Despite a Powerful Set of RBs, Suggs To Be You Has No Idea How to Draft a Winning Team

Draft Summary

Suggs To Be You should consider renaming the team "Learning Experience," because that's what this draft was. Picking sixth, Suggs To Be You bumbled their way through their picks, leading to a projected finish of sixth in The Year of Ricky's Downfall League with a record of 6-8-0 (1,546 points). With five WRs on the roster, Suggs To Be You has a quality group of receivers; their WRs are projected to average 148 points this season, near the league average of 146. They put together the bottom QB duo in the league, as they added Matt Ryan and Tom Brady.

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

Schedule

Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, Suggs To Be You has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a more-challenging-than-average schedule. Along with having the third-most grueling overall schedule, Suggs To Be You has the league's second-easiest first four games and most difficult last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Single-Bar Facemasks

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.
