Projected to Finish Third, McAdoo it Has Great Shot at Playoffs

Draft Summary

Picking late (eighth overall), McAdoo it did what they could with what they were given. While this team isn't a juggernaut by any means, it's a team capable of reaching the playoffs if the chips fall their way. They are expected to finish third in low country with a record of 7-6-0 (1,754 points). With five WRs on the roster, McAdoo it guaranteed the WR position was taken care of. Compared to the league average of 146, their WRs projected average of 152 points won't be much different than the rest of the wideouts around the league. They put together the best TE pair in the league, as they added Rob Gronkowski and Julius Thomas.

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, McAdoo it 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 entire season, they have one of the least challenging slates. Along with having the third-easiest overall schedule, McAdoo it has the league's second-toughest first four games and second-softest last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Stockpiling Talent at TE

    McAdoo it should be in good shape with three position groups projected to be better-than-average. TE is definitely the strongest among them.

  • Risk Averse

    McAdoo it minimized risk by choosing 10 consistent players among their 17 picks.

  • Putting Their Best Foot Forward

    McAdoo it knows this isn't European football, right? They elected to go with two kickers, instead of stockpiling depth at other positions.

  • Team of Champions

    McAdoo it is rocking a team of fantasy MVPs. Last season, three of their players were among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams (Rob Gronkowski, Doug Martin, and Mark Ingram).

  • Defense Wins Championships?

    McAdoo it chose to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

  • Taking a Chance

    With their 10th-round pick, McAdoo it threw caution to the wind. They took Marvin Jones Jr. at pick number 73 despite an ADP of 90.2 across all Yahoo! leagues.

Player Analysis

    • Rob Gronkowski, TE
    • Round 1, Pick 8
    A Repeat for Rob

    For the second straight year, Gronkowski appeared on more first-place fantasy rosters than any other TE.

    • A.J. Green, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 9
    Possession is Nine-Tenths of the Law

    A.J. Green is expected to be a strong possession receiver this year, and his 90 projected catches rank ninth in the league.

    • Doug Martin, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 24
    If it Ain't Broke

    Do fix it? Laughing in the face of decades of fantasy tradition, McAdoo it didn't grab their first RB (Doug Martin) until the third round.

    • Mark Ingram, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 25
    Stolen In Broad Daylight

    Mark Ingram was the best value pick of the round and could be the cause of many sleepless nights for the other managers.

    • Jarvis Landry, WR
    • Round 6, Pick 41
    Late Bloom for Landry

    McAdoo it may be sensing some WR1 potential in Landry, who was one of three players (along with Julio Jones and Antonio Brown) to see double-digit targets in each of the final four weeks of 2015.

Best Available

With three below-average positions on McAdoo it, K and QB are projected as especially weak units that should be upgraded first.

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..."
