    Led by an Elite Group of RBs, Tj da Tank Expects to Factor Heavily Into Playoff Picture

    Draft Summary

    Tj da Tank delivered a solid draft performance, taking the second overall draft slot and turning it into a team with playoff potential. With an expected record of 8-5-0 (1,361 points), they're projected to finish fourth in Footballers 4 Life League. With their first five picks, Tj da Tank aimed for balance, selecting QB Tony Romo (39th overall), RBs Adrian Peterson (2nd) and DeMarco Murray (19th), and WRs Antonio Brown (22nd) and Victor Cruz (42nd). They put together one of the best groups of RBs in the league, as they have Peterson, Murray, and Fred Jackson to lead the way.

    Nice draft. If there were a Fantasy Football Hall Of Fame, you should nominate yourself. Wait, there is? And you can??

    Schedule

    Tj da Tank can chalk up Week 11 as a loss. They have three players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Looking at the season as a whole, they have the least difficult schedule. Along with having the easiest overall schedule, Tj da Tank also has the softest last four games of the season.

    Draft Notes

    • Earning Your Paycheck

      Tj da Tank will have some tough decisions to make at WR each week, with a scant projected points difference between their third- (Kendall Wright), fourth- (Torrey Smith), and fifth-ranked (Rueben Randle) wideouts.

    • My One and Only

      Ignoring roster depth, Tj da Tank chose only one player at four different positions (QB, TE, DEF, and K).

    • A Pair of Proven Winners

      Tj da Tank has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (DeMarco Murray and Antonio Brown) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

    • The Heist Is On

      The other league managers passed over a diamond in the rough. According to ADP, Tj da Tank got a steal in snatching Torrey Smith in the ninth round (82nd overall pick vs. ADP of 57.9).

    Player Analysis

      • Round 1, Pick 2
      Does Adrian Peterson Enjoy Fajitas?

      • DeMarco Murray, RB
      • Round 2, Pick 19
      Traditionalist

      • Antonio Brown, WR
      • Round 3, Pick 22
      197 Excuses to Cheer for Antonio Brown

      • Round 4, Pick 39
      It's a Bold Strategy Cotton, Let's See if it Pays Off

      Tony Romo has an ADP of only 78.9 across all Yahoo! leagues, and wasn't quite worth the 39th overall pick.

      • St. Louis, DEF
      • Round 6, Pick 59
      Was Defense a Smart Decision at Pick No. 59?

      Tj da Tank sure hopes so. St. Louis's D is projected to get 160 points this year, after producing 181 last year.

    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.
