After Some Early Gambles, Beef 'O' Brady CUZ Will Be Hangin' in the Basement Like it's High School

Draft Summary

Despite selecting with the fifth overall pick, Beef 'O' Brady CUZ couldn't capitalize on the opportunity and drafted a roster that will have trouble winning. Opponents will enjoy beating this team with regularity, which is projected to finish ninth in Tilt B Shift League with a record of 2-12-0 (2,114 points). They went with a balanced approach early, selecting QB Dak Prescott (5th overall), RB Jamaal Charles (45th), WR Julian Edelman (25th), and TE Martellus Bennett (16th) within the first five rounds. They also landed the bottom QB duo in the league, as they have Derek Carr and Prescott on the roster.

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

Beef 'O' Brady CUZ can chalk up Week 9 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 a less-challenging-than-average schedule. Beef 'O' Brady CUZ has a chance to come out of the gate hot and close strong, as both the first four games and final four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.

Draft Notes

  • A Talented Trio

    Beef 'O' Brady CUZ has three positions on their roster that are stronger than the league's average (TE, RB, and K).

  • Root, Root, Root for the Home Team

    Beef 'O' Brady CUZ is a believer in the hopes of the New England Patriots this year, grabbing a pair of players on that squad earlier than their ADPs might suggest.

  • Putting Their Best Foot Forward

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

  • Big D

    Beef 'O' Brady CUZ elected to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

Player Analysis

    • Dak Prescott, QB
    • Round 1, Pick 5
    Time to Sign Up for Andy Behrens' Fantasy Camp

    Despite being selected fifth overall, Dak Prescott is not projected among the NFL's top-25 in either passing TDs (33rd with 11.6) or passing yards (33rd with 1,801).

    • Julian Edelman, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 25
    PPR Superhero

    Julian Edelman is expected to be a strong possession receiver this year, and his 93 projected catches rank eighth in the league.

    • Derek Carr, QB
    • Round 4, Pick 36
    Which Do You Want First, the Good News or the Bad?

    Despite being an above-average player at his position, the selection of Derek Carr had less value than any other pick of the round.

    • Jamaal Charles, RB
    • Round 5, Pick 45
    Better Lucky Than Good?

    The rest of Tilt B Shift League overlooked a gem, and Beef 'O' Brady CUZ made the smartest value pick of the round by taking Jamaal Charles.

    • Travis Kelce, TE
    • Round 7, Pick 65
    Was the 65th Pick the Right Time for Travis Kelce?

    Beef 'O' Brady CUZ apparently believes so. The Chiefs' tight end is projected to have 185 points this year, just a bit lower than his total from 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. As a wise man once said, "On any given Sunday..."
