Despite a Powerful Set of RBs, Asomugha to Mouth Probably Has Draft Regrets

Draft Summary

Asomugha to Mouth should consider renaming the team "Learning Experience," because that's what this draft was. Picking eighth, Asomugha to Mouth bumbled their way through their picks, leading to a projected finish of seventh in Stupid loser League with a record of 5-9-0 (1,524 points). They clearly wanted to put together a wide receiver corps early, using three of their first five selections on DeAndre Hopkins (second round), Brandin Cooks (third round), and Sammy Watkins (fifth round). They also built one of the most prolific groups of RBs in the league, as they added Ezekiel Elliott, Jamaal Charles, and Thomas Rawls.

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

Schedule

Asomugha to Mouth will need to plan ahead for Week 9, as their top two projected scorers (Carson Palmer and Kirk Cousins) will have a bye week. Looking at the entire season, they have one of the toughest schedules. Along with the second-most grueling overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for Asomugha to Mouth.

Draft Notes

  • Brett Favre is Just a Phone Call Away

    Asomugha to Mouth grabbed a couple of QBs (Carson Palmer and Kirk Cousins) that'll both be on bye in Week 9, and will be looking for a signal-caller. You can call Brett, but texting him isn't exactly recommended.

  • Good Luck With That One!

    Asomugha to Mouth will have some intriguing decisions to make each week at WR, with a narrow projected points difference between their third- (Sammy Watkins), fourth- (Jeremy Maclin), and fifth-ranked (Donte Moncrief) wideouts.

  • Strength in Numbers

    RB is the best position for Asomugha to Mouth, though DEF and WR are also stronger-than-average.

  • Show Some ID

    Asomugha to Mouth isn't afraid to rob the cradle, drafting the youngest team in the league with an average of just 5.3 years of NFL experience.

  • May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favor

    Asomugha to Mouth might need to consult a fortune teller each week. Their top-drafted QB (Carson Palmer) and second-drafted QB (Kirk Cousins) have similar seasonal point projections.

  • Risk Averse

    Asomugha to Mouth minimized risk by choosing six consistent players among their 15 picks.

    • D. Hopkins, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 9
    Diagnosis: more DeAndre!

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..."
