Just like the Chargers Ryan Leaf selection, the GM of Stalison Whitlock made some troubling decisions with their top draft slot. They're projected to finish 12th in Tom Donovan's Son League with a record of 4-9-0 (1,452). With their first five picks, Stalison Whitlock aimed for balance, selecting QB Tom Brady (32nd overall), RBs C.J. Anderson (8th) and Todd Gurley (56th), and WRs A.J. Green (17th) and Andre Johnson (41st). They built the worst QB tandem in the league, as they added Teddy Bridgewater and Brady.
While Week 10 has the most players on bye for Stalison Whitlock (five), Week 7 is actually projected to have the team's highest number of idle fantasy points. Looking at the season as a whole, they have a tougher-than-average schedule. Stalison Whitlock has the opportunity to come out firing, as the first four games of their season are projected to be less difficult than the league average.
The Heist Is On
The other league managers passed over a diamond in the rough. According to ADP, Stalison Whitlock got a steal in snatching Stephen Gostkowski in the ninth round (104th overall pick vs. ADP of 76.3).

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.
