Despite a Set of Beast RBs, Pork chop Has a Roster that Reeks of Mediocrity

Draft Summary

The GM of Pork chop took the fourth overall pick in the draft and turned it into a pretty decent team. Unless of course they planned on winning, because if that was the plan, then it didn't go very well. Pork chop will need to make some moves to improve their playoff chances, currently projected to finish fifth in Stupid loser League with a record of 6-8-0 (1,570 points). They clearly wanted to put together a wide receiver corps early, using three of their first five selections on Keenan Allen (third round), Mike Evans (fourth round), and Demaryius Thomas (fifth round). They also have the top group of RBs in the league, as they have David Johnson, Adrian Peterson, and Eddie Lacy to lead the way.

Not bad, but you've still got room for improvement. Becoming a Toyota Hall Of Famer would certainly qualify. Nominate yourself now.

Schedule

Whether by good fortune or well-planned strategy, Pork chop has secured a favorable bye week schedule for their superstars. Of their top five players in projected points, none share a common off week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have a more-challenging-than-average schedule. In addition to having the fourth-most grueling overall schedule, Pork chop has the league's second-easiest first four games and second-most difficult last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

    Pork chop reached twice to draft a Dallas Cowboys player.

  • Big D

    Pork chop elected to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

Player Analysis

    • A. Peterson, RB
    • Round 2, Pick 13
    Traditionalist

    • Keenan Allen, WR
    • Round 3, Pick 20

    Keenan Allen is expected to be a strong possession receiver this year, and his 99 projected catches rank fifth in the league.

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..."
