Snake Mountain Draft Report Card


Despite a Formidable Set of WRs, Snake Mountain It Appears is Not Good at Drafting

Draft Summary

Playoffs?! Snake Mountain is projected to finish in eighth-place in Lion Mike's League with a 4-6-0 (2,968 points) record and you want to talk about playoffs?! Snake Mountain should just hope they can win a few games, let alone reach the playoffs. If they have a bad season, it won't be due to a lack of wide receivers, as they used three of their first five selections to pick up WRs Julio Jones (second round), DeAndre Hopkins (fourth round), and Brandon Marshall (fifth round). These players will be heavily relied upon by Snake Mountain, as they are one of the top groups of WRs in the league.

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


Week 5 might not be the highest scoring week for Snake Mountain, as their top two projected scorers (New York and Ryan Tannehill) will be relaxing at home that week. Looking at the entire season, they have a softer-than-average slate. Along with having the fifth-easiest overall schedule, Snake Mountain has the second-most difficult last four games of the season.

Draft Notes

  • Sky's the Limit

    With seven players projected to significantly beat their previous year's fantasy points, Snake Mountain hopes to have found some up-and-coming stars.

  • Miami Dolphins Fan?

    Snake Mountain reached twice to draft a Miami Dolphins player.

  • Starting Slowly

    Snake Mountain got off to a sluggish start, winding up with the fewest projected points in the league during the first half of the draft.

  • A Low Floor, but a High Ceiling?

    Snake Mountain grabbed a sleeper in Austin Seferian-Jenkins with pick No. 136.

Player Analysis

    • Eddie Lacy, RB
    • Round 1, Pick 5
    Advanced Math

    If Snake Mountain had a nickel for every time Eddie Lacy is projected to touch the ball this season, they'd have 329 nickels.

    • Julio Jones, WR
    • Round 2, Pick 16
    Hopping for Julio

    Jones was the lone NFL player to log 30 catches of at least 20 yards last season, and only Odell Beckham, Jr. averaged more receiving yards per game in 2014.

    • Lamar Miller, RB
    • Round 3, Pick 25
    Taking a Chance

    With their third-round pick, Snake Mountain threw caution to the wind. They took Lamar Miller at pick number 25 despite an ADP of 39.3 across all Yahoo! leagues.

    • B. Marshall, WR
    • Round 5, Pick 45
    Let Me Check it Again

    Why can't I find Brandon Marshall on my draft cheat sheet? Oh wait, here he is under "mid-to-late round flier."

    • Keenan Allen, WR
    • Round 6, Pick 56
    Was Keenan Allen the Best Choice at a Pick at No. 56?

    Snake Mountain apparently thinks so. The Chargers' wideout is projected to improve to the tune of 173 points this year, after only putting up 112 last year.

Best Available

Snake Mountain is projected to have a pair of below-average positions (TE and QB), but TE is clearly their worst unit and an area that will likely need an upgrade.

    • Josh Hill
    • Rank 147, ADP 131
    • Ladarius Green
    • Rank 150, ADP 135
    • Charles Clay
    • Rank 171, ADP 127
    • Benjamin Watson
    • Rank 173, ADP 123

    Bars above zero indicate a pick was selected later than a player's ADP. Bars below zero show players that were taken earlier than their ADP.

  • Avg Points by Position vs League
        Team     League

    The average projected points for all the players at each position versus the average projected points for all players at that position in the league.

  • Schedule by Opponent Points

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..."
