    Led by a Terrific Group of RBs, cq.noble Will Likely Reach Playoffs

    Draft Summary

    cq.noble put together an underrated roster that might not dominate week in and week out, but will be firmly entrenched in a playoff spot by season's end. They're projected to finish the season with an 8-5-0 (1,627) record in Stampede Blue League 7 League, which will be good enough for fourth. They put together a three-headed monster in the backfield with their first three picks, selecting LeSean McCoy 1st overall, followed by Andre Ellington in the second round, and Le'Veon Bell in the third. cq.noble will rely heavily on this group, as they are the most prolific group of RBs in the league.

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

    Schedule

    While Week 4 has the most players on bye for cq.noble (four), Week 7 is actually projected to have the team's highest amount of idle fantasy points. Based on their opponents' projected points, they have the softest slate. Corresponding with the easiest overall schedule, cq.noble also has the second-softest last four games of the season.

    Draft Notes

    • Maybe You Should Add Tony Gonzalez While You're At It

      cq.noble must have missed the point of drafting a back-up. In Week 12, both Greg Olsen and Heath Miller will be on bye.

    • On Autopilot

      Picking starting RBs should be an effortless exercise most weeks for cq.noble, as there's a healthy projected point difference between their third-ranked (Le'Veon Bell) and fourth-ranked (Bernard Pierce) RBs.

    • Carrying the Load

      cq.noble has four above-average positions with RB and TE projected to lead the way.

    • Fantasy FĂștbol

      This is the American version, folks. cq.noble elected to go with two kickers, rather than adding depth at other positions.

    • Defense Wins Championships?

      cq.noble chose to go with two DEFs instead of loading up at other spots.

    • A Dominating Duo

      cq.noble has a pair of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (LeSean McCoy and Josh Gordon) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.

    Player Analysis

      • LeSean McCoy, RB

      • Percy Harvin, WR
      • Round 5, Pick 49
      Returning to Greatness

      If special teams contributions count in Stampede Blue League 7 League, cq.noble may have found a gem in Percy Harvin. Including his 788 projected return yards, he ranks third in the league with 1,708 all-purpose yards.

      • Nick Foles, QB
      • Round 6, Pick 72
      Do You Know if Nick Foles is Religious?

    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..."
