • Highlight Reel

    Luvs2Spooge is stacked at RB, but QB isn't too shabby, either.

  • Up and Comers

    Assembling a squad of rising stars is key to fantasy success and Luvs2Spooge may have done just that, with five players estimated to top their prior-season numbers by a substantial amount.

  • QB Controversy?

    The coach of Luvs2Spooge might need to flip a coin. Their top-drafted QB (Andrew Luck) and second-drafted QB (Philip Rivers) have very similar seasonal point projections.

  • Tough to Defend This One

    Does Luvs2Spooge get the reason behind drafting a back-up defense? In Week 9, both Washington and Cincinnati will be on bye.

  • Nearly There

    The top half of the Luvs2Spooge roster is one of the strongest in the league (ranked No. 2). However, the bottom of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 9).

  • Big D

    Luvs2Spooge elected to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

Player Analysis

    • Todd Gurley, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 3
    No RB by Committee Here

    Look up "workhorse back" in the dictionary and there is a picture of Todd Gurley. Luvs2Spooge should be in good shape if he reaches his league-leading 342 projected touches this year.

    • Eddie Lacy, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 18
    Loading Up

    There's no doubt that ball-carriers were the top priority for Luvs2Spooge, as they went RB-RB-RB to start the draft.

    • LeSean McCoy, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 23
    Feed Thy Beast

    LeSean McCoy will get the ball early and often, and he's projected to finish seventh in the league with 296 touches.

    • Andrew Luck, QB
    • Round 4, Pick 38
    Earning His Keep

    Projections have Andrew Luck finishing with 31.3 passing TDs and 4,207 yards, good enough to rank him at second and 10th respectively.

    • Matt Jones, RB
    • Round 6, Pick 58
    Was Matt Jones the Best Choice at Pick No. 58?

    Luvs2Spooge apparently thinks so. The Redskins' RB is projected to improve to the tune of 181 points this year, after only putting up 126 last season.

Best Available

While Luvs2Spooge is projected to have four subpar positions, K is clearly their worst unit and should be upgraded first.

    • Nick Folk
    • Rank 226, ADP 122
    • Josh Brown
    • Rank 228, ADP 136
    • Cairo Santos

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..."
