Selecting in the bottom half of the first round (seventh overall), The4FallsOfBuffalo can use their poor draft position as an excuse for why they choked. This team strikes fear in the heart of no one, with a projected record of 5-9-0 (1,579 points). They're probably going to finish eighth in Who Cares? League. With their first five picks, The4FallsOfBuffalo aimed for balance, selecting QB Aaron Rodgers (14th overall), RBs Todd Gurley (7th) and Mark Ingram (27th), and WRs Brandin Cooks (34th) and T.Y. Hilton (47th). They put together the best group of RBs in the league, as they added Gurley, Ingram, Rashad Jennings, and Matt Jones.
The4FallsOfBuffalo used two of their three keeper positions to retain Todd Gurley (5.2 ADP) and Aaron Rodgers (25.1 ADP). On average, their two keepers are marginally less valuable (by 4%) than the draft picks that they replaced.
While Week 7 has the most players on bye for The4FallsOfBuffalo (five), Week 8 is actually projected to have the team's highest number of idle fantasy points. Looking at the entire season, they have one of the most daunting slates. Along with the second-most taxing overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for The4FallsOfBuffalo.
A Wasted Pick?
If The4FallsOfBuffalo can't trade one of their five above-average RBs, then at least they'll be able to show off their superior depth at the position. Which, ya know, is good for something.

No RB by Committee Here
- Todd Gurley, RB
- Round 1, Pick 7

Do You Know if Aaron Rodgers is Religious?
- Aaron Rodgers, QB
- Round 2, Pick 14
With 321 projected points, The4FallsOfBuffalo is hoping Rodgers will be the answer to their prayers.

Mark Ingram will get the ball early and often, and he's projected to finish 10th in the league with 282 touches.
- T.Y. Hilton, WR
- Round 5, Pick 47
The4FallsOfBuffalo may have found a gem in the fifth round, grabbing T.Y. Hilton (47th overall pick vs. ADP of 31.8).
Was Matt Jones Worth it at Pick No. 67?
- Matt Jones, RB
- Round 7, Pick 67
The4FallsOfBuffalo sure hopes so. The Redskins' running back is projected to improve to the tune of 150 points this year, after only putting up 99 last year.
With three subpar positions on The4FallsOfBuffalo, TE and K are projected as especially weak units that should be upgraded first.

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.
