Led by a Quality Group of RBs, Irish CoCo's Team Is a Team to Keep an Eye On

Draft Summary

Irish CoCo's Team figures to be in the mix for a playoff spot all season, taking the third overall draft slot and turning it into a solid team that's expected to go 7-6-0 (1,604 points). With that record, they will likely finish sixth in Stampede Blue League 6 League. Despite having five WRs on the roster, Irish CoCo's Team might need to hire a WR scout to watch the waiver wire. Their receivers are projected to average 181 points this season, which is less than the league average of 202. They landed the highest-scoring group of RBs in the league, as they added Adrian Peterson, Arian Foster, Steven Jackson, and Maurice Jones-Drew.

Nice draft. If there were a Fantasy Football Hall Of Fame, you should nominate yourself. Wait, there is? And you can??

Schedule

Irish CoCo's Team should use Week 10 to consider life's deeper mysteries, like why do we park in a driveway but drive on a parkway? It will be better to think about that than to check fantasy football. They have five players and the most projected fantasy points on bye that week. Taking a look at the entire season from start to finish, they have one of the softest schedules. Along with the fourth-easiest overall schedule, both the first four games and last four games of the season are about league-average difficulty for Irish CoCo's Team.

Draft Notes

  • Big D

    Irish CoCo's Team elected to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

  • Mr. Irrelevant

    In terms of projected points, the choice of Danny Amendola with the 190th pick gave Irish CoCo's Team the worst pick of the final round. This Mr. Irrelevant gets no parade, unfortunately.

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..."
