RomosRing figures to be in the mix for a playoff spot all season, taking the eighth overall draft slot and turning it into a solid team that's expected to go 7-5-1 (1,283 points). With that record, they will likely finish fifth in Final Fantasy Football VIII League. They got aggressive about drafting running backs early, snagging C.J. Anderson (8th overall), Justin Forsett (17th), and Frank Gore (32nd). If these guys can do what they're expected to do, RomosRing will benefit. They are the most prolific group of RBs in the league.
RomosRing can chalk up Week 9 as a loss. They have seven 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 least challenging slates. Along with having the fourth-easiest overall schedule, RomosRing has the league's second-easiest first four games and second-most difficult last four games of the season.
Shouldering the Burden
RomosRing has four above-average positions with TE and RB projected to lead the way.
"It's Not Whether You Get Knocked Down, It's Whether You Get Up"
After drafting the fewest projected points in the league over the draft's first half, RomosRing accumulated the most during the second half. Vince Lombardi would be proud.
Great Idea, Poor Execution
RomosRing will need some help from the waiver wire in Week 9, as their only TE (Travis Kelce) and only DEF (Baltimore) will both be idle that week.
While the bottom half of the RomosRing roster is one of the strongest in the league (projected to be No. 1), the top of the roster is among the weakest (ranked No. 12).
Taking Some Time to get Warmed Up
RomosRing got off to a lackluster start, winding up with the weakest projected point total in the league during the first half of the draft.
A Pair of Proven Winners
RomosRing has a couple of fantasy MVPs in their lineup. Last season, two of their players (C.J. Anderson and Justin Forsett) finished among the top-20 players that were on the most first-place fantasy teams.
- C.J. Anderson, RB
- Round 1, Pick 8
If RomosRing had a nickel for every time C.J. Anderson is projected to touch the ball this season, they'd have 312 nickels.
- Justin Forsett, RB
- Round 2, Pick 17
There's no doubt that ball-carriers were the top priority for RomosRing, as they went RB-RB-RB to start the draft.
Haters Gonna Hate
- Travis Kelce, TE
- Round 4, Pick 41
The rest of Final Fantasy Football VIII League overlooked a gem, and RomosRing made the swaggiest pick of the round by grabbing Travis Kelce.
Derek Carr's New Toy
- Amari Cooper, WR
- Round 5, Pick 56
And now RomosRing gets to play, too. Cooper's projected to finish in the top-20 for receptions this year, something that hasn't happened in Oakland since Jerry Porter ten years ago.
Milk Was a Bad Choice
- Stevie Johnson, WR
- Round 6, Pick 65
And so was drafting Stevie Johnson, the weakest value of the round.
If RomosRing wants to upgrade, WR and QB are areas they could go after first.
- Markus Wheaton
- Rank 121, ADP 127
- Kenny Stills
- Rank 123, ADP 127
- Jameis Winston
- Rank 148, ADP 123
- Derek Carr
- Rank 154, ADP 120

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.
