With Too Many Reaches Early, Downy Splooge Isn't Exactly What You'd Call "Good"

Draft Summary

Playoffs?! Downy Splooge is projected to finish in seventh-place in Sons of Light League with a 3-11-0 (1,457 points) record and you want to talk about playoffs?! Downy Splooge should just hope they can win a few games, let alone reach the playoffs. They went with a balanced approach early, selecting QB Andrew Luck (36th overall), RB Latavius Murray (20th), WR Julio Jones (13th), and TE Rob Gronkowski (4th) within the first five rounds. They landed the highest-scoring QB tandem in the league, as they added Luck and Matthew Stafford to their squad.

We're not mad. We're just disappointed. Go nominate yourself for the Toyota Hall Of Fame to make it up to us.

Schedule

Downy Splooge should use Week 6 to finally read War and Peace. Anything that isn't following their fantasy football team. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the entire season, they have the hardest slate. Along with having the most taxing overall schedule, Downy Splooge also has the second-toughest first four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Strength in Numbers

    In order, the three best positions for Downy Splooge are TE, QB, and WR.

  • Up, Up, and Away

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

  • Show Some ID

    Downy Splooge isn't afraid to rob the cradle, drafting the youngest team in the league with an average of just 4.2 years of NFL experience.

  • Checked Out Early

    Downy Splooge didn't exactly wrap up the draft on a high note, ending up with the fewest projected points in the league over the second half of the draft.

  • A Dominating Duo

    Downy Splooge has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (Rob Gronkowski and Andrew Luck) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

  • A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?

    Downy Splooge grabbed a sleeper in Lance Dunbar with pick No. 109.

Player Analysis

    • Rob Gronkowski, TE
    • Round 1, Pick 4
    ri-Gronk-ulous

    Across all Yahoo! leagues, no Tight End appeared on first-place rosters more often than Rob Gronkowski last year.

    • Julio Jones, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 13
    Downy Splooge Says 'Hello' to Julio

    Jones was the lone NFL player to notch 30 catches of at least 20 yards last season, and only Odell Beckham, Jr. averaged more receiving yards per game in 2014.

    • L. Murray, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 20
    How Rebellious of You

    Downy Splooge said 'no' to the tradition of fantasy drafting a RB early, waiting until the third round to pick up their first (Latavius Murray).

    • Ameer Abdullah, RB
    • Round 4, Pick 29
    A Choice That Wasn't Exactly Data-Driven

    According to projections, Ameer Abdullah will fall outside of the NFL top-20 in both rushing TDs (44th with 3.4) and yards (36th with 614). Seems like Downy Splooge just went with their gut on this one.

    • Andrew Luck, QB
    • Round 5, Pick 36
    Haters Gonna Hate

    The rest of Sons of Light League overlooked a gem, and Downy Splooge made the swaggiest pick of the round by grabbing Andrew Luck.

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..."
